In 2019-2020, I served as Fiction Editor for the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s nationally distributed literary magazine, Cream City Review.  I have ten years of experience serving as a reader, assistant editor, and editorial committee leader for popular anthologies, textbooks, and literary magazines. Publications I’ve edited or served on the editorial board for include The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2010 (edited by Dave Eggers with an introduction by David Sedaris), the eighth edition of the textbook Critical Encounters With Texts, and the literary journals Salt Hill and Cream City Review.

I also offer my editorial services on a freelance basis, working directly with writers to provide developmental editing to their prose manuscripts (fiction, creative nonfiction, and academic writing in the humanities). I provide deep, thoughtful analysis of your work and experienced revision suggestions, guiding you toward the most ambitious possible version of your manuscript. For estimates, inquiries, and questions, please email me at jessie.c.roy@gmail.com.
