Writing and Editing Services

Writing and Editing Services by Jessica Foley of A Modern Mom's Life

Do you love to write? Share your grand ideas with the masses?

Getting the words out is only half the battle for aspiring and accomplished writers alike.

Oftentimes we are too close to our own work to find the flaws within it. A great editor will take your words and ideas and polish them into an easy-to-read, flowing work of art.

Nothing irks me more, while browsing blogs or reading books and articles, than poor grammar or incorrectly edited copy.  And to that end I offer my services, both as an editor, and as a writer, or rewriter as the case may be.

As an Editor:

How I’ll support you:

  • Read your work at any stage of development.  
  • Provide an edited copy, with comments included if required.*
  • Unless specifically requested, I will not comment on plot, content, etc. (This is an add-on option.)
  • Work with you through two revisions. More available at a fee.

My regular fee for editing services is $0.04 per word, with exceptions.

*Providing a copy with comments (for you to learn from) usually requires a full hour over and above the time required to editing your document.  This service incurs a $25 charge over my per word editing fee.


I found Jessica through social media when I am seeking for blog collaboration. It’s good experience to work with Jessica on the process. After that, when my editors not available, I turn to Jessica for blog re-editing for us.

She is good at communication and can get my points correct . And the editing tasks were excellent which save me ton of time . I would highly recommend partnering with Jessica.

As a Writer:

Working closely with you, I offer the following:

  • Create content on most topics.
  • Write about or review products or services on my own blog, or create articles for websites.
  • I take direction well and am able to do revisions quickly.
  • Experience rewriting items such as press releases for media articles.


“We found Jessica through Twitter, and felt she offered a unique connection to get our word out to working parents of young children. We reached out to her and she was eager to help us on short notice to create the kind of content that we were looking for.

Jessica was more than willing to accommodate us with revisions to her original draft and presented us with a plan to achieve our goals by promoting the blog on her social channels.

She was enthusiastic and supportive of our Shop Local Showcase and followed up every step of the way to ensure that her work met our expectations.  We would not hesitate to recommend her for content creation & social media marketing strategy.”
