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.

Delores has helped me with writing papers to finish a class several times. She looks at my research and my assignment and it is put together and finished that evening! She writes clearly and puts it in order that makes sense. I feel much more confident with her help and know that the paper is well written. She can write a paper on a topic that is not even in her area of expertise. She had information and she can remember a point from the research on another page that she had skimmed over.

Mike is an excellent editor. He is incredibly thorough and attentive, and is very skilled at explaining why something isn't working. I would highly recommend his editing services.

Gretchen was one of my favorite colleagues at Time Out Chicago because of her excellent editing and writing skills, instincts for what would make a good story, conscientiousness, and easygoing manner. Whenever she edited my work, her questions and suggestions improved it. When we collaborated closely on two projects, her ability to balance high professional standards with kindness and tact made it easy to cope with stressful situations and yielded excellent stories. Gretchen and I have now known each other for several years, and I am continually impressed by her knowledge of various cultural fields and her impressive network of contacts.

Laura worked with me on an extensive book project on contemporary art for the University of Lüneburg, and her profound grasp of the subtleties of language was invaluable, particularly in editing such complex subject matter. As a translator it is extremely important to me to be able to work with a good editor, who is not only technically versed in grammar and punctuation, but also approaches each text with sensitivity and understanding, as Laura Freeburn certainly does.

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!

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!!!!

I have worked with Steve on a variety of projects, as a contributor to his anthologies (he's a fine editor) and as a collaborator on stories. He has always displayed a great attention to detail and produces excellent work (check out his "Blue Kingdoms" series where he has designed covers, edited others and contributed fiction. First rate work and a perfect trifecta of skills). When I developed the idea for a serial fiction series, Steve was one of two writers I asked first to contribute.
