Editing and Writing Services
I have 14 years of experience as a writer, editor, and English teacher. I have worked as a freelance editor on memoirs, novels, and non-fiction books and articles at all stages, from developmental to copy editing. I have experience writing articles, interviews, blog posts and newsletters for businesses and non-profits.
My goal as a writer and editor is to take your ideas and content and bring them to life with clear, precise language. I love figuring out the best way to put information into words.
I serve as Fiction Editor at Rivet: the Journal of Writing that Risks, and I’m a founding editor at Red Bridge Press. From 2008-2013, I published monthly online newsletters for the non-profit WomenArts. My fiction and prose poetry have been published in print and online journals, and I received honors for both my undergraduate and graduate theses. I have worked with many writers for whom English is a second or third language.
“Deborah has an incredible skill. She can read a manuscript and come up with a pragmatic approach to move the process towards completion. After only a few months of working with her, I feel that I can finally finish my novel within the year. I am incredibly grateful to her for her invaluable contribution to this possibility, and look forward to sending her more material. I absolutely trust her work.” — Anne Kroeger
“I thought that was a fine job of editing. That’s really something I rarely say.” — Contributing author, Writing That Risks: New Work from Beyond the Mainstream, Red Bridge Press, July, 2013.
