Service Description

I am a freelance writer and editor with over six years of experience. I have worked with graduate students, editing dissertations and theses for clarity and mechanical correctness. I have assisted novelists in unraveling the tangled plot-lines and character relationships that they are spinning into their stories. I have written content for publication in print and on the web for people who had knowledge to share but lacked the means to express it to the world. If you have a collection of words that needs to be either polished or produced, then I will work with you as well.

I will take on any project for the right client, but I am especially drawn to copy-editing projects for budding creative writers. I enjoy working with aspiring authors to develop their manuscripts through the many hurdles of drafting and all the way to publication. My work experience and my educational background have provided me with not only a strong foundation in grammar and mechanics but also a clear sense of the more subtle nuances of excellent writing.

I also greatly enjoy ghostwriting and standard content writing on a wide variety of topics. I relish the challenge of finding the angle from which even the most seemingly straightforward subject can reveal itself to be multifaceted and engaging. I firmly believe that anything can be written in a way that is interesting to the average reader--you simply have to know how to approach it.
