Saada STYLO© is my freelance editing and writing business launched in 2005.
Saada Branker is my name. In Swahili, Saada roughly means help, and in Arabic it’s closer to happiness.
Stylo (pronounced Steel-OH)
A pen—that’s what Stylo means in French. I pore over copy as though I have a red one in hand. I also have style guides, dictionaries, software, apps, and years of experience researching, editing and writing.
Forget: la plume de ma tante. Your aunt is family. Unless she edits and writes, she won’t work copy as thoroughly as I do.
