I'm a freelance writer and editor, a learning and development professional, a published author, and a word nerd. I've worked for financial and marketing firms as an instructor, technical writer, and instructional designer. I've written nearly a hundred newspaper columns and features as a journalist and stringer.
I'm a board member at The Writers' Loft, a nonprofit writing center in Sherborn, Mass., where I run critique groups, write the monthly newsletter, help set the Loft's strategy, and administer the website and blog. I love working with both established and pre-published authors!
My freelance writing and editing specialities include:
Copy editing, line editing, and developmental editing for novels, short stories, and non-fiction work
Brochures and marketing materials
Newspaper articles and features
Query letters, synopses, and agent submission packages for novelists
Training and classroom materials
Course assessments and evaluations
Real estate marketing materials
Resumes and cover letters
I'm an expert in the Microsoft Office suite and Scrivener and will work with documents in any other format. I especially love genre projects, especially science fiction, fantasy, mystery, thrillers, and horror.
I'll quote work by the project, the hour, or the page, and go with whatever is cheaper for you. Have a small job? If you need a query letter, short story, or marketing material edited, I can turn those around in 24 hours.
Find the right partner to trust with your work and your words. Contact Dave (me!) for more information. Thank you!
