At Burgeon Design and Editorial, I work closely with writers to
Hey! I’m Tiffany.
I’m a writer, editor, and designer who loves helping out other writers. (I don’t like the term “aspiring writers” much—let’s get rid of it! We’re all writers here). I’m here to help your work bloom and flourish, whether you’re looking to create an author website or seeking a developmental editor to help hone your writing skills.
Originally from Florida, I moved to Portland, Oregon trading the never ending sunshine for… never ending clouds. And I haven’t regretted it one bit.
A few things I love: cats, hiking, backpacking, Harry Potter, Earl Grey tea, and just about every kind of craft.
“As a talented writer and accomplished editor, Tiffany helps other writers hone their skills and find their voice. She is my go to editor and I would highly recommend her services to writers of all kinds. Her creativity and skills will truly help your writing blossom! It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Tiffany and I could not be happier.”
“Tiffany Grimes gave me valuable insight for my novel that helped me dive deeper into character development and world building. Her advice helped me realize the vision for my project.”
-Olivia Ghafoerkhan, Story Spinners
“You won’t regret working with Tiffany! Her attention to detail is meticulous, and her creativity consistently blossoms into beautiful results. Place your trust in Tiffany’s creativity—you won’t be disappointed!” -Tashi Saheb-Ettaba, Fragments of Sorrow
“As an author herself, Tiffany understands the shape of stories and the elements needed for their success. She is keenly aware of how options of word choice, structure and grammar affect the impact of a story on its readers. Her editorial suggestions are smart and insightful, helping me identify both the strengths and weaknesses of my writing."
"Tiffany will meet you where you’re at with your manuscript. Sometimes you need compassionate cheerleading, sometimes you need a real-talk WWE smackdown, and she can do both and everything in between. Best of all, she straight up just cares about your story and wants it to grow. No overly prescriptive edits, and no judgement.”
Tools For Writers
The difference between beta readers and professional editors. (Yes! There’s a difference!)
These are the books on writing and creativity that I come back to, over and over again.
A developmental editor (dev editor) can help improve the content and structure of a manuscript, highlight what’s working, and give you tools to strengthen your story.
