Emily provided two complete edits to my first book. She was professional, timely and very reasonable in her fees. She not only provided invaluable grammatical insights--she also gave me great insights on the overall readability of certain topics. I will use Emily should I write another book and would recommend her to anyone. She is a consummate professional and encouraged me throughout the entire process.

Emily is a concienscious, professional, and extremely responsive editor. She is always available and even when she thought she was not going to be available for a while due to potential jury duty, she lined up a temporary substitute editor for us, just in case! I would not hestitate to recommend Emily to anyone for any editing project. She is very fast and efficient. Her work is exemplary. Excellent customer service!Apr 11, 2011Verified
Emily Kazmierski edited my manuscript and Im very pleased with the result. She is knowledgeable and pays careful attention to detail. Her grammatical corrections were invaluable and any suggestions she made for content adjustments were very helpful. What I appreciated most is how careful she was to maintain my voice.Dec 17, 2013
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association because I want to continually improve my editing and writing skills. I often read materials they provide regarding my field. I also take the time to read material written by good writers so that I can learn about various writing styles, improve my vocabulary, and stay current in my knowledge of the written word.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always loved reading, and I have always loved editing. I remember playing an educational computer game as a child and finding a misspelled word. I was so excited. When it was time for me to pick a major in college, English and Creative Writing were the only topics that truly interested me so that is the path I chose. As I have grown as an editor, I find that I feel very satisfied when I can help writers channel their thoughts into written content that speaks to the reader.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?When a writer is looking for an editor to collaborate with on any type of written material, the writer should look for an editor who will give the amount of feedback the writer needs and wants. For example, the writer may need someone to do a basic proofread of the material, or he or she may want someone to help with content organization, flow, and more in depth editing. I always ask my clients before I begin working how much feedback they want, and I give them exactly what they ask for, to the best of my ability.
