Proposal Editing

Why Use a Proposal Editor?

Proposal editing for grammar, style, punctuation, clarity, consistency, audience, and tone distinguishes the winning bids from the “almost made it” bids. Proposal evaluators value attention to detail, and a carefully edited proposal elevates your solution and demonstrates commitment to quality.

Services

I offer proposal editing at competitive rates. My services include proofreading, copy editing, developmental editing, RFP compliance checks, style sheet creation, and reference formatting.

Experience

I have been editing proposals for six years, with a proven track record of wins. I also hold a Poynter ACES Certificate in Editing (Poynter Institute; ACES: The Society for Editing) and have a master’s degree in writing. I bring proven experience in editing your proposal for clarity, consistency, grammar, and compliance. At multiple companies, I have produced, edited, and formatted effective proposals for federal, state, and local clients. I am experienced in analyzing requests for proposals (RFPs) for requirements, client needs, and win themes. I also have experience in editing content from diverse and dispersed contributors into “one-voice,” internally consistent, effective documents.
