Alexandra is an editor with 31 years of experience and her guiding principle is “encouragement through editing.” In 2012 she started her own company, Loomis & Lyman, to help authors navigate the daunting world of self publishing. After seeing how hungry her friends in the coaching world were for knowledge about publishing, Alex started Writer’s Ed to provide nonfiction writers guidance, community, and support. Her greatest joy is helping them become authors and authorities.
According to Alex, editing makes a powerful contribution to shaping our culture. She says:
“I look at it as a partnership with the author, and the more an author knows and understands about the publishing process in general and the editing process in particular, the more equal the partnership will be. Words matter — words have created and brought down governments, after all — and I believe everyone deserves to have a chance to make their words heard.”
