Everything we do at Seven Madronas has one aim: to increase the impact of your message via strong writing and sound editing that honors your voice.
We work with

  • Authors (self-publishing and traditional)
  • Solopreneurs
  • Small businesses
  • Publishers, large and indie
  • Students
  • Nonprofits

Wherever you are on the writing spectrum—from fear and loathing to hey-this-ain’t-half-bad!– we can help. Contact me to chat about everything from a light copy edit that checks for grammar, spelling, and clarity all the way to a ghost-write of an article, white paper, brochure, website, or blog. Call us if…


  • You’d like better social media or to go beyond it by landing real media coverage
  • You want a more powerful, friendly website that captures who you are and what you do
  • Your book needs a content editor, copy editor, or proofreader before you send it to publishers or self-publish
  • You’d like to blog, write articles or white papers, or create marketing materials–or you suspect you could be doing it better (we can help!)
  • You’re not sure if your book needs an editor, but someone told you it might (trust us: you need an editor!)

It is always a delight working with Seven Madronas Communications. JoAnne continues to bring to the table that rare combination of understanding the intent of the writer and magically fiddling, ever so delicately, with structure and flow in a way that intensifies the message.  She recently helped us at Seattle Jobs Initiative with our 2015 Report to the Community.  Not an easy task as it was long and filled with profiles.  After JoAnne’s wizardry was complete, the document read just as I had hoped – a moving story of an agency that does miraculous work on multiple levels.
