An absolutely amazing experience. She was a mentor and so professional. I am glad to have chosen this editor.
I tried amateur copy editors and was disappointed. I tried to do it myself, and was chagrined. I had Jo Gilmour do it, and it was done right! She is easy going, never flustered with changes, and works hard to get it right. I will use her again.
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.
After my session with Dorothy I went back to an article I had written and was able to edit it in one shot! With all of the notes I took from our session I gained a better understanding of where my areas of opportunity were to improve. She is a phenomenal teacher & excellent writer! Dorothy you saved my blog!
I worked closely with Georgia during the writing and editing stages of my dissertation. She was both a supportive mentor and professional editor. After a successful defense and landing my dream job, I have continued to work with Georgia on book chapters and articles as I move towards tenure. Georgia offers invaluable editing services; she is a great communicator and is responsible to deadlines. She is a problem solver with extensive experience in her field. I highly recommend Matrix Editorial, particularly for advanced graduate students and junior faculty in need of editorial services and project support.
Tanya was wonderful to work with. She was thorough with the work, had an eye for the details and made sure to make me shine. Something every author looks for in an editor. She went beyond what any other editor has done for me, extremely excellent work quality. I found her to be helpful when it came to questions, always taking the extra step with a patient demeaner. Tanya has cemented a role in my world as the best fiction editor EVER! I highly recommend her services.
I’m writing this letter to recommend Sarah Dorfman for your current employment opportunities. When I was the Marketing Manager at The Wharf Marketplace in Monterey, California, I hired Sarah to write for the website, menus, and marketing materials. She is an excellent writer and detailed editor; a combination I was having trouble finding. After working with Sarah on those projects I realized her skills in other areas that I was becoming too busy to handle. She set our social media in motion and was not only successful at growing our likes and followers, but she was great at starting conversations and getting people to interact with our brand. At the time The Wharf Marketplace was a new business and Sarah had a major role in helping us stay on brand, gain loyal customers, earn the respect of fellow business partners. Sarah was very valuable to me, and I’m confident you would have the same results. Sincerely, Carrie Crook Former Marketing Manager for The Wharf Marketplace, Monterey, California. 2013-2015
Cindy is the best of the best! She is someone you just want to get to know. She handled everything so beautifully and led us through it each step of the way. Our wedding was better than we could have ever hoped for! She made the entire wedding so personal and even wrote the most incredible poem about our lives together. We are going to have it framed as a lifelong reminder! With Cindy performing our marriage, we always felt comfortable that everything was in control and would go well - and believe me, that's a great feeling! After all, your wedding is your most important day! Cindy doesn't only have a lot of experience marrying people, but she has been a speaker for years! So she is very used to talking to big crowds. This was so wonderful, because she came across so natural, she could be heard well, and really knew how to "present" the ceremony so that it all comes off without a problem. She is also great for those awkward "on the spot" moments where no one knows what to do or say. (We had one of those with my mother-in-law, but Cindy handled it beautifully!) Everyone was so pleased and very impressed. She led us through our rehearsal so we all knew what to do and what to expect. She helped us to write our vows without being intrusive or pushy. She was sooooo helpful! She organized our music for us, helped us to chose readings and just put together and overall ceremony that blew us away! Oh, and she also created our wedding bulletins! They were really awesome! I just loved them!!! I will recommend Cindy to everyone (and do). She is that on-in-a-million type of person you just hope will come into your life. We will always be grateful that she came into ours!!!!
I have hired Dale to help me translate online training material into book manuscripts for a client in the financial services sector. He asked the right questions to understand the scope; stayed in communication during the process; and brought the jobs in on time and budget. Thoroughly professional, experienced, and brings a sly midwestern wit that makes working with him a pleasure.
Joe was co-author and editor on MY LIFE IN FOCUS. He helped me get my true voice on the page, was receptive to comments, helped design page layouts, and didn't stop working until the job was done right. He also handled all social media marketing for the book, including creating and managing multimedia Facebook posts. Joe's work was professional, punctual, and invaluable. - Gianni Bozzacchi, author, MY LIFE IN FOCUS: A PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNEY WITH ELIZABETH TAYLOR AND THE HOLLYWOOD JET SET
Katlyn has over 20 years of expertise and world travel that make her an ideal Spanish teacher. She has experience with multiple dialects and idioms that greatly enhance her level of translation services and knowledge of the Latino market.
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 have hired Molly as both a copywriter/editor and as a researcher/indexer. In all of these roles, she brings stunning attention to detail and refreshing creativity. Highly recommended!
I am an English teacher with a knack for writing and editing, and any work I do is guaranteed to be accurate.
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 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'm an Ivy League grad who hated SAT/ACT classes with passion, so I set out to ensure that other students could get one-on-one training that makes sense and caters to both their strengths and weaknesses. I also don't prescribe any particular set of materials, so we can work with what your student already has and save you money.
I specialize in helping writers make their work clear, concise, and well-organized. The most effective and persuasive writing is that which allows the reader to spend mental energy on the content and ideas presented, not getting stuck on details and structure that obscures those ideas. This is what I focus on bringing out and helping my clients and students accomplish in the their writing. I have 6+ years of professional experience as a writer and editor of a wide variety of genres. I've worked as a content writer for a website receiving 250,000+ hits/month, a lead technical writer in the educational software industry, and a writing tutor to over 100 different students and writers. I've edited everything from short fiction and novels, to academic papers and theses, to web and marketing copy, to operations manuals and technical guides, to news articles and feature pieces.
