I am a freelance editor, creative writer, and workshop facilitator based in Portland, Oregon. In 2017, I earned my BA in English & Creative Writing from Portland State University with a focus in creative nonfiction. For five years, I was a Senior Prose Editor at Typehouse Magazine where I wrote developmental feedback to submitting writers on their short stories and personal essays.
Maybe you’ve written a personal essay or short story, but it’s seen a few lit-mag rejections and you want to know what’s making editors turn it down. Or perhaps you’re looking to take an early draft of your book-length project to the next level. I can help you tackle the big-picture issues keeping your draft from reaching its fullest potential.
As an experienced copy editor, I work word by word with a trained grammatical eye to help ensure your work is ready for submission to contests, magazines, or agents, or that your blog posts are easy to read and ready for publication.
