• Professional Editor: Marissa Håkansson


    It's important that you find an editor with the right mix of experience and skill for your business.

     

    Whether you're an international business with an English-speaking audience or an independent professional with English as a second language, you need to ensure your writing sounds natural to native speakers.

     

    That's where I can help.

     

    I'm a native-English speaker with a passion for languages and a career background in marketing communications. When you partner with me, you benefit from my insight, strategy, and know-how — in editing, writing, and business.
     
    I'm well-versed in what makes quality content and experienced in delivering effective communications for a range of businesses.

    In addition to degree qualifications in marketing and business, I've also completed training in editing, professional writing, and copywriting.
