Rebecca helped me through the entire dissertation process. Her editing skills are superior and I sailed through my defense with flying colors. If you need an honest, hard-working editor who is always available, reassuring, and masterful, you need not look any further. I can't sing her praises enough!

I appreciate his attention to detail. He is informative and offers insight as to why he is making certain edits to aid in my growth and development as a writer. He provides constructive criticism when necessary while preserving my autonomy. He has been a valuable asset to my research writing. Noteworthy: Julian is not trained in scientific writing and has provided me with the most meaningful edits when compared to those who are trained in the field. The sign of a truly extraordinary editor. Highly recommend.

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.

Don is a considerate, accurate and helpful editor. I couldn't ask for better in thems of helpful objectivity as regards his hand on my copy. Addtionally, his supplemental comments are always useful and thought-provoking. Any writer with access to his talents is fortunate indeed.

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.

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

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 Steve’s 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.
