A good editor knows how to listen to a writer, find the magic in their message, and make tweaks and suggestions that ensure their writing sounds exactly like THEM...

but better!  

 

And that's exactly what I do for my clients.  

 

You focus on writing from the heart, on actually getting words down on the page, and forget about spelling and sentence structure - because that can be a total creativity killer.  

Just let your words flow, and let me worry about the rest - it's so much more fun that way!


 

‘Knowing how attached writers can be to their words is one of the things that makes Jo so good. She was thoughtful in her editing and helped me see how a few simple changes could make all the difference to my work.
Her work is hugely intuitive, and she has a talent for taking something that is very precious to you and just making it sound like you, but better’
— Cora Darlington - Life Coach

WHO DO I WORK BEST WITH?

My favourite clients are heart-led female coaches & creatives who are passionate about helping other people live a beautiful life.  I LOVE anything to do with life after 40, personal development, mindfulness, creativity, journaling, health & wellbeing, feminism, and am crazy about animals - so, anything involving those areas gets me super-excited!  And, being super-excited about your project means I'll be your cheerleader as well as editor - because life is better when we celebrate and support each other.

  • Articles

  • Newsletters

  • Opt-ins

  • Ebooks

WHAT DOES EDITING INVOLVE?

As your editor I'll:

  • check for basic spelling and grammar mistakes* 

  • ensure that your work flows properly and is easy to read

  • make any writing suggestions or changes necessary so that your piece is the best version of your work it can be

  • check for consistency of voice and style throughout, so that it sounds like you (but better)

  • ensure that your writing is easy to read and gets your message across clearly and powerfully 

*Just a quick heads up for you: editing and proofreading are different skills, so for manuscripts I recommend using a proofreader once all the editing is completed, and before publishing. 


When we work together my priority is to help you get YOUR VOICE and YOUR WRITING out into the world.  I’m not a ghost writer, so please don’t ask me to write something for you.

Website Editing

If you've got an online business, then you know how important it is to make a great first impression.  And honestly, nothing says unprofessional more than spelling mistakes and bad grammar - ‘their’, ‘there’ or ‘they’re’ anyone! 

Whether it's a blog post, web page, or opt-in, you want to make sure it's as perfect as possible, so that you can relax and get on with what you do best.  But, what do you do if punctuation, spelling and writing aren't really your thing?   

It's okay.  Take a deep breath.  I hear you. 

Here's what you need to do:

Make a cuppa, put your feet up, and let me take care of it for you. 

Seriously, let me... I actually LOVE doing it!  Yep, as a total word-nerd I'd love to help you make sure that your writing is a pleasure for others to read, without any spelling mistakes or obvious grammar issues, and that you are getting your message across clearly.

Books

So, you've put together your Ebook or finally completed a first draft, and now you're busy stressing about punctuation, spelling, and whether it reads the way you want it too.  Frankly, you’re wondering if it even makes sense anymore or if you should just chuck it in the bin! We all feel like this after writing, believe me. When you’ve been deep in creating something it can be hard to look at it objectively.

That’s what I’m here for. You can send me the entire manuscript or just one chapter, it’s up to you. I’ll look over your writing and make tweaks and suggestions to help you make sure it’s the best it can be.

All you need to do is head over here to tell me more about your book and get your free quote.
