Hello all!!!! XD
I am an editor by the name of Zumae. I just received the 'okay go' on becoming an editor, and am having a hard time containing my excitement. I hope that if offered the opportunity that I will be considered a great asset to a group.
A little about myself, I'm 20 years old, however I will be turning 21 this march. I attended Hunter College in the city of New York. Though I am pursuing a degree in Biology, I have also entertained thoughts of becoming a publisher or an editor. Being as how reading manga is my favorite past times, I feel like the guild is a great opportunity for me to explore my desire to become an editor while feeding my obsession. I am an adamant fan of the yaoi genre, so I definitely will not cringe from anything sent my way.
About the way I edit, I always try to edit in a way that the authors voice will not be lost. I always work hard not to impose my own voice into someone else's work. In this way the story can stay true to the author, while being expressed in a cleaner and clearer fashion.
My experience is for editing is limited to taking honors English classes in high school, as well as being one of the editors/writers for my high school newspaper and magazine. However I am willing to learn anything and everything to produce a high quality of work, not only for myself but for other fans out there.
I hope that you will consider me seriously and make contact soon.
