EDITING

 

EDIT: To prepare material for publication or presentation; to modify or adapt so as to make suitable or acceptable.

 

EDITOR: One who edits, especially as an occupation.

 

ArkandTent.com - an online magazine that "brings people and animals together...through travel." The site features articles written by a variety of talented writers, and I act as the Managing Editor. As such, I not only edit the site but also solicit articles, and write some of them myself.

JoAnn.com (formerly IdeaForest.com) - an online ecommerce site that supports JoAnn Fabrics, a brick-and-mortar business. The company sells crafting supplies and fabrics to customers online, as well as in their stores. As the Editorial Projects Manager, I was tasked with overseeing the creation of copy for over 12,000 individual products, as well as contributing to and overseeing the production of articles relevant to various crafting lines (scrapbooking, textile arts, painting, etc.)

 

BellaOnline.com ("The Voice of Women") - I was the French Culture editor for a popular website that attracts over 20 million page views per month. I specialized in writing and editing articles about French culture: arts, food, travel, history, entertainment, music and more.
