Lauren helped me to prepare content for a flyer with tips for first-time cat owners. She provided first-draft content and documented sources for that content, along with suggestions for formatting for the intended audience. I made some of my own tweaks, sent it back to her, and she polished that copy for me as well. Once I had it formatted, she also proofread the flyer. The quality was outstanding and the turnaround time was lightning fast. The entire flyer was finished in just a few days, and the end product was exactly what I was hoping for!

Rod assisted me with my book, "David Letterman:The College Years", Guild Press, 1997. He is outstanding for all issues pertaining to structure, grammar, syntax, and content. He's efficient, reliable, and pleasant at all times. Plus, he's has a keen sense of humor, which was helpful when writing about a subject like Dave Letterman!

Editorial and proofreading projects for two separate education websites. Susan (a) met all the deadlines and often beat the deadlines, (b) was more than capable of working independently work out of her house as well as in the office, and (c) did an excellent job finding the needed issues in our services. I would definitely recommend Susan as she was great to work with and did an excellent job.

I did jump, or click immediately, to answer your "ad" when I saw your writing's purpose: a book for Veterans. For a while, I have been exploring avenues to work with or for our Veterans. I just didn't know in what capacity I could offer my best help or support. I have sent resumes to government listings working for the Veterans Administration, checked into becoming a Physical Therapist to work at a Vet Hospital, even answered an ad to re-design rooms and offices at specific Veterans Homes and Hospitals. The opportunity you offer, however, fits my education and hands-on experience, beautifully. In addition to the technical aspects of writing, my enjoyment in teaching it, and putting pen to paper (or keys to ?), a niche I've been searching for may be found and filled. Hope that happens for you too! I achieved a Bachelor of Arts in Communications, Masters in Education at Loyola University in Chicago, specializing in Curriculum. After a few years teaching, and writing curriculum for schools, at all levels, I was formally trained in retail and catalog copywriting, editing, and advertising. My initial assignments were in Sears Retail and Catalog advertising/copywriting, working for all departments, their buyers and sources. After 10 years at Sears, I was hired by Gander Mountain Sporting Goods to help re-structure their catalog, then retail, business. I re-designed the catalog, hired and trained artists, photographers and writers. The Company had planned to "go public" within 3 to 5 years. The re-design of the catalog boosted sales 74% allowing Gander to enter the Stock Market in 1 year and 3 months. At this point, I think I should list the remainder of my writing experience and expertise, for it is quite diverse. The examples given are just a few within each heading. The list is in order of "happening": Brochures: campaigns (Chicago politics, fundraising), festivals (Taste of Chicago, Taste of Lincoln, Last Taste of Summer) clubs (Chicago Film Critics Assn. Chicago Film Festival, Junior League Basketball). Public Relations: Chicago Film Critics, Chicago Film Festival, Polish Film Festival, Idaho Falls Symphony These assignments included writing of press releases, writing "blurbs" for local, and Chicago, newspapers in addition to creating and tending the receptions and film openings. Biographies: producers, actors, publicists for the above groups; notable women in Chicago for "Chicago Women" magazine; artists in music, painting, dance for "Arts Alive" and "Post Register" newspapers, Idaho Falls Idaho (circ. 30,000). Newspapers: Created an arts column for the Idaho "Post Register". The column covered art, sports, educational activities hapenning in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. Created a 12 page newspaper for the Idaho Falls Arts Council. Created a Newspaper for the towns of Swan Valley, Tetonia, Irwin, Victor Idaho and Jackson Hole Wyoming. Teaching: Writing (Journalistic, Persuasive, Biographical, Creative) for Junior High and High School (Chicago and suburbs), ESL Writing for Polish-, Spanish-, Russian-speaking adult students (Triton College, Illinois). I've learned different writing styles and methods, taught even more styles and methods, and enjoyed it all. I've edited resumes, theses, and every paper a student or copywriter ever handed me enjoyed that also. Turnover, by the way, is not a problem. Here's hoping this entry piques your interest enough to give me a call, or write. No matter what, please do keep in touch, shoot over some pages if you need a second set of eyes, and let me know when the book is published Thank you, Chad. Cathy Coates

About

Editing and proofreading your books, blogs, brochures, websites, whitepapers, and more! Your writing documents should reinforce your credibility and your own standards of excellence. Your content must be clearly communicated and letter-perfect or there is a good chance you could be perceived as less than professional. It is all too easy for time-stressed individuals and companies to commit simple errors: incorrect verb tenses, glaring redundancies, unclear pronoun references, and misspelled or incorrectly typed words. You need a perfectionist on your side; a fast, accurate, and detail-oriented Chicago-based editor who can help you fine-tune and polish your writing for maximum impact. From proofreading, copyediting, and rewriting to editorial development and manuscript development, I am that expert.

About

Persnickety and Pedantic Proofreading - the company name says it all. I am thorough, I identify even "minor" imperfections of your writing, and I follow the "letter of the law." Send an attachment of your newsletter, brochure or document/letter, and I'll fax it back to you the following day (more time would be required if there is substantial material), after I have identified grammatical violations, inconsistencies and any unintelligible writing. My rates do not involve greed, which is not allowed! I am proud of my services' affordability. I can supply the names of companies and people who have relied on my proofreading services.
