Trevor Courneen – Editor

Writer/editor with past clients including Newsweek, WWE, Disney. Left-handed, right-brained, down to do any non-fiction, up for a challenge!

Overview

Hello! I'm a versatile writer/editor looking to find exciting new projects. I have several years of experience in the publishing industry, having worked with others both remotely and in an office setting.

My true start in publishing came when I joined Paste Magazine as Assistant Food Editor shortly after completing an editorial internship. This role allowed me to help contributors craft compelling content while keeping with the magazine's voice. Soon after, I moved to New York City and began working as an Associate Editor with Topix Media Lab, a small publishing company specializing in special edition magazines and books. During my time there, I created projects for major clients including Newsweek, Disney, WWE, Discovery Channel, and Nickelodeon.

Now, on Reedsy, I'm eager to use my skills and experience to form a winning collaboration. Looking forward to working together!

Trevor did a great job editing my children's poetry book. He had some good suggestions and actually completed the job ahead of schedule and at a reasonable price. I would use him in the future.
