Kemi did a excellent job with understanding my goals and objectives for my upcoming project, my book, and business plan. I recommend her strategic planning, she is very detailed.
Mr. Douglas was selected as editor of an introductory section of an instructional product for me. Though I needed to have the work completed within a considerably short time frame, Mr. Douglas did an excellent job. He listened carefully to understand what was being asked, was very responsive to my inquiries throughout the project, and presented the finished product in a timely manner. I was thoroughly pleased his work and recommend him without reservations. MA, Program Director
I am an editor who has worked with JuLee Brand many times and with the designs she created. I have observed her in development meetings and worked closely with her in implementing her work. JuLee listens to requests from clients and delivers beyond what they have been able to visualize. Her design pieces are both creative and functional, well thought out, and serve to enhance and integrate with the other elements. JuLee is a strong communicator. She brings many years of creativity to the table and always exceeds her previous work. Her passion for design is infectious. Having her on a project insures highly creative design work that perfectly complements the project and is delivered on time. To me, JuLee is the perfect package. She is strongly creative, easy to communicate with, sets the tone for the creative exchange of ideas, understands the needs of clients often more than they do. Working with JuLee Brand is a total joy.
I worked with Ellen on a very large website for a prominent national franchise. She was the lead writer and editor for the project, and I was a contributing writer. I was continually in awe of Ellen's skills and talents. Not only is she an eagle-eyed editor, she's a great writer. Elleb has the ability to bring dry business stories to life, and she always finds a way to creatively approach a story. As a result of her mentorship, I'm rarely intimidated by large website writing projects. She taught me the right way to approach them!
I hired TGC to take professional photos of a vacation rental I have. Bobby came out, was really friendly, professional, and was incredibly efficient. Since his photos were posted on the listing, my bookings have doubled! Thanks Bobby and TGC!
I enjoyed meeting Sher. She is going to help me illustrate my book and I'm very excited!
Melissa is a great editor. Very thorough. Very punctual. I've used her for several years and continue to recommend her services to others.
Marc is a pro writer. He does this writing thing right. He manages to address assignments conversationally, comfortably and in a totally readable way (as a part-time editor, I see a lot of other writers who don't always write for the reader first—but Marc gets it). He's not afraid of a bit of humor, a little attitude, even (dare we use the term) snark—but always appropriately and within the context and confines of the publication, the demographic and the subject matter. I have invited him to write for publications/projects that I oversee, and that should tell you that I trust him to come through in the style and manner I need. You should too.
Joseph is an excellent tutor. He is excited on helping others develop their writing and skills. He goes above and beyond in researching topics, books, etc. to help his students. I highly recommend him!
So many positive adjectives come to mind to describe Bri Clark and her work as the fearless leader of Belle Consulting...to mention just a few, Bri is brilliantly creative, a quick learner and a go getter --all the while creating relevant content exposure to my tribes expanding my reach exponentially! .My online brand is now popping, my books are getting noticed, and I'm told "You are all over the internet" by new connections! Bri is so more than a social media superstar in the flesh... she is also a great trusted expert with a big heart and so much fun to work with!
Fabulous experience using Mary Carlisle as my content editor! From her timely feedback, to thourough editing, and availability through email and phone, the experience was fantastic. Mary was very honest with me in her feedback with suggestions as well as informing me concerning correct trademarking and resourcing. she offered other suggestions for the title of my book and her pricing fee was very reasonable.
I have a college degree in English-Writing, therefore, I have much experience editing. You may get someone who can edit your work fine, but are they educated in that specific area? While earning my degree, I had to constantly write and edit every day whether that be with essays, short stories, articles, poems, etc. I know what I'm doing because I earned it.
With a degree in Songwriting from Belmont University, I have a unique command not only over the mechanics of English grammar, spelling, punctuation and vocabulary, but also a poetic understanding of tone, nuance, emotion, and metaphor. In addition to offering basic proofreading and editing services, I can provide creative feedback and suggestions regarding the way your writing will be perceived by various types of readers, should your project call for it.
As filmmakers, directors and/or editors, who make a living doing the "smaller things", as I call them - meaning any production that is not a feature film or something out of Hollywood, but our day to day (or week to week) productions in our businesses that make our living - we tend to hold a belief that knowing an editing bay like the back of our hand is what makes us the most skilled. And knowing the technicalities of making anything in motion pictures is not to be undermined at all (understanding those technicalities are very important to anything worth its salt), but what I've come to learn as for what captivates people the most is something people - out of pure human nature - can relate to; and if it sounds cliche, it's not, but I am speaking of the "story". The "technicalities" enable to us to enhance that story to an adrenaline rush-experience to the degree that the viewers simply cannot ever forget what they saw that they would have been somewhat tied to anyway. Our calling as filmmakers is to make that the most memorable experience possible.
As an editor, I feel my job is to help make YOUR work shine. It's not about me. I'm just here to help you perfect your work. As a writer, my job is to be your communicator. I write the articles, ads, blog posts or resume you want. I say what you want to say, the way you wish you could say it. Again, it's all about you.
