Working with the Writer was a very positive experience from start to finish. He was very clear from the beginning of what type of work he would be doing and sent over a clear contract outlining everything. He was incredibly fast with the turnaround time of my manuscript, and the quality of his work was excellent. I also appreciate how honest he was with his pricing and time spent. He quoted a range of how long it would take to edit, and he only charged towards the low end of that range - so you can definitely know that The Writer is honest with the time spent. I would highly recommend this editor to any potential clients, and give him a full 5 stars in every area of work quality, professionalism, responsiveness, value, and punctuality.

Todd copy-edited my association's 50th Anniversary book/History of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. We had numerous challenges, such as strange formatting in Word, ridiculously large file sizes, et cetera. Todd not only overcame those challenges (which were on my end, not his!), but delivered the project on time with excellent edits. I'm generally a bit harsh on copy editors -- I used to be one full-time -- but his work elevated the copy to where it really needed to be & exceeded my expectations. I will definitely be working with him again! Highly recommend.

      It's a pleasure to work with someone who can communicate the core of your message even better than you can! Luanne "gets" it. A beautiful writer and excellent editor, Luanne is a joy to work with. A true professional!

      Tom was very thoughtful in his feedback on my document (85,000 words) and often offered alternative phrasings in the comments section. He queried things he did not understand clearly and I never felt like he skirted over any sections without checking things properly. His rates were also extremely reasonable for the work done. I was thankful to have another set of eyes to check through my work.

        I've worked with Debbie for 18 months but have been a friend for more than that. I love the way she writes (articles and other materials for our company). She is organized, logical, gets to the point but includes human stories and interactions that bring the information in focus. She is honest and real and this comes through in her writing.

        Sarah is my go-to editor/proofreader for every project; from resume design and professional writing, to academic assignments and even creative pieces. I have absolute trust in her knowledge of grammar and punctuation, as well as her eye for layout and her ear for perfect word choice. She is direct and tactful in communicating her recommendations. Our interactions have been fun, smart and time efficient. I always come away feeling uplifted.

        About

        I am an editor of and consultant for academic and creative writing. I can help students doing papers or freelance writers. I can help you finish a project you've been procrastinating on or help you start and finish the project you've always dreamed of. I've been hired by people of all ages and abilities. I have worked with a wide range of people from published, award-winning poets and other writers to Ivy League professors and doctoral students. I have also worked as an English tutor with high school and college students for over 20 years. I teach workshops on publishing and have worked at several presses. As an editor in the creative writing field people appreciate my directness and ability to encourage his or her distinct voice for each piece. In an academic and tutoring assignment it's my organizational skills and my ability to look for themes, find cohesion, and cut repetitions that helps writers the most. Finally, I am fair and honest with my estimates and communicate any possible fluctuations with my commitments in a timely manner.
