    Nancy Moore

    Writer/editor

    United States - Last active: 07/23/2012 - Tests: 6

    I have been a creative writer since childhood, but only for my own enjoyment. Several years ago I started my own copy editing business, Get It Write!, wherein I provided only editing services. Shortly thereafter, I was asked to be the cover story writer for a local magazine, Matthews Living, which grew and evolved into South Charlotte Living Magazine. My role with the magazine expanded to writing a travel article, as well as an additional general interest article on the topic of my choice. In January 2012 I assumed the role of chief executive editor of the magazine and oversee the creative side, as well as the sales side. The magazine is published bimonthly and I am looking for other editing/writing opportunities to fill the gap, so to speak. I addition, I am an elected official in the town of Matthews, NC, serving as a town commissioner.
