Service Description

Services offered include writing, line editing, content editing, copy editing, and proofreading. Here is a brief overview of my projects and experience in a few different areas:

Creative Prose

I relish the opportunity to help other creative writers fine-tune their work. Iíve done copy editing, line editing, and proofreading for manuscripts by both established and emerging authors. I would also be willing to consider developmental editing, content editing, or ghostwriting projects.


Small Businesses

Small businesses account for the majority of my clientele. I take time to understand what makes my clientís services or products unique, and I tailor the content to suit each clientís style and audience. Projects have included web content, brochures, service descriptions, internal resource materials, and blog articles.


Journals/Periodicals

I become proficient with new genre conventions quickly, so Iíve line and copy edited journal articles for a diverse range of disciplines, including business science, history, linguistics, information technology, and nursing. Iíve also written several articles, including features, for trade publications.


Nonprofit Development

My career history includes six years of nonprofit experience. Iíve drafted funding applications, appeal letters, internal program documentation, small grants, and client resources. In 2009 I completed a three-week grantwriting course through the University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work.
