Merry A.
Verified review

Margaret was very professional in all aspects. She was an excellent listener and if I did not understand something, she would explain it as best as she knew, until I understood. She was true to her word and always punctual when she said she would contact me. She was clear in her communication with me. She was timely and edited 28 stories efficiently and with incredible detail. There is one more story for her to edit. She is ready but I am waiting for the 'participant' to get back to me with her memoir. I would refer Margaret to anyone who wanted an excellent editor. Thank you, Margaret.

I was initially skeptical of hiring an editor online. However while researching different editors I came across Tami Williscroft on Thumtack. I took the risk and reached out to her. Tami proved me wrong she responded to every email,question, etc almost immediately. She also was not pushy for me to make a decision. That was my first impression which prompted me to hire her. Not only was she amazing at communication she was even better in the editing she did for me. She made several suggestions, allowed me to look them over and went back and forth like this several times. She truly put all of her effort in assisting me in having a final product that could be submitted at the doctoral level. I am grateful to have found her, will use her again in the future, and if anyone is looking I would highly recommend her to others.

Rosemary Donahue is a visionary editor, articulate, dedicated, honest, and detail-oriented, striking the balance between amiable and diligence. She recently co-founded Lumen, the innovative journal of literature and ideas by and for women, which promises to be an important American magazine. She also served as fiction editor of Pacific Review, doing most of the design and layout, demonstrating style, toughness and pizazz under time-pressure at every juncture. She's one of the best editors I've ever worked with in the past twenty years!

Verified review

Lindsay helped to edit my work of fiction. Not only did I receive proofreading services, but also, Lindsay provided in-depth, constructive commentary with an action plan on how to correct what was needed. I knew Lindsay would be the right editor for this project as I am a big fan of her own written works!

Maria has done a wonderful job at editing and re-writing advertisements for my company. Without her help my customers would think I am a dolt.

Kat is a truly gifted editor. I’ve hired her on numerous occasions to help me communicate exactly what it is I’ve wanted to say. I’ve received nothing but positive responses on each occasion. Her communication is unparallel and she has a delightfully calming disposition and attitude. Will hire again and again A+++

Julia edited a number of my research manuscripts. In each case, she was prompt in returning edited drafts, and I have been impressed with the thoroughness of her work. Particularly important for me, she was able to recommend edits that fit within the "scientific" style of writing, which is sometimes difficult, in my experience, for editors to do.

I hired Mr. Black to provide editing services for my book. Although I am not one of his best selling authors, I was very pleased with the insightful help he gave me. I would recommend him to anyone who is serious about producing a first rate product in a timely manner. His experience shows in the help he gives and the impact he makes.

About

I specialize in developmental editing, line editing, and proofreading--I take manuscripts and improve their story arcs and characterizations and fix all grammatical and stylistic errors. But most of all, I punch up the prose--I make it more vivid and more concise, and I make dialog sound more interesting and natural.

    A single project
  • Details
    A start up publishing project is looking for a qualified children book editor to edit a relatively small and simple piece. The written piece (written is in rhyme) is approximately 300 words. Since I’m no editing expert and I want to produce an awesome piece of work that everyone will enjoy, I’m turning to the genius that is you - I’m looking for a professional, creative, and detail oriented individual to perform a critical review of the content, structure, and punctuation of the piece. I’m looking for someone who is willing to get their hands dirty with the piece and, if need be, to just rip it apart.
