Let me help polish your writing to a brilliant shine!

My proofreading experience goes all the way back to when I was Head Editor of my high school's literary magazine. A few years after that, I interned at Parkstone International, Paris, where I edited the manuscripts of some of their lovely art books.  

In my subsequent years as a freelance copy editor and proofreader, I've  helped people from various backgrounds and professions give a glow to documents like cover letters, communiqués, articles, screenplays, and fiction and non-fiction manuscripts.

In addition to my freelance work, I'm thrilled to be a part of the Book in a Box team, helping authors create the best versions of their stories!

I put my passion for the written word into every project. I know how hard it can be to create a piece of writing, and I want your work to be its best.  That's why I was thrilled to receive this high praise from author Sally Allen, in the Acknowledgements of her book, Unlocking Worlds: A Reading Companion for Book Lovers:




Here's what some of my other clients have to say:


When I was creating my personal statement essays for graduate school, I was able to benefit from Alysa's exceptional writing and editing skills.  Alysa was able to help me write pieces that were both creative and concise.  She has a natural aptitude for making words come alive on the page, while maintaining strict standards in grammar and punctuation.  Alysa will be a wonderful asset to anyone needing inspiration with their writing, general editing, or technical assistance with the complexities associated with the English language.  I would recommend Alysa's invaluable services to anyone! -Vicki F.

I asked Alysa to read and suggest changes to my latest book. She did so very happily and promptly. I think the corrections she recommended were excellent, in that they helped to enhance what I was trying to say in my work. Her abilities in writing and editing would very much complement any company or organization with needs in these areas. She is very capable and very thorough in what she sets out to do and her work reflects that, and I highly recommend her. - D., author
