On the Blog: What Is Line Editing?

Raise Your Words, Not Your Voice. It Is Rain That Grows Flowers, Not Thunder.

—Rumi, 13th century persian poet

What People Are Saying…

“Zulaikha edited and proofread my Islamic children’s story on loving family and friends. The feedback and suggestions that she provided throughout the process helped a lot. I had a better alternative given in her suggestions. A very kind person to work with and talented at what she does. If you are looking for help, look no further.”

Adam, United Kingdom

“I was pleased by your professionalism and your ability to stick with the timelines provided. I also liked that you were thorough, so despite not having Nigerian roots you took your time to research parts of the story to ensure that your feedback was robust and effective and you were not afraid to ask questions about terms which seemed foreign to you.”

Oyinda Kazeem, Nigeria
