Writing & editing expertise

My focus has been on works in academia, the non-profit sector, and on book-length nonfiction projects. I've authored or edited material anywhere from a few dozen paragraphs to a few hundred pages; as non-profit communications director I've produced a full range of outward-facing text and graphics for funders, grant managers, news media, and community stakeholders – for print and digital media.

SPEECHES

Rates

  Rates are hourly: editing pace depends on the nature of the material, but averages between 4-6 pages per hour.

 

  Estimates are refined: we'll dialog following the first round of edits and fine-tune the balance of pace, cost, and attention to detail.

Process

  Our initial exploratory meeting is always free.

  A free sample edit of a few of your pages helps me refine my estimate; you can review it first to confirm I'm a good fit.

  You may also request:

    • examples of my work,
    • references to contact, and/or
    • a standard copyediting test (about which, a bit more here)

  Respect for your integrity and that of your work is paramount: my aim is to clarify, not alter your voice, and to ensure you're delighted with the finished product.
