Our main focus is in-depth features but we work with other story forms including documentary, book, television and web content. Editing includes reviewing scripts and coaching other aspects of story telling: planning, research, assigning, reporting and interviewing.
We offer vision, design, direction and delegation of large and small series. We can offer editorial support at any point in a large project or series or see it through from start to finish.
COACHING, MENTORING AND TRAINING
A key component of the Indie Edit style is coaching, training and mentoring. We see each edit as a teaching opportunity and we strive to ensure that each reporter's skills as journalists and radio storytellers have grown by the end of our editing process.
EDITORIAL GAPS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SUPPORT
Indie Edit can cover open editorial positions in your newsrooms as you search for the perfect candidate or cover vacation or maternity/paternity leaves. It also offers editing support to stations that lack the in-house resources to produce NPR quality work consistently.
WRITING, EDITORIAL AND JOURNALISM WORKSHOPS
We offer a variety of workshops including writing for radio, storytelling and editing.
Indie Edit will come up with a customized editing program tailored to your needs. This includes individual rates for feature editing, day rates, project or series rates and cost-effective annual, bi-annual and quarterly contracts.
Indie Edit gave our small stations in Carbondale and Aspen the ability to complete a high impact series - Water in the West. Wading through a complex topic and merging ideas was all made easier with Indie Edit. I look forward to working with them again soon.

As public radio reporters we carry with us the lessons that we learn from smart, insightful editors. An edit from Kate or Alisa makes any story better, but they also teach reporters how to become better editors of their own work - and that feeds a career for life.
