Service Description

I am an editor/writer with 35 years experience, for the past 6 years with Elance. Before that I was managing editor at daily newspaper. After 14 years in the daily newspaper industry, I have now moved to freelance editing/writing positions.
As editor, I was responsible for a staff of five reporters and our lifestyle writer, as well as all aspects of newspaper production. I am familiar with deadlines. I have used several style sheets, including AP, MLA, and APA.
I also have three books in print, one a fiction book for children, the second a collection of short stories and the third an elementary level textbook on the Native people of Vermont. In addition, I also have a background in teaching from middle school level to college.
