Review a letter before you send it.

10 simbi per unit - Virtual OK

Don't confuse this with traditional copy editing*. This is looking at communication structure and approach.

I can look over a letter you wish to send to be sure that you are using good communication techniques to achieve the outcome you are hoping for. While I cannot guarantee the outcome on any letter, I can help make sure that you give it your best shot by using the best techniques and structure for getting your specific message across. Being able to communicate your ideas in written text is a challenge. Sometimes having an objective third party look at your letter is a good idea.
We can talk about your goals with the letter. Look at your draft and see what kinds of changes or rearranging may need to be done.
100% confidential and I can explain the reasoning for every suggestion I give. Suitable for business or personal letters.

*You should seek a professional copy editor for your final copy.

Training & Qualifications


Communications educator for over 16 years at the University of Colorado Health Sciences.
A letter is really just a written conversation. Getting your ideas across in an economic and effective way can be a challenge. I use my communication skills to help you formulate the best letter you can send for your specific situation. I want you to achieve the goals for your letter.

Availability & Preferences


Fairly flexible

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

About Dennis Vander Houwen

I am a full time comedy magician who performs magic in restaurants and for public and private events. My other work includes working as a communications educator at the University of Colorado. I tea...ch medical students communication skills and have a passion for understanding effective communication. For fun I enjoy Tenkara fly fishing, playing my ukulele, camping , hiking, and hanging out with my son and wife. I love bow ties, embrace a lifestyle of simplicity and minimalism, drink great coffee, am somewhat of a beer snob, enjoy a good scotch and nice night out under the stars. Recently I started a cottage business making artisan magic wands for magicians and wizarding folk. I enjoy do it your self projects and love making my own things. I like to write, have a blog and one published magazine article under my belt. I am a veteran of the Gulf War where I was a combat photographer. I now mostly take pictures of fish, wildlife, landscapes and family. show more
