BIO

About Wendy Lee Nentwig…

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Wendy Lee Nentwig fell in love with words at an early age. She went on to study journalism at Biola University in Southern California, becoming editor-in-chief of the school’s student newspaper and spending summers working at varied editorial internships. Her enthusiasm and experience paid off with post-college editorial positions at magazines including Seventeen, Aspire, Virtue and CCM.

For nearly two decades, Wendy Lee has also had a prolific freelance career, founding Punctuation Studio in 2005. During this time, she penned six books for the young adult market and shares co-writing credits on multiple other titles. She’s also a talented ghostwriter. Her vast freelance experience includes project planning and editorial consulting, the creation of specialized editorial style guides for a variety of companies, numerous feature articles and a host of marketing projects for companies ranging from nonprofits like World Vision and African Leadership to companies including HarperSanFrancisco Publishers, O’Charley’s restaurant chain, The Country Music Hall of Fame and Belmont University. Wendy Lee’s portfolio also includes an award-winning ad campaign for Prevent Child Abuse Tennessee.

Currently, Wendy Lee’s ongoing editorial work includes weekly Web and print content for Foundations Recovery Network, The Village Chapel and a freelance editorial position with San Francisco-based music service Rhapsody.com as well as an ever changing mix of one-time projects. Her editorial strengths include easily transitioning between writing and editing and between feature content and promotional copy. Wendy Lee is a stickler for style and grammar consistency and loves using her gifts to help companies and individuals find their voice, communicate who they are and share their story with the world.
