"Meghan went above and beyond what I assumed an editor would do while I was writing my book proposal. She was able to identify what I was attempting to say in my wordy, rocky passages and help me construct a sound sentence. She was thorough in her suggestions to assure the message was clear to the reader. Each review she did came back with a marked up copy of corrections and suggestions along with a note of her response to the proof, what she got from it and what more she would like to see as a reader. Her expertise gave me the confidence I needed in my proposal. I will not hesitate going to Meghan in the future for editing and highly recommend her and the editing services and support she provides."
"I contracted Meghan to complete a variety of copyediting projects for the rebrand of my business, and she was prompt, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. She made it incredibly easy to work with her (providing templates, suggestions for sharing text, etc.), and delivered useful, digestible feedback that I could easily implement. She edited three or four important sales and proposal documents for my service-based business as well as my entire website, even offering a few final tweaks as the site went live. She's a copy editor, so this could be a given, but Meghan has an extraordinary eye for detail. I admire her incredible focus. She's wonderful and fun, too. An added bonus! I highly, highly recommend Meghan Lafferty Editing and will definitely be hiring her again for my next project."

Her attention to detail, careful consideration and thoughtful feedback afforded us the confidence that our application would be considered on the merit of the program without the distraction of errors in grammar and other editing missteps. We received the grant and have no doubt Meghan's contribution to the professionalism of our presentation played a significant part."

She ensures that projects are finished on time. Meghan makes professional revisions while keeping the voice of the author prominent. I cannot say enough!!!"
"After only a few months of helping the communications committee of the Association of Fundraising Professionals - Greater Houston Chapter (AFP-GHC), Meghan has become an integral part of our small team. She continues to be instrumental in elevating communication to our members. She has a keen eye for grammar and syntax and offers great feedback on ways to promote consistent messaging, including creating a style sheet specifically for our chapter. Meghan also has an impressive turnaround time with edits and is always quick when responding to requests. I cannot thank Meghan enough for improving the communication and messaging of AFP-GHC."

"Writing is a personal endeavor. It is scary to give the ideas floating in your head a place to land. As soon as they hit paper, they become open to scrutiny, frightening enough to keep it all tucked away. But, if you take the risk to put your thoughts to paper, I can assure you that your words are safe in Meghan Lafferty’s hands. She adeptly navigates the choppy waters of grammar, style, and structure to provide your writing that extra oomph it needs to stand out. Meghan is timely with her edits and consistent with communication. I asked Meghan to review a cover letter I was writing. I was so impressed with Meghan’s ability to bring out exactly what I wanted to say from the alphabet soup that was my former cover letter. I have always been very timid about having my writing looked at, but with Meghan, I didn’t feel judged or unintelligent. I highly recommend Meghan to anyone looking for a sharp editor with an excellent 'bedside manner.' "
