Several years ago, my company contracted with Mark to produce HD corporate-branded videos for The Register's Top Workplaces in Iowa program. Video shooting, production and editing fell into this contract. On site shoots with business leaders were handled tactfully while Mark offered coaching and a sense of humor to the shoot. Good overall quality and partnership.

Lauren has edited for me before and I'll keep her forever. No one I've ever worked has been as intelligent, or as professional and caring. I have no complaints at all. She is direct in her communication and doesn't sugar coat a thing, but is thoughtful and kind when editing, opting for constructive criticism rather than berating. She is a good as she looks. She's read everything I've written, both published and not, and has incredible insight into where I want to go and how to help me get there. I just can't say enough. She handles my uploads to Amazon and offers invaluable advice on things like cover design and interior concept. Be smart, pick this young woman to help you on your publishing/editing journey. She is that good.

Judy edited my lengthy and complicated dissertation with no problems. I can sum up her excellent work as being "on task, on time, and on budget." I have no reservations recommending her to others.

LaVonne is amazing and incredibly helpful if your writing needs to be strengthened. I am a Master's Level student who has been working on my Masters Thesis through National University online program. Needless to say without LaVonne and her attention to my learning style, I would be struggling more than necessary. If you have any writing anxiety, foundational writing problems, help overcoming a negative response from a professor LaVonne will bring you through to the other side. LaVonne responds quickly and provides immediate feedback on your writing. LaVonne makes herself available and restores your confidence through her professionalism and compassion. I highly recommend LaVonne to other students and others who are in need of editing and honest feedback about the written work. Respectfully, Lorelyn J. Hambelton

I was lucky enough to meet Eric through a colleague and boy, am I glad I did! Not only has he helped me write copy for my work publications, but has edited my personal manuscripts, and acted as tutored for my children from high school into college. His insights have certainly made me a better writer. Also, Eric has stepped in more than once to carry on writing projects when I was unable to; while maintaining the voice and tone of the piece seamlessly. Plus, his sense of humor and unique ability to succinctly capture the essence of an idea or fleeting moment in time is truly an amazing talent to behold. 5 stars plus five more stars, I say!

I provide editing and proof-reading services as well as suggestions to make stories more cohesive. I have had experience editing a novel for Todd Stevens (tentatively called Hidden) as well as a study book for epikos church in Milwaukee. I also worked as a copy editor for the Iowa State Daily where I helped ensure that the lead in stories was clear and that there were no spelling or grammatical errors.

I am a freelance editor. I work full time for Iowa State University as a communications specialist/project manager, so I am not seeking a full-time position.

About

I am a very good writer, and while I may not have the journalism degree or years of experience, I am confident in my ability to perform any writing task I am challenged to perform. Whether you need an article written (including research, I have a strong scientific background which has honed my critical thinking skills and allows me to weed out the nonsense), or an article edited to read in such a way that your point is clearly made, I can do it. If you need proof, give me a small assignment and I will complete it before you decide to hire me, since I am new at this and lack a long list of references.
