Need an extra pair of eyes for your masterpiece or help with content creation? Let us provide the quality proofing & wordsmithing you seek.

Welcome to Putt Putt Productions, where we like doing what we do best: proofreading, copy editing, developmental editing, and writing.

what we offer

Developmental and copy editing, proofreading and document clean up of books, scripts, dissertations, technical manuals, articles, proposals, personal essays, bios and cover letters. Writing & Original Content.


EVERYTHING should be checked before it goes somewhere — from company reports to family newsletters to dissertations, resumes and cover letters. Sometimes, proofreading even means comparing figures to make sure those figures were correctly entered. We can help you with that.

Copy Editing

Copy editing is more extensive.  It means checking for awkward sentences, continuity, logic, and whether or not it all makes sense, occasionally revising sentences, as well as looking for “stacks” (when words or marks line up weirdly on the page) and other distractions. Copy editing adds clarity while keeping the voice and intent of the writer.

Developmental Editing

Your masterpiece is finally some form of finished, but you're not sure it works. You want an editor to go through, not just for grammar or punctuation, but also to make sure the story flows, the characters are complete, the chapters and scenes work in the order they are written in, and that there's enough tension to keep the reader turning the page.

Writing & Original Content

Reviews of movies and books; profiles of people or products, human interest stories, how-to and informative articles, lifestyle and cultural pieces, essays and narrative commentary, and sponsored content are all in our wheelhouse.

Technical Document Cleanup & Editing

Rewriting and/or reformatting technical documentation, checking for errors, moving from one type of document to another (PDF to Word or Excel for example).
