Service Description

Can Do!
I have an attitude of "I can do it!" with every project I work on. Whether it's writing, editing, graphic design or programming - I'm a problem-solver and a solution finder. You will already have noticed from my proposals that I do my research *even before I bid*.

My future and potential clients are just as important to me as my current ones!

Writing:
If you are looking for writing work, you will always get unique, well-researched articles that draw on information from at least 3-5 sources. I have been writing for over 30 years now on a daily basis.

If you have writing needs currently, please contact me to discuss topics, the quantity of text needed and the delivery time-frame.

Editing:
I am currently an editor at the fiction journal -Ality (Dashality). I've also had over a decade of experience editing books, poetry, newspapers, dissertations, journal articles and many other texts.

If you have editing needs, please contact me to discuss the length of your work, the topic of your work and the timeline of publication.

Design/file conversion/file preparation:
With my partner who is a senior graphic designer with over 15 years' experience in the printing industry, I can help you not only with your writing and editing projects, but all your other needs as well! Anything to do with programming or design can be done!

Here are some of the other services we offer:

- book cover design - book layout - business kits - brochures - flyers - newspaper advertisements -...
