editing • narrative development

In addition to writing features, profiles and essays, I’m available to work on custom narrative projects. I’ve consulted both businesses and individuals on projects such as script development and nonprofit proposal writing. As a copy editor, I worked for alt-weekly Willamette Week, Bitch magazine, and have both developmental and line-editing experience on a number of book-length manuscripts. Referrals avail. upon request.

what people say

Nina Lary has a bright mind and a way with words. She excelled at storytelling and building narrative arcs into her creative non-fiction. I’d definitely hire her.
