Ben Long – Editor

Reader, writer, teacher, lover. Book reviewer for SCREAM Magazine . Actively seeking new writing and editing projects in multiple areas!


I am a reader, writer, and ELA teacher looking to expand my editing portfolio. I have experience in content writing and editing, but I'm always open to exploring new opportunities in the world of writing/editing! Various types of editing, proofreading, ghostwriting - you name it! As a reader/reviewer I'm carving out a place for myself in the bookstagram community (primarily in the horror/thriller market, but not bound by it), and so I'm always happy to help promote work on various social media platforms as well!
