Even the best writing needs some gentle mending! I help makers and creative businesses stitch up their content so they can keep inspiring the crafting community.
Editing & Writing
Thimble Editorial offers editing services to help you make sure your writing is ready to go out into the world. I specialize in polishing text in its final stages, reducing distractions and clarifying language so that it flows well. I’ll comb through your writing to catch any errors and help your message shine.
Need help with writing? I’m also a practiced copywriter, with experience writing newsletters, blog posts, product descriptions, and website content. If writing makes your palms sweat, let’s talk! I can help you translate your ideas into clear content for your audience.
Craft & How-To Topics
Good craft writing makes anybody feel capable of creating, and your voice as a maker is at the center of it all. You’re a trusted resource providing guidance, encouragement, and instruction. My job as an editor and writer is to amplify your voice by making sure that your writing is clear, consistent, and reliable while showing your unique personality.
I love editing how-to writing—not only about crafting, but also about cooking, gardening, hobbies and games, personal improvement, and more. Whether you’re writing instructional books, tutorials, blog posts, product catalogs, or anything else, I’m here to help make your content the best it can be.
… And More
While my primary focus is on editing craft and how-to writing, I enjoy working on texts of all kinds. I have edited romance novels, picture books, recipes, blog posts, cover letters, marketing materials, academic journal articles, and magazine articles.
Genres I especially enjoy include fantasy, regency romance, children's picture books, memoir, and general interest nonfiction. Let’s have a conversation to see how I can help you polish your writing!
Sara is a terrific copyeditor and proofreader. As a novelist, I'm always looking for partners who will help me tell a stronger story and look professional while doing it. Sara strengthens my sentences, lexicon, and grammar. She always provides reasoning behind her suggested edits, and even goes above and beyond to check obscure or foreign words! I am always more confident when I publish books when they have been reviewed by Sara's expert eye. I highly recommend Sara for your copyediting needs!
Katherine Grant, Katherine Grant Romance
Sara is a killer copyeditor with a sharp eye for detail. At first, I wasn't even sure I wanted to invest in hiring a copyeditor for my book proposal, but I'm so glad that I did; it made all the difference. Before I worked with Sara, I submitted my proposal to a handful of agents and received 100% passes. After working with Sara, I got three offers of representation and signed with an agent I love. I will definitely use her services again!
