Editing

'Thank you so much for editing my journal article … Having a professional to review grammar, syntax and formatting made all the difference to the quality of the final manuscript. It now flows better, the referencing is consistent and the headings formatted. I am very happy with the final product, and, more importantly – so are my supervisors.'

At the request of the editors compiling the volume, I copyedited and formatted all articles and other material in this volume in preparation for its submission to the publisher.

Writing

We can all congratulate ourselves on the quality of this product, but you deserve special praise. Without your dedicated and creative efforts and your attention to detail, no publication could have ever conveyed the direction, content and mood of the discussion [between the Pacific partners] so authentically. Quite apart from your thoroughness, I particularly valued your dedication to the Pacific, evidenced by your determination to reflect the original contributions as closely as possible, to give the Pacific partners a voice – their voice. I believe you did this exceptionally well.'
