Monica was AWESOME. I really think she was extremely professional and a very strong editor. She was very responsive and quick to turn things around. A+++
Our team hired mike after an impressive interview, and after thorough review of his outstanding work portfolio. During his time with us, his dependability, consistency and impeccable attention to detail in conjunction with the ability to manage a team of other freelance writers allowed him to progress from a freelance writer to Editor In Chief. He also held the title of Team Manager, and his team consistently achieved and exceeded weekly and monthly goals. As Mike's project was concluded, our administrative staff have saved his contact information because he will surely be contacted when his expertise is required in the future. It is without any hesitation that I recommend this outstanding individual.
Mike is an excellent editor. He is incredibly thorough and attentive, and is very skilled at explaining why something isn't working. I would highly recommend his editing services.
Laura worked with me on an extensive book project on contemporary art for the University of Lüneburg, and her profound grasp of the subtleties of language was invaluable, particularly in editing such complex subject matter. As a translator it is extremely important to me to be able to work with a good editor, who is not only technically versed in grammar and punctuation, but also approaches each text with sensitivity and understanding, as Laura Freeburn certainly does.
"I had the pleasure of working closely with Gretchen Kalwinski for nearly three years at TransUnion--and I can't say enough good things about her. Gret is a writer/editor super-pro who also happens to be really good people. At TU, she was an ace at creating all kinds of digital and print marketing content; she was our department's resident AP style guru and stingiest proofreader; she's a creative thinker with great business instincts; and she's the kind of generous colleague who might pop into your cube offering things like a) salted dark chocolate squares b) black-currant flavored stress-relief lozenges and c) cutting-edge SEO and email best practice insights. And that's just what she did in that one job. Having seen up close a lot of the other work she's done, I can also tell you she's unbelievably versatile. B2B corporate copywriter, editor in many places, arts/culture journalist, creative writing instructor....no matter the communication challenge, Gret nails it. P.S. I'm happy to talk on the phone or email, if you'd like to hear me rave more.
Heidi is amazing she is professional, easy to talk to and most of all, she transformed my book into a more interesting and readable format. Her input gave me the confidence to put my story out into the world. I would recommend Heidi to anyone who needs an editor. She understands what the writers challenges are she gets it. Shes great!
Josh is a wonderful videographer. He has a creative way of telling your story that is warm and thoughtful. His keen and perceptive attention to capture your essence will leave your audience with a great first impression of you.
I have worked with Steve on a variety of projects, as a contributor to his anthologies (he's a fine editor) and as a collaborator on stories. He has always displayed a great attention to detail and produces excellent work (check out his "Blue Kingdoms" series where he has designed covers, edited others and contributed fiction. First rate work and a perfect trifecta of skills). When I developed the idea for a serial fiction series, Steve was one of two writers I asked first to contribute.
i worked for elaine when she was editor of the chicago tribune's home & garden section. i loved working for her because she always trusted her writers' vision, and let us soar where we believed we might find an updraft. she is one of the hardest workers i know. and recently she produced a spoken word concert, where again she showed her limitless capacity for imagination, for bringing together artists, and for attending to every detail. she is fabulous.
Retired English instructor of high school and post secondary levels, and published author is willing to accept proofreading and editing jobs from other writers.
I presell and motivate clients and prospects. I do copywriting, editing and proofreading and provide creative marketing strategies. I'm a team player.
I am a Chicago-based freelance editor with a master's in English. My passion for clean, clear and engaging copy is matched only by my love of traveling. I genuinely enjoy what I do and believe it manifests in my work.
American expat living and working in Quito as a freelance editor and writer. I've worked on long and short term projects and am available for last minute jobs.
I am a Special Education and English Language Arts teacher, so I am able to offer services to people with special needs and those with more general needs. My Bachelor's degree is in English and I worked as a freelance writer for 5+ years, mainly with a company that assisted with resumes, cover letters, college applications, proofreading, web content, essays, and so on. I also have a certificate in editing and have edited two published books. I have a strong background in English, literacy, and writing. I use research-based educational programs to create a student's learning plan, while also integrating the latest educational technology to complement each student's learning program. I create individualized and differentiated programs for students of all ages, learning styles, skill levels, and needs.
Professional editing and writing by a published author and experienced marketing manager. We work on short and long term projects.
I am an experienced writer and editor. If you can't figure out exactly what to say, I can say it for you! If you've written something, but want to make it better or more effective, I can change it from wimpy to powerhouse! If you are not a native English speaker/writer, I can review your document and make sure it is in correct English. Whether it's an email, a letter, a script, a manuscript, or policies and procedures manuals, I can help you say what you mean. I specialize in clear and understandable plain English.
I love editing photos and videos. I am passionate about adding life to pictures that appear colorless or with dim light, with less people or more, that lack effects or are dull etc., and so, my work gives me immense pleasure.
Simply because i work hard to achieve successful projects.
I've been in the book publishing business since 1987 and continue to flourish in this industry despite its current state of flux! I've been an in-house acquisitions editor at a major trade publishing house in NYC; in fact, I worked in the editorial departments of Putnam/Perigee, Basic Books, and HarperCollins. I have a Certificate in Book and Magazine Publishing from the NYU Summer Publishing Institute. I've been a bestselling author and done extensive publicity and platform building for my books. I have a degree in Latin, minor in English Linguistics and Grammar, and studied line editing and structural editing from working with top NYC editors. I've ghostwritten and done developmental editing on many bestsellers including New York Times bestsellers. I have testimonials from many name-brand clients. I do not take on clients unless I feel I am the right person for them. I am motivated by the desire to help other people create books that will change the world for the better. I never give 100 percent; I always give more. Going above and beyond is just the way I'm wired. Hence, I'm selective about the projects I'll take on. I work within people's budgets and with where they are, right now, in the process. If I can't help you, I'll do the best I can to hook you up with a highly qualified professional I trust. I don't make recommendations lightly.
I have 8+ years of professional editing and proofreading experience. I am meticulous but also creative.
