Inner Hierarchy Editing & Screenwriting


Inner Hierarchy

Hi, I’m Sherrill, pleased to e-meet you!

I’d be very happy to receive your #ownvoices literary fiction or nonfiction manuscript for review. Please see the website for more information and submission guidelines.

Developmentally editing your material gives me a rush! Stories want to be told. Your voice wants to be heard. My output ranges from spiritual to technical, though I’m particularly fond of writing that furthers our collective work toward creating a better informed, safer and kinder world.

A little about me: As the former managing editor for a large publishing company for English titles in Israel, I have experience in all stages of publishing. For four years I hired and managed a remote team of at least 15 copyeditors/proofreaders/producers and worked daily with a full team, including designers and distributors.

As an academic editor for two major universities here, I’ve been entrusted with material at the highest national level (see Tabansky Springer Brief, the first English-language declaration of Israel’s cyber policies).

My references derive from fiction and non-fiction works in the blockchain, cybersecurity, criminology, and psychology fields, including several top academic journal receptions. To that end, I have excellent software, expediting content checks and publishing funnels.

My blockchain content experience includes freelance work with DAOstack and Finance Magnates, for which I also performed managerial and developmental editing duties. Please see my LinkedIn profile for select publications in CoinDesk and on Medium.

I love movies! It recently occurred to me that each of my books’ first drafts are screenplays, so I’ve pivoted into this field and am currently studying screenwriting through the Story Academy | Fårösund, Sweden. I’ve also been recently hired to read for The ReelHeART International Film Festival, which puts me in daily script mode–delicious!

Please see the links below for more about my work. As a registered freelancer, I issue invoices and receipts.

Thank you,

Sherrill Layton
