Venessa Giunta an author of weird stuff, a senior editor at Loose Id, LLC, an erotic romance e-publisher, and a freelance editor. She holds an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University, where she learned more about writing and the business of writing than can comfortably fit in her head (corks work really well in the ears for this). What she, and most editors, looks for in a manuscript can be found in her essay “Demystifying What Editors Want” in Many Genres, One Craft, which she is vaguely amused to say is a whole lot of her MFA in a $30 book.
Venessa enjoys giving back to the writing community. She served as Guest Liaison for Seton Hill Alumni Association’s In Your Write Mind Workshop (Pittsburgh, PA) for six years and has been Assistant Director of the Writers’ Track at Dragon*Con (Atlanta, GA) since 2011.
