With the help of a great editor, your writing can be better than you ever imagined. I’ll be your coach, cheerleader, and ultimate supporter, even if that means giving you an occasional kick in the rear when you need it. Together, we’ll refine your vision and discover your unique voice. I’ll help you organize your content so it’s logical, clear, and structured well. I’ll polish and rewrite it to eliminate repetition and clunky wording, and I’ll take care of those pesky mechanical details like punctuation and grammar that publishers, readers (and your sophomore English teacher) are so passionate about.

Everybody needs an editor. No matter what kind of content you write—websites, journal articles, blogs, marketing materials, even emails—a fresh set of eyes can almost always help you catch errors and identify ways to improve your message. Your writing is your handshake, your business card, your resume—if it’s polished, clear, and concise, it will have a monumental impact on every aspect of your business. If it’s done poorly, it can have a devastating effect on the way your readers, clients, and colleagues view your level of professionalism.

Studies suggest that up to fifteen percent of people who see errors in marketing and advertising materials will decide not to buy a product or service based on that single factor. Can you afford to lose that many potential customers, readers, and contacts? Probably not.

A good editor can be one of your most valuable tools for creating a positive image for yourself or your business. In today’s wired world, where almost everyone uses some form of writing—from blogs to eBooks to email campaigns—to differentiate themselves from the rest of the crowd, it’s more important than ever to make sure your story is as compelling as possible.
