|Quote or Key Phrase||
“Good prose is like a window pane,” wrote George Orwell. As an editor, my goal is to help your meaning shine through.
From creating a document’s framework to the final spotless polish, I work with clients to develop clear, concise, consistent, and carefully considered writing.
With more than 10 years’ experience in writing and editing, I have worked on a variety of non-fiction documents, including newspaper and magazine articles, websites, reports, grant applications, regulatory documents, manuals, academic papers, government and policy documents, resumes, CVs, and marketing collateral. I am more of a generalist than a specialist, and am comfortable working with both technical and narrative styles.
I would love to hear about your project and discuss how we can craft an exceptional final product. I look forward to connecting!
