What my clients are saying…

“I can honestly say that the work put in by Marianne and her enduring support for my project brought it to fruition. My thesis started as a compilation of four different concepts and the Wise Owl herself guided me to the finished project, which I am so proud of. This was my first experience with an editor, but I would advise anyone with less than intimate knowledge of APA format to at least consult with Marianne, an APA guru in her own right. Marianne is personable, flexible, and open-minded to working with any and all writing concepts.”
