Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $38

We've long known that our skills are meant to help people share their stories and knowledge. So we left our "real" jobs (at a major publisher and an award-winning magazine) to begin Duet Write in 2008 and have never looked back.
Accomplished ghostwriters and editors, our passion and exceptional gift is helping people write their memoirs.

We've also ghostwritten published books on business, self-help, education and parenting topics.

We live for this. It's our full-time job. One edits what the other writes - where one leaves off, the other...

Service Description

Duet Write LLC is the collaboration of two like minds - and distinct personalities.

Friends for more than 30 years, Susan Frasca and Josephine Scanlon have long known that our shared passion for writing would unite us in business as it united us in spirit when we met in a college English class.

After working individually as writers and editors, wishing that we could work together, we took the leap. Our similarities - and differences - perfectly complement one another, enabling us to write as one, while each brings a fresh perspective.

We're members of the Editorial Freelancers Association and the International Freelance Writing Organization, and annually attend the National Writers Workshop to hone our skills.

Our combined skills and experience leave no page unturned. Duet Write offers two professionals dedicated to the art of writing and publishing, in one closely knit team.

We are experts at arranging information into organized and cohesive content , and choosing the right tone and style for each project.

As ghostwriters, we excel at creating characters and settings that are distinctly individual.

We are meticulous in editing for style, grammar, spelling and length, and in proofing final copy for consistency, flow and typos.

Our strong technical command of English is equaled only by our passion and commitment to excellence in the printed and published word. Confident and independent thinkers, we can work with as much or as little direction as our clients...
