Do You Have Great Ideas

But Get Bored with Polishing?

(Most people don’t like to polish!)

Are you ready to present your work to the world?

If so, you need a polisher!

Everyone today has the potential to be a publisher. The ability to put your words live online with a simple click is the opportunity to be a publisher in your own right.

The problem? Not everyone has the background (or desire) to be a skilled proofreader or editor. That’s where I come in.

How you present your work and words to the world matters!

From websites, dating profiles, eBooks, blog posts, and marketing materials, sloppy writing can make or break your intended outcome.

Even if you think your work is nearly there, every writer can benefit from a second set of eyes.

I’m a unique proofreader as I bring an edgy/youthful perspective, a background in marketing and small business management, and I actually love the dry, nerdy business of proofreading (there aren’t many of us out there!). 

I offer my services at competitive rates. Read more about me here, or contact me now to receive your quote or purchase my services.

About Me

Non-fiction writing is in my blood. I grew up admiring my grandfather, a successful English professor and respected local journalist. I knew from the 2nd grade that I wanted to be a writer of some sort (I even used to put my hair in a bun and steal his cardigans to dress up as a ‘writer’ when I was lucky enough to spend time with him, but shhh, don’t tell!).

I naturally ended up as an English major in college and absolutely loved the study of linguistics.

Yet it wasn’t until I was in grad school at New York University that it really hit me that I had a marketable skill as a writer.

I’ve been freelancing in one way or another ever since.

As an American who has spent many years living in Europe and Australia I bring to the table a refined knowledge in both types of English, along with an interest in grammar, punctuation, and flow that is hard to come by among the free-spirited professional community. (I have written this site in American English, though have an abundant background in the 1% of differences between American and British/Australian English.)

I am passionate about freelancing as I’ve never been the 9-5 type and would love to sit down on my porch with your manuscript and a coffee on a sunny afternoon and get it ready for the world.

Services

Proofreading

One of the quickest ways to help someone lose interest in what you’re trying to say online is to present sloppy work riddled with typos, spelling errors, and the incorrect use of “your” and “you’re”. Having a second set of eyes that you trust is a great investment, whether you’re looking to prepare your eBook for submittal or get your website live.

I work on an hourly rate and accept some retainer clients as my availability allows. Read more about my rates here.

Editing

Editing is sort of like proofreading on steroids. It involves refinement of your manuscript as a final step, but also collaboration with the writer along the way to format, structure, flesh out, and in some cases, re-write portions of drafts.

Editing is a complex process and every project is unique. As such, I provide custom rates. Please contact me to schedule a 20-minute call to discuss your project’s brief and receive a quote.

Blogging

I LOVE to blog!

I know that a lot of business owners have tons of great intentions when it comes to creating regular content, but the fact of the matter is that at the end of the day, it’s the end of the day, and there are just so many other things that end up taking priority over writing the week’s blog post.

Why not leave it to me? Using an effective method of quick calls, interview questions, and re-purposing your previous content, I’ll smash out posts for you and keep your blog up to date. Read about my blog packages here.

Web Copy

It’s important to remember that your website is not meant to be written for your business, but rather for your audience, which can be hard to do yourself. Oddly enough, it’s typically more effective to have someone on the outside write your web copy for you.

Using a personally-designed method and brief, I’ll make sure that your products and/or services are written about in your intended voice and in a way that leaves visitors ready to get in touch. I’d love to speak with you about your project!
