Editing Philosophy

First and foremost, I am a writer. I’ve wanted to be a teller of stories for as long as I can remember, and creative writing is my biggest creative outlet. I think in stories, I construct rhetoric in stories, and I create visual stories.

As an editor, keeping true to the author’s vision is vital for me. Although I am trained in multiple editing styles, I believe the author’s story should take center stage. Because of my strong background in writing, I understand how important a story is for its creator. So, I put the story first and edit collaboratively, not antagonistically. When I work as an editor, I don’t want to just correct grammar, I want to hone the author’s meaning to the sharpest edge. Stories first. Always.
