Content and Commas
A picture may be worth a thousand words but a thousand pictures can also be painted with just a few words. Your website, brand or message should be painted with the brush of your choosing. My versatile writing — honed as a journalist at national publications since 2003 — accommodates different styles including corporate, casual or even quirky.
I have years of experience in crafting copy for:
search engine optimized (SEO) articles
brochures and pamphlets
media kit content
internal and external communication memos
cover letters and resumes
With each of these areas, I understand the perfect word length to get the message across and will ensure you’re part of my creative process, if that’s your preference. I’m also perfectly confident in crafting your content independently, if yours is a hands-off approach.
Yes, the placement of that comma you are unsure about matters — as do other grammatical rules, spelling, typos, sentence structure, word usage and the general flow of your content. I pride myself on subtle edits, rather than ones that cut out or change entire areas of content and inevitably cause you to lose your unique voice. In editing, I also take into consideration word count, paragraph structure, style guides, and search engine optimization if needed. My editing skills have been refined at publications such as The Globe and Mail, StarMetro Media and on three Amazon bestselling books.
I am well versed in editing:
newspaper and magazine articles
business plans and reports
pamphlets and brochures
I am equipped to help you get ready for publication, whether your content needs developmental editing (in which I help shape the content as you write), heavy editing (paragraph shifts and plot suggestions), or copy editing (grammar, spelling, consistency, flow, conciseness, proper tense, tone and fact checking). My work is proof of my ability to ensure your content is reader-friendly and free of errors.
