HI, I’M JILL.
THANKS for taking the time to visit my site.
I AM A WRITER, EDITOR AND ARTIST. I grew up in Buffalo, New York and now live on an island in Washington State.
I COPYEDIT and provide DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING for manuscripts on equality, social justice, and global respect. I strive, as the writers that I work with strive, to see and respond without bias.
IN 2018 I finished editing a book on the culture of secrecy and role of propaganda in the CIA. In the recent past I have edited writing on civil rights and non-violent activism, revival of a Chilean Indigenous language, English language learning in South Korea, taboos in higher education in Japan, and early American explorers in Australia. I also was a speaker coach for a microbiologist at TEDx San Juan Island in 2016.
I WRITE FICTION AND POETRY. In 2006, I was awarded the Scribbler’s Prize for the best piece of creative writing by an undergraduate woman for a collection of my poetry. The prize was awarded by the State University of New York at Buffalo.
