Freelance Writing

Whether it's a press release, technical manual, or consult on a creative project, my writing reflects exhaustive research and curiosity about my clients' topic and audience.   


Grant Prospecting & Writing

I assist individuals and non-profits by researching and identifying the most compelling sources of funding for specific organizational goals, needs, and capacity.  My services generate superior applications and successful awards for my clients. 

Proofreading / Editing

Every good writer needs a skilled editor.  Fresh eyes produce superior work.  My style leans towards precise language and focus, while retaining the voice and intent of the text. 


College & graduate school application consultation

Nothing distinguishes an application like an outstanding personal essay.  I guide clients in the craft of storytelling.  I help identify the perfect hook, and provide feedback through multiple revisions to produce a tightly edited, coherent narrative.
