What our clients say about Durham Editors:

Thank you so much for helping with my [application] essays. I got accepted to Harvard, UNC, and a few other schools. I'm so excited! I believe your help was key to my acceptances.

— Hannah Y., Dental School Applicant

I'm a Ph.D. candidate at Duke University and I recently wrote an article about characterizing the unfolding of a self-assembling protein for the journal ACS Nano (currently ranked in the Top 5 journals on Nanotechnology). This article was especially challenging for me to explain in clear English, even though I'm a native English speaker. I learned about Antoinette's writing services and asked her for help. Though Antoinette has no background in nanotechnology, she very quickly provided me an excellent set of corrections, and extremely valuable advice for crystallizing my language to make it more understandable. Her services were definitely a bargain considering the level of expertise she brought to my paper. Using her corrections definitely helped my article reach the standard of ACS Nano and get reviewed and published. I definitely recommend Antoinette for any editing and revising, of any scientific article.

Anybody who has had the experience of writing an article, a paper or a novel, is certainly acquainted with the moments of embarrassment that strike you upon re-reading your own text after it has been published/submitted/sent. Wrong word, wrong spelling, wrong expression... How could you have missed it earlier? How could you have written it in the first place? Durham Editors have spared me a lot of such moments. They carefully proofread, gently correcting my errors and asking astute questions that lead to more coherent and lucid writing. Their help with picture editing was invaluable. (I have no doubt that these very lines would have much benefited from the Durham Editors attention).

Antoinette is a wonderful writing coach. I really enjoyed her approach to helping me with my crazy graduate papers that never seemed to end. She always kept me positive, even in the moments where I was ready to give up and never made me feel like a dork as I worked on the writing process. I know that Antoinette’s help provide me with the tools that I needed to turn in graduate pieces that I was proud of. I would seek her help in a heartbeat if I have the need to write an important writing endeavor in the future.

— Tuesday G., Graduate Student

I'm so glad I was able to find Durham Editors to help me with my research paper. I worked with Antoinette, who is not only so kind and accommodating to your schedule, but an amazing writer. She helped me right from the start of my paper, helping me outline my ideas and structuring my argument the right way. I ended up getting an excellent grade on my paper and couldn't be more thankful for her help. I definitely recommend her services and I will be a regular customer.

— Rachel Y., Graduate Student

I GOT ACCEPTED to the Business School! I wanted to share it with you because first I promised:) but more importantly, I would not have gotten into the BSchool if it weren't for your help! Just wanted you to know that I am very grateful for you help! It was such a pleasant experience working with you, and if I could, I would love to work with you in the future because I am very determined to improve my writing skills and you are the best writing teacher I have ever had!

— Y. F., Business School Applicant

I strongly recommend working with Antoinette - her help made all the difference. I was unsure of what to expect prior to meeting, as I had never had any help with writing in the past. But I knew I needed help; I was applying to nursing school and was becoming frustrated with the writing process. Antoinette helped me to organize my thoughts and made the writing process feel fun and easy. Her assistance allowed me to produce exceptional essays and all of my family and friends that looked them over offered only positive feedback. Antoinette is great at what she does and I will DEFINITELY be using her for any writing projects in the future! Thank you Antoinette!

— Rebecca T., Graduate School Applicant

Thank you so much for your work and revisions on my paper. I just went through them all and wrote up the new, improved personal statement. I feel super confident in this one and I really appreciate all your work and the speed in which you provided the edits. Your edits were brilliant. UPDATE: I wanted to again thank you and let you know I got accepted to every school! My top choice was University of Hertfordshire and that is where I will be attending. Again, thanks so much for your help, I truly appreciate it!

— Emily S., Graduate School Applicant

I used Durham Editors for my Young Adult fiction book and would highly recommend them for any editorial service. My editor was extremely insightful and concise, giving me constructive notes that really gave my story the structure it needed. I was really impressed with how she took my words and really brought it to the next level - she improved the overall flow without changing the story. I really had no idea how much better a good editor can make your written work. I plan to use them again for query letters and for my second novel.

— Ansley C., Young Adult Novelist

So glad you've gone into business so I can contact you about a new brochure and other marketing pieces for my lavender business. I look forward to working with you on these projects and, incidentally, look forward to taking advantage of your free consultation and hour of editing.

— Santa Fe Lavender, Inc.

Durham Editors helped me tremendously by editing business promotions, ads and consultation forms. I would highly recommend them. Ask for Antoinette. She is creative, professional and great to work with! She even allowed me to leave in some of my Texas lingo, and simply built on it.

— Kelly G., Owner of GKG Construction
