Doreen Zeitvogel - Editor

Seattle, WA, United States

Thorough, Insightful Editing with Artistry, Intuition, and Heart

Overview

Welcome! As a translator, editor, and writer with a performing arts background and an ongoing interest in spirituality and breakthrough thinking, I've been developing a deeper and broader sense of language over the years, one that's rooted not only in the meaning of the words but also in their sound, their dramatic impact, their look and feel.

What does this mean for you as an author? I don't consider myself the best person for helping you to develop the basics of your plot, characters, and setting, but if you want to dig beneath the surface of your material, if you want to find your most honest voice, sharpen your dialogue, clarify your thinking, challenge your ideas, heighten your imagery, and discover the music and drama within the words, then I can help you on your journey.

And, of course, if you need something more basic, like streamlining, proofreading, or checking for transitional elements and gaps in your writing, that's also not a problem.

Interested in finding out more and discussing your project? Drop me line. I'd love to hear about it.
