Writing & Editing Services

Let me help you say what you want to say. 

Words are how we communicate to others what we find valuable. Whether we’re sending a love note, describing an experience, or selling a product, the unique combination of words we choose allows nuances of meaning to float from writer to reader across time and space.

Everyone has something they’d like to say, but not everyone has the time or talent to articulate their ideas.

Do any of these scenarios describe your situation?

  • You sit down to write and nothing happens.
  • You sit down to write and too much happens.
  • You want to write but can’t find the time.
  • You have something important to share but just can’t get it right.
  • You’re great at speaking your ideas, but when you write them it falls flat.
  • You need original content to fill your website and social media channels.
  • You started a blog to support your business and it sits idle, with a few lonely posts from several years ago.

This is where I come in.

Why? Because:

I’m skilled at writing or editing copy so it sounds like you AT YOUR BEST.
  • I am a perceptive listener.
  • I appreciate detail.
  • I can discern what’s important and what’s not.
  • I am enthusiastic about clear communication.
  • I value using words to connect, not divide.
  • I love writing that informs, uplifts, and enhances lives.

I have extensive experience helping seasoned and new authors write for print and online outlets.

I am especially skilled in understanding and distilling the ideas of spiritual teachers, holistic health practitioners, solopreneurs, gardeners, and artists—creative and thoughtful visionaries who have something to share with the world.

Let me ghostwrite your blog posts; edit your rambling, stream-of-consciousness notes into a powerful article or interview; or organize and edit your first ebook or online workshop.

If you are ready to get your message out there but need some help, contact me at pocketsofstillness@gmail.com.
