Writing

You have the ideas, but maybe you don’t have the time, the energy, or the means to best communicate those ideas.

As a word nerd linguist, I enjoy writing about the same topics I translate.

If your area of expertise is in a different field, share your passion with me so that I may convey it to your audience (and I’ll learn about a new topic in the process!).

I provide the following products for businesses and organizations:

  • website copy
  • blog posts
  • product descriptions
  • press releases
  • project reports
  • academic articles
  • artist biographies

I bring creativity to all my writing, but I also enjoy creative writing, from essays to short stories. I am particularly enthusiastic about children’s literature that teaches appreciation for the natural world through poetry.

 

Editing

In projects of passion, we tend to get so close to our work that we become blind to its slightest imperfections. That’s when we need a second set of eyes to spot the extra ‘T’ and the missing space, or bigger gaps in logic or plot.

I provide the following services:

  • Proofreading: cleaning up typographical errors, including spelling, grammar, and punctuation
  • Copy editing: improving upon syntax, rearranging text for better flow
  • Content editing: refining the clarity of the message, proposing alternate phrasing

As a TEFOL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) instructor, I am familiar with the most common errors committed by non-native writers, particularly by Spanish writers. Not only will I identify these mistakes, but if you’d like I can help you learn how to avoid making them again.
