My name is Shareen Mann, and I have been writing and editing in a variety of fields for over 25 years. I specialize in ensuring consistency of content presentation, tailored for your target audience. I hold a bachelor of arts in journalism from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. I am an independent fiction writer, with multiple short story publications, two short story anthologies, and two novellas in print. My developmental editing has helped several writers sell their short stories and novels.
After 19 years in a graduate medical education facility, where technical writing was part of my routine duties, I moved to a freelance career in January 2017. My expertise includes very small tasks involving 250 words or less, large-scale procedural manuals covering over 100 topics and requiring multiple outputs (print, digital, and web based), and both fiction and non-fiction novels or anthologies.
Creative projects often move in unexpected ways, and I enjoy identifying and rectifying issues as they arise, ideally before they become problems. Trouble-shooting is a critical component during the creation or revision phases of documents, manuals, and training tools.
I have experience with poorly defined projects, giving me the skills to identify the scope of a project and parse it out into smaller tasks. This can make initially vague and overwhelming projects clear enough for me to meet even tight deadlines.
