So I mentioned some time ago that I started interning at an e-zine as an article-writer/editor. I’m working with these amazing people with remarkably talented writing, and sometimes it makes me feel a little under-qualified. The thing is, I don’t have 100% faith in the grammar and content of my own articles!
This is a bit of a wild idea, but would anyone be willing to be the reader of something that I write? In exchange, I’ll edit stuff that you write for you too. Article-writing is quite new to me. It’s arguably similar to writing blog posts, but I know for a fact that my posts are far from impeccable in terms of grammar and formatting. The best pieces I’ve seen these days have been on WordPress – on you people’s wonderful blogs.
The stuff I write for my internship is mostly based on interviews I conduct with local artists or people with interesting opinions on art/poetry. Pretty accessible stuff, and never longer than my typical blog post.
You might wonder if my editing skills are trustworthy after all I’ve said. I do have a lot of experience editing academic papers for people though, and consider myself to be pretty good at offering qualitative feedback. Even if my grammar isn’t flawless, it’s good enough for me to catch most mistakes out there, and good enough for me to turn in some consistently decent lit. papers too.
If you’re interested in this idea at all, feel free to comment below! The more people interested the better it is for me – I’m happy to read lots of stuff. It matters not what your experience is. Please don’t think of it as any sort of commitment – I just think it’s nice for writers to learn from one another, and would truly love to read anyone else’s work of any sort. I’ll add you on Twitter if you have that, or we’ll figure something else out.
