Testimonials

"El is every writer’s dream. After several years of both structural and line level edits on countless books, I trust them implicitly. They are shrewd, empathetic, and have a hawk-like ability to spot what everyone else misses both in the big picture and in prose. Their expert understanding of the English language is unmatched among the editors I have worked with. El reads fast, and the quality and creativity they deliver is astounding. Their understanding of queer identities especially has been invaluable to my work, and their guidance is a must for any project!"

El is thoughtful, reliable, and precise in the way they provide feedback, uncovering clever ways to improve the flow and structure of a narrative or acting as a reliable sounding board to brainstorm ways to smooth out complicated plot points. While working with El, I’m always impressed by their steady and supportive approach to the writer-editor relationship, topped by their ability to bring out the best in my stories while honouring my vision and individual voice. I have learned so much as a writer through El’s helpful feedback and I highly recommend working with them."
