A lifetime of experience editing - let's tally it up to 5 years' experience editing professionally.
I have been published in newspapers, fiction and poetry anthologies, critical journals and online encyclopedias.
I was editor-in-chief of a bi-weekly newspaper for a year (until I moved), a position which I worked my way up to through the rungs of volunteer contributor, paid contributor, and copy editor.
I currently work for a non-profit creating web content and press releases, while freelancing in the evenings. Most of the editing I am doing right now is academic, but I do have regular creative clients as well.
