Services & Pricing

How can we communicate with each other if we don’t make sense?

Language is the only way we can sell products, tell a story, or talk about Game of Thrones.

And nowadays, it’s all done online.

That means our writing has to be sharp and to the point, especially if we’re creating products or marketing material that people consume online.

That’s why I, Monique Muro, protector of copy, writer of wrongs, and lover of words, help online business owners make sure their copy sounds as smart as they actually are.

Resume

With 500+ hours of editing experience, I’ve had the pleasure of editing: online courses, PowerPoint presentations, e-books, blog posts, brochures, sales pages, style guides, emails, web content, transcripts, and social copy.

While my two favorite types of content to edit are Marketing and Spiritual, I’ve edited content in the Health, Technology, Real Estate, Automotive, and Cannabis industries as well, working off style guides from brands like Adobe and Bazaarvoice.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, my love for reading and writing was what spawned my natural talent for copy editing. As a lover of words, it’s always been easy for me to spot when one is out of place.

You can find me behind a laptop copy editing for my clients, or teaching about the importance of clean online course copy at proofmango.com.
