I'm an editor and writer who wants to help you bring out your best work. With more than fifteen years of experience editing and writing for audiences large and small, I can confidently say that you've come to the right place if you're looking for professional editing services at affordable prices. I specialize in writing, developmental editing, line editing, copyediting, proofreading, sensitivity reading, and literary coaching.
I have a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing with a focus on poetry, creative nonfiction, and small press publishing. My clients range from individuals just starting their writing journeys to independent publishing houses to corporations and government entities. I believe in lifelong learning and am constantly striving to improve my skills. I am proficient in several style guides—including Chicago, APA, AP, and MLA—and can easily adjust for a writer's preferred style.
As a published author myself, I know what it's like to send a piece of writing out into the world. I want to help you find your story and give the best chance to be published as I can. That being said, my services are not a guarantee of publication.
Currently based just north of Washington, DC, I have also lived in New York City and Los Angeles. When I'm not editing or writing, I'm likely reading for pleasure. I enjoy good food and good conversation, etymology, Japanese culture and anime, dystopian fiction, narrative poetry, and American history, among other things.
Please contact me with information about your project and I will be happy to work with you!
