Lisa Poisso:
Book Editor & Writing Coach

Lisa PoissoIn an age when anyone can hang out a shingle on the internet as a book editor, your manuscript is safe with me. Editors aren’t just people who love books or were good at English in school. They’re trained professionals with a specific skill set and daily immersion in the publishing industry. I keep up with editorial and publishing trends so your manuscript gets edited to today’s standards, for today’s publishers and readers.

Some editors take in editing from publishing houses. I prefer to work directly with authors. That moment when you understand how a new-to-you storytelling technique makes your whole story come together? That’s what lights my creative fires. I want to help you find clarity.

My studio staff includes three industrious editorial assistants—two greyhounds and a staghound. #45mphcouchpotatoes #adoptdontshop

And of course, I love books. I love to chat about books and writing and editing on Twitter and Facebook. Away from my desk, I belong to several book groups and am a voracious lover of books (and that heady grass-and-vanilla scent we love so well—mmm). I want your book to become something I’d crave curling up with in my reading chair, too.
