“Let’s be reasonable and add an eighth day to the week that is devoted exclusively to reading.” – Lena Dunham


About Me

Hello! I am Sara Woodard. I'm a happy proofreader because I get to help writers make sure their books and articles are spotless so they can spend their time writing and marketing their work.

I've been an avid reader my entire life. Now that I'm older, that love of reading has transformed into a love of improving the written word.

I'm a single mom to my silly 7-year-old daughter. In my free time, I love to read (not a surprise), drink coffee, and play Minecraft.
