I'ÂÂm a versatile writer and editor with decades of publishing experience. I write and edit all kinds of copy for publications, small businesses, corporations, nonprofits and private customers.
If you need a copy editor, IÃ¢ÂÂm one of the most exacting freelancers you'Âll find. In addition to deftly repairing flaws in grammar, spelling, punctuation and word usage, I untangle twisted syntax, excise superfluous words, and break up run-on sentences. I make sure every syllable and punctuation mark conforms to your stylebook. I tighten and trim copy to specified word counts. On request, I also fact-check and critique copy. A responsive team player, I can edit your regular newsletters and publications, fill in remotely for someone on leave, or offer a hand in a crisis. I edit for magazines, newspapers, newsletters and all manner of corporate communications.
If you'ÂÂre a communications professional for a mental health practice, for-profit corporation or nonprofit advocacy or service organization, I provide a range of services, from writing and editing website copy to sprucing up grant proposals. Maybe you need someone to help you write a blog or a guest opinion, polish a proposed mission statement, finesse a fundraising appeal, or rewrite a contributor'ÂÂs, um, colloquial submission to your in-house publication. Maybe you need someone who can write features for your periodicals or help you come up with clever, attention-grabbing headlines. Consider making me your go-to wordsmith. Just tell me what kind of copy your organization uses and how I might help you produce or refine it.
If you run a small business, I'ÂÂll bet you sometimes wish someone close at hand could turn a phrase. I can write your About page bio and ensure that every word of copy on your website is letter-perfect. You'ÂÂll be delighted to discover how affordable first-rate writing and editing can be.
If you need a friend who writes well, I'ÂÂm right at hand. I write website bios for all sorts of professionals, from artists to lawyers to entrepreneurs. Drawing on years of feature writing experience, I'ÂÂll interview you and write a colorful, engaging profile that you can display in your office or art fair booth, use on your About page and social networking sites, and present to journalists along with announcements of your projects and appearances. I'ÂÂll adapt my offerings to your budget.
