(Forever) UNDER CONSTRUCTION

When I was 8 years old, I wrote a neighborhood newsletter that consisted of mostly information about my dog and my next door neighbors. I handwrote it on a single sheet of paper, asked my mom to bring me to Kinko’s to make copies and distributed it to the entire block.

I’ve done a bit more work since then, and my subject matter has expanded a little beyond my dog and neighbors. But I still love to tell stories.

This page will forever be a work in progress, but you can find a sampling of what I’m all about here. You’ll find some of my clips below. If you’re looking for writing in a specific style or on a particular topic, feel free to e-mail me at linda [dot] domingo [at] gmail.com.

Editing Work

As a managing editor, I oversee the production and ensure the quality of the content for three custom lifestyle magazines. My duties include curating the editorial content; creating and maintaining deadlines along the production process; assigning, editing and budgeting for features and departments; fact-checking and proofreading; working with our art department on design and gathering/selecting photography; and writing features and departments. There are probably some things I’ve left off, but I don’t want to bore you (too much).

I’ve been helping churn these out since 2012:
