One of the best professional writers I have come across. Born wordsmith. Knows exactly how to handle the tricky and delicate circumstances. Ability to re-frame anything to fit the desired result. Whether it is spinning a negative into a positive or writing with emotion to evoke a desired result, she is a master of all. My experience has been wonderful.
Mike did a great job with my resume. I was very happy with the end result! I needed a professional edge to update my outdated resume and he came through. Awesome work! Thank you!
The pictures turned out great! Perfect for a wedding -- a good balance of classic, timeless pictures with a few creative, artistic ones that I really liked. They captured the special moments very well. Pleasant and professional to work with and no complications. The album was also beautiful, and we got a DVD with all of the pictures.
It was a pleasure working with Alen. She was extremely helpful not only with editing but by offering many creative ideas.
I found Paul on Craigslist and it sure was my lucky day! He is creative, responsive, realistic about timeframes while being sensitive to what he calls "graphic design emergencies," His design really helped skyrocket attention to one of our Facebook infographics. A gem!
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.
Kate is super smart, such a joy to work with, and very professional. She is creative, but dialed-in. Great balance.
Kristen edited my PhD dissertation in psychology superbly. She strengthened the quality of my writing significantly, taught me a number of techniques to improve further, and worked extremely quickly and professionally. I would recommend Kristen to anyone looking for a great teacher, writer or editor.
Cynthia is one of the best, most empowering, most nurturing coaches I have ever had the honor of working with. Her wisdom runs as deep as her compassion, and I have felt heard, understood, and supported by her from the very first moment we talked. To me, she is a sort of Creative Midwife and Human Angel, helping me to break through years of paralyzing fear and self-doubt in order to manifest one of my oldest and dearest of dreams. Again and again, she has listened to me, encouraged me, and advocated for me in a way that gives me hope, more hope than I have ever felt before. If you're ready to change your life in a real way, contact Cynthia. Particularly for writers like myself, I can't imagine a more perfect and intuitive coach.
Danielle was my first English teacher at a language institute in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Her classes were fun, creative and motivational, especially because she always managed to provide us with the necessary tools to produce language in a meaningful and relevant way. Nowadays, I'm an English teacher myself and, without a doubt, that joyful experience I had when I was just 16 years old made me sure teaching English was what I wanted to do with my life. Needless to say, she was definitely a source of inspiration for me and I'm really happy to do what I do today. Thanks a lot for the classes, they were a lot of fun!
After seeing several books that Amie Hill has edited in our local bookstore, I asked her to review a memoir I'm working on. She provided excellent line editing and also provided some developmental ideas. While I'm still working on my book, I do recommend her services. She's both skillful and gentle and I believe other writers will find her editing enhances their work.
Ellie Schamber mentored me through my graduate prerequisite courses in Psychology as well as my Ph.D. dissertation. She also edited many of my papers and the dissertation. Ellie is a very good writer, and she did an excellent job of both guiding me and editing the manuscript. The dissertation was approved and praised by the academic dean for its writing as well as the content. We are now collaborating on a book, and I am very pleased with her ability to understand abstract ideas and articulate them clearly. Ellie always came on time, over the period of several years, and provided me with the highest quality work.
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 Steves 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.
I have had Colleen's help in editing two very different projects: a business proposal and a website, so this is almost two reviews in one. Both were done VERY well - she is a strong technical writer with an eye for professional writing. The website, which was to promote an event I created, was completely different. I wanted it to be really fun and informative. Colleen is creative with an awesome sense of humor and she was perfect for the job. She took my dull content and turned it into something that was actually fun to read. Versatile, fast and smart. I strongly recommend her for your editing or writing needs.
Is the primary ghost writer for a new book on my successful migraine treatments. It is not quite done, but feedback from others is very positive.
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
I have more than a decade of professional writing experience, specializing mainly in the Business-to-Business sector, with a special emphasis on the technology industry. I spent 8 years in public relations agency work in the US and UK, drafting bylined articles and case studies which have been published in B2B and trade magazines and journals in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, South Africa, and UAE. Translations of my work have been published in France, Germany, Belgium, Poland, Finland, Sweden, Spain, Portugal, China, Singapore, and Japan. I also possess several years of experience in general marketing, preparing content for newsletters, email blasts, websites, brochures, catalogs, social media posts, and other marketing avenues. My clients have mostly been in the technology sector - from startups to multi-billion dollar enterprises - but I have also worked with industries ranging from legal services to cleaning and hygiene to adventure travel. The process I employ ensures that I have adequate information to complete the job before starting it, whether the client provides that or I conduct my own background research. I am also a very detail-oriented copy editor. Transparent pricing is offered, preferably by the word but hourly rates can also be negotiated.
I specialize in "Crisis Technical Writing," that is writing a manual when you have to get one out, either pdf or in print. I work well under pressure. I am not interested in full time work.
We provide fast and creative (or less-so if you prefer) copy writing -- email, websites, landing pages, in-app messaging, press releases and more.
I am a WGA -west writer-editor-producer who has worked and taught professionally n fiction, non-fiction, and print. I have too many examples to list. But, if you are serious about desiring professionally quality work, I will forward my web site and samples.
Web content, product requirements, college essay and creative consultation are offered from an experienced, dedicated and reliable professional. I've worked in digital publishing, real estate and financial services and bring a creative eye and compelling voice to any project. On the professional side, I have over 7 years in product management -- user stories are second nature. I'm also well-versed in product documentation, knowledge base creation, and SEO blogging. I'm famous with my colleagues for excellent product names and killer taglines. Outside the workplace, I've written a novel that found literary representation, query letters, quality resumes and cover letters and consulted on college essays that gained entrance to UC Berkeley, UCLA, U of Michigan, Columbia and more. I'm versatile and energetic and just beginning to build an independent portfolio.
