I create content that works for you.
If you’re looking for well-told stories, in-depth research, creative approaches, clear ideas, persuasive arguments, polished prose, and an advocate for your passion, I would love to work with you.
If your readers are hungry for ideas to engage their minds, activate their emotions, and inspire action, I want to write for you.
I help writers, businesses, and educators find their voice, tell their stories, and reach big audiences. I believe writing gives voice to our ideas and helps us discover new ones. Whether you’re hoping to boost your online presence and client base, publish your book, sell your product, improve your craft, or share your expertise, I create content that is authentically yours. No recycled ideas. No click-bait.
Let’s create something that connects, explores, helps, challenges, stretches, and travels far.
“All I know is what I have words for.” -Wittgenstein
From your topic, project parameters, target audience, research needs, and desired tone, I write your book, white paper, case study, curriculum, manual, review, proposal, profile, letter, press release, or web copy.
We collaborate as much as you need, discussing organization, length, style, and publishing goals. I work on revision and edits until the job is perfect. When the project is finished, full copyright and ownership of the text is yours.
Talk-to-Write Content Creation
Do you have an idea or story that you’d love to talk into life?
We talk so you can express your ideas and dictate your content. An attuned listener and seasoned interviewer, I love hearing your voice, absorbing your ideas, and learning your style. I render your thoughts into organized, accessible, and coherent prose.
We find the right genre, shape, length, and publication venue, then collaborate on revisions and edits until the project fits your vision.
Send me your draft, whether new, emerging, or something you’ve been working on for ages. I offer a discerning eye, editorial screening experience, audience awareness, generosity, and your authentic voice as my priority.
Developmental feedback can include substantive comments about your central argument, main ideas, theme, sources, reader value, plot, characters, structure, coherence, pacing, stakes, imagery, or voice.
Copyediting and proofreading focus on clarity, sentence structure, style, concision, consistency, organization, dialogue, formatting, grammar, and punctuation.
