Service Description

Do you wish you could walk into the office of a major magazine and hand your project to an editor? Now you can--virtually.

Currently executive editor of Indianapolis Monthly magazine, an award-winning lifestyle publication with a circulation of 37,000, I oversee a large section of each issue and write frequently. In an earlier role, I handled custom publishing projects for external clients, including an architecture book and membership directories.

For freelance clients, I write authoritative, irresistible blog posts, articles, e-books, and other publications. Or I will sparkle up your copy and make it clean, if that's all you need.

If you have a travel blog, website, or e-book, I have unique qualifications to assist you. For six years, I worked on staff at an inflight magazine, writing articles and itineraries for a tour company and covering destinations and hotels worldwide. This is my passion and my expertise, and I would love to collaborate with a travel author, a DMO, or a tour company.

Please see my portfolio for recently published clips.

I also handle Spanish translations.

Rate:
$12 per hour or 5-10 cents per word, depending on the size and scope of the project.
