Kammy Wood The Modern Wordist (Editor, Author Coach, Ghostwriter) EP 76: July 26th
In today's episode, I get to chat with an old friend, Kammy Wood. For as long as I can remember, Kammy has been an avid reader and lover of words so it made perfect sense to learn Kammy started her own business working with words and writers. Bio Provided by Kammy Wood: The first hints of Kammy’s love of words appeared at age two, when she “read” books aloud, including classics like Caps For Sale. She readily retold the stories by looking at the pictures, and astounded unknowing adults with her interpretations of selections from the Captain Kangaroo catalog. By age nine, her editorial inclinations emerged — she “rewrote” TV show plots on the fly, and pointed out typos in advertising copy to family and friends. She was gifted a typewriter as a teen. Then a word processor. Then another. Then a computer. You get the point. She wrote a lot, and for her own entertainment. She earned a BA in English from Emporia State University in 1999, and went to work at her local Barnes and Noble soon after, which led to a 17-year career. In 2010, while still at B&N, she started her freelance editing and proofreading business, helping authors and business clients with hundreds of projects over the course of 10-plus years. In 2023, she launched The Modern Wordist, expanding her services to include creative writing coaching and consulting, ghostwriting, and co-writing as a way to help even more people create great books and content.
