Alisha Nygaard
ANN Editing Services

I am a freelance editor and writer who specializes in developmental/substantive editing. I gain most satisfaction in helping writers clear blocks and bring their characters and plots to life. With an educational background in literature, creative writing, and teaching, I find joy in helping my writers learn and grow in their writing style through editorial feedback and correspondence. While I most enjoy early-stage draft editing, I frequently see my clients through from first draft to final proofread. I am also available for line editing and proofreading, and work with some nonfiction. I have edited a literary magazine, novels, novellas, short stories, postgraduate theses, articles, blog posts, and mailing lists. Please ask me if you are wondering if I can help you with your project!
I have a BA in English and Creative Writing. While my career has focused on editing services and fiction writing, I am open to professional writing jobs. I have studied a few languages, but am most comfortable communicating through English or ASL.
