About this pro
Rob is a natural born editor. He notices every typo in written (and spoken) words and has to refrain from correcting them! He helps my business letters and emails sound clear and professional and helps me keep on point with what I'm trying to communicate to clients. He also edited my bio page for my business website. Rob is intelligent, honest and very easy to work with. I highly recommend him!Apr 17, 2017
"In addition to proofreading and editing services, Robert provides various fundraising, grant-application and promotional writing services for our hospital. I have worked with him for over 15 years on a variety of projects ranging in size from individual correspondence to multi-page promotional packets to lengthy grant applications. No matter the specific end product, he takes the diverse information and varying needs of each project and crafts them into a well-communicated, streamlined and impacting and effective final product."Mar 11, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $20/hour for proofreading, $35/hour for developmental editing and $45/hour for final editing.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I want to give the client what they want. If they don't know much about publishing I try to ease them along and understand the process and realities of the business. Then I have them tell me what they're looking for - someone to check spelling or grammar or someone to critique the flow and readability of their document or story, etc. We decide together from there what is needed and then I do it as perfectly as I am able. I want my client's work to shine and be as effective as possible, be it a business letter or brochure or the next 'Great American Novel.'
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Undergraduate degrees in literature and writing and then literature, computer and graphic design studies while in grad school.
