When it comes to writing, does the phrase "good enough" send you into apoplectic shock?

That's what happens to me. So if you have the style but lack the grammar, if you have the text but lack the polish, or if you have ideas but lack the words, look no further: you've found your writer and editor in Scribe On Demand.

Service Description

I am an Ivy-League educated ghostwriter, copyeditor, and proofreader with a legal background. I practiced law for 9 years for a major law firm and for a Fortune 200 corporation; this background gives me a unique perspective on business communication needs.

I am also the former Editor-in-Chief of a top academic legal journal, the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Labor and Employment Law (now the Journal of Business Law). As Editor-in-Chief, I oversaw the publication of a quarterly 200+ page academic journal, worked closely with authors to polish their articles, and managed 40 staff editors.

Though I have extensive legal experience, I work with companies that span a variety of fields, including engineering, marketing technology, management consulting, education, and finance.

I work primarily with Chicago, AP, APA, and GPO styles. I am willing to learn and apply any other style--or to help you create your own.

Here is a partial listing of what I can do for your business. Please contact me to discuss your needs.
