Through the Your Name in Ink publishing program, I give editorial feedback to young writers, copyedit novel manuscripts, design the interior layout, and work with an illustrator to help transform a child's idea into a real, legit book. Proceeds from book sales go to the charity of the young writer's choice.

I love working for Society of Young Inklings, a nonprofit organization that pairs young writers with professional authors through mentorships, contests, and publishing programs. I wish it had been around when I was a kid!


Freelance Editor

 

I've copyedited, proofread, and provided editorial feedback and continuity checks for a variety of projects, including creative nonfiction anthologies through PushPen Press, humorous online arts and humanities courses, a Bhutanese radio drama, community recreation center course catalogs, a 250,000-word sci-fi novel, and the always-wonderful Many Moons workbook by Modern Women.


Fiction Editor, The Rumpus

For four years, I helped with Rumpus Original Fiction, from its initial phase on an app called The Weekly Rumpus to the wonderful on-site feature it is now! After working as an assistant under Andrew Foster Altschul and Jessy Goodman, I served as Fiction Editor from 2015 - 2017.

With a loyal band of readers and assistants, I selected short stories to run as Rumpus Original Fiction on The Rumpus website. I love stories featuring self-deprecating humor, heartbreak, and a touch of the bizarre. I published quite a few pieces by writers who've never published fiction before, including "State Facts for the New Age" by Amy Sauber, which won a PEN award for debut fiction. I'm particularly interested in writing by women, people of color, and other marginalized voices.
