To start, I and terrible past experiences with editors. A friend convinced me to review Thumbtack for an editor, and I hired Ellie to edit my dissertation. At first, I was skeptical. I did not want to spend hard earned money on a writing critique from a stranger when I knew I could do it myself. I felt the if I hired someone that editor would merely find grammatical mistakes and email my project back to me. Ellie was different; she was amazing. She approached my project as a learning opportunity and not just a grammatical essay. Her comments were straight to the point, and she gave me insight from a veteran professor's point of view. Ellie even offered to prepare me for my Proposal Defense. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking help with a thesis, dissertation or other writing projects.

They've edited six or seven books for me and, unlike editors from larger publishing houses, working with them has been a refreshing delight.

I went to Jillian when I needed help applying for Colleges. English was always my weakest subject, and I was incredibly anxious to begin writing my submission essays. A friend of mine had been bragging about a tutor he used, and told me that she was also an editor. As soon as I contacted Jillian, I knew I would like working with her. She is committed, efficient and incredibly smart. With Skype sessions and a few in person meetings, Jillian not only helped me get through my essays, but she has improved my all around English Proficiency. Jillian offers a personalised and professional service, and is profoundly knowledgable about English and Literature. To this day, I return to Red Pen Wench whenever I need help or advice on any of my work, and I continue to recommend her to my friends and family. I couldn't speak higher of her.

John Stickler polished my book of more than 93,00 words and 352 pages. I was very satisfied with his work, which turned friendly and even he helped find a publisher and arranged with my representative in Congress to have a written opinion. His price was also affordable than others'. Actually, I gave him two more stories (for children) to polish and correct.

"Frederik helped me immensely with the writing I required to promote an art exhibition. While still using my own words, Frederik's great insight enabled him to pick out the most salient points to highlight. He then created a cohesive story, and smoothed out the tongue twisters. Easy to work with and intelligent – he creates compelling content. I highly recommend him."

Emily is an excellent editor. She is able to edit my writing to clearly and eloquently communicate exactly what I am intending to say, but in better writing. When she sends revisions, I appreciate that she allows me as the writer to take her suggestions or not. I will be using Emily as my editor in the future.

Duke edited my epic fantasy series of over 1 million words. My publisher had me cut down the word count because it was to much to publish and Duke helped me with the process. I couldn't have completed my series without him. He worked exclusively with me for six months to help me get my series how I wanted it. A master editor and ghostwrite (hell, the parts he helped me write were better than my own stuff!) and I wouldn't work with anybody but Duke. Thanks, man.
