I’m a self-taught freelance writer and editor, used to thinking ... morecritically, researching thoroughly and communicating effectively. This is not my day job. I take on a small number of projects which interest me in their own right, and I focus on them until they’re completed. My speculative fiction has appeared in magazines including Crossed Genres, Scheherezade's Bequest and Daily Science Fiction. My articles on alternative education, farming, spirituality, politics and mental health have been published in periodicals including The Mindful Word, Growing Without Schooling, Friends Journal: Quaker Thought and Life Today and The Grass-Roots Journal. I’ve written on these topics and more as well as editing a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction manuscripts for freelance clients. I can write for widely varied audiences but don’t do sales or SEO writing. I have practical experience as a self-taught student, as a small-scale organic farmer, and as a full-time volunteer at a nonprofit doing outreach work in an impoverished community. I’m Christian and very familiar with the Bible, and I have interest in and respect for other faith traditions; I’ve done several editing projects for a Muslim author who wanted an outside editor to point out passages and concepts which might be confusing to a non-Muslim audience. less

  • Beta Reader needed for completed 110,000 word Speculative Fiction story

    Mar 2015

    Joanna did a phenomenal job beta reading my 110k science fiction story. She exceeded what I asked for in many ways. She is smart, thorough, and attentive to details. She provided exactly what I requested, then added on additional information that was very useful. The feedback provided was on target and perfect for me to obtain a reader's view of where the story stands, what works, what doesn't, what needs clarification, and what is fine as is. I have a lot of things to think about now, and some further work to complete before I return my manuscript to my agent. She was also FAST, to the point where I first wondered if she'd actually completed the assignment, which doubled my pleasure when I determined not only had she completed the assignment but gone beyond and above as well. I highly recommend her, and look forward to working with her again in the future. She is a true Elance gem!
