Hayley Abernathy is a professional freelance writer and editor based in Knoxville, Tennessee. 

I have loved working with words my entire life, beginning as a young kid who started a new “book”—bound in construction paper—every few weeks. Now, communicating with clarity and creativity still delights me.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in English with a focus on Writing. While working as a peer writing consultant in college, I realized my love for improving writing, whether my own or someone else’s. After college, I continued honing my editing skills for four years as an middle- and high-school English teacher. 

In addition, for seven years I volunteered my time by writing copy to market an annual charity event, raising over $35,000. (You can still view my copy for this event at www.HarvestEastTN.com.)

I am passionate about using words well to tell stories that matter.

Contact me today for a free consultation about your writing or editing project. I’d love to team up to tell your story.
