“Writing is the process of revealing ourselves and our connection with humanity.”  

Welcome. I'm Carol Test, a full-time author, freelance editor and writing coach based in Phoenix, Arizona. I specialize in writing fiction, providing copy for upmarket web and print publications and coaching writers working on both fiction and non-fiction manuscripts.

Whether you're looking for clear, polished copy or one-on-one coaching with a writing professional, I'm committed to helping you succeed in your creative endeavors, from inspiration to publication and all of the steps in between.

My background includes a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from The University of Arizona, and more than a decade of experience teaching writing at the college-level and editing both literary and corporate publications.

I invite you to take a look around the site and contact me for a free consultation regarding my services and rates. Let's work together to bring your creative vision to life on the page.
