Service Description

Proposals:
I offer a range of services related to proposal creation: requirements audit, content review and editing, content creation (from source material), and document design and custom templating. I can help you analyze any RFP, RFQ, RFI, etc, and develop an action plan for composing a fully conforming response document. If needed, I can also write professional copy from your source material. If you have a complete proposal/response ready, I can also review it against the original RFP to check that all requirements have been met. I've managed the overall project effort on hundreds of proposals, ranging from small city contracts up to very large multi-counrty deals, both in the US and internationally.

Editing / Writing:
I will use my 15 years of experience in editing and writing to hone your project into great shape. I can rewrite existing copy or create new content from source material that you provide. I have ghost-written speeches and editorial articles for executives. I have written two feature-length screenplays, as well as a complete novel and several short stories. I can help you with your fiction or non-fiction book.
