Welcome! I am so happy that you are following my work, my reviews, and being active in the writing community. My name is S.R. Stewart and I am an award-winning journalist, poet, and nonfiction author. I consider myself to be a multidisciplinary creative fascinated by many art forms including painting, writing, weaving, beer brewing, gardening, baking, bookbinding, and jewelry making. I've dabbled in just about every type of writing, but find myself most productive when I am helping other writers produce their best work; I also love writing books that help other writers out. Writing isn't my only game though; I am a bonafide nutrition nerd, Legend of Zelda pro, and strong believer that coffee should always be served black.
A Little More About Me:
I am a writer published primarily in narrative nonfiction, news, and poetry.
I am a professional editor with experience working in-house and freelance. Since 2012, my main position has been as the managing editor at Unsolicited Press, a small press in the PNW. I've edited over 200 manuscripts, and thousands of academic papers, documents, and websites.
I am a skilled website designer.
I am a copywriter with over seven years of experience writing web content, newsletters, product descriptions, email campaigns and more for big and little companies.
I am a craftslady. I make handbound journals, jewelry, greeting cards, and other artwork. I am incredibly fascinated by the world of natural skincare, but haven’t found my way into that niche quite yet.
I hold a B.A.S. in English and Nutritional Biochemistry from the University of California, Davis.
I earned an MFA in poetry and creative writing from Portland State in 2016.
