I currently work as a content developer and editor, but have also worked as a marketing and sales writer in various industries for the last 7 years. I learned my master's degree in Writing and Publishing from a Chicago university while working for a large publisher in the Midwest. I have studied editing, stylistics, workshop writing, the publishing industry, and have experience working with editors and authors. I have been a contributor to several artist and university blogs, as well as had several essays published in literary journals.
By offering suggestions, criticism, and collaboration, I can help you find "what's missing" and expand the core of your idea.
Years of experience and training mean that I understand writing and publishing. I can help you communicate more effectively, grow creatively, stay organized, and consistently present well-crafted content to your clients, agents, and readers.
