After more than 25 years writing, editing, and event planning in fields ranging from academics and the arts to the business and nonprofit worlds, I founded Pyxis Creative Solutions LLC because I believe in writers and writing, in what they can do for each other and how they can contribute -- not just to the economy of the marketplace, but the economy of ideas and concepts that make our world a more diverse, interesting, and ultimately, a wiser place.
The name Pyxis is derived from Pyxis Nautica or Mariner's Compass. I chose it both for its reference to the navigational tool and the constellation named after it.
You've come to Pyxis Creative Solutions because you are searching for something ...
Whether you are a business looking for carefully crafted written content or a writer looking for editing or promotional services, the first thing I’ll do is listen. To you. To your vision. Pyxis holds open a space for your vision and can provide you with "navigational" services and carefully crafted messaging, but the voice will always be yours.
As an editor, this approach allows me to help you organize and hone your manuscript or text so you can present your work at its very best. As a writer, it enables me to understand your needs, message, product, and style so that I can craft a professional piece that looks and feels authentic to you. In addition, my experience as an event planner and coordinator enables me to help you conceptualize, produce, and disseminate information in a way that best suits your needs and goals.
I look forward to hearing your story.
