Adina Klein – Editor

I'm a former editor-in-chief specializing in Crafts, Health and Well Being. I love helping writers hone their voices to tell their stories.

Overview

I have been in the publishing business for almost 25 years. As Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Knitting Magazine, I’ve done extensive editing to all sorts of projects including the award winning knit.1 magazine. As a freelancer, I've worked with all kinds of writers, most notably Melanie Falick, on her best-selling Weekend Knits.


Though my background has been mostly in the DIY sector, most recently I have been working with non-fiction writers on essays and memoirs in the Health and Wellness Category. My authors have been published in The Cut, Insider and HuffPost.


Client Anna Sullivan says:


“Working with Adina has taken my writing to the next level. She always offers prompt and effective feedback regarding the structure and narrative arc of my work, before line editing with precision. She is a whiz at copy editing and sentence structure. Moreso, Adina understands what I am trying to say, and she has helped me develop my voice. She works tirelessly for her clients, to get them across the finish line.”


As a writer myself I know how frustrating (and rewarding!) the writing process can be. I will be your biggest cheerleader and will push you to develop your voice and streamline the structure of your work. If your project is in a field that is not in my direct area of expertise I will do whatever it takes to familiarize myself with the subject.


I like to meet writers on zoom to develop a working relationship as soon as possible. I try to make myself accessible to my clients all along the way.


I have a firm understanding on what it takes to get a first draft into a manuscript ready for market.
