Janine Harker, Editor


Structural Editing

Structural editing is clarifying or reorganizing a document for content and structure, including making recommendations about large-scale adjustments. 

What this means: I’ll rework your standard operating procedures (SOPs) so frontline operators can easily find the information they need to perform their duties.

Content Writing

Content writing involves creating a new document based on content and research supplied by the client. Additional research may be undertaken, if needed.

 What this means: I’ll research and write SOPs, after-action reports, funding proposals, and other corporate documents to suit your specific purpose and audience. 

Stylistic Editing

Stylistic editing is clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, and smoothing language to ensure a document’s tone and level of complexity suit its intended audience. 

What this means: I’ll rework technical language about a concept, tool, or procedure so that non-technical operators can grasp what they need to do their jobs.

Development of Supporting Materials

Development of supporting materials includes creating new products, or editing existing products, that are designed to supplement a primary document. 

 What this means: I’ll create or enhance PowerPoint presentations, one-pagers, chronologies, speaking points, or other supporting documents for your project.

Copy Editing

Copy editing is editing for grammar, spelling, punctuation, and other mechanics of style to ensure that a document is clear and consistent.

What this means: I’ll make sure your i’s are dotted, your t’s are crossed, and All Of Those Unnecessary Capital Letters are removed from your text.
