I have experience editing nonfiction, fiction, and poetry for self-published authors, publishers, and literary magazines. Here are some of the projects I’ve worked on recently.

I proofread Shirley Baker’s memoir, I Always Knew What I Didn’t Want: Adventures of an Unlikely Librarian.
I copyedited, designed, and proofread Amanda Baker’s poetry collection, ASK: A Collection of Poetry, Lyrics, and Words.
Brother Cobweb by Alfred Eaker
I provided a developmental edit and line edit of Brother Cobweb: A Novel by Alfred Eaker, forthcoming in spring 2020.
I copyedited and proofread How to Raise a Founder With Heart and designed the interior layout.
I copyedited The Indispensable Brand.
I proofread this science fiction novel.

I have read submissions, edited stories and poems, proofread, and designed the layout for all seven editions of Capsule Stories, a literary magazine.

Potpourri 2017, Potpourri 2016, and Potpourri 2015

I edited our campus creative writing journal, Potpourri, which is published by Concordia’s chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, for three years. I read, evaluated, and copy edited submissions. I proofread the final PDF before printing. In 2017, I served as a managing editor and trained another editor in the editorial process. In 2016, I handled all communications remotely through email as I was studying abroad in Europe during the semester. In 2015, I designed the layout of the journal by myself on InDesign.

I edited pieces for publication, completed layout and design, and proofread the creative writing journal The Sigma Tau Delta Rectangle and the critical essays journal The Sigma Tau Delta Review.
