I built this business using Craigslist, for free! Best site out there, everything you could ever want or need, what more can you ask for? You can even find a friend there if you're like really desperate. Thank you Craig.

Writers and Artists Groups

Thanks to my friends in the writers groups I've been in. They are the best place to meet other writers with whom you can share your work, which is very important.

One place to meet writers and artists is through Meet-up. They have many writing- and art-related groups. Here are links to some:

Writers    Authors    Writing    Poetry    Publishers    Art    Painters

I've found Creative Circles in general, and the Artist's Way groups in particular, to be very rewarding. Great ways to meet artists of all kinds.

If you're in Los Angeles or anywhere in southern California, I heartily recommend Kelly Morgan's Creative Life workshops for writing and much more.

Client Reviews
I have worked with Michael during my PhD. dissertation between late 2009 and 2010. He edited my writing, proofread and even made some useful suggestions regarding to the paragraph relations. He was very responsive, friendly, and most importantly very much on schedule with his work during the whole process. So, I was really happy with his work and highly recommend him to my friends and to anybody who looks for an editor.

Mike is an all-star editor and extremely flexible. I approached Mike with just a couple months to go before an important dissertation deadline. He readily helped me, despite the fact I should have provided him with my materials many weeks prior. In addition, Mike's detailed feedback and extremely strong editorial skills made my process so much smoother than it could have been. I have happily referred colleagues and friends to Mike for his assistance with various writing projects.

I needed professional editing while working on my Doctoral Manuscript. Our group was given a list of previously used editors, who turned out to be either highly over-rated, or too big for their britches.

So I did a Google search and held my breath! That was until I found Michael on a similar site. His rates were phenomenal, and so were his reviews.

I took a gamble, reached out to him, and will NEVER use another editor again. He really helped me with paper organization, unique APA editing, and gave me great suggestions on how to strengthen particular points.

Out of a group of 10, I was the only one who needed minor final modifications. Mike is easy to work with, gets back to you quickly, keeps you on course. Excellent choice!!

I've worked with Michael for over 3-4 years now, and all I can say is that he is the BEST!! He edited several of my nursing research papers and various written projects. I like the fact that he was always flexible, prompt, proficient, and HONEST. Awesome work, Michael! Thank you so much!! This is legit post from a real client.

I don't know if I would have finished my PhD without Michael's help. He edited each chapter of my dissertation, making comments and suggestions on grammar, style, clarity, etc. He concentrated on specific areas as I requested, always delivered on time or early, and was prompt, courteous, and friendly in his communications. A great find!
