Editing

20


20 per hour Virtual OK

I’m an avid editor.
I love to sniff and cut and re-order and re-organize. I’m not much of a teacher but I’ve been told I’m a very good writer. I edit a newspaper that includes mostly letters from prisoners and they almost always express appreciation in my editing. In other words I feel like I am able to pick up on the essence of what they are saying and make it more clear.

I have never edited professionally although I did help one friend edit his autobiography. So I’m a little new at this but I really enjoy editing and want to give it a shot.

Training & Qualifications


I grew up with my father editing everything I wrote with a red pen. I think him for my writing skills. Also my formal education. I have a masters in social work, which required a great deal of writing. Also I have been editing a newspaper for the last five years or so. And I have assisted with the editing of one book.

About Kimberly Pollak of CPF

I’m an outta the box thinker. Always open to creative solutions. I am the editor of the Prison Focus newspaper, elevating voices of people incarcerated in California, and that leaves me little time ...for anything else! Since we have no paid staff so we rely on the community to fulfill skilled tasks. Also, I personally am a bit of a jack of all trades master only of newspaper editing. Also being very ADD I have a hard time finishing many of the things I have started. So I’m often seeing the more detail oriented people help me finish projects or take on the task that I’m not good at. It’s hard to rely on volunteers so I’m going to try this out for a while and see how it goesshow more
