I can help you with:

  • writing—articles, web content, grant narratives, how-to guides, pamphlets, catalogs, directories, etc.
  • ghost writing—anything you need written with you or your organization as the author (except original academic work)
  • grant writing/marketing materials
  • copyediting at all levels
  • developmental editing
  • proofreading
  • developing a uniform style guide
  • guidance and coaching for those producing original academic work
  • fact checking
  • transcribing and more

(Unless you need a witty limerick, thoughtful haiku, or Onion-worthy satire, I do not write fiction.)

Not sure what level of editing you need?  We can figure that out together through a consultation


Because I enjoy working with individuals, not-for-profits, small businesses, and other organizations who are necessarily budget-conscious, my rates always stay within the industry-standard range. In addition to working by the hour or word, I am happy to propose a set project fee. Unless the scope of work changes drastically during our work together, I pledge to complete your project for the rate we agree upon.

To determine project estimates, I consider the time I feel your project will take to complete most effectively (based on my experience with similar projects) and the following fee structure for my expertise.
