Victoria was very knowledgeable and helped me with editing a grad school paper every step of the way. The turn around time was even shorter than expected and my team is incredibly happy with the editing work she did. Definitely recommend!
Above and beyond expectations! I used Danny Evans of Punch Creative to write ad copy for a sell sheet on very short notice. He asked all the right questions in our initial project discussion and is clearly an experienced strategic thinker and marketer. His copy was powerful and well-written, with a headline that jumped off the page. There is no doubt the man has creative talent and is a solid writer, but what makes him so much more valuable as a copywriter is that he also went the extra mile to understand the client, delivered more than promised and met a tight deadline. I cant wait to work with him again.

My goal to you is to provide objective, critical feedback, and apply my strong editing and proofreading skills to polish your creative work with the intention of getting it published. I have a workshop-style approach where I determine what works, what doesn't, and how you can improve the structure and content of your work. In the revision stage, I'll provide feedback and make editorial suggestions regarding grammar, syntax, and style. In the final stages of the editing process, we'll make sure your piece is well-written, full of compelling and strong sentences, and is devoid of any grammatical or typographical errors. I prefer to work with smaller manuscripts (less than 100 pages) but may consider lengthier pieces. My pricing is reasonable yet negotiable, and I can work with any budget.
