My name is Jayme Gittings.

I am an editor and a writer.
As the Director of Acorn Consulting,
I am here to help your writing succeed.
Our world is thick with communication and the demand for the highest quality writing resonates across all sectors.
Great ideas and stories need to be told to
enrich our collective experience,
but they also must be told well.
Engaging a professional maximizes the success of your project, whether it's a manuscript, grant application, research article, or website.
Acorn will help elevate your project.
Let's do this right the first time. Together.

Not sure if you
need a professional editor?
Think a writer is too expensive for
your budget?
How can a professional help me reach my goals?
We have answers for your questions. 
We are very good at finding
the very good in your writing.
Editing and writing is about trust.
So why trust Acorn?
Jayme, Acorn's Director and Founder, spent decades working with talented, dedicated community leaders to help others find a foothold when all felt lost.
She worked in the trenches at small and large nonprofits in the Philadelphia and Washington, DC areas. Resources were always tight and creativity and old-fashioned hard work resulted in success. Writing happened on the fly. Skills were learned quickly and tested in the field. Everything was done by fire.
As an front-line worker and consultant, Jayme delivered countless forms of communication and brings that experience to every Acorn client.
Your work deserves the individual attention
it will receive with Acorn.
