Profile

I provide a range of editorial services to ensure your message is clear, concise and compelling. I work with authors, publishers, nonprofits and academics on a variety of subjects and genres. Over 20 years in publishing combined with solid writing and design skills means I can assist you at any stage. 

Whether you want to educate, entertain, persuade, promote or tell a riveting story, whether your project is large or small, I help you make the most of your words. I love language, and I treat your words as carefully as I would my own. 

Clients say: "[Joanne was] patient, insightful and supportive... painstaking in her attention to detail at every stage in the process." 

"Joanne's editing was a remarkably positive experience for me. From the outset, I sensed she was on my side and her edits were always thoughtful, considerate and supportive. After she was done her work, I realized I had a much improved manuscript – and still had my confidence as a writer."
