    As of February 2024, I am actively looking for editing gigs, and I edit anything. A little bit about me: Hi there! I'm Kelly, and I'm a writer and editor (pronouns: she/her). From the University of Arizona, I hold a B.A. in English and a B.A. in Creative Writing with a concentration in fiction. I have 2+ years of work experience at a small traditional publisher, where I was responsible for all copy edits, proofreading, structural, and line edits for all acquired fiction book manuscripts. I edited for literary journals for 3+ years, including short stories, flash fiction, poetry, short plays/screenplays, and essays. I have 1+ years of experience on Upwork and Fiverr. I would love to offer my editing and writing services in areas, such as children's books, poetry collections, business writing, marketing copy, blogs, video game writing, query letters, short stories, essays, poetry, and screenplays. Check out my editing services. I hope to work with you!
