Bridget Geegan Blanton















Background and Experience




I hold a B.A. Degree in French from Saint Mary's College, Notre Dame, Indiana


After 10 years of working as a freelance French translator, I left the translation business and focused my energy full-time as a writer. Although, I occasionally provide translation services, I write daily providing clients with high quality written content. My writing is versatile and professional. Give me a word count, a topic and I deliver on time and at a competitive rate.


I write a regular column for a local newspaper and can create content that is focused and informative. I know how to present a topic, discuss the merits and finish off the discussion within a restrictive word count. I don't charge clients for time spent researching a topic. I apply the same high standards to services provided to clients that I apply to personal writing projects.


I have recently self-published my debut historical fiction novel, 'Whispers on the Wind'.


The versatility of my writing is extensive. The nature of the projects I have worked on include: medical, legal, business, marketing, creative, artistic, and technical. I have also worked with individuals on various personal communication matters.


Let me assist you in upgrading your new or existing web-site. Influence visitors to click through to the rest of your site with targeted content that provides the information that they seek.

Custom Service Options




I have recently created a series of written contractual discussions on the topic of donor corneas used in Keratoplasty surgery. This series included additional discussions on medicare reimbursements and the topic of tissue donation.


I also create content for web-sites, on-line newsletters, blog sites and e-zines.


Articles can be written according to client's specifications, topics and target audience.

The Competitive Edge




My goal is to provide my clients with a competitive edge.

The quality of a written document is comparable to a first impression and a flawless, concise piece of writing can have a substantial impact upon your level of success. My professional editing services will ensure that your document is error free, fine-tuned and ready for submission.

Choose from a wide range of services to custom-fit your editing needs.

Your document might simply require a final proofreading for spelling errors that can’t be caught with the limitation of the spell check option. I also offer a comprehensive grammar and sentence structure analysis of your document. A more extensive content check includes a complete revision of your document’s format by improving the actual text while preserving the tone and integrity of your writing ‘voice’. Whether you’re in midst of trying to perfect a technical report or simply need a final check on your resumè, I can and will transform your original document into a powerful and concise piece of writing.


Is English a new language for you?

It is difficult for native English speakers to objectively proofread and edit their own writing, and even harder for students new to the English language. Improve your grades with the insight provided by my English language editing service. Copy editing is instrumental in catching small oversights in grammar, punctuation or spelling errors in your writing project. An overall evaluation of the content of your document will provide you with pointers on style and suggestions for improved phrasing.

Improve the chances of having your manuscript read in a competitive writing marketplace.

Before a gatekeeper at a publishing house or a literary agent chooses to read a manuscript, they want to know at the outset that it has undergone a professional edit. They won’t waste their time without this all-important guarantee. Gone are the days when an unpolished manuscript would find its way into the hands of an agent. The market is too competitive and there is no longer any margin for error. Give your fiction or non-fiction manuscript the competitive edge by allowing the trained eye of a professional manuscript editor to fine tune your potential best seller.

Save your valuable time for more important projects and outsource your proofreading and editing needs to us. No job is too large or too small – I cover it all; from memos, resumès and press releases to legal and technical documents. Need a professional proofreader for your company’s new web-site?

I understand that your success is my success.

You can gauge the success of a business by the number of referrals and repeat customers. My mission is to exceed your expectations. Due to my competitive pricing and the high quality of my work, my clients return time and time again with all of their proofreading and editing needs. My service is fast, my rates are affordable and I guarantee your satisfaction.
