Let's Talk

Hello, I'm Marie and I love to work with words. Whether you need a light edit to correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar, or heavier wordsmithing to better engage the reader and get your point across, I'm here to help. I also provide consultation services for authors seeking developmental editing, manuscript evaluation, or guidance about the publishing process. 

My fees are affordable and based on the type of service and turnaround time. Past and current clients include self-publishing authors, hybrid/independent publishers, nonprofit organizations, university faculty, students, and small businesses. I've edited fiction and nonfiction books, academic papers, newsletters, newspaper columns, theses and dissertations, admissions essays, letters of recommendation, research proposals, press releases, project reports, and resumes. I have experience using the major style guides: APA, CMS, AP, MLA, AMA, and AAA. 


Some people aren't sure what kind of editing assistance they need. Feel free to contact me to discuss your project and clarify the kinds of support that will help achieve your goals.

of Christ's crucifiction near the duck pond.
