I live in Atlanta, GA where I study creative writing and editing in a highly regarded MA program at a top-tier state university. With over seven years of professional experience editing both creative and commercial copy as a freelancer, I have edited hundreds of pieces, including full-length and short fiction, nonfiction, poetry, publication articles, newsletters, web copy, peer reviewed articles, and more. It is my passion to help writers create polished and publishable pieces through editing and workshopping. Currently, I provide meticulous line, copy, and developmental editing for online and print publications ranging from creative to commercial:
- In creative editing, I specialize in editing and workshopping free verse poetry, with extensive additional experience with line and developmental editing fiction, nonfiction, and short stories. I am trained and fluent in the current edition of the Chicago Manual of Style and also have experience with New Oxford. I am dedicated to helping authors create content that is inventive, inspiring, and reaches it’s fullest creative potential.
- In corporate internal and external communications, I have extensive experience writing and meticulously editing internal and external content, including newsletters, social media copy, web copy, magazine articles, advertising, and more. I am experienced and highly proficient with AP, MLA, and APA styles. I am dedicated to learning your house style when requested.
Additional specialties: sensitivity reader, translations editor, grant proposals, poetry.
Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have. It would be my pleasure to work closely with you to optimize the readability, flow, and creativity of your content.
