Refine. Hone. Distill. The self is a text, too.
How Weather Affects Us, Manuscript Excerpt: Most of my freelance gigs are simply an MSWord .doc emailed back and forth, or uploaded to a site. Track Changes and Comment functions offer the same versatility as hand-editing and margins do. This is a portion of a manuscript written by a non-native English speaker.
Sojourner House Manuscript Excerpt: Sometimes clients want hard-copy drafts edited by hand, but aren’t familiar with proofreader’s marks, so I have to be flexible with how I communicate the necessary edits.
Two-week Editorial Calendar: Ten story pitches with relevant research and photo links for a client who promotes eco- and globally-conscious products, companies, trends, and people.
Short Writing Excerpts: In general, my writing falls into a more academic arena; these are two snippets from articles written about the veracity of the TV show L.A. Ink, and my favorite poet, Mina Loy.
