Overview

Everything you need throughout the writing process, from brainstorming to publishing a final product. If you are looking for a developmental editor, I have worked on several book-length manuscripts to help with character, plot, setting, flow, organization, and marketability. If you want a final polish before sending your manuscript out, I am a painstaking and detail-oriented copyeditor. I also work as a copywriter/ghost writer.

Service Description

The services I offer fall into three broad categories: (1) idea/content development, (2) writing, (3) copyediting. I am happy to take work that falls into any of these categories or that spans all three.

Idea/Content development:

Writing:
I can draft articles, creative pieces, legal writing, reports, promotional materials, and many other forms of writing. Some examples:

Copyediting:
