I'm not an excellent writer, but I'm an excellent rewriter.
- James Michener
Never shortchange the importance of rewriting! I've heard it said that good writing is 10% first draft and 90% rewriting. Maybe more!
When J.R.R. Tolkien wrote The Lord of the Rings, he had in mind a simple sequel to his successful book The Hobbit. After more than 10 years of rewrites, he turned out what many people consider the best book of the 20th Century! That's the importance of rewriting.
There are other uses for rewriting, however. Does your business change very often? For businesses in the Information Age, change is the only constant. And most companies that have been around any length of time have already created a ton of content ready to be re-purposed for a new audience. I believe that requires the services of someone with both copywriting experience and an eye for editing.

I have been working with Ross for several years now on every type of document, from academic articles to marketing. His work is thorough, his turnaround time is quick, and his changes are easy to understand. Ross makes sure that he fully comprehends the intention behind the words before executing any extensive rephrasing—which saves countless hours of review. I highly recommend him and I am grateful to have him on my team.
