Welcome

Welcome

I know that there are many manuscript editors, writing workshop leaders, and writing coaches for you to choose from; I appreciate your stopping by my website to see what I have to offer.

In your search for an editor, you are looking for someone to help you make your writing strong, clear, and memorable. You don’t want your editor to take over your project; you want your editor to help you strengthen and enhance it.

Here is my formal mini-bio:

Pam Sourelis (BA Journalism, MA English, MFA fiction writing) is a published writer (both fiction and non-fiction), and an experienced editor, writing instructor, workshop leader, and writing coach. A college writing instructor for over 25 years, she has taught for Depaul and Loyola universities in Chicago, the Illinois Writing Project, the University of Phoenix, and most recently for the Masters in Writing program of Southern New Hampshire University. She has been a writing consultant and coach for over 25 years and has taught journal, fiction writing, and memoir writing workshops for adults for 18 years.

But just as important as my credentials is the fact that I work well with writers at all levels—

  • Beginners in my introductory writing workshops (offered both in-person and in an interactive online format)
  • Writers at all levels who need assistance with beginning and sustaining work on a writing project
  • Writers who have completed a draft of a novel or short story or memoir or how-to and need assistance shaping (developmental editing) and polishing it (substantive editing and copyediting)
  • Entrepreneurs and not-for-profits who want to make sure their website copy, newsletters, and other communications are polished and professional.

I invite you to read the TESTIMONIALS from some of my former students and clients, and see if their words resonate with you. And I invite you to CONTACT ME so that we can introduce ourselves to each other and discuss your needs.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Pam
