Alana 4*My name is Alana Saltz. I’m a writer, freelance editor, and writing instructor in Tacoma, Washington.

I’ve always loved words and stories. I decided that I wanted to be a writer when I was six years old, and I haven’t looked back since. My specialties are memoir, essays, and young adult fiction. Much of my work revolves around writing about my personal experiences with chronic and mental illness. I’m a vocal advocate for disability awareness and rights.

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 uke, or watching movies on Netflix. Thanks for stopping by!
