Karen was a life saver. She taught me to be a better writer. I am indebted to Karen for her speed, her accuracy, and her APA skills.

My experience with Karen Graham, Final Proof Editing, has been very helpful throughout my post-secondary experience. Karen efficiently responds to my writing with positive feedback and informative suggestions. During the editing stages of my papers, I found it helpful when Karen leaves side notes, as they provide me with tips for the future and help me understand why certain changes need to be made. With Karen’s editing and writing coach assistance, I have been able to achieve exceptional grades and become a better writer. Throughout my journey, I have become a confident writer with an array of different writing techniques thanks to Karen.

Karen is an outstanding individual to work with as a faculty supervisor.  She collaborates with students in support of them reaching their goals while also being up front and realistic about timelines.  I rely on Karen to work closely with my students and use her thorough knowledge about the Royal Roads OLP requirements in order to ensure that students work is approved.  I have yet to have any work edited by Karen, returned to any of my students after final submission and Karen has worked with upwards of 18 students at least, alongside me alone.  Karen’s attention to detail and her collaboration with the Royal Roads Academic Community are a few of her greatest strengths and I highly recommend her work.

Karen was wonderful to work with. She was prompt with her responses and helped me to meet my deadlines. I appreciated not just edits that improved my work, but comments that helped me to improve my writing overall.

Karen edited my capstone project final report for my Master’s degree. I can’t say enough about her professionalism, work ethic, attention to detail, and compassion. Karen was always prompt to return edited chapters and also provided advice on how to best organize material. This was my first time working with an editor and I feel very privileged to have worked with Karen – she’s amazing!

You are very conscious of deadlines and work quickly and efficiently. You were easy to work with, and accommodated the idiosyncrasies of my graduate school in the UK. Overall your editing work was excellent.

Thank you so much for your edits.  They have really made a difference.

My thesis supervisor noted that working with Karen improved my work and that her edits and advice were spot on for the academic context and departmental guidelines for my work.


I look forward to talking with you about the editing and/or publishing support you require.
