Engineering Editor for Publications
When the writing becomes technical but still requires creative and compelling copy, it’s helpful to have an experienced engineering editor in your back pocket — especially one who has been published in international journals and magazines.
You may wonder how one becomes an editor for engineering topics, and the bottom line is the ability to research and know your subject matter. Honestly, journalists are trained to cover a variety of topics, and editors are trained to edit a variety of topics. My background in both disciplines was useful as I reported on engineering and construction subject matter for publications such as World Coal, Dry Cargo International, World Cement, International Cement Review, and much more. But I also took some coursework to supplement my knowledge and enhance my ability to describe the wonders of engineering and construction in a way that appeals to both experts and non-experts.
The works below are a portion of my portfolio. You’ll see samples and links to some of the publications that have featured my work as an engineering editor, as well as small descriptions of each editorial project.
Engineering Editor — World Coal
The very first image on this blog post (above) is featured in the World Coal article and gives a visual of the masterful design and construction required for geodesic domes. Following is the cover and sidebar description.
My article “Against the Storm” (below) is featured in World Coal and describes the use of weather-resistant domed storage at power plants and the electrical power industry.
Engineering Editor — Dry Cargo International
My article for Dry Cargo International describes the use of domed storage for raw materials and dry bulk in virtually any terrain.
Another article for Dry Cargo International describes solutions for the storage and handling of coal which protect the environment.
Engineering Editor —World Cement
This article for World Cement describes cement storage solutions internationally regardless of the difficulties of terrain and weather conditions.
Engineering Editor — International Cement Review
This article in International Cement Review showcases the ability to contain dust and pollutants while keeping cement inventories dry.
Engineering Editor — Articles in Issue
The article below describes storage solutions for the mining industries in countries around the world.
The article below describes the versatility of domed solutions for churches around the globe, with stunning views of the architectural aesthetics.
I hope this quick trip around the world impresses readers who are interested in reports on inventories and storage solutions, as well as the engineering feats necessary to achieve results. Please contact me for assistance on your own engineering articles—I can help!
