I'm a professional freelance editor with 2 years of experience. I have an emphasis in young adult, fantasy and poetry, but work with most all fiction genres. I prefer to not work with non-fiction, or Christian fiction. I currently edit and work for Patchwork Press, and have established a poetry magazine.
