Katie was able to help me look at my resume from a completely different perspective. It only proves to me that EVERYONE needs an editor, even editors! Looking forward to how she will craft my cover letter and LinkedIn page.
Andres is a keen editor for prose, fiction, and poetry. He knows the style manuals inside and out, and can hone the technical details of any written work. He is also a talented creative writing editor, sensitive to the writer's unique voice. Andres' edits are full of insight. He can see what the writer can't see yet, and will help you work your way to a finished piece with great care.
In 2010, when I was the associate editor of the Rittenhouse Square Revue, an arts and culture magazine, Josh Silver wrote an article about the history of artists and art galleries in the Old City section of Philadelphia. His detailed piece encompassed the art scene in the late 1960s, the birth of "First Friday" gallery nights in the early 1990s, and the current (as of 2010) gallery scene in Old City. It was evident that Josh had put quite a bit of effort into this article, and his value for thorough research was also apparent. Josh and I have kept in touch over the years, and I have continued to be impressed by his strong knowledge of and enthusiasm for history.
David had responded to a Craigslist post I had made requesting the services of a writer to formulate my artist biography for publicity purposes. Amidst a slew of amateur responses, the professional demeanor in which David initiated our correspondence made me realize he might be the one, but that he would probably be far beyond my budget. I had never had a proper artist biography before and was overwhelmed by the process, but David guided me through with a fool proof, open-ended survey that would help me describe my life experiences as well as my history as an artist in a succinct manner. He assured me that he would know how to edit my lengthy responses since the survey was the same one he'd become accustomed to using for his company as editor-in-chief of MUTE Magazine, and he was right! When I received the final product, I was astonished! David's turnaround time was so prompt, and he was welcoming of any additional edits I had in mind. When I braced myself for the cost of the bio, David surprised me once again by not bursting my budget, and even asking if he could feature me in his magazine! As I've gotten to know David since our chance meeting, I've learned that he is genuinely the professional that he exudes on a daily basis. By hiring him, you will get the quality you desire with no corners cut!
Carol was incredible. She not only copyedited my book manuscript quickly, but her execution was flawless. She took the time to understand and adapt to my writing style, demonstrated a superior command of all the rules of language usage, and maintained a professional yet friendly/down-to-earth demeanor throughout the project. Carol is a true pro. I would absolutely recommend her for any project, and I will definitely request to work with her again when the time comes. Thank you, Carol!
The best experience I've ever had working with a proof/copy reader. Superb in quality and professionalism, highly dependable. I only have good things to say about them!
She is a effective proofreader and editor. Got mine done in one day, and I love her work! Strongly recommended!
Moss edited my book Gladwyne S.W.A.T. I could not have done it without him. Moss is a great guy and a terrific editor. I would work with him again anytime!
I hired India to assist me with my first writing project. Our consultation and first session were a divine connection. She is attentive, great listener, and true to her word. She is a great writing coach with an eye and ear for guiding, supporting and encouraging you to success. I am excited about continuing our relationship. Fall book release to come!
It was my pleasure to work with Lorrie from approximately 2010 to 2013. Lorrie was working as a Technical Editor on protocols and clinical study reports and I was a study manager. Lorrie was always professional and kind in her interactions. Her writing recommendations were very helpful and appropriate. I would recommend Lorrie without hesitation.
Because I have seen many others who become confused when editing copy. The material sent to me because I feel it important to learn at least one new fact a day.

I am a Philadelphia-based writer and editor who will make your newsletters pop, your résumé seduce, and your creative writing captivate your audience.
My value is in my experience integrating many different disciplines. Most people are fairly narrow in their expertise and experience, which can be quite limiting. I can step back and see the entire problem that needs solving and then step in and address each one. Variety and the feeling I get from seeing a problem solved.
I'm available to edit your writing for grammar/spelling/tense/cohesion - whatever you need! I'm very thorough and will contact you if there is something that doesn't quite make sense, so I can verify that the ideas I have match what you're trying to say.
