You are probably visiting this site because you know you need help. But what's the difference between copyediting and substantive editing? Do you know if you just want proofreading, or do you think you could use document design help?

Here are just a few of the ways I can help you. Contact me by email or at (919) 800-1144 if you have any questions.

Marketing communications

I write text for you. Whether you want an informative newsletter article or a tantalizing email, I can create text that will engage your audience. See more on the samples page.

Substantive editing

I review what you provide for me. In addition to the proofreading and copyediting tasks, I also suggest revisions and reorganization of the text to improve the flow of information or the abilityof the target audience to understand it. See a sample.

Proofreading

I review what you provide for me and check for errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, or word usage.
