Freelance Writer, She/Her

Marketing | UX | Editorial | Literary

I'm an exceptional problem-solver who squirts ink to survive, adapts quickly, and is able to squeeze quite a lot into a tiny space. I'm basically an octopus.

(And I can house a pile of shellfish like one.)


For 10+ years I've been helping brand, marketing, and UX teams at companies like Audible, Dell, and Facebook connect with people through language and voice. My expertise ranges from in-app microcopy and product descriptions to articles, newsletters, and interviews.

I'm also an essayist and short story author. My work has appeared in literary journals such as the New Letters, The Sun, Kenyon Review Online, and elsewhere, and has been included among the "notables" in the Best American Essays anthology. Since 2013, I've been an editor at American Short Fiction, proudly helping to publish some of the country's most exciting writers.

Writing Philosophy

Bill Bernbach

“The truth isn't the truth until people believe you, and they can't believe you if they don't know what you're saying, and they can't know what you're saying if they don't listen to you, and they won't listen to you if you're not interesting, and you won't be interesting unless you say things imaginatively, originally, freshly."
