"In addition to proofreading and editing services, Robert provides various fundraising, grant-application and promotional writing services for our hospital. I have worked with him for over 15 years on a variety of projects ranging in size from individual correspondence to multi-page promotional packets to lengthy grant applications. No matter the specific end product, he takes the diverse information and varying needs of each project and crafts them into a well-communicated, streamlined and impacting and effective final product."

Michelle helped me edit a few creative nonfiction pieces I was working for publication. Her thoughtful developmental editing helped me see flaws in he narrative arc, noticed details that were distracting to the story, and helped me see places that needed more complete explanation. Her copy editing caught many errors that my own dozen or so readings (and the proofreading of other people) missed. Because of her help, four of the eight essays she edited for me have been published in journals such as The Iowa Review and Epiphany Magazine. Her feedback is insightful and timely, and has made Michelle one of my go-to readers.

Linda provided editorial review for several of my short stories. Her standards are impeccable, her work prompt and always appropriate. I recommend her and expect to use her again. The stories were better for it: tighter, cleaner and more direct.

Adam is a very good teacher. He is patient kind and well aware of anything. His class is entertaining and helpful. He speaks slowly so that I can understand perfectly.
