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 showcasing creators living with chronic illness, mental illness, and disability.
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 poetry. 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. My debut poetry book, The Uncertainty of Light, is forthcoming from Blanket Sea Press in February 2020.
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!
