WHAT MEGAN SAYS ABOUT EDITING

As a former creative writing teacher, I know there is nothing more rewarding than helping someone find their voice, shape it, and then use it to say something deeply resonant in a way that’s completely unique. Working with aspiring writers is, for me, a magical and inspiring experience; as a witness to their struggles, their bravery, and ultimately their successes, I find I often get as much as I give. I strive to guide each writer I work with toward artistic growth and creative breakthroughs.

Among the creative writing students and faculty at the school where I taught, I had the reputation of being “the editor,” which meant that I had the immense privilege of working with students as they prepared to submit their writing to competitions or journals. I always offered thorough, meticulous feedback that addressed both the big picture (character development, story arc, etc.) and the small (diction, cadence, etc.). As such, in addition to manuscript assessments, I’d be happy to do line editing for authors.
