I am a professional writer and editor with more than ten years of experience, a master’s degree in English Literature, and a certificate in Professional Editing from the University of California, Berkeley Extension.

Do you want your website to engage customers? Your manuscript to charm a publisher? Your annual report to convince new investors? Do you need help crafting your company’s history or polishing your nonprofit’s policy report so that it is professional and engaging?

To meet your needs, Lindow Editorial Services provides a full spectrum of editorial services including project management, writing, developmental editing, fact-checking, copyediting, and proofreading.

I have a strong familiarity with the Chicago Manual of Style and Associated Press Stylebook. I enjoy ensuring consistency, concision, and correctness while maintaining the author’s meaning and voice.

Give me your text, and I will not only make it clear, concise, and correct—I will make it sing.

“Julie expertly tackled a 1,000-page medical student reader with more than 70 authors. She easily adapted to each physician-author’s needs, maintained strict version control, copyedited with a fine-tooth comb, and formatted the reader in InDesign. Students constantly gave the reader the highest marks and commented that it improved their learning process.”

“Julie is my ace in the hole when I need the best consultant to carry a project to a higher professional standard, on time and on budget. Additionally, Julie has talent with the written word; she is not a one-note writer/editor. Her creative spirit shines through as she writes in many tones and styles, with a strong foundation in academic writing, web copy, and marketing copy.”

Randall Ann Homan, Senior Partner

“Julie Lindow was an absolute life saver for my personal statement for Ob/Gyn residency. As a medical student, the personal statement for residency is a daunting endeavor – thankfully, Julie made the process so much easier for all of the Ob/Gyn applicants. She met with me multiple times throughout the process to help me think about my passions, hopes, goals in an organized way. She also reviewed numerous drafts of my essay and gave me thoughtful feedback on the content. I also appreciated how she created a timeline for our writing process and made sure that we stuck to it! I am forever grateful for all of Julie’s guidance.”
