English editing, teaching and coaching for writers

This award-winning native English-speaking editor is here to help you make your words sing.

Even the most accomplished authors need help at various stages of the writing process. I offer that help to all levels of writers, from those who know just enough English to get by, to published native English-speaking authors. I offer over a decade of experience as a professional editor, writer, and writer's coach, and I'm happy to tackle projects big or small at reasonable rates.

Services include:

• Basic copyediting, proofreading and polishing of all types of writing, including personal letters, short and long-form journalism, creative writing, ad copy, Web sites, resumes and official documents;
• Stylistic editing and consulting;
• Intensive restructuring and rewriting of all types of English-language texts;
• Writer's coaching, in which I work directly with you to help you realize your writing goals, and to forge your raw ideas, feelings, thoughts, life story and memories into prose that sings;
• Copy writing -- you present your raw ideas to me, and I'll write the text;
• English-writing tutoring and teaching for all levels of proficiency.

I usually do basic editing jobs via email. For more intensive editing and instruction and coaching, I like to use a combination of email, Skype or telephone, and personal meetings, depending on the client's preferences and needs. I can meet with you anywhere in Berlin.

I charge by the project, but my rates are reasonable because I love what I do. I also offer discounts to those in literary or artistic fields. Send me your document or a description of your needs and I'll respond within 24 hours with a proposal and cost estimate.
