Curious? Excellent—it’s important you’re comfortable with your editor so you can establish a collaborative relationship.

Clearing Blocks is run by Jen Anderson, a trusted writer and editor with more than ten years of experience in a variety of professional environments. Jen draws on her corporate background in project management, sales, politics, and marketing to creatively spin content for specific audiences and untangle convoluted language. She's also a full-time writer and communications specialist who understands what it's like to be on the receiving end of constructive criticism. You can be doubly sure she knows how to work efficiently under tight deadlines. 

Her clients include independent writers, poets, magazine producers, small businesses, and other creators looking for a nuanced, personal approach to editing and content development. Her goal is to use her time and talents to help you become a better writer and self-editor.

Jen holds a certificate in copyediting from UC San Diego Extension, and she studied creative writing, photography, and marine biology at Roger Williams University. There, she helped develop and launch a student-run literary magazine featuring poetry and fiction from established and emerging writers. Jen also is a full member of the American Copy Editors Society.

She currently lives in Mid-Michigan with her husband and four cats. Much of her free time is spent reading, cooking, knitting, running, and gaming. She’s also a loud proponent of social justice.
