Canadian plain language editors and writers at your service

Hi. My name is David Leonhardt, and I run THGM Writing Services. Our team of professional writers and editors can write your book, article blog post or report in plain English. Your readers will “get” your message. Your audience will act on your message. Improve your readability, and your documents will be more effective.

There is a huge difference between being able to read something, and actually making the effort to read it. Studies show that even doctors and lawyers prefer to read below the grade 8 reading level. If you want to reach your audience, if you want to have maximum impact, you must use plain language.

Five things you should know about the cost of plain language editing and writing

We don’t compete on price. We compete on quality. We charge what it takes to give you top quality.

  • The longer the manuscript, the more it costs to write or edit.
  • Editing and writing are labor intensive jobs. They cost money.
  • Plain language will save you more money or make you more money than it costs.
  • Ours team is just as good as celebrity writers, but you don’t pay extra for their celebrity status.
  • There are cheaper writing services on the Internet. But if price is your top consideration, why even hire an editor?

We’ll make you more profitable!

The top two reason people ask us to edit their documents are:

  • They want more people to read their materials and follow through on their call to action. They want to stop losing sales.
  • They want customers to understand their materials better, because misunderstandings and confusion cost them too much money.

Once we have finished with your manuscript, your writing will be better. It will be clearer. It will be easier to read. It will be a bridge to action, rather than a barrier to sales.
