As both a writer and an editor, I understand how daunting it can be to send your writing out to be edited. You might be afraid that the editor will alter your words to the point that you no longer recognize them or their intent. I’m here to calm those fears.

When editing your work I will treat it with the utmost care. I believe the relationship between writer and editor should be one of open communication. My goal is to provide you with suggestions to both clarify and develop your own words. My hope is that we can work together so you are both proud and comfortable putting your writing out into the world.

I am available to work on the following:

  • Manuscript Editing
  • Copywriting
  • Proofreading
  • Resume and CV Review
  • Professional Biographies
  • Blog Post Editing
  • Essay Editing
  • Website Copyediting
  • Technical Writing

…and more! Just ask.

Depending on the size and nature of the project, my rates vary. Please get in touch and tell me about your project.


“Ruth came highly recommended and has never disappointed me or our organization. We have had the chance to work together over the past 5 years on various projects and she is always a wealth of knowledge and experience.  She is honest about her work and her time constraints (I always seem to want to “put a rush” on projects!).  Ruth is a true professional in every sense of the word.  She is timely, thorough and thoughtful and always goes above and beyond what I have asked her to do.  Not only is she a consummate professional, she is just an all around great person.  I am honored to be able to work with her and she is the best that you could hope for!”
“Ruth is extremely responsive, with a turn-around time that is to be admired.  She is also an excellent editor — I feel confident that her behind-the-scenes assistance makes my work product accurate and professional.  I would recommend Ruth to anyone!”
