Writing & Editing

Communication is so much more than words.
If you have something to say, I can help.

Effective communication goes beyond spellcheck. To say what you mean – and say it well – requires attention to tone, voice, logic, structure and plain language in addition to the basics (grammar, punctuation, spelling). I’ll help your message crystallize into clean prose, your ideas shine with tidy brilliance.


Writing

Let me save you time, effort and frustration. I’ll help you move from idea to final, polished copy. Tell me what you want to communicate, the audience you’d like to reach and the general feel you’d like to achieve, and I’ll write it for you. My approach is collaborative and constructive. The accuracy and professional quality of my writing is informed by many years of editing expertise.

Editing

As an editor, I help make your writing effective. Communicating well leads to greater understanding and, sometimes, even inspiration. Starting with your existing text, I will fine-tune the style, tone and voice to produce an error-free, professional piece that is effective, clear and on-point for your audience. I’ll keep your dangling modifiers in check and stop your run-on sentences in their unfortunate tracks.

Editing services

I offer a range of editing services tailored to your needs, from structural editing (developing the outline of a manuscript) and substantive editing (a full re-write) to lighter variations of copy editing.
