I have been a freelance writer for a number a years. My writing has mostly been focused within the fly fishing industry. I have written for several newspapers, magazines and on a continual basis for a blog for a large national fly fishing company. Recently, I wrote my first book. I used Carly to edit and proof my book. I found her extremely helpful in all facets of editing from proofing to grammar usage as well as providing suggestions and guidance for sentence and paragraph structure. Overall, it was a great experience and I highly recommend her services. Reggie H

I've worked with Wildwood Editing for over a year now. She edits all of my online content, weekly newsletters, website, and books. She finds things I didn't even know were things to look for and I am grateful for her keen eye. It's so nice knowing when I send words out into the world they have been combined through and my voice maintained.

It is with genuine enthusiasm that I recommend Lynn Murphy as a writer, editor, and editorial project manager. Lynn is exceptionally smart and strategic, quickly grasping all relevant data and key points of emphasis, and then communicates in clear and concise prose to suit any business project. At the same time, she has a woman's keen intuition and insight that make her equally well suited for more sensitive subjects and assignments. Lynn also has an editor's eye for great versus more common writing, whether on more complicated subjects or with the simple turn of a phrase that results in the most compelling communication. Net, she can write for you or make your writing better. Importantly, Lynn has invaluable experience in the high-octane world of Hollywood television and film. She brings fire-hardened skills in working successfully under pressure and in a more visible environment with lofty expectations. Finally, and perhaps most significantly, Lynn is a wonderful colleague and teammate. She's punctual, delivers her work on time and on the mark, and always delights with the outcome. She is truly a pleasure with whom to work, and I recommend her most highly. I

I worked with Alex for three semesters as a news editor, then editor in chief, of our campus newspaper, The Pioneer. Alex was consistently one of my strongest editors. He went above and beyond to work with writers one-on-one, providing thoughtful feedback that strengthened their work while keeping their voice in place. Under Alex’s leadership and editing, our opinion section was the strongest I saw during my time in college. He was able to cultivate a variety of unique voices, help them flesh out good ideas for columns and give them the polish they needed to grab reader interest. Alex is a smart, thoughtful and patient editor who will improve your writing while making sure you still sound like you.

Megan was amazing! She was in constant communication since I was out of state. Arrived early and was up for anything we asked. She even brought a couple props for the pics. So much fun to work with. I wish we lived closer so I could book her again for other occasions!

I looked for an editor who had a knowledge of the law to do a tech edit of my novel because I’m not a lawyer. Brian Roberts did a terrific job. He more than met my expectations. He unearthed those paragraphs that needed a re-write to become understandable. He gave characters voice in their own dialect. He could be counted on to finish chapters in a timely fashion. I would seek his services for future projects.

Judith was both editor and publisher of my book in 2012. Her technical skills for the page were exceptional. She has a fine eye for detail and for artistic look. Her keen sense of story made the book better on every level. The prospect of getting a book to print and to e-reader readiness was daunting for this author. Judith handled it all professionally and with good humor. Tasks were accomplished on time. The finished product has garnered many compliments. I'm very happy to be working with her on a second book.

I am willing to take the time to ensure each student succeeds. I check up regularly even after the tutoring sessions are over to confirm a solid understanding of the topic was developed. I do not do work for individuals but instead guide through them the questions and tasks at hand to ensure they are properly approaching the assignment.

About

Developmental and substantive editing. You've tried querying agents with no luck (or maybe you don't even know who to query). Your friends tell you they love your work (or maybe they don't really say anything at all). What do you do next? Do you show it to your wife or your writing group? If you've reached a point where you feel lost, you'll likely need someone with an experienced eye to read it. I'm here for a consultation about your next steps or to read through your manuscript and give you ideas on what your next steps should be.

About

I have been passionately involved in the publishing industry for nearly 20 years. During that time I have had the privilege to be a writer, developmental editor, and copyeditor in technical writing/editing, fiction/nonfiction, academic publishing, and gaming. I love my work and would be thrilled to share my expertise to help you or your company add polish to the written word, whether it be marketing materials, ad copy, fiction, or product documentation. The editor is in!

About

While copy-writes are respected, our need to understand technical books can exceed our ability to remain conscious, listening to them makes them instantly more accessible, and much easier to understand. With the right "Text-to-speech" utilities, the clarity of almost any subject matter can be made open to you.
