Service Description

I offer services in a variety of writing and editing styles. I will only accept a job that I feel 100% confident in completing to perfection.

Throughout the handful of jobs that I have held, I have written copy and social media content, as well as edited marketing plans, business proposals, and informational packets.

While earning my English degree, I edited many students' work, including several creative writing projects, multiple business plans, and both academic and professional papers.

Every area in which I have editing experience, I also have writing experience. In addition to those listed, I have experience in news writing, public relations writing, and creative writing-- all of which I am extremely passionate about.
