John Acker is an excellent editor. His incisive editing helped me with one of the most difficult business writing tasks: writing a cover letter. His timely and generous comments improved my cover letter significantly. Thanks in no small part to his editing work, my newly professional, audience-oriented cover letter allowed me to better demonstrate my skills to the hiring committee. I got the job!
Ben with Side Job City is a 5/5 in my book... a true professional in every way. After a great job on our power wash, we decided to have this company work on multiple items for our remodel project. He gave us suggestions for the best way to utilize what was existing and/or repairable without breaking the bank. His work ethic is impeccable -- working weekends, nights -- whatever was necessary to get the job done. Ben is the next best thing to working on his your own home! I HIGHLY recommend him for both large and small jobs. We will continue to utilize their services.
Josh's level of commitment and dedication to my fiction manuscript has 'literally' been impressive. He has detected every punctuation fault, repeated word, and developmental area of opportunity while consistently communicating throughout the process. My editor search was extensive, and I'm certain this extremely lengthy project could not have been better polished by anyone else!
Don has helped me launch my personal brand, provide the motivation to write a book, the idea to host a book launch party, has helped my clients with numerous ways in which to improve their marketing, and has provided true mentor and leadership qualities that I have been able to learn from and evolve as a person. The man has better and more ideas than anyone I know and his creativity is second to none. What would improve my experience with Don? If he bought my lunch while giving me all this awesome help perhaps?! I don't know...it's hard to say b/c he does everything so well. Spread Good Vibes, Mike Rudd
I have had the pleasure of working with Mike Petee on a number of occasions. We first collaborated when I performed in one of two plays he wrote...and I was very impressed with his ability, which inspired me to become a playwright as well. In addition, I asked Mike to please review, and edit my work, and was very pleased and incorporated many of his ideas into my pieces. He also wrote some musical arrangements for me to use during a premier of my first play. I recommend Mike as a writer, editor, songwriter on any creative project ! Jim Stoner 740.504.9399
I love creating something from nothing - by using words. I love taking in my surroundings and capturing them for others to enjoy as well. I am also a bit of a grammar geek, and my biggest pet peeves are improper grammar usage. I love that I get to combine these two elements of my personality into my work.

Need help with the copy on your web site? Want to attract customers through advertising, postal mail, or e-mail? Have corporate communications pieces that need a consistent voice? Turn to me for superior writing, editing, and strategic consultation. I excel at lending branded strength to consumer-facing, business-to-business, and internal communications. I'm a well-rounded creative copywriter and thoughtful editor with more than 20 years of professional experience. I've worked on staff at advertising agencies, in corporate marketing departments, and for prominent retailers.

I'm a very qualified editor/writer. I completed 3 years of college with an English major focus as well as taking on numerous private writing/editing projects in my spare time. It's something I love doing!
I am passionate about two things: event planning and writing. I have an English degree from Xavier and minors in Professional and Creative Writing. As for event planning: It’s always been a passion and while I’ve never done it full time—I’ve always supported people and businesses in my life because I absolutely love to do it. I’ve helped with everything from Weddings, Yoga Retreats, Family Reunions, and Vacations to the writing/editing side of the House: Content Writing, Tutoring, Social Media Marketing and much much more. Let me know your project and we will work together to make it happen!!
I'm a people person who does a great job listening to my clients' needs. I tend to work with clients long-term because they trust me. I also studied at one of the top journalism schools in the nation and have over 20 years experience as a professional writer, editor, and researcher. I love helping people figure out exactly what it is they want to say--and then say it in a way that is both powerful and easy to understand. I also love digging into a topic to research it, understand it, and share it with others so they can use it to their advantage.
With my background in philosophy, I have a keen eye for critical thinking, clarity, and logical thought. I love that it allows me to blend my passion for writing with my dedication to quality work and well-developed ideas.
I started writing short stories and poems in 6th grade. I have improved my vocabulary over the years, and now, being nineteen, I have finally published a poem for the first time. I love writing. It's how I express my feelings or someone else's feelings. I can write poems for anyone and short stories as well. Just tell me what you want! I would love to make one personally for you or for someone you love.
Edit books and academic papers. My special gift is tightening the language while retaining your particular voice.
