  • Write for Life

    (19 reviews)

    I take real care to respect and enhance a storyteller's voice. My background in theater really helps me do this and working for years as a teaching artist makes it easy to communicate. That's the key to producing a great final product. Working as an independent contractor gives me flexibility to be available and engaged with my kids. A creative and ever-changing collection of projects is great, too.

    My work is distinctive as a consequence of being a seasoned writer/editor with a deep commitment to excellence for all of the projects that I undertake. I have handled complex and challenging material over the entire course of my career and I am able to convey the author's intent in a logical manner utilizing crystal-clear language. In addition to my editing and writing contributions, my clients often ask me for advice about how to deal with their work-related problems and guidance about the best path to follow for their career choices. In this way, I help them to formulate their thinking so that it is more concrete and goal-oriented. What I like most about my work is that it helps people achieve their objectives. I have been able to empower many young people to forge ahead with their studies and I have helped many professionals advance in their careers. This opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of fledgling professionals gives me a great sense of purpose and satisfaction.

    (17 reviews)

    I approach every piece of writing with a creative, unique outlook. I am also a perfectionist, so I spend copious amounts of time on each page and paragraph. I am sharp business sense mixed with imaginative flair and I know how to transform an average piece of prose into an exceptional one. I love assisting in creating that final product - the freshly printed, mistake-free masterpiece that is black words on a white page. After nearly five years of tutoring writers and editing papers, I decided it was time to go viral and edit for the masses.

Madalyn's Editing Services

(2 reviews)

What inspired me to start my own business was pretty straightforward and simple: I lost my job as science editorial director at Amsco Publishing Company after 12 years when the company went bankrupt in 2012. It was difficult to find another job. Since I had been freelancing on the side before this happened, the natural course was to just build up my own clientele and continue along that path, since I also loved working on all types of books with different people.

Madalyn Stone is a book editing associate and provides a number of related services like substantial developmental editing, copyediting, and proofreading. Despite the challenge of starting her own business, Madalyn faced everything head-on; thus, she has enough experience and technical know-how.

My usual clients are well-educated people who write well and have something interesting to say, usually about their own unique lives and experiences. I have done a lot of editing on personal biographical memoirs. Anyone's/everyone's life is a story, if told the right way--and with my help.

Every project is special for Madalyn, and in each of them she reveals how excellent her work is. She maintains her clients' happiness by delivering work at a fair price. She always strives to provide more than what the client expects.

    I had a rush Chicago Manual of Style job of 8,000 words for Paul to help format and prepare for publishing. Though I was in California and he was in Texas, he stayed up late to put in the work, and considering the rush, he came through with a great deal of assistance and sent me back my edited and annotated draft that same evening. Thanks Paul!

    Brittany was incredible. I hired her to edit articles I wrote for my lifestyle report, having no reviews at all. My gut told me she was the one for the job and I was 100% right. She was thorough and punctual. Her editing enhanced my writing exponentially. I highly recommend hiring her, and I will use her again and again.
