Greetings. Robin Rauzi here.
I'm a freelance editor specializing in nonfiction, particularly opinion writing, cultural criticism, and personal essays and memoirs. I was a writer and editor at The Los Angeles Times for 13 years, the final few as an articles editor for the Opinion section, where I helped activists, academics, journalists and political figures hone their arguments in op-eds.
I grew up in a small town in central Ohio, moved to Los Angeles to attend the prestigious USC film school at 18, and pretty much never left. Two Midwest winters at Ohio University (earning a master's degree from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism) sent me scurrying back to warmer climes and a job as an arts and entertainment writer for The Times.
My approach to editing is deeply shaped by my experience in journalism, where it’s the job of an editor not just to point out problem spots, but to offer solutions. Years on a daily newspaper also mean I can get up to speed on new topics in a hurry and turn things around on a tight deadline.
I founded Get Rauzi Editorial Services in 2009 to provide high-caliber editing to companies, nonprofits, independent writers and staff-strapped publications.Close
