"The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between
lightning and a lightning bug." - Mark Twain

Philosophical Editing

Working together, we create a cohesive framework for your writing to advance a clear, sophisticated, and penetrating argument or presentation. We fill in that framework with effective, vibrant language. We also examine the underlying assumptions of your line of reasoning, using the Socratic method of question and answer. The goal is to develop subtlety, strength, and depth in your writing.

My philosophical editing techniques are applicable to all sizes and forms of writing, including letters and correspondence, fiction (short stories, novels, plays, poetry), and scholarly projects.

Editing and writing consultations may be done in person, by telephone, or email.
