Tough Prose services
“Of all the editors I’ve worked with, Maureen Jennings is the absolute best. Not only does she copyedit, but she also possesses an acute sense of language usage and nuance. I always re-read the pages she’s edited and learn from her comments. What more is there to say?” — Robin Beeman author, of A Parallel Life and Other Stories, A Minus Tide, and The Lost Art of Desire.
“Maureen's editorial services are top notch. She is a great copyeditor. She is also proactive, timely, and responsive. I have commissioned Maureen for editorial services for the data science blog and highly recommend her.” — Ann Spencer, Data Science Content, Product, and Strategy, Domino Data Labs
“Maureen is great at PR, events, and of course, writing. But more than that, when I needed a second (or first) set of sharp eyes on a piece of writing, I could always count on her to improve it, whether it was soothing the edges of an awkward sentence, finding just the right word or phrase, or spotting the grammatical error or typo. I’d happily recommend her for any kind of writing, editing, or media relations project.” — Lisa Anderson Mann, senior copywriter, O’Reilly
