It was a pleasure working with Laura. She is cordial and professional. She showed genuine understanding of the message I wanted to deliver in my speech. Laura makes every effort to accommodate your schedule. She knows how to work with you until you find the right “voice” for your message. She’s adept in editing and can hone a message down to its essence by helping you to find just the right word, concept, or sentence. I appreciated her commitment and dedication to helping me write the speech I felt confident in delivering.

When I need solutions, I call Faith. I can not begin to express how great it has been to work with her. I met Faith while serving as Marketing Director of a University. She was contracted for numerous editing projects. Later, Faith assisted me in transitioning to my present entrepreneurial role. We collaborated in web content creation/editing. Faith has a strong background in business services, accounting, and compliance. Yet, she enjoys writing and editing - what a combination. Her business recommendations have been invaluable and her excitement is phenomenal. You should see for yourself. Faith has my recommendation!

Remy was indispensably helpful in editing my papers. Her knowledge of good writing techniques and command of language helped transform my work to new levels. She provides great tips for how to strengthen your argument and how to add the strongest types of evidence and analysis to your work. I've never received such useful, personalized advice in or out of school. I will reach out in a heartbeat to her for my next project, and I would definitely recommend her!

Lucille helped me with editing papers for my Master's degree. I was so pleased with the results, and hired her to help my daughter with her High School creative writing assignments! When I learned that she also did tutoring for reading, I asked her to help my elementary school Granddaughter, with reading comprehension. She has a special way of teaching which made the work fun while achieving success. Her writing abilities are evident in her published books for children and adults. I have read and enjoyed all of them. I highly recommend her services.

I've worked with Heidi over several months on jobs that required her writing, editing and videography skills. The writing and videos were for website pages, the editing was for books and also a website. Heidi's performance was terrific in all respects. Her technical skills are highly proficient, her work ethic is outstanding, and her cooperative talents make her the kind of person you want to work with. She can be counted on to take effective initiative and also to work very smoothly on a team. Some of my most productive project meetings were with Heidi! I also want to mention something important but more elusive. The text Heidi created and the text she edited were not cut-and-dried, counting-widgets sort of copy. They didn't need only the right punctuation and grammar, they needed to be done by someone who had the skill to understand what would communicate best with the audience, someone who would ask the right questions and incorporate the answers effectively into the project. Heidi is doing a great job, and I look forward to our continuing work together!
