Hey, I’m Chelsea, the word fanatic behind Starlight Editorial.
Since I was a little girl, my one true passion has been words: shaping them into art, honing the craft, appreciating the flavor of a story in my mind. I spent hours of my childhood staring up at the night sky, watching the stars dance, and concocting stories in my head that would later reside in notebooks under my bed. As I grew older, working with words and writers across disciplines became a thrill for me. I bless my lucky stars that this is actually my job.
I graduated from Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama, with a degree in English before spending two and a half years as the copy editor at Mobile Bay Magazine, where I still work today. I’ve also spent more than five years in various editorial jobs and internships, including as an assistant editor for Narrative Magazine and a writing tutor for the Spring Hill College Center for Academic Excellence. (For more detailed employment history, please visit my LinkedIn page.)
If there’s one thing I understand, it’s the power of words. As a court reporter, one wrong word in your transcript could mean the difference between a smooth case and a lost job. And for authors, finding your voice via the words on the page can feel daunting. My mission is to ensure that your final product represents who you are.
I’m illuminating the written and spoken word, one page at a time.
