What clients are saying...
"The editing work of Margaret Puskar-Pasewicz is excellent. Knowledge of grammar, form, and various style and citation issues sets her apart as does her academic, research, and publishing experience. Her flexibility and eye for practical sense, garnished from years in the classroom, give her a fresh perspective as it applies to content, analysis of prose, and overall coherence of text. Based on personal experience, I highly recommend Margaret as an editor."

"Margaret of MargaretEdits was a quick, efficient, eagle-eyed editor and a pleasure to work with. My book will have many, many fewer errors than it would have without her professional assistance. Though my publisher paid for the first round of her work on my manuscript, I myself paid her to look over the page proofs and would encourage other authors to do so too. I highly recommend her services!"

"I receive my work in a form that is greatly improved over the original. MargaretEdits is careful not to change the sense of what has been written. My work comes back not only grammatically correct, but also evaluated for the aspects of academic writing: clarity of argument, organization, coherence, etc.

MargaretEdits turns work around quickly and professionally. My reader reports often mention how clean my submitted work is and that has helped me to land contracts.

These are smart eyes (Margaret has a PhD in History) cast upon my drafts and I am infinitely grateful."

"Margaret Puskar-Pasewicz has been outstanding from the beginning when editing my 100.000 words manuscript on Zurich education in the sixteenth century for an academic publisher. She provided thorough footnote and bibliographical editing, and read through my text with unceasing attention for details. As a non-native speaker, I was especially grateful for the many times, when she discussed meanings and formulations of my sentences in her comments. She suggested alterations, where formulations had become too dense and obtuse. Margaret was always available during and after the editing process. She was on time with her work, patient and caring with her client."

During my two years at the University of Tennessee Press, I had the pleasure of hiring Margaret for a number of copyediting projects, and she became our “go to” editor for archaeology and anthropology manuscripts. She always meets deadlines, has a keen eye, and is an excellent wordsmith. She knows when to intervene in a text and, more importantly, when not to. In short, I’ll miss working with her. Any university press in need of a copyeditor would be smart to hire her.

Thanks to Margaret’s careful editing and her sound knowledge of food history, my last book manuscript improved significantly. During the eight months we worked together on the text, I appreciated the most that her questions and comments identified weak points in my argumentation. In addition, she was very efficient in detecting inaccurate expressions and other wording problems, which was important for me as a non-native speaker. During the whole revision, Margaret made helpful suggestions on how to improve the text but always double-checked that the changes did not affect its original meaning. Finally, she was very precise in revising the footnotes and the bibliography. It is a pleasure to work with Margaret and I highly recommend her services.
