With increasing frequency, organizations and individuals are looking beyond themselves to fulfill their documentation needs. Smaller, locally owned businesses usually lack the resources or steady work necessary to hire detail-oriented writing and editing professionals full time, and individuals are recognizing that editing isn't just a luxury for the wealthy, but an investment towards a successful work product and career.
Austin Editing was created with these organizations and individuals in mind. AE's contract services can be called in only when needed and do not become part of the employee benefits burden carried by most companies. We are also a local and personal presence -- no sending your work product into the void without someone to talk and follow up with.
