“Marie Landau joined a major project midstream as a copyeditor and proofreader for our print and digital fundraising copy and quickly came up to speed with our house style guide for digital publications. Working together over the phone and by e-mail, Marie consistently showed an ease and professionalism in her approach to the material, asking insightful questions in order to learn and contribute to the voice of our organization. In proofreading, Marie was rigorous in her fact-checking, and showed a thorough knowledge of Chicago style. Thanks to Marie's copyedits we maintained good consistency in content, tone, and voice across materials intended for multiple platforms: website copy, e-mail outreach, and social media. Anyone hiring Marie will be gaining a gracious and savvy ally whose deep curiosity and interest in the work will help create clear and compelling copy.”

“Marie has edited four chapters of my dissertation for me so far, and I continue to be impressed with her feedback. She has a keen eye for organizational details and clear phrasing, and she's not afraid of the nitty-gritty of documentation and style guidelines. She's been able to highlight my strongest ideas so that I can clarify my arguments accordingly, and I've received more focused and effective feedback from my committee since she's been copyediting my work. She's really helped me develop and hone my skills as an academic writer.”
