Testimonials

See what others had to say about WordWitlox:

Cathy Witlox is everything you could want in a copy editor. She is organized and thorough. She has a fine eye for detail and an encyclopedic knowledge of grammar and style. Above all, she has respect for the written word, including the judgment to understand when rules must be kept and must be broken. And she also has patience and a sense of humour that helps in navigating through the many snags that inevitably show up in a long manuscript. I’ve worked with several copy editors over the years, and she is among the best.”

—Cathy McKercher
Author, The Canadian Reporter

 

Cathy’s unique flair for the English language transforms phrases into easy-to-consume prose that’s as lip-smacking a treat as cotton candy at the midway!”

Worthy of special note is the outstanding editing work performed by Cathy Witlox. Your dedication to correcting errors made in the initial draft, your exemplary attention to the smallest of details, and your perceptive questions made you an absolute joy to work with. Thank you especially for working late at night in order to meet publisher deadlines.”

You made grammar fun when another person could have turned it into a very dry discourse that put us to sleep.”
