  Liza Burby
 
Professional/Personal Overview
  I am a well-respected journalist-author-editor-educator who specializes in project-based management. I have created multiple publications—including my own award-winning magazine and accompanying website.

When it comes to magazines, newspapers, and books, I’m a Jill-of-all-trades. I can manage all editorial from the concept stage to working with an editorial team, including assigning, editing, and writing. I can also manage art and production teams—trafficking is a challenge I enjoy—as well as interface with vendors, including printers and distributors. I also have experience managing advertising sales teams, and understand how both sides of the business need and can benefit each other.

I also simply appreciate the fine art of crafting ideas into a polished, finished product.

Call me if you need a publisher, editor, and writer with executive management skills to help you produce a book, magazine, social media content, or newspaper.
