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 a 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 statements, and proposals.
Do you have expertise in your field, but no writing know-how? 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 have each other on speed dial/email at the end of the process. I have ghostwritten company yearbooks, annual reports, memoirs, self-help books, and the occasional cover letter.
Do you have a story trapped inside you? Sometimes it's a story only you can tell. Let's make the world a better place and bring that story into the light of day. Trust me: we can do this. I coach nonprofessional writers in blogging, essays, and first-time books. I also help professional writers overcome the dreaded writer's block, ennui, and/or stale copy. This service combines project management, structure shaping, and motivation exercises.
How we can work together.
Don't let your story go untold. Let me help you craft your story and find your audience.
Are you staring down the barrel of an unruly venture without knowing where to begin? As a project manager, I help tame and guide complex projects into successful completion. This service is especially helpful for endeavors like large grant proposals, the development of new programs, or acting as a company historian. I help guide organizations through mission creation, re-branding, and strategic planning discussions. I have experience with national, private, and government funding organizations as well as an aptitude and facility with interdepartmental and B2B relations.
