Have you written something that you've worked hard on but feel is not quite there yet? As an experienced editor and widely published, award-winning writer (I've published articles in many magazines and newspapers, poetry in over 75 literary journals, seven poetry books, and one collection of short stories), I can help you polish your writing so that it expresses clearly and powerfully what you want it to say. Your writing will express your truth in a compelling, heartfelt way after we work together. I've edited memoir writing, nonfiction, fiction, and poetry, as well as website text, academic writing, admission essays for college or graduate school, etc.
I offer reasonable rates. My website: www.ralphdranow.net will give you testimonials from my editing clients. Here are some samples: "Because of Ralph's writing and editing assistance with my essays, I got into a top Ivy league school, which is among the top five programs in the country for my major, urban planning. "
"Ralph Dranow showed me great compassion while providing expedient and thorough editing for my memoir.. Thank you for making my writing shine!"
