My name is Sarah Currin and I am an editor and freelance publishing professional working in Portland, Oregon, on the traditional lands of the Clackamas, Cowlitz, and many other tribes living along the Columbia River.

A technical editor by trade, I am a graduate of Portland State University with my master’s degree in writing and book publishing. I am a collaborative editor for Indigo: Editing, Design, and More and have had the pleasure of working at Ooligan Press, Timber Press, Hawthorne Books, Tin House magazine, Sparkplug Comic Books, and Powell’s Books. I am also a publishing educator teaching book editing at Portland State University. I have extensive experience in all editorial areas and can skillfully edit a manuscript at every stage between acquisition and publication; projects I've worked on range from highly technical papers, business- and IT-focused nonfiction, news articles, and blogs to memoirs, thrillers, essay collections, and literary fiction.

There's nothing more magical to me than the power of words, and I love connecting with people about the ways we communicate. Let me help you perfect your writing and tell your story!

I love refining a piece, whether I'm working to shape raw materials into something wholly different or simply polishing something that needs a finishing touch to make it sparkle. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss your project and receive a quote for any of the following services.

Kim Heacox

The small town of Strawberry Flats sits on a remote Alaska coast, peacefully left to itself—until controversial plans for a road and a bridge threaten to upend everything. Former trapper Salt d’Alene never thought he’d find himself in the midst of such a dispute, but he’ll do anything to provide the best care for his son Solomon, recently diagnosed with muscular dystrophy. Eleven-year-old Kes Nash just wants her father—back from war in Afghanistan—to be normal again. And circling the perimeter of the town is a wolf, Silver, and his pack, quietly watching. Told from three alternating perspectives, On Heaven’s Hill is a vividly powerful story about rediscovering hope and finding new life in the aftermath of trauma. Filled with humor and compassion, it depicts the best of America, a place composed of wildness and kindness.
