The Edit Guru did a great job editing my graduate admissions writing prompts. She helped me see the view point of the admissions officer and helped me clean up language which was too specialized or 'industry-specific' -- I will definitely reach out again if I have new writing projects.

I first met Pavita during the shared experience of a writing and editing apprenticeship. Pavita edited almost every article submission that I wrote, and she soon became one of the few that I trusted to edit my work, as her suggestions and feedback were stellar and spot-on. After benefitting from Pavita's excellent editing skills for many months on end (and hopefully for the rest of our days) with my own personal writing, I wound up hiring her on as a freelance writer for the company that I work for—she is also a fantastic writer. Pavita always generates quality material—and if it isn't exactly right the first time, she immediately receives and integrates the feedback given, and churns out exactly what we are looking for. We give her a wide array of assignments that requires being able to write in multiple voices, styles, and lengths—and Pavita hits it out of the park each and every time. I highly recommend Pavita for anyone in need of an editor. You will be lucky to receive the benefit of her editing skills! Thanks, Pavita!

Very happy with the copy editing of my book. Mike helped me better understand what my common pitfalls are and greatly improved the readability factor of the document. He was very communicative throughout the process and is well-versed in Scrivener. Looking forward to putting this out in the world!

We hired Anna & Jonathan for my daughter's graduation party. They worked tirelessly at the event and did not even take a single break. Later they did excellent editing and created outstanding pictures. I highly recommend them for your next event! Thanks Anna & Jonathan

Ann was thorough and helped me meet a quick deadline with my dissertation. I was appreciative that she caught all the little APA mistakes that I had overlooked. I would highly recommend Ann for editing.

My company hired Koppelman & Associates for a corporate event video. We were looking for professionalism and reliability, and Koppelman & Associates did not dissapoint. Our event took more time than anticipated, and the final video required detailed editing. Koppelman & Associates’s service throughout the process was thorough, and resulted in a great video at a very reasonable price. We will definitely use his service again.

Michael is an outstanding book editor. I've been working with him on my manuscript for the past two years. He excels in the intangibles, with terrific suggestions about improving a story's pace, character development and plot. So often when Michael suggests something, a lightbulb goes off in my head and I think: Of course! Why didn't I think of that? Beyond his uncanny ability to see where my story should be going, he also detects what's missing. This is a trait any writer wants to have in an editor--an ability to identify what needs to be added or expanded upon. Beyond his professional editing skills, Michael is consistently prompt and turns drafts around well within his promised timeframe. Michael is not only a great editor but he can, if needed, be a coach as well. He knows what his writers are going through, because he's a writer himself. He has been important to me in his coaching role, because he's helped me plow through the rough spots that are inevitable in completing something as complicated as a novel. He becomes a partner in getting the job done, and his words of encouragement and hope make all the difference.

I have been working on my book for almost five years. Finally I have it at a place ready for editing. Samantha is currently working on my drafts. She is nice person who actually wants to help. She is not in the project just because its a job. I feel like she actually is interested in my work. I did not just want to hire a mechanical editor who plops out my work without caring. Samantha is someone that I feel cares and wants to actually help. She is a good pick.

I wrote two books with Editoro, one fiction, one non-fiction, and what they gave to each project was invaluable. Both were complex works that required not only the standard line editing, but much more importantly (for me) was the extensive content editing that transformed both of the works from being good ideas into being exactly what I had hoped they would become. I freely admit I could never have it done on my own. Oh it was grueling! I highly doubt I could have done it with any ordinary editor. Worth every cent --easily-- but far more importantly it was worth every re-think, every re-write, and every gut-wrenching exercise to dig deeper. Far more than an editor, for me, they were an editorial team, plus coaches. I couldn't rate them higher. I'm working on book #3 and will be sending it to them once it's ready. Don't sign on however unless you intend to work! Paul Bryan Roach ("The End" and "Citizen Surgeon")

Mary Rakow is my cup of tea. Her editing of my manuscript was encouraging and practical. Working with her has helped my ideas flow, and I'm excited and engaged after a long period of being stuck. Mary 'sees' where a work needs to go and is supportive of both me and my writing.

Ruth was an invaluable resource proofreading and editing my latest writing project. She is smart, listens well, and patient. The quality of her work is excellent, she is professional, responsive, and turned things around for me when promised (ahead of schedule, actually). She was a calming influence and an excellent sounding board as I discussed ideas with her. I would, without reservation, recommend her to others.

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.
