I’m Derek, a freelance writer, editor, and poet. With over a decade of professional writing experience, I’ve been successful in technical writing, grant writing, creative writing, freelance writing, ghost writing, copy writing, resume critiquing, book editing, and many other professional projects. My style is concise and informative with a personal voice. I'm very passionate about helping others discover the art of writing through unique and meaningful experiences.
I earned a Master of Arts in English and have served as Assistant Editor for LAMP Magazine. I've also worked as Senior Advisor for The Poetry Group.
I've been lucky enough to publish poetry in The Shangri-La Shack, 491 Magazine, Riverviews Artspace, 1 over the 8, Off the Coast International Poetry Journal, and Badlands Literary Journal.
