About Me

david-downingMy name is David Downing, and I’ve always loved working with other writers and their stories. I earned my MFA in creative writing at the University of Washington, then taught fiction writing for 10 years at UW Extension. The first four or so years I taught on campus in the evening, and then I developed the distance learning Introduction to Literary Fiction Writing curriculum and taught online for six years.

In August 2010 I began supplementing my day-job income with fiction editing work. A year later, I moved over to freelance fiction editing full-time, and I’ve loved it.

If what you’ve seen on this site appeals to you, I’d love to talk to you about working together. You can reach me at david@maxeditorial [dot] com.
