About Our Team
Rachel Schmidt is a content and copy editor for Weapenry. Prior to joining the Weapenry team, she was an editorial intern for two and a half years at two small independent presses. She’s edited a number of fiction novels and short stories, including a six book series.
Rachel received a B.A. in English from Arizona State University, which is where her love for science fiction, fantasy, and YA stories truly became her passion. When she isn’t reading or editing, she enjoys traveling to new places, trying to find the best brunch spot, and dragging her friends to the concerts of her favorite obscure artists.
Analía Cabello is a content and copy editor for Weapenry. She has spent the last seven months as an editorial intern with two literary agencies, where she evaluated and assisted in developing a variety of fiction and nonfiction projects ranging from children’s books to new adult books to pop-culture-inspired cookbooks. She has been completing line edits and proofreads on essays and short stories for friends and family for eight years and counting! She had a three-year stint as a copy editor in high school, after helping the school news magazine create the position.
Analía received a B.S. in Child Development, a B.A. in Comparative Ethnic Studies, and a minor in Psychology from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. In her free time, she devours as many new YA releases as she can get her hands on, explores the outdoors, and experiments with new recipes.
