I’ve greatly enjoyed working with Barbara on a number of publishing projects. Over the last two years I’ve overseen her work as a substantive editor working with student writers, and I’ve also had the pleasure of editing her nonfiction piece, “Finding Home,” which was published in 2019. In every case I’ve found Barbara to be a thorough, thoughtful, and highly organized colleague, and I would recommend her services to anyone.

In their words:

Barbara has helped me with editing and copywriting throughout numerous phases of my career. When I was still in University and directing a newspaper, she helped me make sure our communication was clear and that we were hitting our targets. She was also essential during the translation of my undergraduate thesis. In more recent years, Barbara provided her copywriting services to help me with different written communication materials for my coaching business and other professional documentation I needed. Barbara always took the time to understand what I was looking for, provided the highest quality of work and delivered within the promised time. I highly recommended her work to everyone who is looking for high-quality editing and copywriting services.

Barbara and I worked together as substantive editors on a project during our undergrad. The project consisted of working with six authors and their stories, which were going to be published in an anthology. I was immediately impressed by how knowledgeable Barbara was and her firm grasp of proper grammar, syntax, and edits that will most benefit the piece. She was amazing with the authors—supportive and encouraging—while also providing them with a level of professionalism that ensured their stories were 100% ready for publishing. I would absolutely recommend Barbara to oversee any creative projects as she is a joy to work with and truly knows her stuff.
