Todd Larson did an excellent job editing my book Rising Stars in Emerging Markets, published in 2013. He not only helped to cut the size of the text without changing the underlying message, but also did this under a very tight deadline. I wrote this book with the layperson reader in mind, which is always difficult to do, especially when writing about little-known names in emerging markets. But Todd helped to simplify the jargon to make the book easier to read, especially on my country-specific comments. I definitely recommend Todd for editing projects in business as well as non-business areas.
Todd copy-edited my association's 50th Anniversary book/History of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. We had numerous challenges, such as strange formatting in Word, ridiculously large file sizes, et cetera. Todd not only overcame those challenges (which were on my end, not his!), but delivered the project on time with excellent edits. I'm generally a bit harsh on copy editors -- I used to be one full-time -- but his work elevated the copy to where it really needed to be & exceeded my expectations. I will definitely be working with him again! Highly recommend.
I had two objectives - to improve my SAT reading score & develop better experience with the essay section.. In just two hours consulting over the phone, Kathy was extremely helpful in achieving both of my goals. She taught me alternative methodical strategies for different types of critical reading passages & questions. She also eliminated my anxiety of getting caught off guard by a strangeEssay prompt by explaining how & why I could prepare my examples ahead of test day, write to the specific structure and still stand out from other good persuasive writers. She even made it fun to recognize the most common grammar mistakes on the test. The resulting positive attitude, clear-mind, and confidence I had on test day definitely improved my score. Thank you Kathy!!
If you are looking for a great editor for your manuscript Dave Wheeler is a great one. He is fair and generous. We still talk on the phone and he still offers his recommendations and help for the next steps. I highly recommend him.
I needed help structuring my first novel draft--a wild project. Somerville Editors gave detailed multi-level feedback that really helped. Professional, timely, and personable. I received thoughtful feedback for much less in cost.
I have seen Ryan do miracles with film to digital transfer projects. Ryan is an unbelievable editor. She is talented and patient enough to draw out hidden and 'lost' clips, adds a personal touch and is awesome with her pick of music. You WILL NOT BE disappointed in any project you give her. Andrea E
I was a little skeptical.. Having to find an event planner on thumbtack, I thought I was scraping at the bottom of the barrel. But Phedorah was able to take my list of wants and put it together into the coherent design! I would book with her again!!
I highly recommend reading "I call myself Earth Girl. The story is compelling and not easy to put down. Ms. Greene has given us a beautifully written book that carries messages that are dear to my heart. Her method of bringing these subjects to light will reach many. It is a thought-provoking book that left me thinking long after the last sentence.
Tom was very thoughtful in his feedback on my document (85,000 words) and often offered alternative phrasings in the comments section. He queried things he did not understand clearly and I never felt like he skirted over any sections without checking things properly. His rates were also extremely reasonable for the work done. I was thankful to have another set of eyes to check through my work.

Hi! I am an academic, an editor, and a professional writer. I specialize in part in editing projects for international scholars. I also specialize in writing clear, engaging blog content for all kinds of audiences. I pride myself in delivering projects by the deadline. My experience is in editing scholarly manuscripts, but if you have other deliverables I am more than happy to take on miscellaneous projects. I have a strong writing background, and I produce feature articles for various companies. My editorial experiences range from working at publishing houses to editing literary journals. I have experience with Word, Excel, Adobe, and PPM. Please provide me with any criteria I need to know and a style guide, and I'm your editor! Scholarly projects excite me. I love proofreading and editing academic articles, but I'm open to editing any projects.
As a Harvard-educated English major with an interest in psychology and, quite frankly, a boatload of neuroses (if you think one informs the other, you're probably right!), the intricacies of wordplay and effective messaging have always fascinated me. After graduation, I chose to go into the field of communications, which provided me with a solid foundation in PR and marketing writing styles. Despite trying to leave this field in my next role, the passion to write -- and, even more pressingly, to edit -- kept coming back to me and guiding the projects I sought out. In my full-time positions, I have ghostwritten legal blogs for the senior counsel of a major tech corporation; edited numerous academic manuscripts for successful submission and publication, as well as a doctoral dissertation; authored Commencement speeches for a university dean; and much more. My diverse background means I'm able to tackle pretty much any project and any content that is fired my way. When you have a mind for details and have been voraciously consuming literature and media since you were very young, finding pleasure in editing seems like a natural fit. I tick all of these boxes and view each new project as a challenge to really dig into the details and minutiae. While writing presents a more creative opportunity and I sincerely love it, editing is my true calling.
I genuinely love curating contentwhether it be writing to grab a readers attention right off the back cover of one of my books, exploring prevalent topics on my site, guest blogging, or creating sales pitches and product catalogs. I enjoy performing vigilant market research to connect readers with the content they desire.
I have succeeded across a wide variety of assignments, long and short term. I have written editorial op/eds, letters from the CEO, corporate and non-profit communications, analysis, screenplays, ads, marketing collateral and have loved it all. It's always about telling a story in a beautiful or compelling way to connect with your readers. I am not patient, focused, skilled and intuitive. I love being an editor, working closely with authors, and working with both experienced and new writers. I have always loved writing, and writing and editing projects. I love the process and the development of authors connecting with their work and their readers. From the most creative to the most technical, the process and craft excites me.
