Susan Jones' Summary

⇨ Sue J is a Freelance Writer/Editor/Proofreader focused on writings that benefit from a creative edge. Her own writing is expertly crafted and does more than inform; it tells a story. She's a meticulous proofreader and a detail-driven, big-picture-minded editor. Her diversified work career includes 30+ years in administrative and technical positions where strong writing, editing, and proofreading skills were the keystone to her success.

⇨ In recent years, Sue has focused on deeper studies of the writing craft, the nuances of grammar and punctuation, and the art of storytelling (in both fiction and nonfiction). She co-wrote a published book on the effects of the World Trade Center disaster on first responders and their families, has been writing creative, personal essays for a blog about life transitions for several years, and also writes blog posts and articles for a nature and travel blog. She has used creative writing and storytelling techniques in both informal and formal writings, the latter including grant proposal writing where she successfully acquired critical funds for a domestic violence shelter.

Personally, Sue loves to write nonfiction essays, flash fiction, and short stories. She's currently writing a memoir and has developed outlines for several long-form fiction projects. Beyond writing, she has a deep appreciation for nature, visual art, and a wide variety of music. Within these interests, she sees common themes, including: the use of contrast to draw attention where needed; the importance of white space to allow a piece to breathe; the power of brevity; and the presence of a certain flow and rhythm in almost everything in art and in life.

This is HER story. Let her help you tell YOUR story.
