Looking for skilled editorial support?
I can help you deliver, whether you need assistance at the micro or macro level — from crafting narratives and adjusting word choice to developmental editing and organizing large quantities of information.
I’m Wendy Lyons Sunshine, an award-winning writer and best-selling author with an MA in technical communication, a BA in English, phi beta kappa, and years of reporting, editing, and publishing experience.
During my career, I’ve provided original articles, SEO web content, essays, and editing for clients ranging from The New York Times to PsychologyToday.com. I’ve been a staff editor for NYC-area publishers John Wiley & Sons and RR Bowker, and partnered on 5-star books for McGraw-Hill and Revell. Lately I’ve been working with Positively.com, the International Fund for Animal Welfare, and other organizations.
I’m comfortable using content management systems and other digital tools, and I keep an eye on publishing trends with help from a cross-section of professional organizations and other resources.
