As an editor, writer and co-writer, I relate wholeheartedly to this pithy quote by Stephen King: “To write is human, to edit is divine.” So thank you for staying here to consider my professional services for your project. There are three ways we can do this:
You can let me do the structural and copy editing of your writing. My clients are often surprised at how much better the narrative logic moves story forward and every sentence along the way sings with meaning, depth and resonance.
You can let me do the writing for you. My clients have found my style of writing clear, concise and compelling. That’s because I always begin by getting clear, precise and insightful in my thinking.
Or you and I can work together as co-writers on your project. My clients have found this collaborative-writing approach incredibly helpful (and even inspiring) for getting the work done on message, on time and on budget.
As a professional structural+copy editor, copywriter and qualified educator, I bring the 4Cs into every working relationship — Critical Thinking, Effective Communication, Constructive Collaboration and Refreshing Creativity — throughout our journey from first draft to final draft.
Perhaps my key point of difference from my fellow editors out there is that last C — Creativity.
As a copywriter, art director and creative director from the advertising industry (1981 – 2003), I am very ideas-driven, both textually and visually. This enables me to be a very effective problem solver in the articulation of thoughts, messages and narratives.
All my clients love the collaborative writing approach for two reasons: it is a remarkably effective way to produce quality content and it is a very enjoyable way of working with an editor/copywriter.
