Robin Rauzi is a freelance editor specializing in nonfiction, particularly op-eds and other forms of persuasive writing. She was a full-time writer and editor at The Los Angeles Times for 13 years, during which time she worked on the entertainment, travel and opinion desks. Her last position was articles editor for the Op Ed page, which meant collaborating with activists, academics, politicians and other subject matter experts to craft lively and convincing essays.
She started Get Rauzi Editorial Services in 2009 to provide line editing to companies, nonprofits, writers and publications. (She continues to provide temporary vacation-relief editing for the Times.) She’s edited scores of corporate white papers and reports, edited books on the farm bill and climate change, worked on multiple creative projects for the LA Phil, and built a few web sites too. In mid-2017 she launched a online personal writing program called 40 Days & 40 Writes, which you can read about at birdsinabarrel.com.
Robin's approach to editing is deeply shaped by journalism, where it’s the job of an editor to collaborate with a writer to produce the best work in service of the reader. Years on a daily newspaper also mean she gets up to speed on new topics in a hurry and turns things around on a tight deadline.
Robin has a BFA in screenwriting from USC and a master’s degree in journalism from Ohio University. She has four cats, practices yoga three times a week, sings in two choirs, and grows the best backyard avocados in Silver Lake.Close
