Erin cannot accept editing requests at this time.
I have a degree in English and a long history as a grammar nerd. I started my first journal when I was 5 years old and never stopped writing -- or rewriting. Before I started writing and editing professionally, I tutored writers of all ages and English abilities for 3.5 years. For me, there are few things more satisfying than guiding a writer to an "Aha!" moment with constructive feedback.
I love to edit almost anything -- long or short, silly or serious. I especially like to edit creative fiction, podcast transcripts, resumes and cover letters, personal essays, blog posts, business writing, and academic writing, including dissertations and theses.
I'm a Jane-of-all-trades who knows a little bit about a lot of things, and I'm eager to learn what I don't already know. My academic interests include contemporary and classic literature, rhetoric, political science, gender studies, social sciences and history. My love for the humanities doesn't mean that I shy away from the hard sciences, though; I enjoy editing papers related to technology, medicine, geology, astronomy and more.
I also have several years of experience writing and editing content for the web, including marketing copy, blog posts, transcripts, and resource articles, so I understand the unique challenges of crafting content that stands out and actually gets read!
When I'm not interacting with our awesome customers or editing team, I can usually be found knitting, reading, writing, hanging out with my daughter, rehabbing furniture, cooking, baking, binging on Netflix or podcasts, or -- as a true DIY junkie -- teaching myself something new.
