Writer’s Services

All writers benefit from some help, I know I certainly have over the years. My editors at the Los Angeles Times and Simon & Schuster made me a better writer and author, I will be forever grateful to them. You may own a small business looking for a way to make what’s new in your company exciting enough to share in the media through a sizzling press release. Do you have a novel you’d love to pen, or are you interested in writing your memoir for your children, grandchildren and future generations?

I have written everything from website content to books, resumes to press releases, toasts to eulogies to you name it! And I’d love to help you with your project. I’ve listed some of my services below.

How Does It Work?

We have a conversation or communicate in whatever way works best for you. If your project includes editing you supply a writing sample, a few pages or a chapter, then we discuss time frame and my fee. There is no obligation on your part to hire me at that point.

What Does it Cost?

Every project is different, some require an hourly fee, others, such as a polish edit are often times just a penny a word. For other jobs we agree on a flat fee/price.


If you’d like to talk with someone who I have helped with a similar project to yours, just let me know and I’ll introduce you. You can also peruse the list of testimonials on this website.

The Story of Your Life Workshop

I created The Story of Your Life workshop 12 years ago to assist others in writing and preserving their life stories. My grandmother had died and she had been the story keeper in our family. I was so sad that many of our family stories died with her. In the past decade plus I have helped more than 450 people write their memoirs in my classes and weekend workshops. It has been very fulfilling work. I have learned so much through other’s stories and have been inspired by the ways we humans are able to not just survive but thrive after adversity.

If you are in the Verde Valley and interested in taking my workshop please email me for upcoming dates. Info@CynthiaRichmond.com Additionally, I am consulting with savvy folks who can assist me in making my Story of Your Life Workshop available online, so if you have interest in that please check back.
