If writing must be a precise form of communication, it should be treated like a precision instrument. It should be sharpened, and it should not be used carelessly.

Testimonial

Concentrating on research and data gathering is enough to handle during a Major Project. I was delighted to know that I could rest assured and confident in the expertise that Erin, and on the final read, Karen, demonstrated for my writing and editing process. They made the work fun—even though it is hard work. I do not know how anyone could function in a project of this magnitude and NOT have a professional editor. It's worth it a million times over, and it is one of the first recommendations I give to upcoming research colleagues. Thanks for bringing that horse to the gate and setting me up for a successful race to the finish line. (March 2010; Royal Roads University)
