I’ve worked in editing and publishing for four years. My experience at 826CHI, the Academy of American Poets, Poets & Writers Magazine, and for myself via Raptor Press has given me a deep, multifaceted education in contemporary publishing. By working closely with people from every side of the publishing process, I’ve learned how necessary it is to find the right fit at every stage for an author’s work from start to finish.
It’s absolutely electric to see the joy in people when they hold something they’ve created in their hands, whether they’re a school kid, an editorial assistant, or a seasoned poet. I’ve been a writer and a part of writing communities for long enough to know that the excitement never leaves you.
Because my only insight into your life will be through your words, my opinions and edits will be unbiased and purely in the interest of your story. Whether you’re looking for a basic copy edit or a more developmental look at your work, I would be honored to help ready your manuscript for publication. In the past few years working in publishing, I’ve become very adept at working with writers of all ages to help draw their voice and ideas out and translate them on the page.
Through Raptor, I’ve edited manuscripts for Dear English Major and the YA series The Paper Hearts Club (unpublished).
