About Nichole Kraft

I’m Nichole Kraft, and I believe words matter. Words can change the world. Words have weight.

When you choose a freelance editor, choose one who is a solid supporter of your message. If you publish on topics like animal welfare, plant-based nutrition and cooking, faith and religion, environmental responsibility, personal growth, or similar subjects, I can help your projects reach new heights of clarity, accuracy, and expression. I can do so because I practice and advocate for these things. Nonfiction with a message isn’t just my specialty—it’s my passion.
