“The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter. ’tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.” Mark Twain


Hi. I'm Joanne Sher, and I would love to help make your next writing project as polished as it can be. But why pick me?

I  have a Bachelor's degree in English and am a former English teacher - but perhaps most importantly, I truly love words, grammar, and the complicated zillion-piece puzzle that is the English language. I will do my best to make your manuscript, no matter how long or short, as polished, clear, understandable, and error-free as possible, while allowing you to keep your own distinct writing style.

I have edited everything from microfiction to devotionals to online course material to novel-length manuscripts. No project is too big or too small. Whether you need a quick proofread or a more in-depth examination of your story arc, or anything in between, I am willing and able to help make your writing shine.I generally charge between 1 and 2 cents a word, depending on the difficulty and extent of the edit. Please contact me if you are interested - I look forward to hearing from you!

Customer feedback:

"Joanne is very good at what she does! I have written and self published two books (so far) and she edited them both. She is very professional and personable in her work. She edited both of my books in a very timely fashion and I absolutely couldn’t be more pleased. I have zero negative things to say about my experience with her work and I will continue to use Joanne in all of my future projects.
If you have a project that needs professional level editing, do not hesitate to contact Joanne. She will do an excellent job for you as she has done for me."
-Paul D Holway, author of Life After and The Shame Identity

"Joanne Sher is a delight to work with. She is quick, efficient, and to the point. I look forward to working with Joanne in the future, and highly recommend her to anyone." 
-Dr. Rita Garcia, author of The Serenity Cove Series

"If it weren’t for Joanne Sher, I wouldn’t be writing today. Her enthusiasm for FaithWriters AND writing inspired me, and her mentorship has been invaluable as I’ve grown from a rough amateur scribbler to published author. She always gives me exactly the level of editing I request—from a simple proofread to a full edit with detailed comments. And Jo is always positive and encouraging. She is the first one I turn to when I need an editor."
- Catrina Bradley, author of devotionals and short stories
