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, PROOFREAD, AND PROVIDE DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING for manuscripts about equality, social justice, and global respect. I strive, as the writers that I work with strive, to see and respond without bias.
IN SPRING 2019 I edited books on: the Muslim-Jewish exchange of ideas in al-Andalus (medieval Muslim Spain); community healing after mass shootings, which pulled heavily from the Navajo Nation’s peacemaking program; and the lost soul of the American presidency.
OTHER TOPICS I’VE EDITED include an anthology on activism driven by people with marginalized identities, such as undocuqueer immigrants and Black women; civil rights and nonviolent activism; revival of a Chilean Indigenous language; taboos in higher education in Japan; and early American explorers in Australia. I was also 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.
