Hi, I'm Maggie

I've learned firsthand that writing and being a business owner is hard. That's why I created Magpie Editorial – to encourage and empower writers and business owners to tell their stories and tell them well.

I've learned firsthand that writing and being a business owner is hard. That's why I created Magpie Editorial – to encourage and empower writers and business owners to tell their stories and tell them well.

I've always been a reader, and I've been a writing for over a decade. I have professional experience in an array of writing and editing fields: I've written and copyedited for a newspaper, blogs, websites, and a literary magazine, and I've worked as a writing consultant since 2015. Through my undergraduate and graduate programs (in English and creative writing, respectively) I have developed an understanding of the craft of creative writing and have been able to help writers develop and fine-tune their manuscripts, as well as develop cohesive and engaging content for businesses.

I have a personal interest in literature, art, neurodivergent psychology, feminism, faith, and politics. I have a curious mind which allows me to delve into any work in any genre with passion and excitement. I have a particular love for literary fiction and memoirs, and I enjoy working closely with authors and business owners over the phone or via FaceTime even if it means getting up at the crack of dawn to make up for a time difference!

As a natural empath, I am able to be as enthusiastic about another's manuscript or project as if it were my own. I love developing a personal relationship with my clients. Editing can be an exhausting process, but it can also be fun, and it is always rewarding. 

About the Name

My father is an artist. He taught me what it means to be creative, how to brainstorm, and how to turn an idea into a work of art. Even after I began to focus less on art and more on writing, his lessons on art stuck with me.

My father has a nickname for me: Magpie. Because of his influence, I can't imagine using any other name.

I'd be happy to set up a free consultation call to discuss how we can work together!
