Hi, I’m Melanie. I’ll help you create compelling content your audience craves.
I’m an experienced developmental, substantive, and technical editor. I also do proofing if you’re looking for a final set of eyes to catch anything amiss.
Here’s the thing. Writing is inherently vulnerable. Words are personal. I get it. No one wants to have their words changed or rearranged, but pretty much everyone (including editors) can benefit from hiring an editor. Your ideas will be clearer, and your audience will be happier.
When people ask me what I do, I tell them my job is to take someone’s words, keep their voice and ideas, and help them sound even better. My goal in every job is to help you find the best way to convey your message while keeping the “you” intact.
Full transparency: I’m a fan of the Oxford comma. However, I don’t have the club jacket or pay dues, so I’m free to discuss whether that particular piece of drama works with your style.
And here are some rave reviews from people I didn’t pay to be nice to me.
