Today I’m excited to share a project that I’ve been working on off and on since February and that was published earlier this week. It’s entitled Living in the True Spirit of Christmas: An Advent Devotional, and you can buy the book and the ebook on Amazon here and here, respectively.
I’m editor and project manager for this publication, which takes me beyond my typical proofreading niche: for this magazine, I also help with research, sourcing, copywriting, design, and typesetting.
Work has already begun on the fall issue, which will celebrate forty years of nursing at IWU. I’m excited to dive into that, as I love historical research and have had fun doing retrospective pieces for other clients. Meanwhile, check out the current issue, which has some great articles on the program’s overseas travels and the new sim lab, among other things.
Magazine work is something I really enjoy, so one of my freelancing goals for this year was to pick up additional magazine clients. I’ve shared some of my work on the Fort Wayne Vine and will pop in with updates on other projects throughout this year.
Earlier this week I received a batch of handmade South African ceramics from an editing client. I’m in love with these rainbow-bright bowls, and they’ve found homes all over my studio: nestled on bookshelves, on my desk corner… (I doubt there could be a cuter paperclip holder.) Thought I’d share these fun faces with you, in the hope that they make you smile, too.
P.S. You can sneak a peek at some of my favorite books. Any here that you also love?
I’m excited to now be able to share with you a project I wrapped up this past August: the fall 2014 issue of IWU Nursing.
Last year I began working with Indiana Wesleyan University’s School of Nursing to produce their biannual magazine; this is the second issue we’ve done together. IWU Nursing has a print circulation of 10,000, and in addition, the last issue had more than 22,000 online views. I serve as editor and project manager for this publication, which means I’m involved in research, sourcing, copywriting, design, typesetting, and of course, editing. It’s great to be able to be involved in so many stages of the publication process.
I’m so pleased with how this issue turned out. The School of Nursing is one of my favorite clients, and I’ve always enjoyed the magazine format. Click through above to read this issue—I’d love to hear what you think!
