An editor is a professional who must limit himself / herself to modifying only a writer’s words, sentences and paragraphs for the sake of clarity, coherence and cohesiveness. Once the editing process results in the sacrifice of the authorial voice, the edited draft is no longer the artistic creation of the writer but rather, the product of an overzealous red pen-user.

I am simply hülya. Life has given me several of the utmost valuable gifts: A daughter, a grandson and a granddaughter. Friends who are ready and willing to come to my rescue regardless of the level of despair I am in are also in plentitude. They are my cankardeşlerim, what we may call "soul sisters" in English. As for the post-birth acquisitions of some importance to some (or many) people, I fulfill professional functions as a Penn State Liberal Arts faculty; an incorrigible lifelong educator with endless enthusiasm to teach and learn; the Director of Inner Child Editing Services; a writer - poetry equals my life, after my child and grandchildren, of course. I am also a literary translator. When it comes to my worldview, I am a dedicated and devoted humanist. View all posts by NhülyaYILMAZ
