Kelly Dent | Editor & Writer

I’m a no-nonsense content editor by day, and a writer, poet, and reader the rest of the time.

When I’m not working with words, I’m probably cooking something tasty or playing video games.

Words are my thing.

If I’m not working with them, I’m playing with them. I love writing, enjoy editing, and get as big of a kick out of buying books as I do reading them.

But here, you’ll find a bit about my professional life.
