Why Hire an Editor?
The editing process helps you to clarify your thoughts. An editor can be a problem-solver and a critic, working with you to strengthen your ideas. An editor can create form and structure, add depth, and polish expression. In other words, an editor is a facilitator of communication.
Currently, there is a massive influx of authored materials in the market and on the internet. An editor will improve the quality of your prose to set it apart from all the untested, unhoned work out there. Anyone interested in disseminating ideas can benefit.
“You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what’s burning inside you, and we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.”
