About Alison Weaverdyk
After three years of being a writing tutor during her college days at Macalester College, she went on to do another year of writing support at San Francisco State University during her Masters in Museum Studies program. During the school year, she is the Creative Director at a creativity competition for kids in grades 5-8 in Minnesota, and writes all of the curriculum and blog posts for the organization. In anticipation of moving to Bulgaria in 2016, she became certified in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). She spent a short time as a marketing associate and editor at a now-defunct small press, and has continued to offer her services as a developmental and copy editor since. Alison most enjoys reading fantasy and science fiction in all shapes and sizes, and has a deep knowledge of the history and culture of the 19th century from her time as an editor at SteampunkJournal.org, but is open to a variety of genres as an editor.
Alison’s full range of editing services and invaluable support assures your manuscript to reach its greatest potential. Her focus and clever suggestions helped improve my writing and extended my creativity to a broader spectrum. The dedication she poured into my book made me feel valued. I would highly recommend Alison to anyone desiring to succeed in reaching their goals!

Writing can be an arduous affair without a solid partnership with a competent and patient editor. Thanks to Alison, I was able to polish my drafts and sharpen my narratives.

Alison is awesome to work with. I am not a very organized person, so she organized things for the both of us. She made every effort to work with my schedule, and looked at the bigger picture of my manuscript as she suggested edits.

Alison did a phenomenal job on my developmental read. Her comments were insightful, thorough, and constructive. She has been available whenever I had questions or needed assistance. She is my go-to for further editing services.
