I had the pleasure to have Barbara Molloy help me with my resume. She was extremely helpful with her assistance and very professional with her editing and explanations when helping me. She is very knowledgeable in grammar and many types of writing styles for books, school work, resumes and editing. I would be happy to recommend Barbara Molloy, she has a great sense of humor also! Very Fun Lady! I appreciate her knowledge and help!Oct 20, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I usually charge by the hour but it is also flexible depending on the type of project. There are times when a project is best treated as a standard minimum to maximum price upon completion. I find there is almost always room for negotiation.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Listening for at least a half an hour! It is imperative that this time with the client be one in which the I am invited into the client's psyche as much as the details of the project at hand. This is because --- whether putting together a novel, a memoir or a resume --- the client's goals are usually very specific but not fully fleshed out and/or articulated in words. It's my job to take notes and listen for at least a half hour (at no charge to the client of course) so that both of us are clear about all aspects of the project on a 'nuts and bolts' level (format, word limit if applicable, audience, etc.) as well as on a grander scale, e.g., how will this project's completion move the client closer to her/his achievement goals professionally and personally.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I was a fellowship student at the prestigious University of Iowa Writers Workshop. I have been publishing and writing as well as editing other writers' works, some of them award winning, for 25 plus years. As above, I have received awards for my own work including a magazine I published and edited.
