I help writers improve their craft, find community, and connect to experts. I help writers self-publish manuscripts, find literary agents, develop early drafts into marketable books, and perfect their prose.
I offer a variety of services from coaching, project management, developmental editing, copy editing, and proof reading. I also offer ghost writing services for the right projects.
A large part of my expertise in editing and publishing comes from my work interning with literary agent Carrie Pestritto. As Carrie's intern, I read her queries and provided feedback on current and prospective client manuscripts. I also helped her authors with marketing plans, contest entry, and brainstorming and outlining new projects.
As the Membership and Social Media Coordinator for my SCBWI region, I welcome new members to the region, stay abreast of regional news and publishing trends, and help organize regional events where I work with agents and editors.
At the University of Baltimore, I taught my students how to embrace the process of drafting and revision to improve their writing and thinking skills. I worked with my students to analyze purpose, audience, and genre so they would have the tools to approach any writing situation in their academic and professional careers. I worked with many multi-language learners at the University of Baltimore and enjoy working one-on-one with writers whose first language was not English.
I strategically planned and executed marketing programs for clients at a marketing agency and as an independent consultant. I worked on a mix of content strategy, social media strategy, social media management, project management, account management, content creation, and content editing. I wrote, edited, and published many white-labeled non-fiction articles, white papers, and ebooks in this role.
