*Professional editing to help you achieve a brighter future.* I’m a skilled editor for hire ready to perfect your writing so that you can reach your goals, whether they be educational, professional, or creative. I accept a wide variety of projects. My specialties are school papers, blog posts, and novels, especially YA literature, but I edit text of all kinds. Rates vary depending on what kind of editing you're looking for. I write creative pieces independently and read over 300 books a year, which gives me an excellent understanding of story structure.

Experience

Business Owner and Freelance Editor

Jan 2019

I run my own editing business online, where I offer three text editing services in the realms of copy, line, and developmental editing, along with live edits. My specialties are school papers, blog posts, and novels, especially YA literature, but I edit text of all kinds. I also bid on and accept projects through Guru and Freelancer.

Ward History Specialist

Apr 2017

I edit the quarterly newsletter for my local church.

Teaching Assistant

Sep 2015 - Dec 2015 (3 months)

I was the TA for Dr. Bird's ENG101 and ENG301 classes, where I graded papers and conferenced with students about their writing.

Freelance Writer and Editor

May 2013 - Nov 2013 (6 months)

I edited and wrote a wide variety of content for 10+ clients. My main body of work was in copywriting short, SEO-friendly articles about fashion, business skills, and new products. However, my work covered many different topics, and I also wrote website copy, e-books, and product descriptions. Additionally, I performed copy, line, and developmental editing on full-length novels, query letters, and articles.

Head Copy Editor

Jan 2013 - May 2013 (4 months)

I worked as the head copy editor for Adams State University's student paper, THE PAW PRINT. In this position, I copy edited all English-language articles and stories, reformatted the publication, wrote articles of my own, and helped decide what content ultimately went into the paper. I also worked alongside the editor-in-chief and secondary editor in regards to human resource issues.

Master of Marketing

Jan 2012 - Jan 2017 (5 years)

I was a founding member of this organization, which holds an annual conference (the Chapter One Young Writers Conference) for writers from middle school to undergraduate level, with 35-50 people at each event. I managed online marketing and assisted with social media, speaker selection, and more. I spoke twice at Ch1Con, in 2012 and 2014. As a part of Ch1Con's brief partnership with Teens Can Write, Too!, I also worked as a blog editor and writer.
