I'm new to the professional writing world but have been writing poems, essays and papers since high school. I have been proofreading since high school, as well. In my 44th year of life, I am working on the final draft of my book and hope to publish within the next year. My goal is to become more involved with writing, now that my children are older, and hope to transition to full time writing over the next decade, as I complete my Masters and move on to a writing/speaking career. I have been an assistant editor for a weekly publication in the past, as well as for a monthly newsletter. I also created a quarterly e-zine during my employment for a university. Please contact me for proofreading, writing small articles and poetry.
