Copy Writing and Editing
Have a pesky proposal that needs to be written? Or a press release or website copy? Let me help you out. Or, if your copy already exists, it may need some review. Different projects need different levels of editing. Sometimes a client wants me to review for accuracy and ease of reading; other times a more comprehensive, structural edit is in order. I've written and edited textbooks, dissertations, marketing copy, product descriptions, case statments and proposals.
Ghostwriting is the miraculous process in which I extract a story from your head. Most of the time, this work is longform, like a memoir or book. While I do the heavy lifting, ghostwriting will still require a fair amount of your time in interviewing and reviewing. We will definitely be on each other's Christmas card lists at the end of the process. I have ghostwritten company yearbooks, annual reports, memoirs, self-help books, and the occasional coverletter.
Sometimes, a project can be large and hairy enough to need a project manager. This point person can help tame and guide this project into successful completion. This services is especially helpful for endeavors like large grant proposals, the development of new programs, or acting as a company historian. I have experience with national, private, and government funding organizations as well as an aptitude and facility with interdepartmental and B2B relations.
How we can work together.
As a writer, I'm somewhat unique: I actually like people! And I love to manage larger projects, whether program development or company-wide information gathering. I bring these skill sets to every contract. Additionally, I make great espresso, charming scientific small talk, and a decent running partner.
