Service Description

The secret to memorable writing is a 50/50 mix of creativity and control. I have experience in the publishing world, guiding a trade magazine with 19,000+ national/international readers from inception to publication. I also have a Masters of Fine Arts (MFA) from Vermont College of Fine arts in creative writing and have completed half of my coursework toward a PhD in philosophy/religion.

I succeed at having projects come together on time, on budget, and on point. I like helping others make connections through writing and effective and clear communication.

I value creativity, but also have an obsession with organization, planning, and structure. I can see the big picture and end product as well as the micro, line-by-line nuances of any project I'm working on.

Fluent in Chicago/AP styles. Writing/editing freelance articles, web copy, textbooks, academic essays/manuscripts, copy-editing, magazine publishing, art direction, academic research, fiction/non-fiction/poetry, ghost writing, poetry.
