Service Description

My name is Karen Zeedick and I am a professional editor and writer with more than 20 years of experience. I would love to help make your project stand out from the crowd!

I offer top-quality editing, writing and proofreading services on a timely basis. I use AP style for a clean, consistent result. As a former magazine editor I am well-versed in all aspects of project management, including quality writing and clean, consistent editing.

After spending several years working for a government news website, I am branching out to offer my services to a wider audience. I can help improve your project's readability and correct sentence structure and punctuation errors. I can write engaging and entertaining text that draws the reader in and leaves no question unanswered. It's all in the details!

During my years in the publishing industry I have garnered awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, Parenting Publications of America, National Mature Media Awards, and Women in Communications.

I am looking forward to working with you!
