Curriculum Director and Ask the Editor Columnist
Jeanette Smith is a writer, editor, speaker, and cat Instagrammer based in Dallas, Texas. She started freelancing in 2016, writing blogs on everything from cookies to architecture to podiatry. Today, she blogs about topics close to her heart—the technical and emotional sides of the editing process.
Jeanette is the founder of Golden Rule Editing, a company aiming to help writers through the editing process with self-editing courses and professional developmental and line editing. With the right mindset, knowledge, and tools, every writer can tackle their editing goals to produce the best draft possible. She is always accepting submissions for novels and memoirs—particularly sci-fi, speculative fiction, humor, and romance.
When she’s not writing or editing, you can find her absorbed in a Netflix marathon or teaching a scuba diving class.
