After 11 years as a copy editor at Transport Topics, a weekly trade newspaper covering trucking and freight transportation published since 1936, I offer decades of experience in editing and writing full time on staff for print and online publication, with some commercial and noncommercial broadcast experience.
Transport Topics revamped its website, www.ttnews.com, changed the job descriptions of the four copy editors to content managers, trained us briefly to edit stories for the revamped website and separated two of us.
With a bachelor's degree in political science and a master's degree in public affairs, I have edited staff-written and wire stories for publication in print and online; edited a book manuscript for the World Bank and an author's published memoir; researched legislation and constituent inquiries and wrote press releases for a state legislator; researched legislation and edited the writings of the director of a university research center; and researched historical background for an author's novel
I set up this blog years ago as an experiment, and I've posted my writings and highlighted the writings of others. It's time for me to use this blog more effectively.
