Service Description

As one client for editing and proofreading services reports:

"Lisa Sarasohn’s editorial eye and critical mind are a perfect blend. She understands the craft from a writer’s perspective, as she too is a practicing writer. Because of her dedication to her own craft, I find Lisa’s feedback particularly insightful. I highly recommend her services."

Another client for graphic design services says:

"This creative really pays attention to your instructions, is a clear communicator, is grounded, stays in contact and is a very innovative thinker. Highly recommended!"

With a commitment to excellence and meticulous attention to detail, I produce highest quality writing and design for print and onscreen formats.

My education (Brown University, magna cum laude, Honors; Phi Beta Kappa), training, and years of experience as writer, editor, grant writer, and graphic artist equip me to meet your needs at or ahead of schedule.

My expertise in science and health follows from a degree in Biology from Brown University. The national and international awards I've received for non-fiction, fiction, and poetry are proof of my skill in language arts. Graphic designs I've created have won top honors among hundreds of competitors.

Combining linear analysis with all-at-once insight, I provide you an unparalleled level of productivity with word and image.
