"Four basic premises of writing: clarity, brevity, simplicity, and humanity."
--William Zinsser

About Me

My name is Chad Sievers, and I started Sievers Communications, LLC, in 2011, to provide editing to authors who not only wanted to publish interesting projects, but who also wanted to become better writers. 

My mission statement is simple: To help every writer reach his/her full potential and to ensure the text—no matter whether it's a book, online text, or some other form—is interesting and clear, and something the reader will want to read.

I'm a detail-oriented self-starter with a proven track record of success based in Indianapolis, Indiana. I've been editing in some form (in journalism, nonprofit communications, and book and online publishing) for more than 20 years.

I have strong multitasking and organizational skills and can adapt to whatever you and your project require. With my proven project management, writing, content/development editing, copy editing, and coaching experience, I can help even the newest author feel comfortable and at ease.

As a freelance editor and writer, the values important to me as I write and edit include

  • Accountability
  • Attention to detail
  • Collaboration
  • Competence
  • Dependability
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Mindfulness
  • Professionalism
  • Respect

You've spent a lot of hard work on your manuscript, and it deserves the extra TLC. Let me work with you to create something in which you can be proud.
