Writing

“Good writing is like a windowpane.” ~
George Orwell

Clear, concise, informative, entertaining, personal. 

All writing imparts information, whether telling a story or instructing how to grow a garden, raise a puppy, or stay healthy during flu season (and some of the most memorable writing combines the two). Whether informing your current and potential customers about your business or product, or keeping clients up to date with your services, I am here to help you with writing:

  • Newsletters
  • Brochures
  • Articles
  • Web content
  • Profiles
  • Company communications
  • Ad copy
  • Blogs
  • Catalog copy 

And have fun in the process! 

Editing

“I have made this letter longer than usual, only because I have not had the time to make it shorter.” ~ Blaise Pascal

Similar to the surgeon’s creed of “get in, get it, get out,” writing is get to your point, make your point, and leave it.  Easy to say; tough to do.  And, yes, time consuming, as the draft is polished and refined into a clean, clear text, and the voice of the author is not only intact, but vibrant and well defined.  An editor brings out the best in a writer, and the reader benefits.

 Editing services include:

  • Proofreading
  • Copyediting
  • Substantive editing
  • Technical editing
  • Assistance with navigating the publishing process, whether working with an agent and publisher or self-publishing. 
  • And so much more

Whether writing or editing, and whether it’s books, articles, reports, brochures, newsletters, website text or marketing materials for corporate clients, publishers, and individuals, my overriding commitment is to preserving and clearly communicating the author’s voice, and my client’s vision and message.
