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 TED Talks synopses, policy papers for NGOs, academic books and pitches, green energy and tech startup marketing, digital learning courses, and fiction manuscripts.

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.
