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.

Sample projects at Aqua Editing include TED Talks synopses; NGO policy papers; Academic pitches, articles, and books; Startup marketing; Digital learning; Blogs; and Fiction.

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 ghostwriting to developmental editing to copy editing to proofreading to the finishing line: publication.
