Full-service creative care for writers, professionals, and businesses


Hi there! I'm Jess, a professional and freelance editor, writer, and web developer. I hold a Master of Arts in Publishing and Writing, have a decade of experience in copy editing and proofreading, and aspire to be a published author. My job as a senior editorial manager at Skyword keeps me plenty busy, but I am currently booking select freelance projects.

"The most ferocious proofreader I know."

—Jennifer Barber,
Author and Editor

"Jess Huckins provided me with excellent, thorough analysis of my writing. Her thoughtful contributions to both my narrative and the structural integrity of my work improved it beyond all expectations."

—Dillon St. Jean, Author

"I may write the words, but Jess makes them shine.
My books wouldn't be the same without her touch!"

—Jacquelyn Ayres, Author

"She succeeded in a short period of time at a very reasonable cost.
She was very professional, attentive, and understanding to my needs and many changes."

—Ted Karr, Small Business Owner

Words are my passion, and my goal is to help make your product—book, article, website, whatever—the best possible version of itself.
