    Editing Makes All The Difference

    United States - Last active: 8 days ago

    My platform in editing is built on years of experience as a writer and editor in journalism, combined with my academic background, and my own experience as a creative writer. I run a poetry workshop in the Twin Cities, am the editor of our forthcoming anthology, the editor of a local neighborhood newspaper and I was a copy editor for a literary arts zine in Seattle for six years. I graduated with honors degrees in Creative Writing and Journalism/Mass Communications. My graduate studies focus on narrative theory and cognitive science, so I truly understand how narrative functions. From proofreading to substantive editing, I know what I'm doing, and I will work with you on cost structure to fit your project needs and budget. I live and breathe stories and am highly capable of bringing out the best in you and your writing. I truly love editing and will work diligently and seriously to bring your work to the next level because I understand the importance of your work.
