Welcome!

I'm Erin Pedigo,

ready to write, edit and proof my way to your best work. I am based in Houston but can work remotely.

Work with me!
 
With a decade's experience in journalism, I am an expert-level writer and editor for the energy/oil/gas sector and business sectors, but also provide top-notch freelance editing and writing for your clients, business or publication in almost any field. 
I have extensive experience with long-form magazine journalism, having worked for IADC's Drilling Contractor magazine and Hart Energy Publishing's Oil and Gas Investor magazine franchise. 
Your magazine or news article, blog post, technical paper, advertising copy or marketing pitch will be polished, coherent, grammatically correct and ready to "wow." 
-----  ----- -----
Additionally, I am an aspiring novelist involved in a Houston-area non-profit creative writers' group. 
Writers share a special camaraderie.
 
I will happily provide other writers with copy editing, line editing and proofreading services, as well as content editing, for novel and non-fiction book manuscripts.
African writer Chinua Achebe said, "I believe myself that a good writer doesn't really need to be told anything except to keep at it;" and poet Sylvia Plath said, "Let me live, love and say it well in good sentences."
