My name is Alana Saltz. I’m a writer, freelance editor, and writing instructor in Tacoma, Washington. I’m also the founder and editor-in-chief of Blanket Sea Magazine, an online arts & literary publication that showcases disabled creators.
I’ve always loved words and stories. My specialties are memoir, essays, and poetry. Much of my work revolves around writing about my personal experiences with chronic and mental illness. I’m an activist for disability awareness and rights. My debut poetry book, The Uncertainty of Light, was released January 2020 from Blanket Sea Press. My poetry microchap, Seedling, is now available from Maverick Duck Press.
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.
When I’m not writing or editing, you might find me reading books, playing my ukulele, or watching movies. Thanks for stopping by!
