Meet Alison

Alison, owner of One L Communications, your proofreading resource

Hi, I’m Alison. Yes, with One L. Thanks for stopping by!

With a first name that’s spelled a little differently (to many people, it is missing an ‘L’), it is not surprising that I’ve always had a thing for making sure words are written correctly.

Since childhood, I’ve been an avid reader and writer. And I have always had a sharp eye for noting errors in the text of books, restaurant menus, news tickers, and websites. And did I mention instruction manuals and inserts that are poorly translated to English? I want to help! I began my business, One L Communications LLC, to help people and make their words shine. It is also a valiant effort on my part to help solve world peace by finding and fixing every typo, one at a time. C’mon, it could work…!

My background is in marketing, having spent more than twenty years working for large food companies.

Now, I love to proofread fiction and non-fiction manuscripts for authors and academics. I also proofread and copyedit marketing materials, business reports, and advertisements.

Companies, both large and small, trust me to review and update their websites for clarity and correctness. Companies and entrepreneurs alike count on me to create engaging social media posts and blogs to represent them and help gain new followers and clients.

I am proud that my writing and editing have met the quality standards of the International Association of Professional Writers and Editors (IAPWE).

Whatever your needs, please visit my Services page to find out how I can help you. If you’re unsure what support you need or want to discuss your project, don’t hesitate to get in touch using the links provided.

I look forward to working with you!

Previously a marketing director, I became a full-time freelance proofreader, copyeditor, and copywriter in 2022. When I’m not spending time with my dog, Whiskey, and my wonderful partner, Travis, I love watching major league baseball games, going to movies and concerts, and writing about my fascination with the oddities of life!
