I cannot say enough about Stephen, he was great to work with from the beginning to the end. One thing that I appreciate about editors, is that they are responsive to hear feedback and that they can have a conversation to either convince or say “yeah, you are right,” and that is what Stephen is all about overall. He authored an excellent paper for me and asked the right questions to ensure he was addressing the right audience – you do not get this very often. I have other blogs to write and his sense of urgency and his eye to ensure the right audience is being targeted is outstanding. We can all write for a long time, but unless your editor knows your audience you cannot write a good blog. Stephen, fantastic job – and for those looking to get a good editor that will challenge you, then Stephen is your guy.

Stephen is very responsive and considerate - when he is editing my cover letters, he is thoughtful enough to ask me for the job listings I’m gonna submit to. He can finish the works very quick while of a high quality, and the price is really reasonable. I’d like to hire him again!

I asked Kismet Writing to assist me with a letter/document that I had draft to summit someone for a prestigious lifetime Scientific/Business award. The support I received from Stephen at Kismet Writing was world class. So kind, professional and responsive; I give them a 10 out of 10.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Discounts are available for students at MSU Denver.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    That depends on the service that they are looking for. In editing: if a client only needs line editing we will begin by discussing their target audience and goals for the piece. Proofreading is as simple as understanding if the client is in a location that prefers the U.K. or American spelling and grammar systems. It is in Ghostwriting and developmental editing in which full meetings are required. These services are in-depth and worth taking the time to hammer a great deal down before beginning.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Bachelors of English, Secondary Education. Publishing industry certificate expected in August 2019.
