What some of my clients have said about me …

Laura’s engagement with my story was insightful and detailed. I appreciate her dividing her analysis of the story in terms of story problem and story question, characterisation, point of view, scene and structure and plot; this helps to clarify some of the issues in the story and the way they might be addressed. I found especially useful and illuminating her focus on story question.

Laura is a skilled and generous editor, and I am grateful for the time and effort she has put into her assessment. Her suggestions demonstrate an understanding of the story and a commitment to helping me fulfil my intention for it. I look forward to redrafting the story with her suggestions in mind.
In working with an editor, it was very important to me to find someone with excellent attention to detail, who could keep to tight deadlines and who took pride in their work. This has certainly been my experience working with Laura over several years.

Laura is efficient, professional and reliable. I have especially appreciated Laura’s initiative with regard to keeping stylistic conventions between issues of our publication consistent.

Laura has never failed to submit work to deadline and frequently over-delivers in terms of work supplied. I would not hesitate to recommend Laura as an outstanding professional in her field to any individual or institution producing high-value publications.

Laura worked with Engineers Without Borders Australia to deliver our 2018–19 Annual Report, which included: researching content, interviewing staff in Australia and overseas, drafting articles to describe our work and impact over that year and eagle-eyed editing. She was easy to work with and professional, delivering high-quality writing, that while relevant to the technical engineering sector, is also interesting and informative for all.
Laura offered exceptionally clear, calm and well-considered editorial guidance for my PhD thesis. The track changes, margin comments and style sheet Laura provided made it particularly easy to view and understand the editorial changes she suggested, while still leaving the final choice of amendments to me. The turnaround time was also quick and the cost very reasonable. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Laura’s editorial services.

Having Laura edit my thesis enabled fresh eyes to scan thousands of words so familiar to me that I couldn't see the wood for the trees. Her attention to detail and knowledge of the editing protocols gave my work continuity and clarity; and gave me the confidence to tackle the final final draft.

Laura conducted an evaluation of the pilot of a Nonviolent Communication program I ran in men’s prisons. She worked on all facets of the evaluation: refining our feedback form, analysing the data, collating my notes, creating graphics and incorporating relevant quotes from inmates.

She massaged all of this material into a well-written, coherent and powerful report that helped me refine and improve the next iteration of the program, which has now been delivered successfully in both men’s and women’s prisons.

Laura was a pleasure to work with and I found her service invaluable.
