#YouNeedAnEditor is the hashtag I use for tweets via my business handle, @JoyEhonwa. If you’re not following me there already, please do. I would love to interact with you and see how we can make your writing the best it can be.
What makes me a special editor is not my A1 in English, my eagle eye, or even my Linguistics degree…it’s my soul. I care. And because I care, I am always learning, and I always go the extra mile for my clients.
Editing isn’t just about hacking a writer’s work to pieces. The writer’s feelings matter as much as proper grammar does.
Sometimes a writer uses a word that doesn’t belong in that sentence, and I can tell they just love the word. So I replace it with a more appropriate word, and look out for another opportunity to use it so that they’re happy.
My goal as an editor is not to give you my voice; it’s to make YOUR voice as beautiful as it can be.

Really nice, Ma! I’d be delving into freelance soon. I really would need an editor.
