I had a great experience with Write for life, David T. I would work with him again on other projects in the near future. As a beginner writer, he listened to my voice, and develop the style to a professional level. Thank you.

I thought JT was great to work with. He really took the time to speak with me and get my vision for where I wanted my content to go and say. If you are considering a content writer, I would highly recommend JT as he takes his time and gets it done right.

Malory is amazing. I have a bit of a problem with word recall and word choice. Utilizing an editor has helped me to see the areas I need improvement. Malory’s is responsive and depending on the length can review and edit in minutes. She’s a godsend.

Kate is easy and fun to work with. She has an intuitive approach. She is a good listener. I interviewed 6 writers (1 in Canada, 5 in US) before talking with Kate and I decided to go with Kate for 3 reasons: 1- her high-quality is worth more than its cost. 2 - she leaves nothing on the table, she is going to write it out and in a timely manner; without delay. 3 - her interview for my bio write-up was so thoughtful. Meaning, at one point I said to Kate, "I was hoping you were going to ask me about that." I've included a picture of my bio. The best part about working with Kate on my bio is that she aspires to capture your story and her writing technique is so good that whatever your story her writing adapts. Just know, if you work with Kate she is going to nail it! #thumbtack

I can't recommend Charles highly enough. He is absolutely amazing as a person and as a professional. I was struggling so much with my resume before I met him and couldn't find good job. After a few meetings with him he was able to figure out what are my string sides are and put everything so beautifully together that when I read it I cried. Really. I didn't know that I am that great but everything he wrote was true. And as you can guess I found a job right away. I recommend him to all my friends and they all are happy with him and ALL got job quickly. I suspect that besides being a good writer he also brings good luck. I can't thank you enough, Charles!

The project was to find a professional resume writer who could create a resume and cover letter for a retiree with 25+ years of experience to apply for an administrative part-time position. I believe the comments below speak for themselves. First reaction, "WOW”. I really wasn't too optimistic that she would be able to take what I provided her and craft it in such a way to get so much information into 1 page. Of course my expectation was an improvement over what I provided, but she really took it to another level; I was amazed! To have someone who truly understands ... respects my feelings is absolutely priceless. I guess the best way I can say this, is the professionalism, sincerity and genuine commitment to my project is something we all as consumers wish we could experience with any company we do business with! Well done!" Thank you so much for a job “Well done”!

Rosemary Donahue is a writer’s dream. From the very first conversation, she was supportive and attentive. She took my rather weak pitch and helped me shape it into a much better piece, by opening me up to perceptions and nuances that I might not otherwise have considered. Another plus is that she responds quickly and thoroughly, so that I felt we were really on the same team.

I asked Lea for help regarding some papers I had to write. Having read some of her work, I thought she was a good writer, but didn't expect a lot since my papers require a different style of writing. I was, however, pleasantly surprised. Not only did she help me polish up my content significantly, she also helped me wrap up the project within a tight deadline, which was equally important for me. I am more than satisfied with her help and would not hesitate to recommend her.

Tony generated a very professional resume. He formatted it so that it looked great both on the printed page and on screen. Tony spent time on the phone with me gathering the salient points--education, experience, skill sets, honors and awards, publications, etc., then drafted a resume which I was able to review and edit as needed. Happily, Tony did such a great job displaying and emphasizing my credentials that I did not have to change anything! I was invited to participate in both phone screenings and in-person interviews. Tony acted as job coach to prepare me for those events through role playing exercises where he was the interviewer and I was the interviewee. During these sessions, Tony helped me become aware of my phone presence, made suggestions regarding my delivery, and recommended that I stay on topic when answering questions, yet expand to emphasize my expertise in the field, when necessary. I am extremely pleased with Tony's abilities as a resume writer and interview coach. I know that you will find this to be the case as well. Tony's methods resulted in my landing a new job. I have been working there for six months. I know that Tony's efforts and instruction helped me get my position.
