Louisa Peck is an extraordinary editor. Over the course of six weeks, she edited my dissertation and took my mundane, error-ridden work from boredom to brilliance! Louisa incorporated university requirements and current writing standards, without compromising my writing style or voice. She is easy to work with and offers specific, technical writing changes that quickly improves the readability of your writing. Louisa works quickly and her services are economical in comparison to other editing services. I couldn't be happier with my finished doctoral dissertation and owe it all to Louisa!Jun 18, 2013Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We meet for a free half-hour chat to determine their writing needs and whether we're a good fit. For remote editing clients, I provide a "sample hour" of editing for $50, and if they are pleased with the work, we go ahead with the entire project.
