John Cannon

Professional editing, decades of experience, and a collegial manner. What else could you want? After a successful run at The San Diego Union-Tribune (I retired a bit early) and an enjoyable stretch at, I now edit fiction and nonfiction manuscripts. I also accept the occasional essay, newsletter piece, or bit of daily journalism.
