As reporters by trade, we’re seasoned storytellers. Challenge us to write about a topic — any topic — and we’ll deliver words that are as vivid as they are clear, as crisp as they are convincing.
We’re also expert editors, who delight in implementing both structural feedback and line-by-line copyediting. For us, few things are as gratifying as transforming words that are “good enough” into content that dazzles.
The bottom line: We love language so much that we’ve been blogging about it since 2005.
Most writers focus only on the words. Yet what something says can quickly be undermined by how it looks. So we also focus on aesthetics — everything from how long your paragraphs are to the use of headings and a killer headline.
Similarly, most editors simply improve documents. We also teach you how to write better. We want you to understand the reasons for our feedback, so you can employ these new skills in your next project.
Which Type of Editor Do You Need?
When people talk about “editing,” they often mean different things. Here are the definitions we use:
A proofreader corrects typos, grammar, and punctuation, and enforces consistency vis-a-vis an editorial style guide.
An editor does all this, and makes changes for clarity, cogency, and flow.
We specialize in short-form thought leadership. For example:
✔ Blog Posts
✔ Case Studies
✔ Cover Letters
✔ Key Messages
✔ LinkedIn Profiles
✔ News Articles
✔ News Releases
✔ People Profiles
✔ Personal Statements
✔ Product Pages (for Amazon)
