Writing matters to me, and I’ll do everything I can to make yours stand out. As an editor, I can take care of sentence-level corrections, help you with the big picture, or both, so that your final piece of writing is polished and ready for reading. As a writer, I have experience across a wide range of disciplines, including news articles, feature stories, editorials, advertorials, academic papers, theses, short fiction, flash fiction, blogs, web content, marketing content, newsletters, and grant proposals. If you need it, I can write it.
I have solid design and layout experience. If you need a website, flier, brochure, or other marketing materials, please contact me to discuss your project.
My professional experience includes over four years as an English composition instructor; multiple freelance assignments for authors, businesses, non-profits, literary magazines, and journals; and several years as a copy editor and managing editor of a newspaper.
That’s it on paper. But what really matters is that I feel that all is right with the world when I’m writing or editing and putting my skills to use for others is what I love to do.

Recommendations for Janel States James
Professor at Northern Arizona University
Janel has had great success as grant-writer and PR person for a non-profit organization with which I am affiliated (presently as President of the Board of Directors). She is creative, clearly well-educated and articulate in writing and speaking, attentive to differing details for every new set of proposal requirements, tireless in her search for new funding opportunities, careful to understand the needs and desires of the organization, and a joy to work with due to her invariably warm, optimistic and extroverted personality. I can also attest that she would receive a similarly glowing recommendation from any member of the Board and executive leadership of the organization.
