Expert Editor, Writer and Publication Designer for Print and Online
I provide copy editing, line editing and proof reading services and publication design services for print and online publishing across a broad spectrum of media from small ephemera to magazines, newspapers, books, E pubs, display advertising and more.
I also research, write, edit and design newsletters for business and nonprofit clients. Some newsletter clients ask me to do all of that, others just copy editing and design/layout.
Additionally, I offer complete image-editing services for print and online publication.
I rely chiefly on Adobe's InDesign, Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator and Acrobat, all of which I have used since each application was introduced, before which I used their predecessors, when there were predecessors, such as Quark Express.
As a longtime newspaper publisher, editor and reporter, I am committed to economy of statement, respect for the standards of the style guides as well as the writer's style and accuracy, all coupled with practical design values that emphasize ease of entry into the subject at hand.
Over many years, I have been honored with many national and regional awards from my peers for what they found to be the excellence of my writing, editing, design and photographic skills.
