Aqua means blue green--the color of a wave before it breaks--and the feeling of clarity and vitality. 

Aqua Editing is a story developer for creative thinkers.

Samples of writing projects at Aqua Editing include policy papers for educational NGOs, academic books, green energy and tech startup marketing, digital learning courses, short fiction,  graduate school essays, and personal statements.

Aqua Editing loves writing projects at any stage! I jump into your story, wherever you are in the creative process.

I work with stories from idea conception to outlining story needs to structuring content to developmental editing to copy editing to proofreading to the finishing line: publication.

Every piece of writing has a story.
I find yours and tell it. 

Who am I?
