Service Description

Mary excels at exacting English grammar, spelling and punctuation. Dick has over 20 years of experience in the journalism and public relations fields. We both write and edit. Mary ensures that we produce grammatically-correct copy.

We write, edit and proofread material featuring a wide variety of topics. Recently written blog topics include solar panels, concrete sealers, DIY how-to projects, arts and crafts, knitting and crocheting, environmental studies, aquariums, dogs, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, search engine optimization (SEO), electrician training, social media marketing, branding, travel destinations, and B2B rentals.

Writing resumes, LinkedIn profiles and introduction letters are part of our repertoire.

Crafting effective press releases, which are actually used and not thrown away, is another specialty. Recent press releases include those for attorneys, a natural lawn care product, college scholarships, new websites, professional businesses, industrial machines, and business certifications.

Entire websites written by QuillStar include copy for senior property care providers and online advertising/marketing agencies.

Other recent projects include writing an eBook on aquaponics and writing monthly newsletters for an online seller of all-natural bath products.

Interviewing is easy for us. Past feature articles include historical, technical, and human interest stories, such as paleontologist, Jack Horner, the Jurassic Park films adviser.
