What her clients say:
Jesi is a thorough and effective editor who immerses herself deeply in a manuscript until she knows it at least as well as the writer, in some ways better. Her suggestions are pragmatic and creative and she has become much more than my editor, she’s become like a coach — guiding and encouraging me when I feel lost and directionless. I feel so lucky to have found her.
Julie V, Psychologist, Author

She provides guidance and support in the often frustrating rewrite process. I love her passion and her dedication to helping me do my best work. She knows how to nurture my creativity while holding me to a higher standard. Overall, I couldn’t ask for a better ally for my craft, my clarity and my growth as a writer than Jesi Hanley Vega.
