I started out as an editorial assistant, and have been providing support to the editorial and production teams ever since. I help review potential acquisitions (including the slush pile), edit custom book projects, copyedit and proofread. As one of the production editors, I work on a team that makes sure our 40+ titles get to the printer each year and in tip-top shape! I work on picture books, children's nonfiction, and the occasional YA novel.
Augur Magazine publishes speculative short stories, poetry, and graphic fiction two issues per year. I am part of the editorial team, which decides on the pieces we publish, and I help edit some of the short stories we publish. I complete substantive and stylistic edits, as well as proofread each issue from start to finish.
