Dr. Kovan was an absolute amazing editor who was very professional but also very friendly. Dr. Kovan was easy to work with and talk to. I was always able to get in touch with her and develop a plan for the editing of my dissertation. Dr. Kovan was very flexible with my deadlines even when I asked for some extremely quick turn edits of my dissertation. Dr. Kovan is an expert in APA formatting as well as scholarly writing. I plan to use Dr. Kovan for all my future published papers, resumes, and scholarly writing. Dr. Kovan is top notch, professional, detailed, and someone you can talk to. She is the editor you want to choose. Andrew Clayton Doctoral Candidate

Charles Koppelman knows how to use the art and language of film to tell a compelling story, and brings his intelligence and creativity to everything he does. He tailors his approach to the topic at hand and the audience, knows how to select and get the best out of actors and interview subjects, and assembles a crack team of highly professional editors, camera people, sound technicians and the like to produce a beautiful package. He brings a Hollywood sensibility to his corporate projects, and also has mastered the documentary medium. He offers a full-service firm whose expertise extends beyond film to include graphic design, marketing and more.

Julian is a thorough editor with a keen eye for detail. He has edited everything from essays to manuscripts for me and has taken my work from good to great. He is proficient at syntactical and grammatical feedback, but he has offered developmental and global insights on my work that ultimately made it publishable. I am always recommending Julian and his writing services to my friends, and I will continue to use Julian for all my writing projects in the future.

Working with Jim was a blessing and a delight. He took my rather dense wording on a new page I had written for my business website and very quickly whittled it down to its essence in a way that would have readers wanting to learn more. He is impeccable with his word—he does what he says he's going to do on time and within the agreed-upon budget. And he’s an incredible editor. I loved almost every one of his suggested edits and incorporated them throughout my site. I've used him twice now as my business grows and I want to continually make my website as inviting as possible. I believe one of the reasons my business has grown to be so successful over the last two years has to do with the way Jim helped me frame my coaching services to let people know what I do while encouraging them to contact me for more information. Thank you, Jim, for your responsiveness, your intuitive and extremely helpful insights into what can be lost in words but gained in persuasive strength, and your kindness as a collaborator. I look forward to working with you again soon." - Anastasia Frank, Relationship Coach, owner of www.AnastasiaFrank.com

    Due to my diminishing knowledge of English grammar, I searched the Internet for an editor to help navigate the murky byways of periods, commas, verb endings and sentence structure. Thankfully I came upon Steve Dulas, a former copy editor for a local county newspaper in the San Francisco Bay area. I couldn't be more pleased with Steve’s work. Not only does he have a lifetime career in editing and turning out “clean” copy, but I found he also carefully reads for content and offers creative and sometimes just common sense advice to look at vague or weak areas so that the narrative flows and is coherent. This advice is always given as a kind suggestion; Steve is never demeaning or heavy handed. Steve reviewed half of my book (45,000 words) in a timely two week period, sending me one copy with the changes and yet another copy with creative thoughts in specific places. It really was an outstanding job. I can happily give Steve a five star reference and am certain anyone would be as pleased as I was to find him. I plan to use him again.

    I have worked with Jeff for the last three years, and he is, without a doubt, one of the best people I have ever had the opportunity to work with. As his supervisor, I worked with him closely, and he consistently delivered products that were high quality. He is always open to feedback, and embodied the voice of our organization in person and via communications (digital, social, etc.). He is passionate about social justice, education, the arts, and was a champion and ally for our students. His playfulness and professionalism made him an invaluable asset to our organization.
