Freelance Editorial: Writing, Editing and More
Copyediting, copywriting, content writing, and proofreading skills can be contracted for individuals or businesses. I specialize in SEO driven content, including SEO blogs for businesses, and contributing essays and articles to lifestyle websites and magazines. I also create slide decks, technical documents, and press releases.
I have had editorial experience with small press publications since 2006, including back-end construction, blogging, press releases, author interviews, event booking, website and email copywriting, editing and proofreading.
Manuscript consulting and revision, creative writing workshopping, and developmental editing at any and all stages of the creative writing process: all genres welcome.
My specialties include poetry, short story, flash fiction, hybrid, young adult fiction, genre fiction, creative nonfiction and memoir, and children’s picture books. I am also interested in food-based nonfiction books and recipes. Taking a workshop-based approach, I focus on both micro-level revisions such as grammar, syntax, and line-by-line/sentence-by-sentence mechanics, as well as macro-level assessments like characters, plot, big-picture themes, ordering and organization, cohesiveness, etc. For poetry and short fiction collections, I also look at ordering and connecting themes. I am particularly drawn to writing that embraces risk-taking, hybridity, and speaks to the human spirit. I also consult on the publication process, such as query letters, synopsis, pitches, and publication guidance to literary magazines and agents.
Copyediting and proofreading of dissertations, speeches, and academic papers, as well as assistance in research development and research writing are also under my umbrella of specialties.
