My need was for proofreading only, no editing. I had carefully proofread the manuscript three times, so thought it was very clean. It's amazing what he caught! Since he has talents in editing it's important to discuss your exact needs up front. I submitted a small portion at first, so I could see how much proofing and how much editing he envisioned. I suggest that procedure for others. He was amazingly fast, which I appreciated very much. His hourly rate was more than the others I considered, but with his speed, I think the total bill was probably less than others' would have been. I was very pleased with the total cost. When I need proofreading again I'll be back.

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 is a phenomenal editor with an eye not only for the smallest detail but for the big picture as well. To begin with, she has done a wonderful job editing and proofreading my novels, not just catching typos or pointing out missing words, but finding inconsistencies in descriptions (people, places, things), timelines, etc. She has applied the same discerning attention to my non-fiction. Diane has also been editing and proofreading copy for my advertising business for more than two decades now. That copy has run the gamut from lengthy brochures to video scripts to print advertising to web content to sales presentations, and so on. Additionally, for my licensing business, she has done an equally superb job reviewing complex legal agreements. Bottom line: She has never failed to make my writing better in some way, whether it’s by flagging a phrase or sentence that could be clearer or by catching a typo. I always have a lot more confidence in the clarity and accuracy of my work after Diane has put her stamp on it.

I am incredibly impressed with Susan Wilson. She has exceeded all expectations. She has gone above and beyond in all aspects. She edited, proofread, reorganized, and corrected grammar. She always sent back corrections in a timely manner. She would always send me an encouraging note with my corrections. It was a true joy working with Susan.

We called on Sam to do a proofreading job that involved careful attention to ensuring consistent Canadian spelling throughout our document. It was a last minute hire, and he spent the entire day doing the work with excellent results. I recommend him highly and have no doubt I will hire him again.

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.
