Service Description

EDITING:
I clarify your message, develop your voice and fine-tune your writing. I discover your unique talents while smoothing over the bumps.

WRITING:
I provide informative, grammatically excellent and thoroughly proofread writing. An experienced researcher, I pride myself on producing reliable information in a reader-friendly format. As a working journalist, I value efficiency, and know that timely copy is valuable copy. I edit and proofread my own writing, so you can be confident of receiving excellent work, ready to go ahead of deadline.

PROOFREADING:
Mistakes can mar the reader's perceptions of a product, so I urge all website owners, publishers and writers to have their content proofread before publishing.
