Carol was my editor for several projects. She did such a good job on the first one, I hired her for all of them. She really earned her fee, and did a fabulous job with difficult, technical material. She also wrote an amazing resume for my brother. She is a real writing and editing pro. If you want your job done right, she should be your choice.

"I had the pleasure of working closely with Gretchen Kalwinski for nearly three years at TransUnion--and I can't say enough good things about her. Gret is a writer/editor super-pro who also happens to be really good people. At TU, she was an ace at creating all kinds of digital and print marketing content; she was our department's resident AP style guru and stingiest proofreader; she's a creative thinker with great business instincts; and she's the kind of generous colleague who might pop into your cube offering things like a) salted dark chocolate squares b) black-currant flavored stress-relief lozenges and c) cutting-edge SEO and email best practice insights. And that's just what she did in that one job. Having seen up close a lot of the other work she's done, I can also tell you she's unbelievably versatile. B2B corporate copywriter, editor in many places, arts/culture journalist, creative writing instructor....no matter the communication challenge, Gret nails it. P.S. I'm happy to talk on the phone or email, if you'd like to hear me rave more.

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!

Jessica is an incredibly skilled editor. In about 2 hours she was able to make more sense of my son's 3-page autobiography for his medical school application. Throughout the process she communicated frequently before making changes. Because of the quality of her work, I am using her to edit his personal statement and entries also. I highly recommend Jessica to anyone who needs editing services.

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 worked for elaine when she was editor of the chicago tribune's home & garden section. i loved working for her because she always trusted her writers' vision, and let us soar where we believed we might find an updraft. she is one of the hardest workers i know. and recently she produced a spoken word concert, where again she showed her limitless capacity for imagination, for bringing together artists, and for attending to every detail. she is fabulous.
