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.

Pavita edited an article I was working on for an on-line publication. Her work was quick, efficient and clear. She is knowledgeable on rules of grammar, as well as how to create writing that will capture readers' attention.

Charles Koppelman is a pro. He offers a turnkey service -- helping with hands-on conception, script development, pre-production, shooting and editing in a conscientious way that capitalizes on his considerable experience with both promotional and documentary-style production. He is responsive, easy to work with, and delivers a polished finished product. I would definitely work with him again.

Textrous was responsive and even checking in with me more than I checked in with her. She gave great comments and formatting tips. I was very thankful to have Textrous editing my thesis (APA format) through my own stress.

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.

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.

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.

Jackie was able to help me with the typos in my book. I am dyslexic, so I will never be able to catch every typos, but she did and she turned around 272 pages of work in about a week. It was amazing. I have always wanted to get my book on the market, and I couldn't do it without her. She was also able to walk me through the self-publishing, which was another valuable skill that she has. It was great to work with Jackie, and I am writing more and more, so I will use her in the future as well.
