Everyone wants what they write to go viral whether they admit it or not. A New Yorker article by Maria Konnikova describes six elements of the writing craft most likely to send your words spinning into the universe, including a positive message, an emotionally arousing subject, a memory trigger and, of course, interesting content.
Need some wordsmithing? QuickEdit, is a virtual team of scribes waiting to assist you with your editing and writing needs immediately. Skilled in different content specialties, styles, and writing niches, and spread across U.S. time zones, we can work with you as nightowls or morning larks. We are your personal business wordsmiths.
Whether you are producing marketing, legal, journalistic, scientific, technical, political, or autobiographic material, we can help. No job is too large or too small.
QuickEdit works with you as technicians, or consultants, or both:
As Technicians, we do small stuff editing: correcting typos, grammatical errors, punctuation slips, and incorrect use of words. We improve sentence structure, idea flow, and cite information contradictions. We address word and style inconsistencies.
As Consultants, we go beyond the small stuff to work with you on key rewrite and reorganization of your materials. We ensure that your website, research report, business plan, brochure, marketing materials, and other documents align with your business or non-profits brand and purpose. We are also happy to draft original content for you or consult (by phone or in person) to help you achieve your writing aims.
Additional services include: Overnight turnaround (depending on amount of work); editing your actual website (versus editing website copy); and hourly and longer-term work contracts.
To work with you, we require computer-based copy of your writing project (which we agree is confidential). We provide you with a Client Work Agreement that cites the scope of work, fees, delivery date, and customer satisfaction guarantee. When the work is complete, you are invoiced and billed through PayPal.
