Editing Services

Your go-to word maven

As a writing teacher or coach, I pride myself on being clear, knowledgeable, current, kind, inspiring, and I create a safe and accepting environment.

As a prize-winning writer, I offer many years of experience at a variety of genres — including stints as a newspaper reporter and magazine editor — and can draw upon this background to write about just about anything in a fresh, vital way.

And as an editor, I don’t edit with a red pen, either literally or figuratively, but I do know how to help you write what you want to write. I hope you’ll learn from my editing how to do your writing better the next time.
