Hello there! Thanks for visiting. I’m Kimberly Turner, an Atlanta-based freelance editor and writer with more than 15 years of international experience in the publishing industry — both print and digital. I hold a B.A. in Creative Writing and an M.A. in Applied Linguistics and have won awards for my service journalism work.
I am available for copy editing, developmental editing, reporting, and writing projects. I also specialize in helping technology startups with messaging and documentation. My versatile approach allows me to easily switch from editing medical manuscripts for academic journals to writing snarky online humor pieces to reporting on science, technology, real estate, or business trends. Please scroll down to view a few clips.
Interested in working together? Wonderful. I’d love to hear more about your project.
Please email email@example.com for rates and availability.
