An Editor on a Mission
Who Is Amanda Edens?
As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I couldn’t afford to visit campuses, so if you ask why I chose the creative writing program at Lycoming College in Pennsylvania, I wouldn’t be able to tell you.
When I Learned I Wasn’t a Writer…
I’ve worked with self-publishing individuals as well as publishing houses and on creative endeavors spanning from screenplays to novels, fantasy and horror to romance and literary fiction.
What I Believe
- They say music is the highest form of art, but I say writing is no less sacred: reading is the only way we can experience the mind of another (and continue to learn about the amazing world we live in).
- John Gardner says art is true, moral, and beautiful—in that order. I can help with #1 and #3.
- Collaboration between writer and editor can lead to pure magic.

More About Me
As a content marketer, I’m concerned with my clients’ ideal customer, communicating effectively, connecting ideas, and telling great stories. If you think about that target customer as “character,” this is exactly what I do for my editing clients too.
For as long as I’ve been writing, I’ve never considered using another editor. As a one-woman writing workshop who keeps fiction realistic, only Amanda has truly advanced my work. I count on her to help me guard against my own lazy habits.
We get compliments regularly from readers on how good our editor is to deliver such error-free manuscripts. We appreciate Amanda’s ability to turn around projects quickly and with an eagle eye for typos, misspellings, and punctuation errors.
