Testimonials 


Unusual and new coined words are doubtless an evil; but vagueness,
confusion, and imperfect conveyance of our thoughts, are a far greater.

—Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Donna Reeder is the best editor I know.

She is an outstanding writer and editor with gifted language skills, and she understands what works visually.

Donna has produced excellent, meticulous work for me on many occasions over several years: copyediting books, formatting into camera-ready copy (ready to print), indexing several of my books, giving me feedback on several newspaper articles, and selecting book cover
designs.


I have referred colleagues to her, and Donna’s editing improved their works
greatly.

Jurgen De Wispelaere (Senior consulting editor: Basic Income Studies journal; McGill University, Montreal, Canada)

Donna's work is of the highest standard, and I am particularly impressed by her willingness and ability to turn badly written drafts from scholars who are not accustomed to write in English into a clear and enjoyable article.

 
The journal I co-edited, Basic Income Studies, began publishing in 2006.  From the very beginning, Donna Reeder advised us on all matters related to the copy-editing process, including designing the house style and guidelines for authors.

Donna copy-edited manuscripts from the moment the editors accepted them, from 2006 through 2012, and proved to be an excellent addition to our editorial team.


Authors and editors alike have benefited immensely from her recommendations over the years.
 

Suzanne Zipperer (Ten Publishing Services)  

I find Donna a highly skilled editor and proof reader. Her knowledge of various editing styles and her attention to detail are exceptional.
There are those who tag themselves with the titles and those who can really do the work.

Donna's training and experience make her the real thing.

Linda M. L. Frank (Communications Consultant,
Northwestern Mutual Insurance)

Donna’s high work standards, substantial professional skills, and her thoroughness and performance level are all outstanding.
I had the pleasure to work with Donna Reeder on a technical documentation project at Northwestern Mutual. She stepped in to fill in [as a  writer] for me while I was on maternity leave.

She did an excellent job learning how to use new software and learning about an entire industry in which the software was to be used. She provided deliverables [writing and formatting manuscripts as camera-ready copy] on time and with a pleasant attitude.

Donna is capable of working on any type of project because she asks questions and is a quick learner. I’m glad and grateful I had her in my place.

Carol I. Treloar (Information Services Manager,
Northwestern Mutual Insurance)

Her communication skills, both written and verbal, are excellent. I highly recommend Donna.

We worked together on a very significant and intricate project. Donna joined the project two-thirds of the way through the effort. She jumped into the eye of the storm and got up to speed in very little time. She was a very positive addition to the project.

Donna is organized, efficient, and extremely competent. She has an excellent rapport with people.
