I'm Marne Platt, author, speaker editor, voracious reader, and word enthusiast. I founded Fundamental Capabilities while exploring the questions of what I enjoyed and excelled at. My answers all involved words. Writing, reading, editing, speaking…and helping others to do so with confidence, to feel in control of their own words and selves, and to live their lives with intention and integrity.
Ready to improve your own words? Explore my books, technical writing, and document services.
I edit fiction, general non-fiction, and technical documents for authors of all skill levels. Whether this is your first short story or your 100th journal article, I will give it care and attention and help you make it better. Find out more on the document services page.
I write content for a range of clients in animal health, drawing on my years of experience as a veterinarian and executive in the animal health industry.
