Genres/Work Experience:

  • I’ve had years of experience editing for a NYC literary agency and for Outpost19, an independent publisher. I’ve edited fiction of just about any genre (literary, horror, science fiction, thrillers, you name it) as well as nonfiction and screenplays. My experience working as fiction editor of Sonora Review, a national literary journal, and as a member of the review panel for the Playa Residency Artist Program has given me unique insight into what editors and judging panels look for in a manuscript.
