Jeff Sjerven


I am a journalist with 37 years of newspaper editing experience at metropolitan dailies and professional niche publications. I also have helped authors prepare scholarly books for publication, and I have edited papers and articles for academics and policy experts. I have worked with award-winning correspondents as well as cub reporters, and I have respect, appreciation and patience for writers at all experience levels.
