Are you struggling with a draft? Buried under a mound of notes?

Let me help.

I’m Wendy Lyons Sunshine, a freelance writer, editor, and collaborator with a knack for creating order out of informational chaos. My toolbox includes a Masters degree in professional and technical communication, a Bachelors degree in English, phi beta kappa, and more than 20 years of print and online publication experience.

You may have caught my articles and essays in The New York Times, AARP Magazine, ScientificAmerican.com, or other outlets. I also help world-class experts distill their wisdom for a broad audience.

Big ideas, made clear.

Highlights of my experience include:

  • Best-selling book collaborations with leading experts
  • Award-winning journalism
  • Educational modules and e-books for diverse organizations

After work, I walk dogs at the local shelter and celebrate what experts share about raising happy, well-adjusted dogs and humans.

If you are looking for a proven writer or editorial partner… when words and meaning matter… for stories that make a difference, contact me and let’s discuss your project.
