Deborah Young

Deborah Young - Editor

Overland Park, KS, United States

Eclectic writer with 10+ years' writing experience as a journalistic freelancer, corporate contract writer, and trade writer/editor.


I've written consumer articles for weekly newspapers, which included interviewing authors, comedians, and activists. As a trade magazine writer/editor I created articles and columns for the meat industry and the wireless telephone industry. The most important thing I learned from these jobs is how to learn unfamiliar industries, how to conduct interviews, record my observations and check facts.
