Vanessa’s quality of the work is outstanding, and the communication, promptness, and personable attitude is a pleasure. She has quickly become our go-to writer for all sorts of work, and we are glad that we found her. She offers more than just editing, her creative writing process is superb. She proofreads and has excellent communication throughout the process which makes everything work out so smoothly ever single time we booked her services! Vanessa does amazing work and always delivers before the deadline even if the deadline is right. We highly recommend her to anyone that needs quality writing services!

Vanessa Park, owner of Vanessa's Red Pen, is one of the most talented and professional writers/editors/proofreaders I have ever had the great pleasure of working with. Her writing and editing is literally the best that I have EVER received from any professional I have hired. Because of her brilliant work and insight Vanessa has helped me raise the bar of my own professional business and outward visibility. I am receiving accolades and new business interest because of Vanessa's work. I am filled with gratitude for Vanessa's personal touch and incredible insight into my needs, creative expression and intensive listening to my ideas that she perfectly weaves into her own writing response. I can't recommend Vanessa enough. She will be your only professional writer/editor and proofreader you will ever use again. I know I will only continue to use Vanessa's business for all my own professional writing from now on. You won't regret it!!

Vanessa is a skilled writer and a true professional. My demanding schedule making high-end real estate sales and listings requires my utmost attention. It meant for years I missed events, vacations and holidays with my family. Writing eloquent copy describing properties caused me enormous stress and ate up hours of my time. I needed help. Then I found Vanessa. I put her on retainer and began to breathe freely. I never have to worry. She produces superb copy for me, even when the schedule is tight. My family and friends get to see more of me, so they are grateful to Vanessa as well.

I was lucky enough to work with Vanessa on my resume and LinkedIn material and I was extremely pleased. She took the time to learn my industry and its lingo and acronyms and then cut through the noise with thoughtful, practical writing, sensible edits and suggestions that made my content much more approachable without losing the necessary terms and tags for recruiter searches. She was really efficient and magically produced many options that we quickly reviewed together. It was a fantastic experience that really helped me jump start my job search. Highly recommend!

She transformed my extremely rough and awful draft into well-written literature. Simply amazing! And she's very responsive and friendly and pleasant to work with. Would definitely hire again

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing is based on type of job (including its purpose and length) and timeline. I do take rush jobs with fast turnarounds. For editing jobs I will ask for an emailed sample of the document. For writing jobs I need to know scope, intent, audience, length, and have a sense of the tone/voice. Often this can be arranged via email but often will jump on a preliminary 15 minute phone call. Once I have the information I need I submit a written proposal with estimated cost.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a lifelong writer with a masters degree in writing. I taught writing for many years and have been doing professional editing and writing since 2007.
