Welcome

My name is Alana Saltz. I’m a writer, freelance editor, and instructor based in Seattle. I’m the founder and editor-in-chief of Blanket Sea, a magazine and small press that showcases disabled creators.

I’ve always loved words and stories. Much of my work revolves around my personal experiences with chronic illness and disability. I’m the author of three poetry chapbooks: The Uncertainty of Light (Blanket Sea Press, 2020), Seedling (Maverick Duck Press, 2020), and Where It Was Coldest (Roaring Junior Press, 2021). I also write essays and am a disability rights activist.

I offer professional editing services to writers and students. I’ve worked with over 100 clients on a variety of projects ranging from novels to academic dissertations. I also teach workshops and classes for a variety of organizations and institutions in addition to offering one-on-one coaching.
