Dr. Helgeson was very quick to respond to my request for a resume` writer. Her communication was top notch throughout . In the end, I felt that what I was attempting to communicate was being missed. I paid her for her service though I did not receive a final project (my choice) so I can't give her 5 stars. 3 stars says average but i don't think it fair to say her services were average we just couldn't find ourselves on the same sheet of music.

What can I say? Not enough. Lauren was absolutely, mind blowing perfect. A graceful combination of “let’s get moving” (motivation), and “don’t touch a thing after I’m done” (trust). I am a writer who has published several books. I know how difficult it is to “trust” someone else with your work, or as we say, “our babies”. However, on any given day I would put my work in Lauren’s hands. A great listener, her expertise, knowledge, and professionalism is validated by her many well-earned 5 star ratings. Lauren made my book worthy of being a top seller. If it falls short of that mark it is through no fault of hers. Thank you, Lauren. I am glad to have chosen you as my editor, and honored that you accepted me as your client. pure ability to polish the dullest lines into shining verse

Mr. Mullen's attention to detail, and professionalism are unmatched. Tom is very personable, and takes a keen interest in clearly understanding the client's skill sets. My abilities, and accomplishments were clearly highlighted. Tom consistently went above and beyond, ensuring I was aware of job alerts, interview techniques, and upcoming job fairs. He, and his wife are a great resume writing team, and I am confident my cover letter/resume will open many doors.

Amenah has been an indispensable component of some of my best work throughout my bachelor and masters degrees. Even if the subject matter is obscure, she is able to quickly understand the point I was trying to get across and help me find the most strategic, well-organized pathway to get my point across to the reader. Importantly, she takes into consideration the audience you are writing for (whether academic, journalistic, grant agencies, etc.), helping you tailor the form and delivery of your writing. Amenah is not only a skilled grammatical editor. She is able to work with my style of writing, not against it, making me a better writer with each project she assists on. Her personable nature and common sense way of talking me through even the most complex subject matter helps me organize my thoughts and arguments, making any writing task seem far less daunting. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Amenah.

About

Well, there are several reasons: 1) Technically, I know various writing styles real well (AP, GPO, Chicago, APA). 2) Through my years of journalism and other writing experience, I've developed a knack for clear, accurate, succinct expression and finding just the right words for a certain thought. 3) I was trained in Biochemistry in college. This developed my strong analytical ability, which helps me produce clear, logical, and error-free copy. 4) I write poetry, so I bring an aesthetic sensibility to the written word, helping me produce writing that's tasteful, sensitive, and moving. 5) I have a broad general knowledge, in everything from world history to science, art to gastronomy, which strengthens my fact-checking and editing in many ways.

Andrew has met and exceeded all my expectations. His careful reading is evident by his thoughtful criticism, and although I have only worked with him for about twenty pages so far, his constructive and direct comments have already lent new vigor to portions of my writing that had otherwise grown uninspired. I recommend him quite highly.

An accomplished and imaginative writer in her own right, I've always trusted Katie's unique insight when refining prose.

Stacia did a superb job for me, crafting a letter regarding a very delicate situation. I'm a writer - a professional writer, but I knew that my emotions would negatively impact any attempt to communicate to the said party. I hired IHTMFYW. In 24 hours, I had a well-crafted, honest and insightfully-written letter that captured the key elements I wanted to highlight while maintaining a compassionate undertone. I highly recommend this service to anyone who is seeking "just the right words" for situations that need it most.

As a new writer, I was looking for a friendly editor that could walk me through the process, and Jason delivered. He is easy to communicate with via email, and has provided helpful edits and comments on my writing that I believe have improved my writing in general. I am looking forward to working with him in the future.
