Maybe you’re working on an essay that isn’t quite coming together, but you can’t figure out why. Maybe you’re writing a piece of fiction and need a sounding board for plot or character development. Or maybe you’re launching a website for your business and want to make sure you’re connecting with your target audience. Whatever kind of writing you’re working on—from college papers to novels, screenplays to digital content—I can help!
I'm passionate about helping my clients communicate their ideas in the clearest and most effective way possible while remaining true to their unique voice. My primary goal is to help you bring to life the argument, story, or message you’ve envisioned in your head and, in the process, grow more confident in your own writing abilities. To this end, I offer detailed suggestions to strengthen your writing, focused around one or more of the following tiers:
Developmental/ Substantive Editing
This is the option I recommend for new clients or anyone in the early stages of a project, especially if you are looking for big-picture feedback (i.e. notes on content, structure, and development) and are willing to do substantial revising in order to improve your work.
Line and Copy Editing
I recommend this option if you are already happy with the ideas and organization of your piece but want to work on fluidity and coherence at the sentence- and paragraph-level.
Mechanical Editing/ Proofreading
I recommend this tier only if you are fully satisfied with your work and want to make sure it doesn’t contain any spelling or grammatical errors before you present it to your audience. This is a great option for anyone working on professional materials, business copy, and/or digital content.
Please note: If you are a student writing an essay for school credit, I will not correct your errors for you; rather, I will identify them and explain why and how they should be fixed so you understand what to do moving forward.
