Caitlin Looby provided editing services for both manuscripts and proposals and was instrumental in improving my scientific writing. Additionally, Caitlin helped me prepare for tenure-track faculty interviews by editing my job talk presentations. I have been fortunate to have been able to work with Caitlin, and would definitely hire her again with my next important writing project. As an editor, Caitlin has provided valuable substantive feedback and insightful suggestions for improving a draft or crafting the message. I strongly recommend Caitlin Looby to all my colleagues seeking editing services.
Being a first time author, Christopher Cervelloni had a work load ahead editing my manuscript. He scheduled me within a few weeks after my request for editing and finished it quickly. Christopher's constructive three page commentary explaining his editing process, suggesting better ways to assemble sentence structure and develop content demonstrated his skill in helping me achieve a remarkably improved manuscript. When doubting my novice writing abilities, Christopher's positive encouragement improved my mindset toward one of I can do it. He listens well, is to the point and professional. I will definitely use Christopher for future projects and highly recommend him to others. Vicki Largen Mauer
Mr. Gromer edited several clips of a baby bear in the wild. He located the music meant for this IPhone footage, stabilized and put together the perfect wildlife video. I am very happy with the end results.
Amber Byers at Tadpole Press is lovely to work with! Efficient, detail-oriented, and thorough, she does comprehensive copy editing that results in a well-polished final draft. Amber not only helped tremendously with my finer details, but also pointed out consistency issues in my story and characters, as well as places where the narrative was confusing and needed re-working. I loved her approach – reading with her careful editing eye but also from a reader’s perspective gave my finished manuscript an excellent flow!
Charlotte edited my latest manuscript, preparing it for publication and adding all the technical details I wouldn't have thought to include. She didn't make blind assumptions about my content, but pointed out areas that might need more clarification and let me do that. Which is what makes a great editor!

Once I interviewed and hired Zig for an editing project on a book proposal, he got to work with clear and concise communication. He is accessable by phone or email and his editing his skills are excellent.
Incredibly informative and helpful. Margaret provided excellent feedback and was constructive in her editing. My essay was much more cohesive because of her editing, but still allowed my own voice to show through. I would highly recommend her for any writing or editing assistance!
When the time came for my daughter to apply to professional schools, we wanted an expert writer and editor to teach her how to polish the required essay she had written to accompany her application. We hired Savan Associates, and couldn't have been happier with the results. Savan Associates worked back-and-forth by email with my daughter, had her rewrite her essay three times to incorporate information missing from the prior drafts, and provided questions and comments on each draft to help her fill in any remaining blanks. Then Savan Associates coached her on how to condense that information into a final draft. Not only was her final essay concise, dynamic, and jammed with pertinent details, all within the maximum character count, but it precisely captured my daughter, her background and experience, her love of animals, and the reasons she should be accepted to vet school. Most valuable was how Savan Associates educated my daughter on writing and editing. This tutoring process not only enabled her to refine her essay into the product she desired for her veterinary school application, but also helped her improve her written communication skills for the long-term. Best of all, my daughter was accepted into five vet schools, including one of the top-ranked schools in the country. We know her excellent grades, GRE scores, and personal interviews had much to do with her acceptances, but we have no doubts her essay helped distinguish her from the competition. S. L. Z. Orange, CA

**Send me a page or two or your work. I'll edit it for free. That's the best way to pick your writer/editor -- see firsthand what they do and how they do it.** I provide writing, editing, and writing instruction services to businesses, universities, government agencies, and non-profits nationwide. Ive done work for dozens of marketing firms, Unisys Corporation, U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Air Force, CH2M HILL, Prentice Hall, LexisNexis, HP, Webroot, VMware, and Adobe, and Ive written and edited corporate, government, technical, and marketing documentation throughout my career.

I earned a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, Language, and Research from the University of Virginia. My GRE Verbal test score is in the 99th percentile. Why share a GRE score? Because it assesses ability in language usage, grammar, and punctuation. I know my stuff. I live in the grand and gorgeous state of Colorado, and in my free time I work on my novel, travel extensively in the US (47 states and counting), travel as much as possible around the world, and bike around Denver on one of my fabulous cruisers. Unless my bikes have been stolen. Theyre stolen a lot.
