    Describe the service in one word: Communication. Better communication is my passion and I invest myself in each project with that goal in mind. As an editor it is my job to make the writer look even better and to make sure the point being made is clear. Good communication has a clear purpose, is error free, and is easily readable. I'll help you connect with your target audience (even if it's broad) and deliver your message in a way that it can be clearly received. I provide content that is informative, interesting, and will keep them coming back for more. Don't put the same reused dribble on your prized webpage, let me offer you quality content that will make you stand out. If you're looking for something more personal or creative don't run away yet. In my personal writing I have a flare for creativity and have found a poetic voice. If you have a story to tell I'd love to help you get it out and onto paper. If you have an idea that you want brought to life, I'm excited to hear it. I study communication, writing, and psychology as personal interests and bring immense insight into each of the projects I work on. I look forward to working with you, Josh  less
