From business blogs to exhibition catalogues, we’ll put our pen to work for you

No more wording, spelling, or grammatical errors. Every comma will be in place; every sentence will sound natural.

  • “For a novelist, it’s crucial to know your writing is in good hands. As for editing help, I can’t think of anyone I’d more willingly recommend than Ben. He has smoothed the wrinkles, inconsistensies and bad style in my writing so many times that I now go directly to him for all my English-language needs. Ben’s skillful craftsmanship, superb ear for the all-important subtleties, and reliable, efficient service make him worth every penny.”
    -Jussi Valtonen, Finlandia Prize-winning novelist of He Eivät Tiedä Mitä Tekevät
  • “Ben is a great communicator, awesome to work with, and achieves results through his systematic approach to getting things done.”
    -Rami Korhonen, CEO, Playmysong
  • “Ben did a great job helping us understand how to communicate with clients around the world. Not only did he create our website and outreach copy – he also helped establish an innovative plan for Ruste’s future development.”
    -Tuomas Nurminen, CEO, Ruste Protection
