Editing and publication management

There are times when what you may really need is an editor who can help you really say what you want to say or get a publication project done in a way that brings your positive future closer to now! More than a few of the 1,500 writers I have worked with have thanked me for "getting into their heads" and helping them say what they wanted to say.

Ned Hamson:

I will accept assignments with groups, individuals, issues, and products/services, which I can personally support.
