Welcome. I'm Trish Lockard. As Strike The Write Tone, I offer a full range of editorial services for nonfiction and creative nonfiction, and am a writing coach, specializing in memoir.


In addition to my own clients, I often do freelance editing for publishers across the country.

I am a member of:

Editorial Freelancers Association
ACES: The Society for Editing
National Association of Independent Writers and Editors

In my personal life, I am a long-time member of and volunteer for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). I have served as a chapter president and am a certified classroom instructor for the NAMI program Family-to-Family. I brought those years of experience to my writing of Make a Difference with Mental Health Activism.

In October 2023, I became a Humanist Celebrant, authorized to attend to the pastoral and ceremonial needs of Humanists or those seeking nontheistic, nonreligious services. See my Humanist Society directory profile here. I post about my celebrant experiences on Instagram as trishlockard.  


Long ago and far away. . . after receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications from the University of South Florida in Tampa, I began a career as a technical writer of software instruction manuals for telecommunications, insurance, cartography, and freight logistics companies, as well as corporate policy and procedure documentation and employee benefits handbooks.
