What We Do

Yardarm specializes in all types of editing and writing. We’re at the ready when it comes to book editing, book development, and ghostwriting for first-time writers and veteran authors. With extensive contacts in the publishing world, we also edit previously acquired titles for publishers and provide book-doctoring services for projects already in development. If you’re a commercial, professional, or non-profit organization that needs editing assistance with web content and promotional material, we can help you polish and fine-tune your message. We work with website copy and social media content, grant proposal writing and development, as well as promotional writing for small businesses and corporations. We know how tough it is to actually say what you mean and mean what you say, so Yardarm is here to help you streamline the process and make sure you reach your audience. When it comes to marketing copy, we have a personal and customized approach. Whether it’s web writing or retooling web content, we work closely with our clients to understand how they work and what they need. Our office is located in Durham, North Carolina.


I’m singing the praises here of Yardarm Media. I just hired them to help me with editing the 18-page narrative I had to write for a grant. I worked with Geoff Caldwell there and he was AMAZING. Just got positive feedback on it from the program officer and I am so glad I hired Yardarm.  Whew.
