Lost for words? I've got a few...

Welcome! My name is Tess, and I'm a passionate wordsmith with more than 20 years of professional experience as a writer and creative editor.

I started out at Miramax Films and have done work for The New York Times, ESPN, NBA, various publishing companies, academic institutions, and many others. I am currently the editor for 7 ongoing published book series and an academic writing advisor for a school admissions consulting company.

Whether you need basic proofreading or someone to tear apart and completely rewrite your text, my interest is in getting the best possible results without sacrificing the author's voice. Keeping things diverse is one of the most important aspects of my job, and I have extensive experience in every genre and style.

My primary areas of specialization are fiction, nonfiction, academic/admissions papers, translations, and texts written by non-native speakers. Let's make some literary magic that will show you how amazing this language can be!

Please note, I am employed as an in-house editor and cannot accept freelance projects at this time due to a very full schedule.
