Hello, everyone! My name is Cassandra Henken. I hail from rural Minnesota, where I live with my spouse, our three children, and three cats.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved words. Not just reading them, but writing them, too. And, of course, editing what has already been written.

I began writing when I was just nine years old. I’ve always wanted to be a published writer, and finally, for the first time, I will be! Please look for my poem, “The Robin,” in the online literary magazine Mothers Always Write.

As well as always wanting to be a writer, I often thought about being a professional editor, too. There’s something so satisfying about taking an ugly first draft and making it pretty. Hence, Cassandra Henken Editing was born.

I offer affordable editing services with a friendly approach. I am quick, thorough, and, most importantly, respectful of the author’s voice and vision.
