Working with Valerie has been a pleasure. I am writing my dissertation for a doctorate in Higher Education Administration and Valerie is a great resource for both grammatical help and overall structural assistance. Having “fresh eyes” to read and provide feedback was extremely helpful for me to streamline some areas and expand on others that were not clear. Valerie’s comments and suggestions helped me polish the technical component and tighten up the focus of the content, resulting in a more professional piece of writing.

Val’s spark for creativity and razor-sharp content propelled our fundraising campaign to the next level. She understands our target audience and provided content that will speak directly to them and, we think, encourage them to give back to their alma mater. We were pleased with our results and look forward to working with her in the future.

I can highly recommend Val Abbott and Writing Help KC. I recently used Val’s services for editing my book and was very pleased with her work. She is very professional, meticulous and detail-oriented and did an excellent job for a reasonable price. She is also very personable and easy to work with. I would definitely use her services again if the need arises.

Any writer’s writing can be good to some extent. Yet, the written word is ever-changing and evolving. An editor is needed to help, and it takes a skilled one to make the writer’s good work become the sort of great work which outshines their own expectations. Val is such an editor. She is very supportive, timely, and flexible too. Her pricing is additionally reasonable. You’ll get not only great service, but also a wonderful teammate for your work.

I have worked with several freelancers…and decided to hire Valerie for a proofreading, revision and re-writing task. She completed the job very quickly and the quality of her work was excellent. I highly recommend Valerie to anyone looking for text revisions, proofreading and other similar work.

Valerie is an amazing writer. She is professional and patient with me. Writing is not my strong area and I get intimidated by the technical grammar as an English language learner. She makes writing enjoyable and the story come alive. She is dependable and gives more than what I expect.

I was working on a Small Business Celebration application. The application is long and complicated for someone like me to complete. I almost gave up to not participate with the program. I met Valerie through SCORE and learned about her professional talent. She turned around a stressful application process to become enjoyable with her creativity in writing. I am very glad to meet her and lucky to work with her.
