About Meisha

As a business turned communication major, Meisha worked meticulously to perfect her craft as a writer—quickly adapting to the nuances of writing for both the newspaper and television. She learned the art of brevity while working in television and how to carefully add more detail for the ever-curious reader during her time with the newspaper. The invaluable lessons of her dual experience piqued her curiosity to the technical side of writing and editing.

After receiving her bachelor of science in communication, Meisha wanted to combine her experiences and went on to obtain a post-baccalaureate certification in copy editing from the University of California, Berkeley. In the editorial program, she mastered the proper use of grammar and syntax—learning how to edit prose for a wide range of audiences.

What I can do for you

At Pen2Paper Editorial, I strive to provide quality material in a timely fashion. Whether it’s a biography revision, a cover letter, or a self-help book that crosses my desk, each project is met with the same standard of excellence. It is important that you get a personalized experience with me—the editorial professional you’re trusting to exceed your expectations and deliver the intended results.

My editing style is collaborative, kind, and honest—I want to work with you to ensure your projects are delivered with grace and clarity. I also want to do what I can to assuage the feeling of overwhelm some may experience during the writing and editing processes. My impassioned pursuit to understand the English language at the highest level is the inspiration behind Pen2Paper Editorial.

It is my belief that words give us insight into the past and tell the stories of our present while giving shape to our future. I want to help elevate your prose to its rightful place in history, and that is what I do each and every day.
