Copywriting + Editing


Let's make your ideas sparkle on the page.

You know more about your business or organization than anyone else. That's why you need a writer who will work closely with you to learn all about what you do—and all the technical jargon involved. Then, we can use your ideas to tell that story together.

Content Editing

The pieces are there. They just need to be put together.

Have you been staring at that same screen full of text for an hour, unsure of where to take it next? We've all been there. Pass the baton to me and I'll make sure your story gets where it needs to go.

Line Editing

The "there, their, or they're" bit.

Grammar! It's the least fun part of this writing stuff, right? That's why you bring in a pro to go over your brochure or annual report with a fine-tooth comb. 

Fill in the Blank

Your project may vary. Because every project does.

Do you have a writing or editing project that doesn't fall neatly into one of these categories? That's great! They rarely do, if we're being honest. Drop me a line in the form below to tell me the details, and then we can come up with a game plan.
