    Writing, Editing, and Proofreading Whiz

    United States - Last active: 26 days ago

    Hello, I'm Jennifer (but I go by Jen), and I'm a writer and editor. I've secured a bachelor of arts in English (technical-writing track) with a minor in magazine journalism, as well as roughly eight years' professional experience in my field. Taking the beautifully crafted words of others and organizing them into the best possible version for a solid end product is something I could do every day of my life and never consider it work. The Scripps National Spelling Bee is my Super Bowl equivalent. I think language is beautiful, and I continue to be amazed by it every day! I am currently learning French, and hope to revisit Spanish one day. I've been published on HelloGiggles, xojane, and Orlando Weekly, and I'm an Amazon-published editor. Please feel free to message me for my website link (which includes my résumé and portfolio) and the links to my HelloGiggles, xojane, Orlando Weekly, and Amazon pages.

    Editing Makes All The Difference

    United States - Last active: 11 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.
