My product is the written word. For 15 years I've worked as an Arizona-based professional writer and editor.

In 2009 I founded Midnight Publishing to provide reliable, affordable, interactive editing and writing services to businesses and authors all over the country. Our business writing and editing as helped a range of companies craft unique Websites, brochures, newsletters, SEO articles, press releases and presentatoins. Our editing services have assisted authors all over the country perfect and polish up a wealth of manuscripts, from fiction and non-fiction to memoirs and educational texts. Please visit www.midnightpublishingllc.com to see our clients and featured authors.

In 2019 I stepped into the role of Associate Publisher at She Writes Press and SparkPress, two imprints pioneering the field of hybrid book publishing. I manage upwards of 60 authors at any given time through the entire editorila process, from signing the contract to well after the book is on store shelves. 

As a writer and editor, my passion lies in telling the stories of peoples and places, and my work is versatile, both in terms of content and format. I've written for national and local publications, as well as online outlets. My client list includes Adrenaline PR, LA Weekly, Phoenix New Times, USAToday.com, Where magazine and Runway magazine, and key interviews include Alice Cooper, 311, Anthrax, Food Network celebrity chef Beau MacMillan, and Air Force One pilot Mark Tillman, who was on duty during 9/11. The topics I've covered range from Arizona skydiving and Switzerland canyon jumping, to hosting a bourbon tasting and the favorite recipes of rock stars. A large chunk of my portfolio consists of pieces focused on music, travel, culture, fashion, food and wine. One of my ongoing projects is a weekly hard rock and heavy metal column at the Phoenix New Times, the fifth largest alt-weekly publication in the country, where I also contribute regular concert reviews and feature musician interviews. However, I also thrive on the less loud things in life--such as pieces on local farmers, non-profits, road trips and book reviews. My personal portfolio can be seen at www.laurenwisewriting.com.

I'm always looking for new clients, collaborations and writing opportunities, so feel free to get in touch.
