In this digital age with its abundance of words, I can make yours stand out.
I am a professional editor of fiction and non-fiction works and a highly regarded technical, operational and business writer.
I am listed in the Institute of Professional Editors’ directory.
Whether you need content for websites, reports, operational documents, business rules, tenders or submissions, my clear style will get results.
You may already have a first draft which needs to be tightened, polished and cleaned of all errors. Or you may have an idea for something completely new.

Jessica is highly competent, motivated, an excellent writer and managed a large volume of work under tight deadlines. She is very reliable and well able to undertake confidential and sensitive work.
Jessica has worked for me across a broad range of genres and categories of books from narrative non-fiction through specialist categories as well as fiction titles. She's an extremely thorough, hardworking and technically gifted editor who knows how to make authors happy while doing a great job on improving their books at the same time. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to any author or publisher.
On a first read of my novel, Jessica revealed a flaw—missed by previous reviewers—which required a major rewrite. She has now copy edited my final work and helped me produce a more polished work. I was astonished to see the number of errors she picked up that I thought I had corrected. I would highly recommend her.
Your editing has substantially improved the quality and your suggested headings/structure will make it easier to use. A higher quality document presented for everyday use were key objectives I consider have been achieved or might’ve been exceeded. Further, I like how you worked with me to integrate my preferences.
...the final edit must be made by a professional editor. I have used Jessica Stewart for my novels, and believe that she is one of the best.
Due to her high grades, professional attitude and admirable work ethic, I invited Jessica to join Black Phoenix Publishing Collective (bPPc), a group of qualified editors and publishers working together to publish Australian fiction using digital technology to produce affordable publications with global distribution. While at bPPc, Jessica has been involved in the editing and publishing of some seven books, four already released and three forthcoming. Jessica acted in a number of roles and performed a wide range of tasks while at bPPc, all with a high level of professionalism.
Words are such a powerful way that we can bring greater value and influence to the world, but getting your message out there can be easier said than done. I used to spend weeks reviewing, refining and rewriting my articles, but now Jessica and Your Second Draft are now part of my writing and edit process. Jessica offers me feedback to help refine my message, whilst also ensuring that my words, message and personality come through. Highly recommended
Jessica took my extremely dense material and was able to create a visual presentation and conference handout targeted exactly to the audience’s attention span. She made me look much more professional than my original material would have looked when I did the talk! She did this at extremely short notice and I would be happy to recommend her to others. I shall be sure to ask for her services again.
