About Marcia Santore
I’m Marcia Santore, writer, editor, artist, and owner of Amalgamated Story.
Writing has always been something I’m good at, something that comes easily and fluidly to me. I like to tell stories about people and the interesting things they do. I also like to learn how to do things and then explain them in a way general readers can understand.
I learned editing “on the job” (on lots of jobs, in fact) picking up different styles from AP to APA to Chicago along the way, as well as learning in-house style books for employers and clients, and even wrote a few.
I’m also a visual artist with a BFA from the University of Texas. I exhibit and sell my paintings, which are held in public and private collections in the U.S. and abroad. (Curious? Check out my other website at www.marciasantore.com) My fine art background led to an interest in illustration and graphic design, which are other services I offer here at Amalgamated Story.
So, can one person do all these different things well? Can a writer edit? Can an editor design? Can an artist write? Yes, I can. In fact, that’s what Amalgamated Story is all about. It’s about bringing together all the different elements of a project (a book, a website, any kind of online or offline content) and making them function together as a unit.
Please feel free to explore the different services and portfolios on this site, and use the Contact page to tell me more about yourself and your project. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
