What I do

Fiction and Creative Nonfiction

My writing has been twice listed in The Best American Essays and has been nominated for The Pushcart Prize by several publications, including Guernica. I am also the founding Sunday Editor at The Rumpus and am the current nonfiction editor at The Nervous Breakdown.

Developmental Editing

I edit for publishing houses and independent writers of fiction and creative nonfiction. I specialize in developmental and substantive editing, but I also do copy editing. 

Copywriting

I am a copywriter for a wide range of nonprofits and the occasional for-profit institution. I  write for the web, brochures, and more, and I have also done curriculum development. Clients include Stanford Children’s Health and Antioch University Los Angeles.

Teaching and Private Workshops

Though I’m on hiatus, I have taught creative writing workshops, and I also teach professional writing. I taught for the UCLA-Extension Writer’s Program, Antioch University Los Angeles, Writing Workshops Los Angeles, and more.
