“Beth Stilborn has an eagle eye. As an editor myself, I’m pretty good about proofing my own writing – but I cannot count the number of times Beth has caught that elusive typo for me nonetheless. She is thorough, meticulous and unflagging in her dedication to, and appreciation for, good writing. In today’s publishing world, manuscript submissions have to be absolutely error free – we can’t afford a typo or a grammar flub. Beth will ensure that your writing sparkles!”

“When I hired Beth to edit my picture book manuscripts, I never expected to enjoy the process. She made it easy to manage this essential step, and I appreciated her friendly, down-to-earth style. Beth’s feedback exceeded my expectations. She provided clear, detailed comments to explain her edits and suggestions, and her ability to immerse herself in the text often helped me view my writing in a new way, which was exciting. I look forward to working with Beth on my next project!”

“Beth is a grammar magician. I found myself really enjoying the gentle corrections and insightful suggestions she made as she edited my latest project. Not only is my masterpiece now thoroughly and meticulously edited, I also feel I have learned a great deal in the process. If I could pay Beth to correct my emails, I would. She is so professional, precise, and knowledgeable that working with her is a joy. I happily recommend Beth and look forward to sending her many more manuscripts.”
