who i am

My name is Mary Cecilia Nolan. I am an editor, writer, designer and project manager.


With over fifteen years of experience in editing content and designing concepts for both print and digital publications, my goal is to bring creative solutions to every project.


In May of 2015, I graduated from Emerson College with a Master of Arts degree in Publishing and Writing. During my time at Emerson, I have challenged myself with many notable projects which include my first-time creation of an ebook (The New England Book Show Award winner, 2015) and founding a successful pilot program (now course) called emersonPUBLISHES for high school students who are part of Emerson’s free writing program emersonWRITES. emersonPUBLISHES focused on design and print production while actively including students in the design of an anthology.


When I am not creating content or adding the finishing touches to a project, you can find me hiking on a trail, whipping up some delicious scones or sailing (otherwise known as attempting not to capsize).
