Writing & Editing Services

You want to captivate your audience. Images do part of the work; words do the rest.

Here’s what you get when you work with me:

  • a strong, self-directed team player who listens to your needs
  • a solid understanding of what your audience wants
  • familiarity with usability and design
  • fair treatment, with clear project pricing
  • clear organization of content for easy navigation
  • engaging messaging about your product, organization or services
  • stories that people want to read and share
  • clean, error-free copy

Grammatically correct. Emotionally strategic. Engaging, inspiring and informative.

Effective.

Let’s go tell your story.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Alex Van Tol on a number of projects over the years. She is very organized, committed to delivering quality work, and goes above and beyond what is expected to ensure her clients are satisfied with the end result. I appreciate how quickly Alex immerses herself in the subject matter, conducting extensive research until she also is an expert on the topic. This saves time and contributes efficiency to the project overall.
