Karen helped me redo my resume and cover letter. Took about a week to complete and a few minor edits after the first rough draft was completed. She was very helpful, professional, and knowledgeable about what hiring officials would be looking for. Quality of work was great...thanks

Metro Create captured my attention immediatley with their speed and professionalism once they reached out for a chance at the job, also the outline of pricing and how they intended to complete the job. The job was a simple logo, but the catch was I wanted it done within my preconceived thoughts and with my direction, the project was not ever cost prohibitive and MetroCreate Studios knew that but never once altered their original pricing, even though I had multiple holdups and changes due to corporate branding struggles with a product line I carry. I had the pleasure of working with Eric. Eric then took my ideas and my comparison photos and designed a logo on the first try without any other input from me other than the original discussion. There was no second edits or tweaks the first shot was what I was going for, that impressed me, greatly. Since the original interaction I have since met Eric in person and am going ahead with web designs, Facebook, business cards, and line cards. I have also contracted him to design a logo for a close friend of mine who is just starting a new business himself. His attention to detail, note taking and after conversation follow ups are some of the best I have ever had, within any field. Eric is a rarity, in a world of poor designers who take little interest in a project that may take longer than others, or who churn out sub par designs at a premium just to move on to the next project. If you are contemplating using MetroCreate and Eric and have read this entire review know this you will be contacted by numerous "designers" most with shut down websites, broken portfolio links, some with plagerized artwork who will tell you that the up front cost will vary due to numerous conditions. Eric gave an extremely fair price, worked hard to understand what I was looking for and turned out a logo I am proud to associate my company with. He will be doing everything for me for the foreseeable future due to the professional relationship we have going. You will not be disappointed in his work, attitude or sense of urgency. And if you ever wish to contact me to discuss Eric by all means, ask him for my number and I will gladly go over my experience.

Did a great job re-formatting my resume, highlighting strongest skills/key words front and center. Ian was patient with my questions and edits. He "listened" with empathy and he was great at negotiating, with me, the best ways to communicate to a prospective employer, through my resume, and cover letter?

Melinda really makes a resume review & rewrite a painless process. She quickly understands what you are trying to do and is able to create a resume that speaks to your goals but is also flexible enough that it can be easily edited for a variety of jobs.

David was a fantastic support with the opening chapter of my first novel. He provided excellent insights into my writing habits, great suggestions and ultimately focussed on where I could strengthen my story to keep the reader engaged. His editing was very valuable, and he responded almost immediately. I would work with him again and happily recommend others consider him also.

A much needed kick in the butt on my manuscript, but hardly discouraging. She knew what I was trying to achieve and returned a thoughtfully edited manuscript with what worked and what needed revision. Could not be more grateful.

MIchael's editing for my book was excellent. He was through and went beyond expectations in his comments, suggestions and remarks. We had several phone conversations during the process and he exhibited a level of involvement and interest in my book showed that he really understood what I was trying to say and edited accordingly. Michael is fun to work with and I will ask him to edit the next book.

I contacted Sara on craigslist while searching for someone who could help me with editing my graduate school application essays. The application was due about 3 days after I initially made contact with Sara. In any case, I could not finish my drafts by the time I told her I would due to a family emergency. I was frazzled and discombobulated. About 6 hours before it was due, she edited and proofread 2 of my essays. She paid keen attention to detail and stayed up late in the evening to make sure I could get these in on time. The finished product was flawless. She goes above and beyond for her clients!

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!

    Lawrence Kessenich and I have been friends and editorial colleagues for over 30 years. We shared a tiny office while he was editing "Shoeless Joe," the Bill Kinsella novel that became the movie "Field of Dreams." Lawrence is a gifted book editor. Most recently, I subcontracted him to edit an international detective novel while I finished ghostwriting. He was committed and observant, on time and on target. We had a ball, despite the 1,700 miles between us. If you have the opportunity to work with Lawrence, don't hesitate. Leap at the chance to work with a trusted and respected editor.

    Sam was an integral part of my law school application process. He worked with me to write a fantastic Personal Statement and several Letters of Interest. His critiques were insightful and spot-on, his turnaround time was fast, and his professionalism was unmatched. I highly recommend Sam and RSSR Editing for any editing/drafting/writing needs - especially for help with graduate school admissions. Thank you Sam!

      I am working with Nikomo Peartree for the second year through the University of the Wild, an alternative higher education program and the Earthlands Collective, a program center collaborative. I have worked with Nikomo on many projects, but her editing and writing skill and experience has been by far, her greatest contribution. She is at ease and confident in a range of written formats from academic research papers to social media blogs. Her comprehensive understanding of a wide range of philosophy, content, and methods with various disciplines, allows her to convey "clear, crisp, and reader-friendly" writing and images. In addition to Nikomo's "wordsmithing" skills, she is an accomplished graphic designer who knows and uses the latest techniques and methods. She is a central member of my organization's team.
