We’ve all been there. You’ve slaved away at something but it’s still not right. It’s so frustrating when you don’t know how to fix it. And so tempting to give up or settle for second best when you’ve got a million other things to do.
As your editor, my role is to add value to your finished product. I respect the time and effort that has already gone into your writing – and want to make sure it doesn’t go to waste. You can choose a level of editing and proofreading service that suits your needs:
Remember: there are two typos of people in this world – those who can edit and those who can’t. (I can think of a few more but nice quote anyway thanks, Jarod Kintz.) Poor structure dilutes meaning; spelling mistakes are annoying and costly if you have to re-print. When what you say counts, working with a professional editor is always a good idea.
We had tried unsuccessfully for nearly a year to articulate what we did and why we did it. After a single meeting with Britt, she managed to turn our document into a sharp, articulate and accurate reflection of our work. Our Director, Board and staff were all thrilled with the product.
I've known Britt since she started in PR, when she was easily the best comms person I had ever worked with. When I asked her to rewrite our company capability statement, she nailed it first go. I would have no qualms about using Miss Word for any copywriting assignments.
It was great to see the content come together and the strong theme you provided.
Britt has an exceptional ability to listen actively and then articulate in writing exactly what she has heard. She’s deadline driven and has an eye for detail - two things I find critically important when working with a writer.
Thank you for the fine work and effort you put into editing our discussion paper. The composition of the executive summary was exemplary and demonstrated that you had really engaged with the multi-disciplinary nature of the piece. My actual favourite input was the way you synthesised our work in the summaries – I was quite proud when I read them. I also wanted to thank you for meeting a very tight timeline with such professionalism.
What I appreciate most is Britt's ability to just 'get us'. Working with her is always seamless and hassle-free. I have recommended her to many of my colleagues at State Library of Queensland and everyone who has worked with Britt has had the same experience. Aside from that, her writing is fantastic and she's just a treasure.
