As Writer

I’ve written everything from technical documentation, price proposals, and white papers to newsletter articles, devotionals, personal profiles, and essays for both regional and national publications. Here are a few of my favorite published pieces:

As Editor

As a member of Literary Mama ‘s senior editorial team, I participated in editorial discussions for more than 400 pieces of nonfiction, fiction, essay, interviews, and book reviews. I also performed the final copy edit/proofread of nearly 300 pieces. As managing editor, I expanded the organization’s Style Guide and department guidelines and established standards for tracking website and social media metrics; as editor-in-chief, I led the all-volunteer team of 25 editors ensuring that editorial standards and publishing schedules for 10 issues were met each year and that weekly marketing efforts were consistent. During this time, I also served as a field editor for Our Iowa magazine.
