"The work was like peeling an onion.  The outer skin came off with difficulty . . . but in no time you'd be down to its innards, tears streaming from your eyes as more and more beautiful reductions became possible."

Edward Blishen, British author.

If your existing project needs an objective eye, gentle wordsmithing, or extra zip, my red pen is at your disposal.  Let me finesse your thoughts into engaging discussions to effectively communicate your message. 

I will review your words with an objective, critical eye for grammar, flow, and message. I also can cosmetically format your material with your audience in mind to ensure your documentation is readable and visually interesting.

My rates are flexible based upon the complexity – or simplicity – of the assignment.  The following editing services are available.

  • Proofreading:  Grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
  • Editing:  Proofreading plus content flow and alternative verbiage suggestions.
  • Re-writing:  Creating new or alternative sentences and/or paragraphs.
  • Formatting:  Emphasis on aesthetics.
