Afoma Umesi: Content & Manuscript Editor

Afoma Umesi freelance writer/editor

I’m a writer and editor with Chicago Manual of Style proficiency and over four years of experience.

In that time, I’ve edited online content, adult fiction, non-fiction, and children’s literature. I am meticulous, highly communicative, and especially passionate about helping individuals and small businesses effectively convey information about themselves and their brand.

Got a blog, website, digital publication, or any online content in need of finessing? I’m your girl.


Additional Editorial Services:

– Content Management: I’ve managed publishing schedules for various websites, including assigning content to writers and providing them with feedback.

– Content Style Guide Development: I’ve worked with multiple websites to create an in-house style guide or improve their existing one.

Search Engine Optimization in WordPress: As an experienced WordPress user, I’ve worked to add sub-headings, titles, tags, image texts, meta description, focus keyword, and overall improve SEO and Readability scores for websites.

What Clients Are Saying…

Afoma delivered beyond my expectations from day one — her edits were always spot on, making the text clearer, and ensuring the right keywords popped. She doesn’t just go through text correcting spelling and grammar mistakes, instead, she thinks critically about the message that is being conveyed and makes edits to help that message come across more compellingly. Always responsive and meeting deadlines – I highly recommend Afoma!

Mirona Agachi, Founder, MyCareer.

Afoma did excellent work. I needed her to edit content for a sophisticated audience, and she delivered. She communicates well, and I look forward to working with her in the future.

– Ruthie Bowles, Defy the Status Quo

This was my first time working with Afoma and I can’t express how pleased I was with her work. She is a talented writer and efficient but that wasn’t her most impressive quality. Her ability to grasp exactly what I wanted in the style and tone I needed was impeccable. Thank you Afoma for a well written, holistic book that needs no edits from me!
