Writing Services

I specialize in theme-driven prose, snappy verbs, and audience-targeted writing. I enjoy interviewing scientists and translating their significant work into layperson terms.  As you can tell from my blog, I love to write about birds, wildlife, native plant gardening, wilderness, wild rivers, climate change, sustainability, and ultimately–hope for our planet.

Thank you for considering my writing services for websites, blogs, interpretive panels, brochures, reports, articles, essays, opinion, and more.

Editing Services

As a longtime writer, I’ve always valued kind editors who shape, guide, critique, eliminate wordiness, and retain my voice and style.  That’s my intent as well. I’ll edit all kinds of writing, from flash fiction to book-length manuscripts. The key is to make sure we are a good match.

Marina asks questions that help me clarify what my intentions are. She offers “better” verbs and phrases that make the work come alive. As a new writer, I feel as if I am not only perfecting individual essays but, at the same time, learning the craft of writing. ” – Nova Loverro
