It's often said that editors secretly want to write. This was definitely the case for me when I came to graduate school: Having flirted with the idea of pursuing writing as a career at different times, I knew that it was a risky choice, that most writers can't actually support themselves through the craft alone. I knew I wanted to be involved with writing in some way, though, so I decided to seek out a more practical—but still enjoyable—course: editing.
Through my work as an editor, helping writers refine and publish their work, I've seen my own approach to writing evolve. I've found opportunities for writing in places I wouldn't have considered before—in marketing and promotion, in journalism, in research. I would love the chance to continue to develop my skills in any of these fields.
