Lauren edits book projects and proposals, magazines, websites, and a variety of company communications. Fluent in AP, Chicago, and APA styles and with years of industry experience, she prides herself on offering advice that brings out a writer’s best work — the soundest, smartest arguments, the clearest language, and the kind of elegant structure that results in a great and marketable read without a compromise of intellect.



It was one of life’s pleasures to work with Lauren on The Matthew Effect. Her encouragements sustained me, and her thoughtful critiques made the book continuously better.

Working with Lauren Dockett was the best editorial experience I have ever had. She was professional, intelligent, generous, and humane. Authors sometimes experience the editorial process as anxiety-inducing and intrusive – but Lauren deftly neutralized such uncomfortable feelings by setting a collaborative, respectful, and open-minded tone for our communications. I would love to work with her again!

Apart from being a gifted editor and writer, Lauren was wonderful to work with from start to finish. She helped me sail through the initial proposal writing, the review process, to the final manuscript. Her warmth, support and passionate advocacy made working with Lauren a pure pleasure.

The Making of Lee Boyd Malvo, The DC Sniper would not have become a reality without the help and guidance of Lauren Dockett. She provided unwavering support and direction and guided the authors every step of the way.  She ensured that the academic value was maintained even as the need for answers was addressed.
