Rebekah Hendershot

I was born and raised in southern California, where my parents regularly dumped me at the local public library to be raised by feral librarians. I grew up with an astonishing breadth of knowledge, the ability to swear in three languages (including Latin), and an allergy to the Dewey decimal system.

Professional Writer/Writing Coach

As a professional writer and writing coach, I can write about almost anything--and help you write better about almost anything.

Category: Writing / Journalism
I am a high-speed professional editor. I analyze writing by e-mail, correct it, and show you how to make it perfect. Sometimes it's as simple as proofreading, but I can also go deep into a document, analyzing logic, structure, flow, description, character, dialogue, plot, and anything else. I can work on anything written in English, and I have extensive experience in editing and formatting screenplays and in working with clients who write English as a second language.
Relevant Education / Credentials
