Helping you achieve your mission with story

As an admirer of well-written words, I help my clients tell their stories using clear, professional, and grammatically correct language.

I balance preserving the author’s voice with meeting the needs of the reader. Whether I’m writing a grant for a non-profit organization or editing a wide variety of documents and websites, I ensure the wording is suitable for the intended audience and that the final text meets the intended purpose.

Grant Writing Services

Sometimes you are so immersed in delivering your non-profit’s mission that you struggle to clearly articulate who you are, what you do and why you need funding.

As a grant writer, I know how to succinctly tell your story, while following your funder’s specific requirements and evaluation criteria.

Editing Services

Sharing your writing is scary. You may have worked for months or years writing your book. Or you’re building your influence with online content. You want your readers to be focused on what you’re saying and not get distracted by errors.

Anyone can offer a fresh set of eyes on your work, but only an editor has the training and industry knowledge to bring your writing to the professional standard that readers expect and admire.

If your manuscript is substantially complete, now is the time for a round of copyediting and proofreading to make sure it is correct, consistent, and free of embarrassing mistakes. I can help with that.
