You should know that I'm an editing nut.

From pinpointing simple typos to offering thoughts and suggestions as you flesh out your ideas, I want to help you create the best final product, large or small, that you are capable of creating.

I've edited:

  • Resumes
  • Personal statements
  • Blog posts
  • Websites
  • Essays
  • Brochures
  • Magazines
  • Book manuscripts

Basically, if it's got words, I'm in. And did I mention I'm an unabashed spelling/grammar nerd?

Here's what I don't do: Write the piece for you. 

But I'm eager to be an energetic and helpful conversation partner in the process, and excited to provide a sharp second eye so that you can make your work even better.

Contact me for rates and info, and let's get to work!

Hear from some of my clients:

Claire’s kind suggestions and close attention to organization on my personal statement for graduate school were very helpful. With her experience, she helped me present myself in the best and most concise way to the admissions committees. Her editing made me feel confident and competitive when applying to graduate school. I will begin my program next week and cannot thank her enough for helping me achieve this life goal.

Claire is a true editing genius! She helped me brainstorm ideas for a personal statement I wrote for my medical residency application and then went through the paper line-by-line for detailed grammatical and sentence-level corrections. She has a gift for crafting sentences and dug through the nitty-gritty of my paper to transform it. She was the single most helpful editor who I had read my personal statement, and I could not recommend her enough.

As an editor, Claire has a keen eye, paired with a lovely ability to ask questions and with evident care to lead the writer to discover ways to say things in better ways. She has helped me to write more clearly, vividly, and in a less cluttered way.

Claire’s commitment to my manuscript helped usher the novel into print. She is a truly gifted editor who can magnify the writer’s own voice by paying astute attention to the details with an eye toward the whole, such as noting inconsistencies in theme, tone, and metaphor. Most of all she asked the right questions of my text, which encouraged and validated my vision for the book. I recommend Claire highly!
