Hire a Writer with the Writers Marketplace


Lisa L. Owens, Editor

Accepting new clients

Following a 10-year in-house editorial career in the children's industry, I made the switch to full-time freelancing in 2002 and never looked back. Over the years I've had editorial input on thousands of published products. My services include developmental editing, editorial project management, manuscript evaluation, copyediting, leveling, and writing.

These days I specialize in the children's trade, S&L, and K–12 educational markets, typically writing or editing for ages PreK–YA. I also edit adult-market books in such genres as contemporary fiction, historical fiction, psychological thriller, mystery, romance, business, how-to, and cookbook.

Select publishers and other clients: Starry Forest Books, National Geographic Kids, EPIC Press, Stone Arch/Capstone, Rosen Publishing, PowerKids Press, American Media Incorporated, Advanced Practical Thinking Training, Better Homes & Gardens Books, Better Homes & Gardens magazine, Family Money magazine, Meredith Books, Martingale & Co., Red Line Editorial, Girl Friday Productions, Skyscape, Montlake Romance, Amazon Crossing, Inkshares, Perfection Learning, Committee for Children, The Iowa Review, Rainbow Cleaners, and Bruegger's Bagels.
