I could not more highly recommend Sean as your accomplice for any writing projects. Hire this talented wordsmith and you will not be disappointed. Sean has edited many of my personal essays, academic papers, blogs as well as copy for my business website. He has also written fantastic articles for various online magazines in Portland, Oregon. I find his eye for detail impeccable and his comprehension of the essential elements of story to be vast and impressive. This man knows what keeps the reader interested and engaged, what moves the reader emotionally and causes them to read on. Sean has a way with words that is artistic and precise. He has a clear and overarching vision, while maintaining a masterful ability to attend to the finer details of many written genres spanning from journalism to personal essay, and fiction to creative non-fiction.

i have used Laurel Airica's services on more than one occasion. She worked on my website and transformed it from something ordinary into something extraordinary. She has a way of discovering what makes you uniquely you and then with her incredible command of the language, she paints an astonishingly truthful and insightful portrait. She also edited an article I was submitting to a national journal in the U.K. and it was accepted largely due I believe to her brilliance. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Erick did a fantastic job editing a manuscript for one of the writers I publish. The manuscript, a large historical fiction novel, was a difficult piece of material to work through yet, Erick still finished on time. He stayed in touch during the project so I knew how things were going. Erick also offered other services which I may use in the future. He has a great understanding of the writing and publishing mechanics which helps a lot in projects like the one I gave him to proof read. I really am pleased with the work he did. I will use him again I am sure of this!

Alex is the most imaginative writer I have ever read. If you want something unique--turn to Alex. He wrote the "back of the book blurb" for my book and I will have him write any others I need.

Verified review

Laurie became my go-to editor for helping me with the Track Changes my publisher requested for my forthcoming memoir, "Self-Made Woman." I had no experience in this type of editing before and Laurie was patient, precise, pointed, and on-task in the challenging amount of work we did together. She worked with me in an engaging, professional manner, that made me feel comfortable & productive on our project. I would recommend any writer out there who needs an editor, to bring Laurie on-board!

I met Jesse in a coffeeshop downtown. I was immediately drawn to his intelligence and have developed a great relationship with him since. I brought him in on my last three projects and expect to use him in my current two. He curated 90% of the website content and marketing collateral for two of my startups as well as our investor pitch deck. I recommended him for a grant writing position with a consulting company I was working with at the end of 2015 and he turned into an invaluable member of the team. I can't say enough good things about Jesse. He is not only a good person/friend, but he is an incredibly talented writer who will add value wherever he goes. #TeamJesse
