Four-Week Writing Consultation
ABW offers its clients a simple, most helpful approach to business writing: You submit actual work projects as you
wish: correspondence, memos, reports, proposals, presentations. I edit them and annotate the revisions. You receive
professional editorial assistance that has immediate value and use in your work.
Please take a few minutes to look over the Prospectus at the ABW site and contact me with any questions.
✓Please fill out the application form online. I will use the information to contact you about your schedule and
✓Based on the information above, I will propose a start date and fee. If this is acceptable to you, I will submit a
service agreement and a confidentiality agreement for signature by your organization. Then I will send you the login
information for this site, so that you can submit projects securely.
✓Fees are calculated on editing and annotating 500 words of writing per week for four weeks; you may submit writing
totaling 500 words each week. You may submit any mix of writing projects you wish—memos, messages, letters,
reports, proposals—or pieces of projects such as the executive summary to a report.
✓Within 24 hours of your submissions, I will respond with my recommendations and annotations, sent as a text file
that you can copy and paste. Each week I will send you a report on your work, offering broader recommendations
related to matters such as clarity, tone, and structure for your consideration moving forward.
✓Four weeks of editing and guidance will bring significant benefits to you. At the end of the fourth week, I will send a
final appraisal with recommendations.
