Welcome


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

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 dozens of 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.
