I've worked for Jennifer, who was the Writing Studio Director at my college, and she also has helped me with my writing on a professional level. Jennifer is excellent at relaying how each person can maximize learning. She is very clear, but also very friendly with her guidance. When working with college students, Jennifer is able to help them break assignments down into easily digestible tasks and suggest edits (some that are significant and some that are minor) with ease and confidence. She tends to use a guiding method of asking questions and allowing you to find the answer. She is astute when it comes to ascertaining whether or not a student already knows an answer. If they do know it and just can't "see" it - she helps lead them to it. If they don't, she helps them find ways to research and remedy that issue, which build their confidence as a writer and a person. Overall, Jennifer is an incredibly passionate and positive professional. I highly recommend her for any sort of writing, editing or mentoring opportunity.

Greg was able to take on a wide range of topics from technical medical device guides to articles on lifestyle and wellbeing. He often asked follow up questions to clarify assignments and make sure he was on target. His projects were typically turned in ahead of schedule and needed little editing. He quickly grasped the brand and with that the voice of the organization. His work was always research-based and easy to digest. I would not hesitate to recommend him for content writing in the health field or any other.

Greetings, It my great pleasure to recommend Elayne Star for a position in your company. I have personal experience with Elayne’s ability and skill in research, proofreading and copy editing. Using her creative talents she has helped me find new opportunities for my art and writing projects. Her interest in antiques, the arts and history of the area, plus her professional approach to office procedures would make her a valued employee. She has proven to be a dedicated, hard worker, who takes initiative to complete tasks in a timely manner. She also has a keen sense of humor and enjoys working in a stimulating environment. I’m confident Elayne would make a major contribution to your organization. With best wishes, Steve Hrehovcik

I charge less than anybody else, I do my work with the pleasure of helping others and myself learn from each other, sometimes I don't charge anything at all. I understand what it is to be poor, low income and not have the ability to receive help from people in the same business I am in.

With Q&R Literary Services I have been able to expand my abilities and strengths both as an editor, and a writer. The two principles of Quality, and Reliability, are the driving standards of my work. Most importantly I enjoy what I do, and I enjoy helping others see their projects to fruition. My most recent projects include a business plan editing and consultation for a creative arts upstart, and a local funnies paper from Cape Cod, Mass. Resources for those in need of publishing and printing services are also available. With that, I look forward to doing business with you. May all your projects meet with the success you deserve.

About

As a writer and editor I work hard to produce and polish compelling content. This is created through STORY, LANGUAGE and VOICE. STORY is the plot. This could be anything from your resume (the story of your professional accomplishments and career goals) to a romance novel (the story of a relationship). LANGUAGE is the words you choose to tell the story and VOICE is what is created when you rub the two together. Striking a balance between these three elements can be difficult but this is what a good writer and editor strives to achieve. I want my clients to feel that their story has been told in the very best way possible.

About

Once properly caffeinated, I'm an efficient writer, a confident interviewer, and a meticulous fact checker skilled at tailoring my style to best fit the project at hand. I've had the opportunity to hone my writing chops in hands-on, deadline-driven settings working with start-ups and small companies that stressed creative problem solving. Producing memorable copy, pithy articles, and savvy social media content is my bread and butter, but I'm game to tackle anything in the realm of writing. Always open to new opportunities, I'm ideally looking to collaborate on projects that utilize my Barnard English degree in combination with my passion for talking all things beauty, food, fitness, travel, and pop culture.
