I've been an editor since high school, when I worked on the staff of my school's annual literary magazine.
I'm the past editor of the monthly newsletter published by the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals - San Francisco Bay Area Chapter.
From 2008-2013 I was the editor of CoastViews Magazine, a monthly publication distributed on the San Mateo coast and in San Francisco.
I've also done editing projects for individuals: a family cookbook, some website text, etc.
I won my first award for writing back in grade school — the prize was a dictionary — and I've been writing every since. Besides the writing I did for CoastViews Magazine, I've written about organizing topics for Unclutterer and Core77.
I had the pleasure of working with Jeri first as a co-writer and then as an editor. The quality of her writing is exemplary. Jeri has excellent time management and organizational skills. She never a missed a deadline. Always ready to lend a hand with idea generation and editing, her suggestions were always presented with the utmost professionalism. If given the opportunity, I would work with her again in a heartbeat.

Editorial work requires a keen eye for detail and an excellent ear for how the text will "sound" to the reader. As a superb writer herself, Jeri Dansky is a gifted and delightful wordsmith. As an editor, she is a superlative interpreter of AP style: exacting, sensitive and devoted. Jeri is also a sheer pleasure to work with, full of wisdom and good humor.
