De Lancie Professional Writing Services

Portrait of the ArtistThank you for visiting De Lancie Professional Writing Services. This site was created to provide prospective clients with a convenient way to view samples of my work — technical communications, marketing communications, and documentation — as well as to see feedback from clients who've entrusted me with their projects. My work combines:

  • expert writing and research skills;
  • a proven ability to turn client messaging into successful collateral;
  • a knack for finding a clear path through complex technical topics;
  • a thorough approach that yields publication-ready deliverables that are informative and persuasive.

I typically work directly with clients as an independent contractor. I am well-connected with other skilled professionals in the field, enabling me to bring a larger team to bear as needed for projects of larger scope or shorter deadlines.

As principal, I take great pride in my work and in the positive relationships I've developed with clients over many years of professional experience. To discuss how I can help meet your communication or documentation goals, please contact me, Philip De Lancie.
