Ashleigh Imus Writing and Editing, Inc.
Ithaca, New York
Nonfiction, business, public policy, social sciences, humanities, and culture. Extensive experience with ESL writers.
When writers understand what is at stake, they can bring their mission, values, and ideas to life for their readers. As a writer and editor specializing in nonfiction, I help individuals, businesses, and organizations discover what's at stake and produce their best writing.
Sometimes you need help finding the crux of your story. Other times you know what matters, but you need help developing it or making sure your audience really gets it; you might need help framing your ideas, making the language and structure clear, or clarifying your style. I help people resolve these challenges in books, white papers, reports, scripts, blogs, and other materials.
My unique offering comes from my training and experience. Having coached hundreds of writers in person, I understand how to find what’s at stake in each individual’s writing. My humanities Ph.D. afforded extensive training in theory and analysis. I see strengths, opportunities, questions, and challenges in writing that others do not. My expertise in numerous languages has brought comprehensive mastery of English grammar and rhetoric. Because I approach language in grammatical and rhetorical terms, I know what works and why; more important, I can explain it in accessible terms to any writer.
