Service Description

I am a content writer and editor with 14 years of experience in interpretive writing. In the past 3 years, Iíve added curriculum and brochure writing to my repertoire. Iím also editing novels for Barking Rain Press.

For interpretive projects, I do content and image research, storyline development, writing, editing, and proofreading. I often begin with the client's writing, and edit it so that it's easier to read for the chosen audience.

For novel editing, I begin with intensive content analysis, making suggestions about character development and other structural elements; I then do meticulous copyediting, ending with at least 2 proofreading passes of the text. proofreading.

By nature, good interpretive writing is accessible, vivid, and memorable. I write to a specific grade level, and apply humor and concrete imagery to the text. Interpretive writing is naturally applicable to educational materialsómaking the process of learning fun and interesting.
