After earning my Honors Bachelor of Arts in English, cum laude, I obtained a certificate from the Denver Publishing Institute and a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science. I've always been a careful tutor for my peers, and I spent my undergraduate career honing my editing skills as a newspaper copy editor (and a couple semesters in grad school working as a blog editor). Working for a periodical publication has meant that I've learned to be meticulous and professional in my editing and to get copy edited on a tight schedule. In addition to newspaper and blog work, I've also edited book manuscripts, including children's fiction, poetry, and narrative nonfiction--and my training at the publishing institute has served me well in these more literary pieces. I've worked with a wide range of types of writing, and the material I've worked with has been for a wide range of audiences. I've edited academic papers, short fiction and nonfiction, magazine and newspaper articles, and the occasional business correspondence. I've also had experience working with writers for whom English is not their primary language, and I understand Spanish sufficiently to translate. As a student of literature, I've studied poetry and prose in depth. I'm eager to apply my critical understanding of literature to new works and gain experience editing new genres and styles.
