Marti has been great. I have a complex manuscript. My writing style can be too bureaucratic, a result perhaps of too many years in the Australian Public Service. Marti understood clearly what type of revisions I needed. She did the work effectively and expeditiously. Marti has been the best I have used so far. Others I have used have done little more than run a spell checker through my manuscript. Marti was able to advise ways to improve the flow and logic of my arguments. Of course Marti also picked up on the smaller points too. Highly recommended. James Lindsay
My experience with Ms. Petrena Wilbur was always very professional, punctual and responsive. I value greatly the work that was done. Ms. Wilbur is very similar to a college English professor who gave me great support and leadership on how the write. I am trilled with the work provided to possibly one of the most important documents that have written in my life time. So grateful. Thank you so very much Ms. Wilbur for your precise work.
Brendan worked with me on a book project. He was a great sounding board for flow and voice in addition to being an excellent fine editor. His newspaper background gives him a keen eye for audience and clear and efficient expression of ideas. I found him to be easy to work with and very responsive to my needs. I highly recommend Brendan.
Nick Courtright is a name you should know as a tutor, consultant, editor and supporter. I have a "long poem" that needed someone to help me get my arms around it, and Nick did, by understanding and taking the big picture view. Upon completing it I have returned to Nick for guidance as to self-publishing or submitting to publishers. He is knowledgeable, to say nothing of the important attributes of being an excellent poet, articulate, scholarly. I plan to have Nick's help in assembling poems to submit for publication, for editing, selecting and market analysis. He knows more than I do, and I benefit from that. Bill
Vincent is the most professional writing editor I have ever seen. I went through quite a few writing editors before I met Vincent, and I have to say that the detailed service Vincent provides obviously tops. Vincent is also very fast, and always keep the work down before deadline. I highly recommend.
Morgan is excellent! She's helped me edit a number of essays, and has a great eye for organization and coherence. She also returned notes to me in a very timely manner. She's a pleasure to work with, and far more concise in her feedback than other editors I've encountered. Additionally, Morgan's social media abilities are exemplary, and something I plan to take advantage of in the nearby future.
I've been using Erin to edit my novels since early 2013. I've had two previous editors who were very capable, but Erin's skills are off the chart. She is easy to work with and handles each new job quickly. She has edited four of my novels and will edit many more...as long as I write them.
An amazing editor. Not only shfixed all the Grammer issues I had in my cover letter, but she took a look at my resume and helped me write about skills I had on the resume but did not show in my cover letter. I will definitely be coming back to her again for any editing I will need in the future.
In my editing I am very adept at scanning a page of text and finding the things that don't fit (mistakes, typos, flow issues). I am also very passionate about working with writers to use the text they have created in order to achieve the best possible end result. As a writer, I use my love of language, my keen observational skills as an artist and art historian, and my wry sense of humor to convey my personality and get a message across.
I am an independent copy editor and proofreader. I have edited school papers, website content, articles, white papers, and a book.
I think the difference is passion. I love what I do and it shows. I get to play with words, help people express themselves and be creative for a living.
I'm a very exacting editor. I pay attention to all the usual things -- spelling, grammar, punctuation, tense, consistency, facts -- and also check formatting and images. Being a graphic designer as well as a writer and editor helps me make sure a document is not just correct, but also "looks" right.
I am able to complete Transcription quickly and I type at a rate of speed faster than most transcribers which means that for larger jobs that require an hourly rate-I ultimately cost less while still giving you a superior product.
I'm a passionate, uber-educated writer with 20+ years in the professional field. Medical and technical writing are my particular fortes, with an emphasis on research, instructional design, and software development. My dissertation was a novel, so academic and creative writing are happily in my wheelhouse. I love clean, cogent, artful prose. Any piece of writing can be made more streamlined, sleek, precise. That's where I come in.
