I am a professionally trained editor with two decades of experience in literary editing, magazine publishing, digital content creation, and marketing. I specialize in developmental and line editing of fiction and creative nonfiction manuscripts.

An avid reader of memoir, mystery/thriller, and literary fiction, I tend to favor these genres in editing, but I’ve edited a wide range of projects and would be happy to discuss yours. The best part of my work is the variety of stories I help bring to life!

Along with editing manuscripts, I’m managing editor for Literary Mama magazine, teach writing workshops, and serve on the editorial committee for the local literary nonprofit Creative Colloquy. My writing has been published in literary publications as well as in sewing anthologies.

I’m a graduate of the rigorous editing program at the University of Washington and hold a master’s degree in sociocultural anthropology from Columbia University. I grew up in the north of France and now live with my husband, three kids, and one overwhelmed kitty in Tacoma, Washington. You can often find me gardening, stitching, or strolling rocky beaches with my family.

Most classes are offered at a general and member tuition rates based on instruction hours, with Hugo House members receiving a 10% discount on classes fewer than six sessions.

Early bird discounts are available during the first two weeks of registration and apply to both general and member tuition rates.

To help provide financial accessibility to our class offerings, some classes each quarter are offered with a sliding-scale tuition model, allowing students to pay what they can for the class. For these classes, tuition increments starting at $5 and going up to 125% of the standard pricing will be listed on the page.

Hugo House will only process refund requests that are submitted 5 business days or more before the class start date. To request a refund, log in to your account, go to “My Account,” select the “Orders” tab on the left-hand side, click the appropriate order, and request a refund for your specific class. Administrative fees apply. Please see our full refund policy here.

We do not record classes. However, an exception if a student has specific access needs.

We encourage students to only sign up for classes that fit with their schedule.   

We do not tolerate racist, sexist, homophobic, ableist, transphobic or any other oppressive behaviors, regardless of who commits them. Please check out our full community guidelines by clicking here.
