Pro Bono Editing Services for Marginalized Writers
Everyone—especially everyone writing for publication—needs an editor. Unfortunately, not all publications employ copyeditors, and not everyone can afford to hire an editor to polish their work before it goes live. As an editor with 20+ years experience, this is a need I can help fill.
I am offering one short-form editing slot per month to Social Justice writers from marginalized groups, privileging the most marginalized voices: Women of Color, trans women, disabled women of color—you get the picture. This does not mean that if you are not described above I won’t edit your piece—it simply means that these slots will likely fill up fast and I will provide these free services to the most marginalized among us first.
If you are writing for publication and think your piece might benefit from an editing pass before you submit it, feel free to contact me via my Facebook page.
PS: Edited to add that if you don’t do FB, you can DM me via Twitter at @MMASammich.
