For more than a decade, Nancy Oates has written entertaining features for newspapers and magazines, as well as produced clear, concise copy for businesses large and small. She has a knack for re-working complex, technical material into straightforward, easy-to-absorb information. She excels in synthesizing information from multiple sources to develop a complete, balanced story. And she also can write nuanced copy that subtly conveys a message to persuade readers to a particular point of view.

Her experience encompasses short and long features, profiles, speeches, awards presentations, newsletters, brochures, Web copy, blogs, advertorials promoting businesses, news releases, accomplishments reports (annual reports without the financials from auditors) and technical marketing pieces.

Nancy Oates has a sharp eye for editing and proofreading, honed from years of editing articles for magazines and newspapers under tight deadlines. She fixes typos and grammar errors and uses exactly the right number of words to fill the space aesthetically. When it comes to editing and proofreading, she is equally nit-picky about time—you pay only for the minutes you use. Having your copy proofread by a professional will give you confidence that the written product you send to clients shows you pay attention to detail.
