Presented by:
Annika Hipple, Freelance writer, editor, travel photographer: “I am a freelance writer and editor with more than a decade of experience in editorial work. I have written for a wide range of newspapers, magazines, newsletters, and web sites, and also provide editorial services to businesses and nonprofit organizations. … As an editor and proofreader, I am an expert at fixing grammatical errors, catching typos, and smoothing out stylistic issues to create a quality editorial product. I can clean up a document without losing the individuality of the writer or streamline a product with multiple authors so that it speaks with a single voice.”
Jenny Lynn Zappala, Writer, journalist, content creator: “As an independent writer and journalist, I offer original writing, reporting, research and editing services as well as media expertise. My specialty is fact-driven storytelling that captures the personality and purpose of the subject, whether its people, places or events. Today, I primarily write for Web sites and magazines, including 425 Magazine and Seattle Business Monthly. Most recently, I worked as editor of the Lynnwood/Mountlake Terrace Enterprise.”
