Todd edited 15 poems for me that I am publishing. He did a great job, maintaining the heart and soul of my work while improving word choice, meter and readability. He is very reasonable with prices, work came in ahead of schedule, even when we had some technical glitches and I was out of touch for a few days. I will definitely call upon him again and give him my highest recommendation. I interviewed 5 editors and gave them all the same poem to edit. Todd was the only one that showed respect for what I had already written and appreciated my style and tone. This was my first time hiring an editor and Todd made it a painless experience.

Working with the Writer was a very positive experience from start to finish. He was very clear from the beginning of what type of work he would be doing and sent over a clear contract outlining everything. He was incredibly fast with the turnaround time of my manuscript, and the quality of his work was excellent. I also appreciate how honest he was with his pricing and time spent. He quoted a range of how long it would take to edit, and he only charged towards the low end of that range - so you can definitely know that The Writer is honest with the time spent. I would highly recommend this editor to any potential clients, and give him a full 5 stars in every area of work quality, professionalism, responsiveness, value, and punctuality.

Diane was amazing! My book went through several filters, including my professional editor. She found several errors that needed to be addressed before it went to press. I was very impressed with her ability to see how some suggested changes were connected to other pages in the book. For instance, changing a term in a given chapter meant it needed to be changed in the study guide at the end of the book. Diane showed her ability to be flexible as her work included editing two PDF documents. One PDF was from the book printer and the other version included several new pages that needed adjustments from a graphic designer. Although, this is not the recommended way to proof read a 360 page book, she accepted the challenge with enthusiasm. Diane was able to return the project to me in a surprisingly short time, given the length of the book. She is not only a highly skilled editor and proofreader, she is also very personable. I highly recommend Diane Brown!

David was an insightful and resourceful editor and collaborator. His contributions and interpretations added tremendous value to my final, finished product: my first book. He was also a pleasure to work with and always made time, no matter the length of the discussion. I can recommend him without reservation.

I've worked with Debbie for 18 months but have been a friend for more than that. I love the way she writes (articles and other materials for our company). She is organized, logical, gets to the point but includes human stories and interactions that bring the information in focus. She is honest and real and this comes through in her writing.

Sarah is my go-to editor/proofreader for every project; from resume design and professional writing, to academic assignments and even creative pieces. I have absolute trust in her knowledge of grammar and punctuation, as well as her eye for layout and her ear for perfect word choice. She is direct and tactful in communicating her recommendations. Our interactions have been fun, smart and time efficient. I always come away feeling uplifted.

I am a writer/editor in Worcester County. As an English major, I am well equipped to proofread documents - both fiction and non. I edit a serial novel on a weekly basis. My clients include college students, business managers, and more. Editing has always been a passion of mine; I am happy to put my knowledge to use!

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.

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!

About

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.
