I have had the pleasure of working with Jennifer on a few editing projects I needed done. She was quick, efficient and exceptionally thorough. I even received complements from others in the writing field on my editor!
I am writing a book and needed help with line editing. Homegrown Communications responded quickly. We met and she turned around the first chapter quickly. I was very pleased with her work and will use her for additional editing.
I've had Andrea edit several academic papers, and she always gets edits back to me in a timely manner. She is great at making her edits clear and explaining any grammar questions I have. I'm certain she helped my final grades on these papers! Highly recommend Andrea for any writing or editing needs.
I am a beginning blogger, and Sophie provided feedback on my initial drafts and website layout. She was prompt in responding, friendly, and willing to provide lots of support! She gave me specific feedback on grammar/editing as well as advice on curating the blog for my specific message. Sophie's feedback was easy to implement and helped create a more focused and cohesive blog!
Translation Perfecti was able to translate accurately very complex Legal and Medical terminology of our Clinical trial. TP provided professional services, in a timely fashion. TP was also available to answer our Cultural questions. I highly recommend TP Translation and Interpretation services.
Erik is smart & straight to the point. He got my consulting business set up on social media quickly and taught me what I needed to know to use it myself. That was what I needed.

I have edited dozens of articles and manuscripts from individual authors and prepared them for publication. I specialize in nonfiction and academic editing. I also have a background in French and English literature and have edited several literary manuscripts and short stories. I look forward to learning more about your project and developing an editorial plan to meet your specific needs. Here's what clients have said about my work: "I enlisted Jen's services in writing a speech, a business course and a book to accompany it. Jen collaborates well and she always kept me informed of her progress via phone, email, and face-to-face meetings. She was an excellent sounding board for my ideas, and knew how to take them, research them and execute them in vibrant and articulate ways. After this first project experience with Jen, I am happy to say I would hire her again for my next business projects." Mary Pat Blake, MBA, Founder and Chief Consultant, Blake Strategic Consulting "Jen has been a travel writer for EuropeUpClose.com for the past year and is considered to be one of our most effective, professional contributors. Jen's strong academic background in European history, art and culture, combined with her extensive European travel, provides her with insights and information that are enthusiastically conveyed to the reader. Her excellent writing skills and well-developed writing style leaves readers informed, inspired and satisfied." Terri Fogarty, Publisher, EuropeUpClose.com "Jen did a great job of editing my forthcoming book, The History of Greed. Her work was praised by both my agent and my publisher (Wiley). She was a pleasure to work with and I hope to use her services again soon." David E.Y. Sarna, Author and Managing Director, Hendon, Stamford, Hill and Co., Inc.
I value clean, accurate, consistent work. When there are multiple documents involved, of whatever type, they are uniform. My background includes experience in branding and this is demonstrated in my adherence to whatever brand principles you set. My favorite projects are huge, complicated documents that are in need of a large amount of cleanup. I derive great satisfaction from streamlining them and making them a whole lot prettier. I also enjoy being able to handle this back-end work so my customers do not have to, and can instead concentrate on doing whatever their jobs may be.
I have a Mass Comm degree in New Media. I have roughly 5 years of online journalism, working on college paper experience, and 2 years at my university writing center. I'm very thorough and patient. I am looking forward to jobs!
Copy editing is more than removing errant apostrophes and ensuring subject-verb agreement. A good copy editor will find and correct all your technical mistakes. A great copy editor will find and correct mistakes and maybe offer some advice on cohesion or consistency. A copy editor who really loves what they do will correct mistakes, tighten up passages, ensure consistency in everything from folios to character development, make suggestions in the margins, and eagerly anticipate reading your final, published work. A passionate copy editor is a passionate reader, someone who recognizes the power of media, who wants to make sure your best work is what hits the market and makes your name. One of the things I love most about copy editing is how often I'm reminded that even the best writers need it more than they know. Punctuation, spelling and grammar seem to be the first things that go out the window when someone is passionate about their subject matter; being able to take someone's raw material and apply a critical, objective eye to it, pruning and shaping and making the language and message fluid, speaks to the detail-obsessed linguistic in me.
I offer individualized, personal, confidential proofing and editing of blogs, novels and business documents. I enjoy the process of bringing ideas to life on the page.
I have been writing, editing and publishing medical and business articles and books for 20 years. I will work my best to make your experience very easy with whatever you want to write (including resumes and school projects).
I am a pleasure to work with-- I have technical and people skills-- and I prefer a simple vocabulary to obscure words. No need to bring your dictionary or wonder at my Flesch-Kincaid rating at our first meeting! I enjoy the technical work itself, and collaboration with clients during preparation and editing. I am friendly and intelligent and perfectionist to a fault: even an internal memo about employee benefits is interesting when reading it for improvement!
