Editing

In 2005 I founded an anuual fiction contest promoting excellence in short fiction and awarding cash prizes to four winners.  Under my leadership, two anthologies were published: The Coffee House Fiction 2009 Anthology and The Fifteenth Dame Lisbet Throckmorton Anthology, 2010.  Both are available for sale at Amazon.  I learned a lot — sometimes the hard way — but especially that I enjoy helping other fiction writers make their stories and novels better.  It was a way for me to draw on both my Master’s degree in English and my background in teaching at the high school and university level.

I still do freelance editing for projects that grab my interest.  E-mail me at sherri (at) verizon (dot) net to discuss.
