Our Work


I have an enormous amount of respect for what Jenny does. Not only can she craft a beautiful narrative around just about any subject, but she does it in a systematic and professional way. She pushes me to work efficiently and I can always count on Jenny to deliver her work on time. As long as I’m doing graphic design, I’ll continue working with her.

Books

We have worked with Jenny of Fine Lines Editing for nearly three years. We are always impressed with her ability to make our subjects feel confident as she interviews them, which results in the deepest of stories and the sincerest of quotes. Jenny’s strength in writing about our experiences in a true and evocative way is what makes our books so approachable and successful.

Our Local Commons, our collaborative partnership with photographers Andrea Hubbell and Sarah Cramer Shields, has produced three books that chart the artisan food movement as it grows and deepens in Charlottesville and across Virginia. 

Fine Lines Editing provided the editorial direction, copyediting, recipe editing + project management for each book, and Jenny Paurys, owner of Fine Lines, wrote all the feature stories.

With a background in journalism, I am quite picky when choosing editors, and I am always relieved when we can assign Jenny to a job. I know her work will be thorough and reliable, and her efficiency — in both delivering on deadline and in word choice — is deeply appreciated by the client and by me.
— Jen Fleisher | Charmed Designworks

Websites have to do a lot of heavy lifting — engaging potential customers and clients with essential information about an organization or business, while keeping the tone pleasant and the pace quick. 

Fine Lines Editing can meet a variety of website needs. We write new content, edit existing copy — or both. When we're done, you'll have website content that accurately reflects you and your business, leaving customers with the positive first impression that is so vital in today's Internet-driven economy.
