In 2010, when I was the associate editor of the Rittenhouse Square Revue, an arts and culture magazine, Josh Silver wrote an article about the history of artists and art galleries in the Old City section of Philadelphia. His detailed piece encompassed the art scene in the late 1960s, the birth of "First Friday" gallery nights in the early 1990s, and the current (as of 2010) gallery scene in Old City. It was evident that Josh had put quite a bit of effort into this article, and his value for thorough research was also apparent. Josh and I have kept in touch over the years, and I have continued to be impressed by his strong knowledge of and enthusiasm for history.

I attended Strategic Communications course with Holly, and have consulted with her throughout years on that topic. She has an outstanding command of English, grammar and resume writing. One of her many skills sets is recognizing strengths and presenting them clearly.

    Moss edited my book Gladwyne S.W.A.T. I could not have done it without him. Moss is a great guy and a terrific editor. I would work with him again anytime!

      Over the last 2.5 years, David Gertler has helped me edit a book I am writing about chess. As a philosophy professor, I have had 12 books published in the last decade (mostly new editions of textbooks), and so I have extensive experience with editors, proofreaders, compositors, and so on. Mr. Gertler's work has been exemplary -- helpful, insightful, and prompt. He has done research for me, improved my prose, and noticed apostrophes that were backwards. He has marked up around 35 different chapters (sometimes multiple drafts), totaling several hundred single-spaced pages. I have agreed with upwards of 90% of his suggestions, which might be a record in my experience. He is one of the very best.

      It was my pleasure to work with Lorrie from approximately 2010 to 2013. Lorrie was working as a Technical Editor on protocols and clinical study reports and I was a study manager. Lorrie was always professional and kind in her interactions. Her writing recommendations were very helpful and appropriate. I would recommend Lorrie without hesitation.

      Been working with Ed for several years now and he is an outstanding writer, editor, and researcher. He is quick, responsive and versatile


      My experience and unique attention to detail!


      I am currently working on a new book and have excellent writing skills. I edit, write, proofread and can even translate from Arabic to English


      I'm a versatile writer and editor with 30 years in the newspaper business in a variety of markets. Deadline-driven as well as a good long-term project person. Quick study, skilled interviewer, strong editor and in-depth writer who brings stories, subjects and people to life on the page.


      I'm available to edit your writing for grammar/spelling/tense/cohesion - whatever you need! I'm very thorough and will contact you if there is something that doesn't quite make sense, so I can verify that the ideas I have match what you're trying to say.


      Specializing in fiction manuscripts, I also have extensive experience in both academic and journalistic editing. I edit for grammar, spelling, punctuation, and clarity. I can also provide suggestions for story improvements (for example, plot and character development), expose inconsistencies, alert you to problems with point of view, pace, and structure, and give an honest assessment of your story’s appeal. In addition, I provide typesetting services, resume revisions, and general critiques.


      I am a Coopersburg-based writer/editor/analyst. I started writing reports as a quality control data analyst for a fortune 500 chemical company. From there I have written poetry and have published in two books. I am also an abstract expressionist painter. I am dedicated to the creative arts and enjoy helping others express themselves.

      My value is in my experience integrating many different disciplines. Most people are fairly narrow in their expertise and experience, which can be quite limiting. I can step back and see the entire problem that needs solving and then step in and address each one.


      I've been writing, editing, and proofreading for more than 20 years, not including all the business and legal writing that I've done. I do all kinds of projects, but I've mostly been copywriting, proofreading, and editing for a major publisher of medical and nursing books and journals ... print and electronic marketing pieces. My business is great because I am very conscientious and dedicated to meeting deadlines. I hope you'll choose me to assist you!


      I specialize in creative writing or design, but I can help with writing or editing in any outlet, form, or specialty!


      I provide services for editing of documents for English as a second language learners. These are services for people that were not born in U.S.A. or have parents that speak another language other than English.


      I am a Philadelphia-based writer and editor who will make your newsletters pop, your résumé seduce, and your creative writing captivate your audience.
