You know the feeling — something was overlooked after all the time you spent on your writing. It happens to the best of us. And reprinting is costly.

I am a freelance copyeditor and proofreader who ensures your writing is in its best condition before publishing (or uploading). Enhancing your writing is my goal, while never changing your “voice” or intention. 

As an executive assistant and marketing coordinator, I worked for some of the top companies in Cleveland. As years passed, people assigned me the go-to person for reviewing their work with “fresh eyes.” In my capacities, I was engaged in the entire process — from initial draft to editing to second-round editing to the last stage — proofreading. (No edits after proofreading.)

In today’s world, you have about six to seven seconds to grab someone’s attention. Your content is critical. Let’s face it –  people are tired and work quickly. They learn about you online before contacting you. Your writing is their first impression, so it must grab their attention and keep their interest. If your writing isn’t professional, you risk losing credibility. So, don’t give them an opportunity to look elsewhere. Grab the reader’s attention while you have it. 

This is true for web content, brochures, displays, handouts, presentations, speeches or scripts – all material should be in its best condition. 

Having a keen eye means reviewing clarity, consistency, format, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure and style. 

Fresh Eyes for a fresh perspective, looking at it for the first time, as a reader would. Call or email me for a free quote.
