Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Web Content - Marketing Collateral - Blogs - Whitepapers - Grant Proposals & Business Plans - Dissertations - Scientific and Technical Papers - Book Manuscripts I bring together wide and deep experience in both editing and writing, which are really on a continuum with straight-up copyediting at one end and 100% original researched text on the other. Most projects I do fall somewhere in between, working with my client as collaborator. I can help you shape what you need said. Besides being a master of English grammar, syntax, and style, I am literate in IT, clean energy, biotechnology, medicine, law, political economy, and other technical fields. And now, working with my partners, I can also create a campaign on Facebook for you. NOTE: I have long and wide experience editing academic dissertations and theses as long as the ideas and arguments are the student's own and they're doing their own research. What I *won't* do is ghostwrite papers for students. I'm a former professor, and I believe that having someone else write your paper is unethical as well as a betrayal of your own education. Writing and Information Design: Whether it's copy or content you need, I can rewrite text you already have, I can build on your outline or storyboard, or I can work from your personal or company information assets to create something entirely new based on an analysis of your needs and employing the right keywords. In my decades as a journeyman professional writer, I've learned the rules and conventions of multiple genres, and I can match the tone and style you require. When I'm not doing this, I'm a widely published poet, and with my knack for compression and vivid metaphor I can make taglines and slogans snap. Editing: I can spruce up your text with a light touch, I can take it apart and put it back together--or anything in between. I have a technical background, I've worked with a lot of scientists and engineers, and I can help you convey your information clearly and concisely, whether it's a report, a whitepaper, or copy for your b2b website. But I also taught fiction and creative nonfiction writing for two decades--former students of mine have books out with major publishers--and I can help you tell a story too, whether it's a memoir or a novel. Branding: Whether you're a startup and want brand positioning help or are looking to rebrand because your business has evolved, I can work with you to shape your brand image--the look and feel of your brand, verbally and graphically. We'll get it done for you. Bottom line: I'm a quick study with a huge knowledge base, and I can write and/or edit to your specifications with clarity, accuracy, and grace--quickly, reliably, and at reasonable rates.

My book would be nowhere close to publication quality as it is now without Adam (Precision English). He has been thorough in editing and necessary for development of it. Not afraid to tell me when my logic needs adjustment or expanding on. For whatever your work, Adam is the editor you need!
