West Coast Editorial Associates can write what you need, edit what you’ve written, or train you and your staff to write and edit more effectively. We can look after the words in your life by managing your entire project or by handling a single aspect of it.

Editing

Whatever level of editing you need, we have the partner or the team to get the job done.

Writing

Whether your material is long or short, technical or general, we can research, write, or rewrite it.

Training

If your staff needs a refresher, we offer workshops and coaching in writing and editing.

“Thanks for your work on Peace, Love & Fibre. I was so happy with the copyedit, and Mairlyn Smith [the author] told me she just felt so lucky to have someone asking these questions now rather than after publication!
