Professional Writing and Editing

O n this page you will find samples of my professional writing, including feature stories, press releases, and other web content. Currently I work as an editor at Azusa Pacific University. I have also done freelance editing and proofreading for PatagoniaOhlson Public Relations, and the Fuller Youth Institute, among others. Some of these writing samples will be from my work with the Office of Public Affairs at Fuller Theological Seminary, one of the largest multidenominational seminaries in the world. Please note, as editorial assistant in Fuller’s public affairs office, I often wrote as the voice of Fuller and therefore did not receive a byline. Further, some of my bylines are under my maiden name, Joy Moyal.
