First column posted today!!! You have been absolutely instrumental in helping me get the creative juices flowing, and then articulating myself well - so thank you for all the moral support, guidance, copy editing (of course!), and all the in between!
We had a new business meeting with the head of marketing for a huge company and he said that he thinks our marketing/thought leadership (particularly the Medium publication) is some of the best he's ever seen. I attribute much of that to the editing help CYC has given us.
A unique mastery of copywriting, editing and writing; you are not just line-editors—you are a thought-partner and visionary.
The pure amount of projects, sales pages, book drafts, blog posts, and website copy reviews (over 2.5 years of collaborative work on profitable websites) shows more than I could write how much I respect and value Elisa and CYC’s opinion when it comes to copy and content.
I wanted to use writing to tell the stories of my photographs in a way that drew potential clients into the time and process of capturing that moment...the increased confidence that I have in marketing my site is a direct result of the great support and working relationship that I have with everyone at CYC.
CYC’s help with writing and editing was the key turning factor in an extremely important breaking point for my business. They helped me to present my ideas in precisely the right way for the situation, and while they made everything sound way more professional, they also preserved my ideas in a way that I could still identify with.
CYC are *the* best editors I've ever worked with. I wrote a number of articles for various tech-centered websites where Elisa served as Managing Editor. While I am not the best writer, I've always carried pride in my writing ability. I usually greet the edits of proofreaders and editors with boredom. This was not the case with CYC. To this day, they are the best content editors I have ever worked with. For the first time, I was significantly challenged--and thrilled--by an editor. Because of them, I've produced my best work ever; featured in major publications in both print and media. I could not recommend CYC any higher.
Craft Your Content (CYC) provides editing and proofreading services to authors and entrepreneurial writers who want to rise above the noise and publish excellent written material. We work with clients who have something important to say and are interested in creating value through high-quality content, rather than chasing superficial successes.
We value the unique voice and vision of each client. By understanding and respecting every client’s particular way of communicating and non-negotiable core values, we help them represent themselves through their writing in the clearest, most persuasive way possible.
Become a Master Writer is an eight-week self-study course that teaches you how to become a better writer using a technique that some of the most famous writers, thinkers, and authors have used for centuries—copywork.
Copywork is exactly what it sounds like. You find some writing that you like, or can learn from, and sit down to copy it by hand (word for word, punctuation mark for punctuation mark, space for space).
During the course, you'll not only learn about the nuances and structures of masterful writing, but you'll find your own writing routine becomes stronger when you have something to write every day (even if it is someone else's words!)
