I'm Ashlen

Hand Drawing

I'm a nonfiction writer, editor & educator based in Fairfax, Virginia.

I produce content for news organizations and brands, specializing in feature writing and blogs. A former journalist and video producer, I am now an MFA candidate at George Mason University studying Creative Nonfiction Writing.



Feature Writing

With over five years of journalism experience, I am passionate about storytelling. I've built my career on making complicated information accessible to readers. In addition to news writing, I specialize in feature and blog writing as well as personal narrative. I keep my writing engaging, personable, and well-informed.  

Copy Editing

I cover a wide range of editing services including, sentence-level grammar checks, composition and clarity assessments, and manuscript editing. I am a certified writing consultant at the George Mason University Writing Center trained in multi-disciplinary writing. I am also proficient in AP style, but a fan of the Oxford comma. 

English Writing Tutoring

I teach English writing at all levels from elementary education through college-level writing, including ESL. Whether a student needs help with a writing assignment or English composition, each tutoring session is personalized to the student's needs and goals. I provide a safe, non-judgmental space for students to expand on their writing skills.
