Todd edited 15 poems for me that I am publishing. He did a great job, maintaining the heart and soul of my work while improving word choice, meter and readability. He is very reasonable with prices, work came in ahead of schedule, even when we had some technical glitches and I was out of touch for a few days. I will definitely call upon him again and give him my highest recommendation. I interviewed 5 editors and gave them all the same poem to edit. Todd was the only one that showed respect for what I had already written and appreciated my style and tone. This was my first time hiring an editor and Todd made it a painless experience.

Todd was the perfect choice for my small project. He responded to emails in a timely fashion and was upfront about his role in my project. Todd took it a step further and made suggestions on my project and when I took his advice, he edited that too! He was very encouraging and helped me to feel good about my project. I had a few small questions where I wanted his opinion and he immediately responded with his thoughts. Todd was more than an editor to me

Dave is an excellent editor to work with. He is a great listener, collaborator and is responsive. He understood my vision and helped me get my book ready for publishing. It was important for me to feel comfortable with my editor and Dave did just that. He is open, honest and supportive. I highly recommend Dave and will continue to use him for my future projects.

Diane is a phenomenal editor with an eye not only for the smallest detail but for the big picture as well. To begin with, she has done a wonderful job editing and proofreading my novels, not just catching typos or pointing out missing words, but finding inconsistencies in descriptions (people, places, things), timelines, etc. She has applied the same discerning attention to my non-fiction. Diane has also been editing and proofreading copy for my advertising business for more than two decades now. That copy has run the gamut from lengthy brochures to video scripts to print advertising to web content to sales presentations, and so on. Additionally, for my licensing business, she has done an equally superb job reviewing complex legal agreements. Bottom line: She has never failed to make my writing better in some way, whether it’s by flagging a phrase or sentence that could be clearer or by catching a typo. I always have a lot more confidence in the clarity and accuracy of my work after Diane has put her stamp on it.

I've worked with Monica for nearly 15 years on projects ranging from YA books to technical articles in trade magazines. I appreciate her careful evaluation of editorial content, attention to detail, proactive communication and on-time delivery. The last few projects have involved fiction and nonfiction book editing for my publishing company. As usual, she came in on time and under budget. I strongly recommend her to writers, editors, and publishers looking for a professional copy editor or proofreader.

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

While I'm obsessive and thorough when it comes to removing errors, I'm also in love with the flexibility of language and feel that every project has its own distinct personality. I am aware and adaptable, always conscious of the overall tone and focus of a piece to ensure it represents you and your needs.

I have written one book, "Walking in Dominion, by Jean Tendongho " I do writing and editing. My English is standard, and I promise my clients the best value for their money.

About

As a Harvard-educated English major with an interest in psychology and, quite frankly, a boatload of neuroses (if you think one informs the other, you're probably right!), the intricacies of wordplay and effective messaging have always fascinated me. After graduation, I chose to go into the field of communications, which provided me with a solid foundation in PR and marketing writing styles. Despite trying to leave this field in my next role, the passion to write -- and, even more pressingly, to edit -- kept coming back to me and guiding the projects I sought out. In my full-time positions, I have ghostwritten legal blogs for the senior counsel of a major tech corporation; edited numerous academic manuscripts for successful submission and publication, as well as a doctoral dissertation; authored Commencement speeches for a university dean; and much more. My diverse background means I'm able to tackle pretty much any project and any content that is fired my way.

About

I have succeeded across a wide variety of assignments, long and short term. I have written editorial op/eds, letters from the CEO, corporate and non-profit communications, analysis, screenplays, ads, marketing collateral and have loved it all. It's always about telling a story in a beautiful or compelling way to connect with your readers. I am not patient, focused, skilled and intuitive.
