"Hayley has worked for me on a couple of large-scale international editorial projects and I couldn’t be happier with her work. She has a fierce, almost obsessive, attention to detail and ruthless will to do each job to perfection. The results are always outstanding. Hayley is simply the best editor I’ve ever worked with. I know her work greatly improved my own—and that of many more professional international writers as well!"
— Dr. Stephen Ross, Associate Professor and General Editor of the Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism

"Ceilidh's assistance with producing a polished paper for my doctoral studies was very much appreciated. Without being a subject expert, she was able to provide me with relevant and useful strategies for improving my paper, both in terms of format and clarity of expression. Her ability to see inconsistencies in the terms I was using helped to provide a more readable paper. She also helped me reduce jargon by identifying and questioning the relevancy of discipline specific language. This along with formatting and grammar help was invaluable. Finally, the way she provided me with multiple forms of useable feedback in terms of track changes and clean documents was very helpful. Ceilidh's professional skills were very much appreciated."
—Joanna Fraser, PhD Candidate, Simon Fraser University
