Remember the line about the mother writing a letter to her son at camp?
“I’m sorry for such a long letter,” she wrote, “but I didn’t have time to write a short one.”
As a staff writer and editor on magazines I was responsible for generating and assigning story ideas, copy-editing, display copy, and overseeing production for consumer publications.
Currently, I’m editing for websites, government newsletters and manuals, press releases, and awards nominations. I have edited journals and PhD theses, and business books for designers and photographers.
