I provide manuscript critiques and content editing for short stories, novels, and plays. With a background in both Theatre and Creative Writing, I know a good story when I read one, and enjoy helping authors craft their stories for publication. In addition to my experience as a freelance writer and editor of fiction, I also spent several years as a publishing professional in the theatre industry, where I copy edited and formatted scripts for both traditional and digital publication. MFA: Ohio State University (2011)
