Martha H. Fitzgerald spent 20 years in journalism management coaxing the square-smallerbest from dozens of writers. She now works with private and business clients, helping them develop a vivid and readable writing style. Her first edited manuscript, Letters to Luke by Joe E. Holoubek M.D., won two international awards.

“One thing I loved about journalism was meeting new people and going new places every week. I also loved helping writers of every level become better writers. Those two passions now meet in Martha Fitzgerald Consulting/ Editing & Writing Ventures.”

Testimonials

My task was to write my first book. Martha Fitzgerald pushed me along like a 60 mph wind at my back. I needed plenty of help and she gave it professionally, pleasantly, and promptly. Like a favorite high school English teacher, she stayed on me to polish the finished copy properly and did a wonderful job of putting the entire project together from cover to cover.

Martha Fitzgerald is a veteran writer and editor who can shape a project from start to finish.  She is an outstanding editor with the rare ability to keep both details and the big picture in mind.  I have turned to Martha frequently over the years to edit my copy and to give me her opinion on projects I have undertaken.  Her judgment is excellent and her skills exceptional.

Martha Fitzgerald brought her extensive experience in journalism to bear on a project many would have considered too demanding: Produce a private company’s book on a natural disaster in 30 days including interviews, photos and the writing itself. She came through with a better finished product than we imagined.  Martha’s writing is gripping and clear and she is a quick study as well, learning enough to write like a company insider in just a few days. We could not have chosen a better person to write “Hurricane Chronicles.”

Martha Fitzgerald has an eye for the salient detail that will engage the reader. She never loses sight of the fact that each story, each project, must have a personal connection to the audience and must be told in such a way that expresses why they should care about it.
