I’ve been writing and editing for over 35 years — and teaching these skills for nearly 20 years.
After several years practicing law in the 1990s and nearly two decades teaching high school English and Journalism, I’ve decided to open up shop as a professional editor and writer.
I created Argus Editorial Services to help anyone who needs an expert to review, copy edit, or proofread their work, whether it’s a manuscript of a story or novel, business marketing materials, a thesis, or website and social media content.
I chose the name Argus because, like the mythological watchman with a hundred eyes, my mission is to ensure that your writing is as close to flawless as it can be.
If you’re looking for an editor with an eagle eye to polish your work to a high gloss, I hope you’ll consider Argus Editorial Services.

“Bill Wolfe is that rare editor who thinks like a writer. He thinks about flow, about character, about context. I came to him as I was about to share my manuscript with agents and wanted to avoid embarrassing typos. He fixed the typos, but he also gave me great suggestions for changing dialogue, addressing inconsistencies or, in several places, fixing anachronisms in my historical fiction. I trust him to make my writing better and cleaner.”
Phyllis W. Jordan, author of Taking the Waters
“With Bill’s help, my manuscript is tighter, cleaner, and stronger and something I can now feel proud to put my name on. I was surprised to see my pages riddled with errors, from overused words and phrases to improper sentence structure and inconsistent tenses. Bill’s service extends beyond a basic grammatical sweep and clean-up. He offers advice on the layout of scenes, character voice, and description of setting, and he made me rethink certain adjectives and verbs for greater effect. There is a real value in professionally-edited work. I will never again submit another book without Bill’s strategic advice and thorough polishing.”
Suzanne Simonetti, author of The Butterfly Garden
