Service Description

> Government contract proposals - I will review the solicitation and provide content, based on your raw materials, that meets the requirements. I will sign a confidentiality agreement with you so that your corporate knowledge is protected. Experience: I have drafted many technical and management proposals, including formatting past experience and resume submissions to highlight directly relevant information.

> Proofreading and editing - I make sure that the writing flows well and is free from grammatical, punctuation, and syntax errors. Experience: Many, many years of writing professional documents (white papers, standard operating procedures, policies, etc.) as well as proofreading, editing, and approving the work of others.

> Articles (informational) - Tell me the topic, and if I don't know much about it, I will research it. I have found that writing articles requires about 80% upfront research before the actual writing commences. I have published monthly travel / local interest articles in a regional news magazine.

> Newsletters - I use Microsoft Publisher to draft the newsletters and provide them in .pdf format. Experience: I provided newsletters for a camera club and a real estate office.

> Web Site Content - I maintained the web site content for a local camera club for several years.
