When we work together on your book, proposal, newsletter, article, dissertation, correspondence, or other document, I am your partner, not just your contractor. My editing will include informative comments that show you how to save time in the future and explain the concepts behind grammatical and structural changes. My clients love what they learn through our collaboration and receive long-term benefits to their work because of this approach.
When I work with you as your editor, we are collaborators. Together, we make your document the best it can be. Your expertise creates meaningful content and you have a unique voice. My role is to make your message the most effective by helping you tailor it to your audience and context. We'll determine together how I'll help you; I can rework sentences, strengthen arguments, overhaul organization, and more.
Do you need to ensure that you haven't misplaced any commas, left any gerunds dangling, or used "there" where "their" belongs? I can provide a quick, detailed review to catch errors before you distribute your work.
Let's be honest: Microsoft Word is an amazing program with a comprehensive suite of tools you can use to make your document great... but many of those tools are hard to find, hard to use, or hard to understand. I can conquer Word's resistance to doing what you need it to do.
I will help you use Styles to make a document that looks professional and engaging. With Styles, we can streamline your document's formatting, make it a ten-second process to completely change your font and color schemes, create an updatable Table of Contents, and more. I will also troubleshoot for you when Word's tools go sideways and seemingly refuse to be fixed. Your final product will have flexible, attractive formatting you can easily update in the future.
Do you need a concise, informative article to include in your monthly newsletter?
Are you preparing to draft a letter about a politically, socially, or emotionally sensitive topic but don't know where to start?
Can I help you research and write educational materials for your target population?
Whatever the project, we'll talk about your topic, audience, goals, and personal or organizational qualities. I'll write a document tailored to deliver your specific message to your audience.
