Tamiko Nimura: Other Places to Find My Writing


Tamiko Nimura: My Writing Portfolio

As a freelance writer, I write about issues that interest me including (but not limited to) books, food, family, race, diversity, education, yoga, fine arts, and Asian America.

As an editor, I’ve provided developmental editing for two book manuscripts. I’ve copy-edited articles, history books, websites, newsletters, and other direct mass mailings. I’ve coached college and high school students in a number of writing assignments and contexts. I worked as managing editorial assistant at an academic journal for two years, which gave me a strong understanding of the editorial and publication process. As a former educator, I always try to encourage writers by pointing out the best parts of their writing, and then asking questions or making suggestions for making their work even stronger.

I’m always looking for interesting opportunities to work with interesting people and organizations. Please feel free to send me a message (kikugirl at kikugirl dot net) if you’d like to work with me or know more about my work.
