Sandy has done a terrific job. She is an excellent writer, but, more than that, she takes the time to figure out exactly what your goals are, and then tailors her writing to be in line with those goals. She is also prompt, dependable, and charges extremely reasonable fees. I highly recommend Sandy for your writing needs!

Linda's work is above the rest! You won't find a multi talented photographer, writer, and graphic artist all-in-one like Linda. Once you let Linda do her thing, you will see your business grow like never before.

    Our team hired mike after an impressive interview, and after thorough review of his outstanding work portfolio. During his time with us, his dependability, consistency and impeccable attention to detail in conjunction with the ability to manage a team of other freelance writers allowed him to progress from a freelance writer to Editor In Chief. He also held the title of Team Manager, and his team consistently achieved and exceeded weekly and monthly goals. As Mike's project was concluded, our administrative staff have saved his contact information because he will surely be contacted when his expertise is required in the future. It is without any hesitation that I recommend this outstanding individual.

    Mike has done a great job editing my work in the past. He has a very critical eye and is good at spotting inconsistencies and making work more concise. My writing was definitely much improved after receiving Mike's input. Having reviewed some of his own work as well, I know that Mike is also a clear, clever, and insightful writer.

    Marissa worked with me to fine-tune a cover letter draft, and tailor it to multiple job applications. Her edits were thoughtful and really took my writing to the next level. Her writing expertise and creative approach helped me finalize a cover letter that stood out, and I ended up with two job offers!

      Heidi is amazing – she is professional, easy to talk to and most of all, she transformed my book into a more interesting and readable format. Her input gave me the confidence to put my story out into the world. I would recommend Heidi to anyone who needs an editor. She understands what the writer’s challenges are – she “gets it”. She’s great!

      Paula and I have been working together for about two years now with her taking responsibility for our site's blog and all other writing assignments. I can truly say that without her help we would have been down the tubes a long time ago.

      Cindy is the best of the best! She is someone you just want to get to know. She handled everything so beautifully and led us through it each step of the way. Our wedding was better than we could have ever hoped for! She made the entire wedding so personal and even wrote the most incredible poem about our lives together. We are going to have it framed as a lifelong reminder! With Cindy performing our marriage, we always felt comfortable that everything was in control and would go well - and believe me, that's a great feeling! After all, your wedding is your most important day! Cindy doesn't only have a lot of experience marrying people, but she has been a speaker for years! So she is very used to talking to big crowds. This was so wonderful, because she came across so natural, she could be heard well, and really knew how to "present" the ceremony so that it all comes off without a problem. She is also great for those awkward "on the spot" moments where no one knows what to do or say. (We had one of those with my mother-in-law, but Cindy handled it beautifully!) Everyone was so pleased and very impressed. She led us through our rehearsal so we all knew what to do and what to expect. She helped us to write our vows without being intrusive or pushy. She was sooooo helpful! She organized our music for us, helped us to chose readings and just put together and overall ceremony that blew us away! Oh, and she also created our wedding bulletins! They were really awesome! I just loved them!!! I will recommend Cindy to everyone (and do). She is that on-in-a-million type of person you just hope will come into your life. We will always be grateful that she came into ours!!!!
