Find out the reason that commands you to write;
see whether it has spread its roots into the very depth of your heart;
confess to yourself you would have to die if you were forbidden to write.
— Rainer Maria Rilke
Hello! My name is Marissa Byfield, and writing is both my passion and my profession.
Clear, polished, and consistent writing is achievable through editing.
An experienced and knowledgeable editor makes all the difference in taking your work from first draft to full-fledged publishable material. Whether your document is a 100-page manuscript or a one-page memorandum, editing is an essential part of the professional writing process.
I offer a variety of editing services including basic copy (line) editing, final proofreading and revision, and one-on-one consultations with in-depth critique.
