What We Do

Writing

Not everyone has the time, energy, or skill to create the content needed to support a business. We will write it for you! Whether it's a blog post, web page, client handout, press release, or simply an email, we have experience crafting copy that delivers. 

We have particular expertise in the following fields:

  • Pet training and behavior
  • Pet care and husbandry
  • Human and veterinary medicine
  • Science for the lay audience

More importantly, we excel at learning about your subject matter and translating it for the audience you need to reach. Unless your field is highly technical or incredibly obscure, we can write what you need. 

Line Editing

If you've written something that needs a bit of fine-tuning, we can help with that. Our editor has done line editing for hundreds of books, articles, web pages, brochures, and other marketing materials for a range of audiences on numerous topics.

Copy Editing

If you've reached the final stages of the writing process and just need someone to make sure everything is pristine, copy editing is what you seek. We will quickly master your style rules and apply them uniformly to your work, while catching any small mistakes that might have slipped through the cracks. 

Coaching

If you struggle to write effectively, we provide coaching over email, phone, or Skype. We will also do in-person coaching within 10 miles of West Philadelphia. Before starting a coaching session, we will ask for a few samples of your work and a list of the kinds of content you most often need to write.

Coaching is available for anyone high-school-aged or older. It's never too late to learn!
