We believe in the power of words to open doors, capture ideas, solve problems, and provoke action.  Great writing constructs thought out of air.  It builds structures out of observations, evidence, and argument and invites readers in to inhabit these spaces as their own.  It is both road map and provocateur.  It is sustainable, immutable, and foundational. It is a declaration of the self.  Learning to wield that power effectively is the challenge.  Harkletter Academic Editing is your solution.
