Writing for hire: Give me a subject, Ill give you a document.
Ive written nonfiction features, newsletters, reports, speeches,
and testimony for a wide range of clients.
I charge by the word, by the project, or by the hour.

Coaching: If you need your own personal writing instructor, I can
read your work and help you make it better.
Book or Script Doctoring: If you need less than a ghost-writer
but more than an editor, turn your manuscript over to me and tell me what
Editing: Ill clean up your grammar, reorganize your arguments,
and cut your text to fit any purpose.
Proofreading: Ill check your spelling, correct your punctuation,
find missing words and make any other changes necessary before your manuscript
sees the light of day.
Research and Fact-checking: Let me put my vast network of sources
and my photographic memory to work for you.
In theory, I charge $40/hour for research, editing and proofreading,
and $75/hour for writing, coaching and more sophisticated consulting work.
In practice, the lines between these services blur quickly, so I prefer
to set a flat fee with clients at the beginning of a project. For more
