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.

I had a great experience! I had never used an editor before but needed to have an extra set of eyes go through my dissertation before I submitted it to my committee. I was so thankful to find Textrous Editing. She was able to get my paper back to me in a few days. I felt that she went through my paper with a fine tooth comb!

If there's one thing I love about Marian, it's the clarity of her voice as a writer. Read anything she's written on her blog, and she basically leaps off the page. Marian helped me create copy and messaging for my own brand, and she helped me to find my own authentic voice as a business owner. On top of that, she's a pleasure to work with and an excellent editor. I can't recommend her highly enough!

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.

Relieved, that's how I felt once I began working with Michael. I knew my story was solid, but needed help. From the beginning his feedback was invaluable. In written comments he helped me develop stronger three-dimensional characters, tighten the tone, pace, tension, and that all-important narrative voice. After his initial assessment I did the first of three rewrites. Each version was better. Michael was spot-on with suggestions of where I needed to restructure a scene or reflect a character's underlying motivation. He was so helpful with the big picture, offering specific examples and suggestions for how to improve. Honest but tactful, Michael was easy to work with, completely professional in reviewing the work and getting back to me in a reasonable period of time. I've worked with other editors and been less satisfied. Michael created a feeling of partnership on the project. I have no doubt my book is better because of our work, and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again

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

    Jacquie is great. Having her available during my job search made the process so much less stressful. She helped edit my resume, condense and streamline my cover letter, connected me to people she knew in the industry, wrote referral letters and gathered useful feedback regarding my applications. She has a ton of insight and wisdom on how to beef up your resume, how to interpret interview feedback and how to stay grounded & motivated throughout your search. Working with her felt like having a cheerleader, editor, mentor and agent rolled into one awesome package, and I would absolutely recommend that anyone looking to switch jobs, enter the workforce or change careers utilize her services.

    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.

    Erik and I worked together on a commercial for my old employer, Asian Food Grocer. He and I planned the commercial from the beginning- writing, staging shots, recruiting actors. At every step he was professional, resourceful, and exceptionally creative. The filming of the commercial went smoothly, and what really blew me away were his skills as an editor. And even though it was my project that I came to him with, he put in more hours than I did, and worked far beyond what I ever expected or asked for. I am incredibly happy with his work, and I hope his future projects only get bigger and better
