Jessie McCoy - Editor

Colorado

Editor. Reader. Writer. Blogger. Book Lover Extraordinaire.

Overview

I am an avid reader with experience editing and writing. I love all sorts of books, but am particular toward stories that make me feel something, great of otherwise.

I have worked freelance to edit stories, taken a few creative writing classes, hold a B.A. in English and M.S. in Publishing, and I wrote my master's thesis on the lack of diversity in YA.

You can see my work experience on LinkedIn.
