Welcome to MG's site

Premiere graphic design, copy editing, and proofreading

 

Hello, welcome to MG's. I am a professional copy editor with experience using AP, Chicago Manual, and GPO styles in the Federal government, information technology, marketing, and editorial industries. As a certified writer and graphic designer, I use Adobe Creative Cloud Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator. My mission is to:

  • Provide polished and professional work

  • Always meet deadlines 

  • Incorporate your tone and voice in all pieces

I vow to never use red pen by explaining my edits to make your vision a reality and create eye-catching copy.
