From manuscripts and biographies, to cover letters and resumes, I ensure words are eloquent and precisely aligned with their intended desired outcome. I am skilled in copy, content, developmental, and line editing, as well as proof-reading and ghost-writing, all of which are described in detail below.

To make certain we are a good fit, I provide all clients with a courtesy sample of part of their work edited, as well as a free consultation to discuss if what you are needing is what I have to offer. 

My rates are affordable, and fall in line with the industry standards of the Editorial Freelancers Association.

Pricing is by the hour, and for projects that do not require a full hour, a flat rate will be incurred.

Detailed Description of Services:

Copy Editing

With a sharp eye for grammar hiccups, and the ability to hone in on what your audience will perceive, I sweep through your words and ensure you are delivering the exact message(s) you are wanting to convey, free of copyright infringement or plagiarism, and highly accessible to your readers.

Content Editing

From a bird’s eye view I look at the overall structure, in both content and visual aspects of the layout of your words, to create optimal comprehensibility.

Developmental Editing

Need someone with a knack for looking at the “bigger picture”, the progression of events, and the overall pacing and flow of your writing? Does your story need an experienced, intuitive and observant reader to analyze it’s flow, and identify gaps you may not know you have overlooked? Do you need someone skilled at critiquing the essential elements and build-up of your ideas? 

Line Editing

For passages, sentences and sections of your writing needing in-depth care, allow me to use my poetic eye to help you infuse your words with the exact elements you desire.

Proof-reading

I go through your every word and sentence with a fine-tooth comb to ensure there are no spelling, grammatical or sentence structure errors. Similar to copyediting, but grittier in terms of really getting technical about every tiny usage of punctuation and word-choice.

Ghost-writing

If you have something you need to convey but cannot put into words, I am able to take your intention, the essence of your “voice”, and your desired outcome, and infuse exactly what you are trying to convey into a message you feel is your own. With a keen sense of awareness of voice and tone, and an expansive palette of experiences to draw from, I am able to use my intuition and formulate the words you have sitting in your heart, to be laid out for your audience. 

Formulation of Professional Documents

Whether you need an official letter written, a resume cleaned up, or a cover letter that makes you shine on paper, I have written at least 300 of these for people (not over-exaggerating) during my time as an educator, as well as in human services organizations.

Biographies

If your “About Me” page on your site is needing a revival, or you are being required by your company to provide a paragraph outlining your accomplishments, I enjoy creating the perfect “snapshot on paper” of your victories and qualities that make you you.
