Testimonial

"I worked with Marg on the final edit of my PhD thesis.

She is an expert in academic writing and in CMoS, she is reliable, and works with attention to detail. While we agreed that the focus would be on line editing, she still took time to point out content-related issues in the text. Thanks to her, I was able to finish my dissertation on time (with a tight schedule). And thanks to her editing, the overall quality of the text has greatly improved.

If you are looking for an outstanding editor with excellent communications skills, do hire Marg."
