Experience

Principal editor Linda Singerle heads To The Point with 28 years of experience in print publication, community news, advertising, corporate communications, and web publishing. She collaborates with a select network of skilled writers, editors, and designers to complete your work promptly and accurately.

Expertise

A unique mashup of geek and grammar wonk, Linda specializes in medical and technical content. Early in her career, she turned in the second-highest score on the University of Chicago Press’s Astrophysical Journal copy editing test. Yes, you read that correctly — second highest. Somewhere out there is a geekier perfectionist, but good luck finding her!

 

A second area in which she shines is preservation of voice. Adeptly she fine-tunes the mechanics of writing (grammar, usage, punctuation, spelling, and style) without losing the author’s distinct voice. Funny, formal, fast-paced, meticulously detailed — whatever feel you're going for or whatever needs suit your project, she'll achieve it.

Styles used

To The Point uses all the prominent style guides: AP, Chicago, AMA, APA, and MLA. We also follow any proprietary style guide you supply (your in-house style) and add to it as needed.
