Who is LZ Edits?

LZ Edits is the business name of Lara Zielinsky. The business is registered in the state of Florida.

Lara has freelanced for the last 15 years and edited dozens of manuscripts for both publishers and indie clients. Her business Facebook page has several 5-star reviews.

Special Interests:

While all manuscripts are welcome, Lara is particularly interested in working with authors of narrative books: memoir, fiction, mystery, fantasy, science fiction, and romance. An LGBTQ+ writer of more than 15 years, she is particularly interested in elevating LGBTQ+ voices writing in those genres.


Lara holds a BA in journalism and is finishing a graduate certificate in Professional Writing from the University of Central Florida. Certified to teach English language arts, reading and writing in secondary school, she taught in the classroom for 10 years before moving full time to editing and writing. She has been named a senior judge for the Bi+ Book Awards, and her own books have received several different accolades and awards.

Recently, Lara re-upped her membership in the Golden Crown Literary Society, listed as both an author and editor. She is a full member (2021) of The American Copy Editors Society (ACES).
