Lisa-Beth proof-read a script for me. She is an amazing proofreader who went beyond the call of duty and got my script back to me a week earlier than expected. Thanks Lisa-Beth! You are awesome!

I had a wonderful experience with Temi. I consulted with multiple high profile editors for my capstone project, and she stood out the most to me. It is vital to hire an editor that is both professional and empathetic because the process of attaining a doctoral degree is stressful enough on its own.

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

Skip took on a job that was pretty big and what made matters worse, a person that had just neglected the fundamentals of writing. It's not that I don't know them, I was just too lazy to apply them the way they should be. He reminded me of it. I asked him to be brutally honest and he was. The wonderful thing about him, he later pointed out the good things I was doing right and eventually made my confidence skyrocket. The job your asking me to describe is not only Skip helping me with the book I am working on, but him guiding me and restoring my confidence to get me back in the fight after being knocked down by life, people and dare I say editors and publishers. He made me realize putting forth my best effort in a world that is so competitive is just too important to forget. You ask what went well with Skip? Everything, but what stood out the most was his honesty and clarity of various situations and problems. The quality of his work and guidance is excellent and I couldn't ask for any better advisor. Nothing could improve my experience with him, that's how impressed I am with him. Thanks Skip and I look forward to continuing to work with you. Sincerely, Jeffrey L. Ivory

Stephanie did an excellent job proofreading my script. Her understanding of grammar and syntax is impressive, and she has the eyes of a first-rate editor.

Kevin keeps it real, really love his work on projects. Responds so quickly I feel like he's superhuman. Started with editing my vlogs but now I outsource often for marketing videos for my company. Thank you Kevin!

I worked with Emily Kazmierski for 3 years. We have both grown in the field of editing. She is an accomplished editor and writer. In fact, she trained me and was very patient and knowledgeable. She possesses all the techniques and skills for editing and writing, and her turnaround time is outstanding. Her attention to detail (especially comma splices) is exceptional, and her ability to stay organized is excellent. Emily is a true talent in the field of editing and writing, and anyone who has worked with her knows of her gifts. She brings a great deal to the table, and I believe that she is the finest editor and writer around.

Celia copy-edited my manuscript as I was preparing to go on submission to literary agents. Her work was fast and extremely thorough, catching not only typos and grammatical mistakes, but also helping to maintain style consistency. I have since signed with a literary agent (with that same manuscript)! I would definitely recommend Celia to anyone looking for a key editorial eye to give your manuscript a boost of professionalism!

Jaz is my go-to editor when it comes to proofreading, editing, and story notes. I've worked with her on novels, applications, TV scripts, and even important emails. Breaking Jaz down: Proofreading: I'm dyslexic, so I NEED a good proofreader. Jaz doesn't let a single typo or grammatical error slide. Editing: She simply has an editor's mind. Time and time again she has tweaked my work to make it more concise and easier to read. Story notes: Jaz simply has a gift with story. She is able to pinpoint major problems and offer solutions that can really take your work to a professional level. She is also stellar with character and character voice/dialogue too. Jaz is always punctual with deadlines and a joy to work with. I couldn't recommend her more!

I am a film director and film scripts and treatments must be perfect and for that I rely on Patricia Rust, who hits them out of the park every time. With millions of dollars on the line, I cannot afford mistakes. Not only does she edit them to a T, she can rewrite them to make them the best that they can be.

Amy is all about focus. That's what I gained from working with her on several different writing projects: a better understanding of how to focus my work. Amy cares about the unity and clarity of the final product, and she's passionate and thorough in her guidance toward those ends. With Amy, you're asked to consider what each sentence adds to the whole. She hates waste and has a keen eye for it. Through working with her, I've developed a better sense of writing as communication - how to get an idea across, how different readers will interpret different words and concepts, how editors and publishers will judge writing in ways the novice writer might not be prepared for. I think of myself as a more astute writer for Amy's guidance, with a clearer understanding of the place my writing can have in the world. But the best thing about working with Amy is getting to discuss writing with someone who cares about the craft in a more than superficial way. Amy isn't just a teacher; she's a scholar and a stylist, a creator and a critic. Her knowledge and interests cover a wide range of topics and disciplines, and she brings that rounded background to bear on each project she takes on. I'm lucky to have had her in my corner.

I asked Andrew to edit my script. He was awesome. He checked and corrected the basics (grammar, punctuation, and spelling). He also provided really thoughtful and productive feedback on the story and story structure. His feedback will make make my script better. Andrew's services were absolutely worth the investment.

Frederik has done a couple of things for my wife and I. The first was giving us some help with our wedding ceremony back in 2007. His writing lent inspiration to our day and was a nice touch. In the last year Frederik has helped my wife with her book (www.destination-wedding-book.com) by being both editor and designer. His ideas were unique and helped to create a brilliant final product which we are very happy with.

Liz Cole is an incredible proofer. She is thorough, extremely quick, and professional. I trust her with not just proofing my scripts but also with story notes and punch ups. I highly recommend Liz for any proofing jobs.

Adam Gropman has written extensively for LA Weekly on a big variety of news and cultural topics. As one of the editors who has worked with him most often, I can say that he's a wonderful guy, an excellent reporter and good writer, so easy to work with, and just a topnotch pro. I think his greatest talent is that he really grasps topics and issues quickly, even if he hasn't dealt with the topic before. He's lots of fun, too, but definitely a grownup.

Kelly has been fantastic to work with! She proofread my script quickly and gave me incredibly helpful and clear notes. I’m working on a new draft now and will certainly continue to use Kelly for feedback. She is communicative, professional, pleasant, and, most importantly, good at what she does. I can’t recommend her enough for your story proofreading needs!
