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 read submissions, edited stories and poems, and proofread the first three editions of Capsule Stories, a literary magazine. I designed the layout for Capsule Stories Spring 2019 Edition, Summer 2019 Edition, and Autumn 2019 Edition.
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.
