Donald is the best editor I have known. Truly impressive! As a non-native speaker (my native language being Russian), in my long academic career I always had to depend on some professional editorial assistance, sometimes using several people at once. Donald's expert help seems to do the trick! He has helped me with articles, job application materials, conference presentations, and a book proposal. He does all the things I need and does it quickly, efficiently, and reasonably, providing constructive suggestions and unending (often much needed and appreciated) encouragement.

Going beyond technical copy editing issues (all explained in detail), Donald also provides extremely useful content suggestions, poses interesting questions, and points out further potential lines of inquiry. All that without being obtrusive, pedantic, or patronizing, and with a great deal of common sense and erudition.

I cannot recommend him more. He came recommended and I've since recommended him to my other colleagues (PhD students and college & university professors), who are also very happy with his work. Finally, his prices are very fair. I highly recommend Positively Write!

English is my second language and I needed someone to review my grammar. They did a great job helping me with word choice and writing style. They also answered my questions regarding their edits and writing rules. I also appreciate the quick turn around and they helped me meet all my urgent deadlines.

Donald also edited another manuscript unrelated to my dissertation. It's now published! I will definitely be using these services again.

I have worked with Donald at Positively Write for many years now. It is no wonder why he is in such a demand as editor; he knows not only how to edit, but also how to communicate with his clients. He keeps his promise, and he is honest and polite. I cannot imagine submitting any written work of great professional import without any help from a great editor like Donald. Are you looking for an editor who thoroughly understands Chicago Manual or MLA styles, who has intelligence to understand what you are writing, diagnose both the strength and weakness in the way you argue in your paper, and help you navigate through that difficult and lonely journey of finishing an academic paper? Donald is the one.

Over the last two years, I've been looking for a reliable and efficient editor to help me with my academic articles, and I think my search finally stopped. Donald makes a great work in every sentence. It is almost impossible to find somewhere else the professionalism, communication, and efficiency provided by Positively Write. I highly recommend it.

Positively Write was immensely helpful in refining my Stanford thesis, and Donald worked with me under a very tight deadline. He was dedicated, communicative, and got the revisions back to me on time. Most importantly for me, the thesis was passed after the first round of editing. I strongly recommend Positively Write to all persons in need of friendly, well-qualified editorial help, and Donald is an honest man to work with.
