Holly Collingwood is a freelance writer and editor in Fort Collins, Colorado.
In my career, I spent more than 15 years working in the non-profit, financial, and tourism industries.
Organizations I have worked for include:
Partners Mentoring Youth
YMCA of the Rockies
Estes Park Chamber & Resort Association
Home Financial of the Rockies
In 2012, I started Collingwood Writing Services and have been busy taking care of clients ever since.
I received my BA in English from Pacific Lutheran University with a minor in Publishing & Printing Arts. Semesters abroad were spent in Guayaquil, Ecuador and Lancaster, England.
In 2004 I earned an MBA from Colorado State University.
I am a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators as well as Northern Colorado Writers where I continue to take ongoing educational classes.
I am a writer, reader, mother, and wife.
When I'm not doing those things I'm hiking, exploring Northern Colorado, meeting with my critique group, gardening, coaching youth sports, skiing, kayaking, constantly opening the door for the tuxedo cat, or daydreaming.
I was raised in the wide open states of Alaska, Montana, and Oregon on wild blueberries and basketball.
Sometime in the future I would like to learn to read knitting patterns so I can knit things harder than scarfs and baby blankets. A vacation to the Maldive Islands and a sunrise hot air balloon ride are on my bucket list.
