WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING...

 

"Cortney was deliberate about capturing my unique voice. She took on my story as if it were her own. Her compassion and dedication were accentuated by her knowledge of grammar and editing. Within one year of our start date, my completed manuscript was in the hands of a publisher. The results I had with Cortney as my ghostwriter are undeniable, and without reservation, I highly recommend vocem, LLC for ghostwriting and/or editing."

A Message from the Owner:

"Though I've always loved books, I wasn't always passionate about storytelling, particularly when it was my own. I used to be a content and private introvert. As we all know, life happens. Life cracks happen. Those cracks changed me. I became impressed by the influence stories have on people and the decisions they make. Today, I love engaging with my clients, diving headfirst into the research, investigation, and production of stories I feel are critical for others to hear. I am a curious and proactive writer and editor, interested in preserving the voice of the person whose story I am helping to write. Hence, the name vocem. It's Latin for "voice." So I ask, "Are you ready to write out the story that changed you in the hopes of changing others?"


Core Values:

Collaboration | Relevancy | Meaningful Work
