I provide editing services for pieces no matter what the intended audience, whether it’s a personal statement, cover letter, science fiction short story, or mature/graphic material intended for those eighteen or older. I do not have a set upper or lower limit on the number of pages.
Effective business writing allows you to showcase your best self to employers, schools, and colleagues. A well-written personal statement, article, cover letter, and/or résumé distinguishes you as an intelligent professional with a desirable skill set. If you are working on a piece of writing which has a required word or character count, I would prefer that it meets that count when submitted to me. (If you are very close, but not quite able to meet the word count, contact me; I may be able to accomodate you.) My goal is to enhance your writing, but keep it true to you.
As this is a very personal collaborative process, I may get in touch with you to make sure I understand your needs, desires, and direction for the piece. If there is anything you feel I should know when working with your piece, please e-mail me or add a note when you submit it. This will help me ensure that you are satisfied.
