    The Write Way

    (3 reviews)

    My work stands out from the crowd because, though there are other writing help providers out there, my expertise is more well-rounded. I have extensive grammar experience, in addition to experience with content. I go above and beyond by helping you with both of these. I love the English language. It has so many idiosyncrasies and constantly keeps my interest. In addition to that, language sets the tone for how people receive you. I want to use this idiosyncratic language to its full potential for you.

    Looking for someone who can help you with your writing and editorial projects? Searching for tutoring support in reading and writing for yourself or your children? Need someone who knows how to present your skills to the best advantage in a resume? Look no further than Tailor-Made Books. My name is Cynthia, and I'm the owner of Tailor-Made Books. Our editorial services include manuscript evaluation and guidance for authors, as well as writing and editing projects such as resume development and book editing.Tailor-Made Books recently won the 2013 Best in Evanston (IL) small business award for our Resume Services. I have an extensive background in educational publishing, with over 25 years of expertise in developing reading and writing programs for students from Kindergarten through high school and GED prep. I worked my way up through various editorial positions from proofreader to editorial vice president running a production, design, and editorial department. As I built teams of employees, I evaluated resumes, interviewed candidates, and made hiring decisions. While interviewing candidates for my own staff, I discovered that many job seekers who are highly qualified might not get an interview because they do not know the best way to highlight their background and job experience. Because I received so many applications for each opening, I learned how to make up my mind about whether or not to interview a candidate after skimming through the person's resume.This is exactly what most other hiring executives do. An employer is looking for an easy-to-read, correctly formatted resume that succinctly presents the candidate's skills and also gives a sense of the type of employee that person might be. Tailor-Made Books has worked on a variety of projects: *guided 75 women to develop and publish their inspirational life stories; *written resumes that help job seekers present themselves in a professional manner and emphasize their strengths; *edited non-fiction books for independent authors on holistic healing, self-help, and intuition; *edited sci-fi fiction, historical fiction, romance novels, children's fiction, and young adult fiction; *developed teaching manuals for educational publishers as well as manuals for on-site sales training; *written catalog copy for online websites. In 2013, we also began developing Kindle books and publishing them on Amazon. These include children's books, inspirational poetry, and cookbooks. Contact us today to discuss your project. We'd love to help you.

    (7 reviews)

    I'm a responsive, flexible, and creative writer and editor who has years of experience writing and editing stories on deadline and to specification. Regardless of the size or scope of the job, I consider the greater context and use it to inform the piece's voice, style, and substance. I work in marketing and public relations and have consulting experience with nonprofit and for-profit businesses. In my full-time job at a residential academy, I have written press releases that have gained press coverage from outlets, such as WIRED, USNews & World Report, Education Week, as well as a White House invite and mention from President Obama. I love writing, editing, and working on the underlying strategy of communications. I enjoy both the creativity of writing and editing and optimizing efforts which include analyzing and optimizing the success of press releases, e-mail marketing content, print materials, social media posts, and internal communications.

    I tutor high school students, and my specialty is helping students with college application essays. I have successfully guided students writing essays for Yale, Boston College, and the University of Chicago. I also help students prepare for the reading and writing sections of the ACT and SAT. I taught high school English for several years, and also spent ten years as a book publisher. I am also an experienced editor available immediately to edit your manuscript, whether fiction or non-fiction, long or short. I can do both copy editing and general editing for content and effectiveness. I can also write copy. In addition, I can scan and restore your old photographs. In my years at Arcadia Publishing (arcadiapublishing.com--I worked on most of the books published in the Midwest from 2002 through 2011), I scanned and corrected tens of thousands of photographs and edited as many words of text. I have also digitized thousands of photographs in my family's archives. I am in the process of getting a website up and running, as I am just starting my business.

    If your resume, essay, novel or research paper needs some love, I'm the woman for the job! I currently work as a full-time copyeditor for a major corporation, but I want to spend even more of my time immersed in words.
