She is not only professional, easy to work with and a great thinker, but she also delivers edited work on time, with great editing, and even asks the right questions to make sure we are communicating our intent. I highly recommend Marlene—both as an editor and team member.”

“Marlene of MWords provided me critical editing services that were required to refine my extensive and dense dissertation manuscript prior to publishing. Her advanced training at the Graham School of the University of Chicago, overall understanding and expertise of industry standards, quick turnaround time, and attention to detail improved the level of professionalism the document needed to achieve. Marlene performed these services with a high level of respect for the author, was quick to respond to my inquiries, and provided overall excellent customer service. Bottom line: she understood what I was trying to achieve (being an author herself) and helped me complete the most professional manuscript possible. I highly recommend you consider working with MWords for any of your editing needs.”
