Angela Wade - Editor

Chattanooga, TN, United States

I have one goal: to create and shape cohesive, fluid, and accessible copy that shifts perspective and makes a connection.

Overview

With more than twelve years of experience in the writing and editing industry, I bring a passion for brainstorming, researching, planning, writing, and editing everything from manuscripts (both fiction and nonfiction) to grants, marketing materials, and websites.

I’m a conscientious, detail-oriented editor with a strong work ethic and a serious amount of dedication. A natural problem solver, I’m at my best analyzing issues and creating bold yet sensible solutions.

As a writer, my articles, interviews, poems, essays, and reviews have appeared in various print and online publications, including Calyx Journal, Inkwell Magazine, Mindful Homeschooler, and Home Education Magazine.

Because vision is related to learning, all children should have a yearly eye exam. Eyeglasses are ... read more
