Service Description

I offer writing, editing, translation, and theological consultancy services for academic, devotional, and literary content.

As a writer, I commonly supply original articles and article series ranging from ~800 words to 20,000+. I write for academics and specialists (in multiple formats: MLA, APA, Chicago...) as well as for general interest or lay readers. I have also provided copy for mobile apps and websites.

As an editor, I work with clients mainly on books and articles for publication, but enjoy working on periodicals as well, which I have experience both founding and running.

As a translator, I bring materials from French and German into English. Past projects have included everything from personal correspondence to classical oratory to academic articles.

As a theological consultant, I have helped many clients ensure that their message is being communicated clearly and appropriately in varying faith contexts. My work here has included aiding an interfaith peace initiative to find common ground (and avoid accidental offense) and helping a playwright to dig more deeply into the meaning of his story's biblical characters and symbols.

I do not provide ghostwriting services. Though I am happy to transfer copyright and other legal title to commissioned work to the client, I reserve the right to be credited as at least a co-author of any original work written, and as an editor or translator on any work for which those services have been provided.
