Service Description

The successful functioning of our modern world pivots, in many respects, on the effective and mutually-understood use of the written word. Failings in this regard have complicated and soured personal and business relationships, impeded product launches, scuttled and damaged business mergers, and even contributed to the toppling of regimes.

Although not trained formally as an editor, per se, (e.g., having worked for a publisher, etc.), I believe my extensive "hands-on" experience and resultant firm grasp of English syntax, phrasing, grammar, tense agreement, and the cogent, compelling presentation of the written word,as well as my keen interest in literature and the skillful turn of a phrase, enables me to offer talents that are competitive and will be clearly recognized by any client as "value added."

I can organize (to an extent) your original work product, edit it on all grammatical and syntactical parameters, and re-write or re-phrase it for clarity and impact, make it more compact if desired. Many people in my experience know what they want to say and can do a marginally-credible job in expressing it in words, but their efforts too often are not conveyed with clarity, cohesiveness or the desired emphasis. That is where my talents "enter the picture" - producing a final product that readers will quickly understand and by which they will be often moved or positively disposed.
