Every writer needs an editor. Many of the most successful writers have several editors through different stages of publication. We all need critical help.
- An editor helps you succeed by improving the quality of your written work, so that your expertise is unmistakable.
Preparing you to succeed, whatever your goal, suggesting and advising appropriate strategies and direction, organizing and tailoring your words to your purpose, assuring that your work, whatever form it takes, has a professional patina, as well as words that reflect your significant substance: This is my work. It is the work of an expert.
- An editor helps you understand how your audience may react to your written words, which can be the difference between success and failure, by providing you with a third-party’s critical eye and a thoughtful ear.
Approvals and acceptances don’t just happen. They are the product of appropriate choices, much thoughtful research and preparation prior to the first draft. Whether for an accreditation report, a thesis, a journal article, a personal statement for an application for graduate school, a scholarship, an award or a professional speech, a fresh, critical editor’s eye may be the crucial difference between success and failure. I will work with you, as needed, to develop effective approaches for your applications, reports, documents, writing.
- An editor helps you prosper by making your writing more professional.
Clarity of thought, well organized structure, polished words and form are a winning combination. If your writing is not well organized, if the sentences require rereading to understand, if punctuation and spelling errors distract your reader, your chances of success are diminished.
I am a professional word worker. I have been writing, publishing and editing since I was young. I have been a member of law graduate faculties, been on accreditation report teams and written accreditation reports. I taught writing for many years. My resume includes many different kinds of writing, ranging from academic to blogging. I have advised, supervised, edited and proofread for students, faculty and others. I do many different kinds of work with words. And, I enjoy the work.
If you want your expertise to be unmistakable, if you want your audience to react in the way you expected them to react, or you just want to be perceived as the professional you are, please contact me and we can talk about your needs, the way I work and my negotiated pricing.
