Writing is a joy in all forms, but too frequently we struggle to make it happen. As a writer and editor with more than 30 years of experience, I began Open All Night professional writing and editing services to help people polish their writing for any platform. I also take on freelance writing assignments.

I specialize in helping writers with structure, something that began for me in a 9th grade English class taught by Lawrence Dorson at Newtown High School in Queens, N.Y.

So here’s to you, Mr. Dorson, and the many mentors I’ve had over the years who have helped with my journalism skills, narrative writing and fiction.

“As a budding writer, Les guided me in the craft with instruction and professionalism. His ability to structure words and stories were instrumental in writing my first book. Additionally, he gave me great insight on creating better blog posts for my readers which provided engagement that spurred growth.”
