“It’s not who you know—

it’s whom you know.”

Welcome to my website. I write. I edit. I facilitate groups. I try to make the world better, one comma at a time.

My name is Neal Starkman. If you want to develop a brochure, a training design, a curriculum, or anything else that attempts to improve people's lives, then I might be able to help you. On this site you'll see some of the work I've done. Do contact me - at - if you'd like more information.
