Do you have a story to tell?

If you’re looking for someone who will help bring your words to life, Shine Your Voice is the writing and editing service to do just that. I work with clients of all types and backgrounds to make sure that their message gets across in the best way possible.

Whether it’s an article, blog, presentation, program, or book manuscript – my goal is always to provide quality content that helps people understand what you need them to know.

You have a message to share, but don’t know where to start.

It’s hard to find the time and energy to write content that is both effective and interesting. Plus, there are many different types of writing for different purposes, which can make it difficult to figure out where or how you should start. I can help!

If you already have some content, I can help you take it from “I need an editor!” to “This is the best thing I’ve ever written!” We will work together until we get there.

You can rest easy knowing that your project will be handled by someone who cares about every word they write and edit. I want nothing more than for you to feel confident in your final product so that it can do exactly what it needs to do – shine!

Writing

Don’t want to write? I’ve got you! I’ll interview you to learn about your message and help bring it to life.

Editing

Got something together? I’m happy to offer proofreading along with both line and content editing – I’ll check your grammar and make suggestions to bring out your message.

Proofreading

Just want a second pair of eyes? I’m happy to look it over for you, fix any mistakes, and give you feedback!

Meet your team!

Rachel Miles

In 2021, I started on a quest to find my voice. I’ve been able to find that through my writing and storytelling. Now I want to help your voice shine through your work. I’m so excited to hear what you’re passionate about and help you bring that to life!

My core values are autonomy, growth, and creativity. It’s what’s in my bones. When I don’t have autonomy, my growth is stunted. When I’m not growing, I have no inspiration to be creative. Since these values are so foundational to me, this is a huge part of what I offer you in the writing and editing services I provide.

Pricing


$60

/hr

How this can be calculated:

At $60/hr, I’d be charging 5 cents a word, which is around 4-6 pages per hour.

A 500 word article could cost $25 depending on what you need.

Request an estimate for more exact pricing. If your project is more complex, I may request we have an initial consultation to make sure I understand your needs before I send an estimate.


Example Project Estimates

Projects will vary depending on what you want, but hopefully this gives you an idea of how we could work together. All of the estimates will depend on the complexity of your project and the steps are not set in stone. If something can be done as an email, I’m all for it. Every project is different!
