About Two Tales Editing
Whether you need help with the cover letter and CV for your dream job, to cut down your abstract for Biology class to fit on one double-spaced page, proofread your sci-fi novel in progress, or even if you just need someone to play devil’s advocate with your ideas—Two Tales Editing is here to help!
Inspired by the two TAILS of her adorable cats and her passion for literary tales, Megan Barnes founded Two Tales Editing as a way to expand her editorial reach even further to help those wanting to take their writing, no matter the genre, to the next level.
While attending graduate school, one of Megan’s professors shared that most students do well speaking in person but face challenges translating that to the page. The professor believed that the confidence in sharing ideas dwindled as soon as students opened their computers to begin typing out their written assignments. Megan was curious about this and has since dedicated her career to helping academics, creatives, and professionals with putting their best self out into the world through their writing.
Megan graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a Masters in Literature. She has spent over 6 years teaching writing, argumentation, and research practices to first-year college students. Several years ago, she realized that it’s not just students who might benefit from editorial help. It’s everyone! Megan has provided editorial services for academic journals, companies with over 500 clients, novelists, and PhD candidates. This work includes copyediting, fact-checking, content editing, and more.
Two Tales Editing welcomes submissions from any academic, creative, or professional writers. Two Tales Editing encourages submissions from writers from all racial, ethnic, religious, sexual, gender, physical, mental, and socio-economic backgrounds. We seek to promote diverse voices across the academic and literary world and wants to help remove some of the barriers that marginalized communities have faced from a multitude of institutions. Two Tales is committed to uplifting a writer’s individual voice and vision and not superimposing personal preference onto someone’s work.
