Co-writing and Editing

Many editing services accept work only above a certain level of literacy. Companion Literacy and Writing Services accepts your writing in any condition of spelling, grammar, vocabulary or structure, and makes it say what you really intend. Your writing/editing companion will:

  • Copyedit and proofread letters, poems, stories, memoirs, articles, essays
  • Draw out the best writing you can do with effective interviewing techniques
  • Hear your ideas with empathy and objectivity
  • Put your voice in the text and tailor the writing for your intended reader
  • Use plain English that is clear, accurate, compact and expressive
  • Apply lateral expansion, logical order, text minimization
  • Colour with angles and metaphors to capture the reader’s imagination
