Very happy with the copy editing of my book. Mike helped me better understand what my common pitfalls are and greatly improved the readability factor of the document. He was very communicative throughout the process and is well-versed in Scrivener. Looking forward to putting this out in the world!
Shelly Henley has helped me with a variety of writing/editing projects: resumes, proof-reading, essay editing, cover letters. She is particularly gifted with writing persuasive letters and proposals, I think because she listens carefully, and asks the right questions. She is thorough, fanatical about spelling and grammar, and always completes the assigment in record time. She is a very effective writer/editor! Maren MacAdam Attorney Sacramento, CA
Alen Nye and (sem)antics editing services did an amazing job! I received rapid responses to my inquiries and emails, and an incredible professional and thoughtful editing service. I couldn't have been more pleased. Highly recommended!
Julian Esteban Torres Lopez responded to my query promptly and with professionalism. I'm an English teacher (secondary language arts), and wanted another set of eyes on a large project. His experience in the private sector and also his education made him a good fit for my editing needs.
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.
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.
I was on a short deadline and Brody was very mindful of that and made herself available even on the weekend to make sure I got my paper in on time. She went above and beyond with her edits and even did research on my behalf. I highly recommend her!
Susan is great to work with. She listens well, is patient and works to incorporate your ideas into the resume. Another thing I like about her is that she has a way of stating things that is catchy and fresh rather than the typically sterile "corporate" manner of summarizing one's work history. This was especially helpful in my case, because my employment history is choppy and I am recently getting back into the professional workforce after a long layoff.
My work is thorough, reliable, with lots of kind suggestions for improvement. I can generally easily bond and resonate with what the author is doing, but if I can't, I don't take the job. I understand non-traditional as well as traditional fiction. I'm a best-selling author, and won a Gold Medal for a novel recently from Readers Favorite. I have over 200 short stories in magazines and anthologies, as well as nearly 100 poems and countless articles. Students in the classes I teach in fiction writing are pleased, and so are my manuscript editing clients, including according to their anonymous formal evaluations through the schools. I made a Welcome Audio for potential Thumbtack clients which you can listen to on the homepage of OWA (Online Writing Academy) lined above.
Writer, editor, and project manager with over 12 years of publishing experience. Services include web copywriting, proofreading, developmental editing, and project management.
I provide clear, meticulous editing of written texts, e.g., documents, papers, articles, books, etc.
I offer professional, high-quality editing. I have more than 10 years of experience.
I have been writing for years, and this allows me to write flexibly based on subject matter. My background in fiction writing means that I can write non-fiction from a variety of perspectives, in a myriad of voices, and for diverse purposes. My love of reading, and passion for storytelling, mixed with an interest in marketing means that I can edit fiction from the perspective of a reader, with respect to the writer's process, and explain the relationship between presentation of the story and the reader's perspective to the writer. This combination and holistic approach to editing can help turn a good story great. My familiarity with fiction editing means that I can edit articles, essays, and assorted non-fiction works and shorter fiction with rapid speed that also does not take away from the quality of thought and attention to detail. Whatever you need written, I can write. Whatever you need me to edit, I can hone. My goal is to work with my clients to realize their vision.
Over the past decade, I have held a variety of professional writing and editing roles, from newspaper reporting and freelance article writing to content marketing for the world's largest professional network. I've also had the opportunity to do French-English and English-French translation for individuals and companies. My core competencies are writing, editing, proofreading, research and translation. I have a long track record of quickly turning around news, features and marketing copy on strict deadlines, creating copy that drives traffic to websites. I also have professional experience in SEO writing, press release writing and social media marketing. I'm looking for opportunities to help create compelling, informative content that helps you or your business grow.
Write, edit and proofread marketing, sales and PR materials for wineries and other businesses, and consult on brand positioning and messaging issues.
I really haven't checked out many of the works by others who do what I do. I believe all competent writers who train their skills on helping others, attempt their very best. Some are better than others and all have a different perspective on related experience, format and nuance. If a client has a question on my choice of words to descibe their experience, I work with that client to help the final version sing.
Welcome to my content driven world...an exploration into the vastness of good content. Each time I write, be it for myself, for another company or when it comes to curating a simple message, I try to push the limit of what the words can do. I like to refer to myself as a contentpreneur because I love to find never before used word combinations that have the potential of being the next viral catch phrase. It's what makes me excited to work with content in any capacity. When it comes to writing about a new topic, I go at it head on. There is no territory I fear to tread on when it comes to writing. I feel confident that I can write creatively, intelligently and simply about any topic or subject. I came across a quote recently that read, "The things you are passionate about are not random. They are your calling." Content, writing and copy editing, I strongly believe, are my calling. I am out to make an editorial difference.
I am passionate about writing and editing. As a student, I worked in the writing center at my college and aided many peers by reviewing their papers and projects, and improving their grammar. I hope to one day edit film scripts. I'd be happy to help you out!
I provide a unique point of view to everything I work on and I treat every project as if it were my own. I strive for perfection.
I am a published author. My original book was over 3000 pages so I had to cut it down to a series. I have two books out and working on the third one (all from the original book.) I find more content each time I edit so I suspect a long series. I have always had a passion for writing and can usually write 'out of nowhere' which means I can take an idea and run with it. I am best with long papers but that doesn't mean I can't help with short ones. I am fluent in Spanish so I can translate documents or make new ones from scratch. I have also edited other author's work for compensation. I am also well versed in Photoshop if you have graphic design needs for your documents. I have done many brochures, manuals, etc. in my career and I find art is just as fun as writing.
