Am I Right For You?
We all have ideas and imaginative worlds locked away in our heads. The problem is when we feel as if we don't have the tools to show just how extraordinary those stories are. I want to help those who have reached a point of stagnation or uncertainty to feel confident in their projects. And for the writer whose story is nearly complete, I am here to help tighten up your work to get it ready for publishing.
I graduated from the University of North Carolina (UNC) with a bachelor’s degree in English and received my ACES Certificate in Editing from Poynter’s News University. My experience with freelance editing has ranged from children’s books, environmental education grants, lifestyle magazines, short stories, and essays. I’m also an associate editor for a speculative fiction publication, Bewildering Stories. For more information on my professional background, check out my LinkedIn.

Developmental Editing- The “Big Picture” stage of editing, where feedback is given on the overall structure and content of the piece.
