Hello! My name is Ekta Garg, and I am the creator of this blog, The Write Edge. As a publishing professional, you may be looking for the next writer or editor to join your team. Why should you come to The Write Edge for your publishing solutions?
Because I am a writer and editor with a passion for the written word. From my experience in my teens as a spelling bee champion to my first job as a professional writer and editor, words to me are essential even in this fast-paced world. I have been trained in one of the best journalism schools in the country–the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. My talent, passion, and drive have been honed to offer any employer the best in efficiency and organization.
In my first job I was the editor of and one of the writers for the premier medical newspaper in the Portland, Ore., area. Within six months of my joining that position, I doubled the page count of the newspaper from a minimum of eight pages per issue to 16 to 20 pages per issue.
Along with running the medical newspaper, I simultaneously handled other special-project publications, including home show magazines for the Portland Home Builders Association, the magazine section in the center of the Gresham, Ore., Chamber of Commerce directory, and a special multicultural magazine (of which I was the sole writer and editor) designed to attract professional groups of various ethnicities to Portland.
I’ve had experience writing for and editing a variety of other publications, including those covering the South Asian diaspora as well as lovers of Bollywood films. My book reviews also are regularly featured on Bookpleasures.com. In addition, I’m a freelance editor, working with writers to shape their manuscripts (whether fiction or non-fiction) and contributing to the publishing community. You can find more information about what services I offer here.
I’ve had the good fortune to work with many talented writers. Here is what some of them have to say about my work.
I welcome the chance to try something new by considering unique opportunities in the publishing world. I know I have the skills needed to enhance any publication and add to it a fresh voice. If you’ve been looking for the next writer/editor of your publication, you’ve found that person. Please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to it!
