Writing and Editing Services

You could benefit from my years of writing experience. My work includes articles, handbooks, reports, news releases, grant applications, and more. I have written and edited both as a freelancer and as part of other employment. I write for print media and the Internet. I listen for the sound of sparkling writing, see any errors, and make sense of it all. I write carefully, clearly, and correctly.

For the Internet, I write content that is appealing to visitors, friendly to web searching, rich in keywords, and honed for search engine optimization (SEO). Working with a partner, I can register your domain name; design, host, and update your website; and maximize your website potential with effective search engine marketing.

For examples of my work, see my Citizen Active columns from the Brandon Sun and my websites Live Well, Do Good and Obituary Guide.

Perhaps I could help you with a project of yours? Please feel free to contact me for more information about my writing, editing, and proofreading services.
