As a writer and an editor, my experience ranges from traditional to commercial to indie/self-publishing to small-press literary journals. I currently serve as the Managing Editor at Prairie Schooner, one of the oldest and most celebrated literary journals in the US. I am dedicated to supportive critique, to empathetic editing, and to the creative exchange of ideas.

I'm an enthusiastic and detail-oriented professional editor and writer with a MFA degree in creative writing and ten years of broad professional editorial experience. I bring to each project a unique range of experience, expertise in multiple editorial styles, creative problem-solving skills, clear communication, and an eye for clean, concise copy.

From substantive developmental editing to a nitty-gritty proofread, I’ve helped writers with a range of work across multiple genres. Whether you’re looking for a short story critique, feedback on query letters or other submission materials, or a full-on line edit of a manuscript draft, I’d love to take a look.

Ashley is a very knowledgeable and professional editor. And I would like to add that she is an incredibly hard worker.

Given that situation, I appreciated that Ashley deleted most of my novel's dashes and parentheses, as well as semicolon...
