Hi! My name is JeanMarie, but I also answer to “JM.” Professionally, a freelance writer and editor, and personally, a poet, you can find me virtually here (comments welcome) or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I can help you with any written word project you have: academic papers, college application essays, business reports, newsletters, books, resumes, and “other.” It’s my job to make your words shine! I also believe that poetry can change the world, one reader or listener at a time; so if you’re interested in poetry and you’re in the Triangle area of North Carolina, I can give you the scoop. Drop me a line and we’ll talk about your latest writing project, poetry, or possibly just the weather. I look forward to hearing from you.
Working with JeanMarie has been an absolute pleasure. In addition to catching the basic mistakes in my work, JeanMarie also offers insightful suggestions for flow and structure. I’m grateful to have her expert eyes on my projects and would highly recommend JeanMarie to others.

I have known JeanMarie for over 2 years now and consistently turn to her for editing on all my projects including essays, poems and a current novel I am working on. Like a surgeon, she has been able to take her keen eye and use it as a scalpel to separate the wheat from the chaff when I get bogged down in the mire of my own wordiness. She can quickly go through any document I present to her and give me clear, concise direction for how to tighten things up with explanation to support all her suggestions. I have come to her in a panic at the eleventh hour and she has always come through for me. She excels at her job, and even when I have bristled and fought over some small change, I usually come around to accepting her wisdom. I am a better writer today as a direct result of her incisive edits. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling to make their writing mean what they are trying to say.
I have written and illustrated a children’s book called The Wakaboomee Adventure yet I’ve struggled to determine what to do next in my efforts to get my book published. Within MINUTES after looking over my book, JeanMarie provided me with an ACTION PLAN and more wisdom that I could have ever imagined! The information JeanMarie provided about catching a publishing company’s eye was truly invaluable! I am so very thankful to have met her – I finally feel confident that my dream of publishing my book will come true.

After many years at the same company I had no idea where to start when it came time to update my resume. JeanMarie helped me turn the jargon and corporate-speak I had into great, relevant bullet points. It’s been a long time since I actively looked for work and she gave me a great primer on what to expect out there. I would recommend her to anyone needing resume help.
JeanMarie’s help with developing my resume was priceless! After so many years of not taking the time to update my resume, I was at a loss as to where to start and how to convey my experience. She not only helped me to create a quality product, she set me up with the information and confidence on how to revise and tweak my resume to fit different job opportunities. I highly recommend using JeanMarie for any and all resume development. You will walk away with an excellent resume, clarity and confidence in what you have to offer and how to best represent it to employers, outline of a cover letter for you to customize, and the ability to manage and update your work in the future. On top of it all, she’s a joy to work with and makes the process straightforward and enjoyable!
