Sounding Out!

Over ten years ago, I co-founded one of the first academic blogs on sound studies, Sounding Out! with Aaron Trammel and Jennifer Stoever. (Read more on the Editorial Collective here.) Since its foundation, I have worked as Managing Editor–in that role I oversee the blog when the Editor-in-Chief is unavailable, I curate one month-long blog forum a year, and connect with different organizations and possible guest writers. In addition to my managerial role, I edit guest writers on a regular basis. At Sounding Out!, I learned to edit from content to style to grammar and syntax, and it has influenced my approach as a developmental editor today.
