About me

I provide high quality, professional writing and editing services to a wide range of clients. After receiving my bachelor of arts from allegheny college, I began to work as a freelance writer for a number of in-print & online publications, alongside editing for everyone from high school students to seasoned authors. While i am trained as a poet, my writing experience is not limited to creative work. i have written grant proposals, science articles, political think pieces, etc. My editing services go beyond surface level error correction & get to the heart of your writing, making sure overall content is strong & coherent. In addition to writing & editing, I provide resume consultations for individuals looking to enter the workforce. 

Why lunar phase? the moon is the world’s greatest editor. She has the power to wax and wane, expand and contract when change suits her. editing is the process of knowing when to give and take away, and the hallmark of a good editor is the ability to do so seamlessly.
