Writing & Editing
I've written deliverables that contain STEM- and humanities-related information. I've edited 800-word, keyword-targeted articles on bioplastics and 100,000-word novels about dragons.
I've conducted sensitivity reads on everything from TTRPG character profiles to full-length novels. I don't censor writers but rather partner with them to ensure accurate and sensitive representation.
I also offer beta reading.
