I am a non native English speaker. I was struggling with my comprehensive (thesis) paper. Laura helped me brain storm ideas for my paper, gave me constructive feedback, and helped me edit the paper. She spent a lot of one on one time with me and constantly stayed in touch with me. Laura is very caring and genuine and it shows in her work. She wasn't quite familiar with my topic (I am in healthcare), but she went above and beyond trying to understand what I was writing about so that she could help me best way possible. She is a great editor and a very sincere person. I am graduating this June and I may not need her help for academic papers, but I will always come to her for any writing and editing help. I will recommend her to everyone!
Shelly herself is an excellent writer, both technical and creative. She knows the rules of conventional English (says the survivor of eight years of Catholic school grammar, syntax, and sentence diagraming!) Even more important to me, as a veteran sixth grade teacher who has watched her as a parent-volunteer writing teacher, school librarian, play director, and copy editor, she can engage large or small groups of kids and inspire even the most reluctant writer to pick up a pencil and start writing! She has a wonderful sense of humor, which shows up in her own writing, and often in her students'. Additionally, she is professional, reliable, and intelligent enough to critically evaluate/edit college-level, business, and professional writing.
I am so pleased to have Alexandra as a contributing writer for RAIN Magazine, an online publication dedicated to providing uplifting and inspiring stories. As Editor in Chief, I see many submissions, and Alexandra's work is impeccable. Additionally, her words of wisdom have helped so many of our readers overcome some of life's most challenging obstacles. I appreciate her commitment to excellence -- We're lucky to have such a great writer working with us. Daisy Rain Martin
One of the best line editors and content advisors I've ever worked with, and I've been writing and publishing for thirty years. Very knowledgeable.
I really enjoyed working with Peter. He did a fantastic job helping write my business plan. I will hire him again for my next project.
Our political consulting firm hired John to write a variety of sample letters to the editor in support of a ballot measure. He grasped the facts accurately and turned out 15 letters within a few days. He got the job done quickly and I was very happy with the results.
Sara is a wonderful editor who always is very precise but gives reasons for her edits. She also gives great advice when sometimes I'm more verbose than I need to be. Really recommend using her services!
Janice Patton - who is the person behind "Jlee Editing Services" - is an extraordinary person - both professionally and personally. During our project, Janice possessed enormous professionalism, courtesy, responsibility and dependability; and most of all Janice was extremely patient and a great listener to all of my questions and concerns. You would be very lucky and fortunate to have Janice Patton from Jlee Editing Services to take on your project. Her experience in editing and her skill level is remarkable, but most importantly- she has a very positive and supportive ATTITUDE during the collaboration process with her client. Sincerely, Michael Bayard - Very Satisfied Customer
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 Steves 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.
