Better Content, Creative and Connected.
At Longridge Editors, we help clients with a range of writing and editing projects. Ms. Emily Bennington is one of our long-term colleagues in nonprofit initiatives and special marketing projects, and recently she became a client.
Emily came to Longridge Editors with a common concern. While she is an utter expert with her material, she simply had been looking for too long at the words in a career manual she is writing. Some say familiarity breeds contempt, and while there certainly was no contempt here, there was a problem.
Everyone needs a good editor. Sometimes we get stuck on a repetitive way of expressing something. Sometimes we can get lost in our industry jargon. Depending on how many times around the block you’ve gone with your work, you may simply be unable to “see” it anymore. The mind knows what you meant, and eventually you can no longer identify errors or gaps in a process.
Emily knew she had reached this point in a curriculum development product she is writing collaboratively with other professionals. After a short in-person meeting, Longridge Editors was able to express in writing the core needs of Emily’s project and to create a solution-focused timeline for deliverables that helped leap-frog the work forward. This allowed Emily to stop worrying and do what she does best — help new college graduates successfully enter the workforce, and help employers recruit and retain top talent.
We loved working with Emily. How can we help you do what you do best?
