Welcome to Purple Ink Editing! My name is Ali Ferguson, MA, and I provide professional editing and writing services to meet all communicators' individual needs.

It is my firm belief that everyone can write well if given the chance to improve his/her problem areas, so I take an individualized teaching approach to editing as opposed to a fix-all approach. I work closely with my clients to meet their particular needs and help them reach their writing goals. For me, it’s more about developing the writer than it is about the text, but trust me, I can whip any piece of writing into shape.

It has been my goal since college to eventually start my own freelance editing business, and I am finally getting the chance to do that with Purple Ink Editing. In addition, I provide resume and writing services as well, so check out the services page to see what I can do for you. 

In my six plus years of editing and writing experience, I have worked on numerous projects, including proposals, resumes, dissertations, theses, business plans, journal articles, cover letters, educational pamphlets/manuals, website content, books, and much more!

While the following list is not extensive, here are a few examples of the disciplines with which I have experience:
  • Communications
  • Engineering
  • Art Education
  • Business
  • Management
  • Marketing
  • Computer Science
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Kinesiology
  • Game Theory
  • Statistics/Econometrics
  • Health Information
  • And More!
Please contact me if you have any questions or want to discuss a potential project. I am always excited to work with new people to help them create the best prose possible. I also offer free sample edits, so you have nothing to lose!
