Me—A writer and editor fueled by the fierce joy of finding the perfect word, turning a delicious phrase. I have a knack for divining what was meant and what's missing, for energizing writers, and generally living up to my karaoke diva (it's a thing) nickname: The Jenerator.
You—An author, aspiring to develop and place a manuscript for publication? Or perhaps a thought leader, ready to self-publish a book to sell at speaking engagements? A business owner seeking crisp messaging and marketing materials? An academic? Whatever. I've got you.
JENEFER ANGELL, MA
NOW BOOKING PROJECTS FOR FALL 2022.
"I believe in hiring the best and smartest people so my team mentors me every day. They are each brilliant in their area of expertise so I am constantly learning.... My deep gratitude goes to Jenefer Angell, my editor and friend, who consistently uplevels my ideas while keeping my voice intact (me, but better!)."
—Dr. Britt Andreatta, leadership and learning thought leader, author of Wired to Grow, Wired to Resist, Wired to Connect, and more
Fruitful editorial process requires alchemy and intuition. I see what you want to do and help you do it.
Writers—Experts. Novices. Everyone produces better work with informed editorial feedback. Get your ideas down. Figure out where they belong. Troubleshoot pesky manuscripts. Discern whether your book belongs on the self-publishing or traditional track.
Businesses—Get experienced on-call editorial support to sharpen messaging and marketing communications. I also develop production schedules and strategies, and establish in-house style guidelines, and other infrastructure pieces as needed.
Passionfruit Projects—I specialize in material intended to make the world
better, supporting content creators with my approach and skill set:
Bottomless enthusiasm for creating effective writing and great product
Current print and digital publishing practices and economies
Broad, deep knowledge of editorial conventions
Drop me a line. I'd love to help.
"A friend of a friend recommended Jenefer as an editor for my mother's memoirs. She did an amazing job of helping us get the manuscript in shape to publish. Her insights and depth of understanding have been so valuable that we have decided to continue working with her on a couple of other projects we have in the works. Her commentary is on point and honest but she is flexible too. She also has given us very solid advice regarding publishing. I highly recommend her to any serious writer of fiction or nonfiction."
—Anne McClard, Aristata Press
"Jen is a fantastic editor with a keen eye and talent for developing an author, and she's such a pleasure to work with on any project."
—Emily Han, (Former) Acquisitions Editor, Beyond Words Publishing (Simon & Schuster partner company)
Pleased to meet you. And eager to hear about your project!
To get the ball rolling, send a short project description with desired turnaround. For book editing, I need to see a copy of the manuscript to complete a work estimate.
"You think your book or manuscript is complete and then you send it to Jenefer and you discover Jenefer has an incredible eye for consistency and cohesiveness. And, your project is good, but these changes will make it sell, ensure it is accessible, and you will love your work even more. She provides suggestions for improvement in a way that feels absolutely achievable, and then you are so thankful you worked with her. Her recommendations are thorough and your book is a thousand times better because of her attention. Thank you, Jenefer—I will be back. :)"
