Editing

LITERARY

I'm a big reader -- I've been along for the ride for awards such as Best of the Net and CLMP's Firecracker Award, as well as every open reading period, residency, and challenge for Sundress Publications since the start of 2021. I've had the honor of reading so much great work that I know what success looks like -- and how to get your work there. Whether you want a sharp eye to copyedit or a sounding board to talk through developmental edits, I'm here to help.

I 've helped authors get their footing, create marketing materials, collect blurbs, assist reviews, concoct cover art, get indie titles placed in brick-and-mortar bookstores, and more. I've also created websites, worked magazine brand redesigns, built promotional playlists, and formatted chapbooks. If you're looking for this sort of help, whether you're trying to develop a more diverse readership for your magazine or get your first book off the ground, let's talk!

Brush Strokes

COMMERCIAL

During the day, I write and edit for an online scientific company, using the most up-to-date research and strategies to get correct information into people's hands.  It's critical that articles are approachable, accurate, and easy to find. Using sharp SEO strategies, deep research, and crafty linkbuilding techniques, I've helped to get our already high-performing site into top shape. My articles have been linked on blogs, academic sites, and programs like the UAB Insitute for Human Rights.

 

Likewise, I manage and edit my own work, but line and copyedit a team of peers' work with speed and grace. My students and teams can verify -- I may leave a lot of feedback, but it's all in pursuit of the best possible writing.
