I work with authors to develop and refine their manuscripts through editing, coaching, and publishing preparation. Over hundreds of manuscripts, I've worked with individual authors, publishing companies, and non-profit organizations to ensure their projects are crisp, engaging, and professional.
Created and managed an online news agency focused on innovative technologies, projects, and approaches in the humanitarian and international development sector.
Assisted up to fifty concurrent authors as they navigated the self-publishing process. This included preparing their manuscript, liaising with editors and designers, and pushing their book into the right distribution channels. Working closely with authors was a great way to learn about the unique hurdles each person faces as they complete the publication process and move into the marketing phase. I was grateful to experience such a wide range of approaches to writing and to see the amazing breadth of ideas that authors bring to their projects.
Taught and tutored for undergraduate courses in art history and film history.
