In 2011, Agate Publishing released my Soup & Bread Cookbook, a revised and expanded version of a limited-edition, self-published collection of recipes drawn from the community meal project I organize at the Hideout. The Agate book collects recipes from Soup & Bread and pairs them with short essays on the various functions of soup as a tool for community buiding and social justice. It’s so far been well received.
On this project I served as both author and project manager, working over the course of six months with a designer, illustrator, intern, and line editor to deliver camera-ready files to Agate and their printer. Since then I’ve also edited book manuscripts for Dmitry Samarov, Nance Klehm, and Aaron Foley. Are you looking for a crack line editor or someone to whip your project into shape and hammer down the details while you focus on the creative stuff? Let’s talk.
