Elsa’s feedback brilliantly refines elements of plot and character. She is fast, thorough, and gives invaluable notes that range from small-detail to big-picture. Her approach is both incisive and encouraging, and guides stories toward becoming their best. I’m so grateful for her help on Blanca & Roja.
–Anna-Marie McLemore, author of When the Moon Was Ours and Wild Beauty
Managed behind the scenes editorial support and submissions for a quarterly print and digital magazine. Edited selected non-fiction, and wrote selected editorials as part of the duties behind the scenes. I worked closely with editor Julia Rios to develop tone and vision, as well.
I've worked for Uncanny Magazine in two separate ways over the last few years. First, I was the Guest Co-Editor in Chief of Disabled People Destroy Science fiction alongside Dominik Parisien (for which we won multiple awards).
And then I was hired starting in January of 2020 to edit the general non-fiction section of the magazine, where I curate, edit and produce content across a wide variety of subjects suited to the Uncanny readership.
I have done a range of editorial jobs as a freelancer in the last decade and change.
I have sensitivity edited content for both independent authors and major publishers (Charlie Jane Anders' "Rock Manning Goes for Broke" and Anna Marie McLemore's "Blanca & Roja" are examples) . I have edited pronunciation guides for narrators, copyedited textbooks for BWH Freeman, and proofread independent client essays and manuscripts.
I have worked as a dramaturge on new theatrical works, including "blahblahblahBANG" which was produced by the Washington Ensemble Theater in 2009.
I also provide developmental edits for non-fiction and fiction projects, as well as short fiction.
As a writer I am proficient in non-fiction essay work, and game design texts.
