Tracy Stonestreet

“I was extremely impressed with the attention my project received, both in written comments and in my one-hour session with my editor! Leslie provided thoughtful, thorough, and actionable feedback. She worked through both the big ideas and the small writing tics, helping me see where I could easily improve my project. She was also very friendly and open, and seemed genuinely interested in my success. I would recommend this service to anyone who needs to get their writing to the next level.”

Ana Perry

“The manuscript assessment I received from Katherine Fusco was incredibly helpful and so generous. I am grateful to have had someone read my work so closely and to come up with practical paragraph by paragraph strategies for how to make my argument clearer as well as how to address big picture issues. The comments were clearly articulated in such a way that held my own writing accountable to the goals I claimed to put forward. Katherine also showed a breadth of knowledge of theorists like José Esteban Muñoz and was able to help strategize more effect use of theory throughout my text. While this was definitely an investment, the price is fair for the work especially if you are looking to get your writing to a broader audience and better place. I would 100% recommend these services to my friends and colleagues.”

“I’m SO happy I hired Flatpage. I’m self-publishing my artist’s book, so pay-as-I-go editorial support has been an ideal solution. Cara made the whole experience super user friendly for me. Adam gave me incredibly valuable advice on layout, style, and content. Tim’s astonishing attention to detail revealed the subtlest errata that even my most fastidious friends hadn’t turned up. Tim even provided the unicodes for hard-to-type special characters! I’m so impressed and grateful. I’m sure I’ll hire Flatpage again for every book I ever write.”
