Overview

I provide editing, proofreading and copy writing for a wide range of needs. I have ben writing for most of my life. I draw from years of experience in all things involving the creative written word. From English papers, short stories, essays and theses in college to professional brochures, newsletters, web content, proposals and other documents in my career, I have a rich and diverse supply of knowledge from which to draw. I am an expert speller and a stickler for correct grammar and punctuation. I am also an avid reader, which enriches...

Service Description

I have been writing for over 22 years and have experience in a number of areas in both the business and non-profit sector. My specialties include sharp proofreading skills and editing for style. My experience includes professional bios, letters, brochures, viewbooks, e-mail campaigns, web content, grant writing, proposals, essay and/or paper proofreading and editing and book or manuscript editing. Some of my areas of knowledge include philanthropy, real estate, commercial construction, charitable organizations, churches, schools and support organizations. Since my specialty is editing, many are the college papers, books, newsletters, sales materials and corporate documents I have proofread and revised. I have worked closely with executives who need their bios polished and non-profits who need a provocative grant written. Writing seems to be either a source of anxiety or a neglected priority for many professionals and students. I feel there is no excuse for poor grammar or sloppy structure in any written text put before the public eye. Since the quality of your work and your reputation are reflected in the quality of the materials that represent you, it is important that the material be well-written and error-free. If you put my meticulous style to work for you, your clients, professors and colleagues will see nothing that is anything short of impressive.

Editing, revision or proofreading of many document types, including:
- Manuscripts
- Fiction/Novels
