“Rarely have I worked with a writer who has Sandra’s skill for compressing complex ideas into clear, vivid sentences, which are as enjoyable to read as they are informative. Lively, sharp writing is a lost art in the 21st Century, but luckily there remain a handful of writers who combine natural ability, excellent training and uncanny intuition. Sandra belongs in that group. She also happens to be a joy to work with.”

~ Peter Stevenson, former Executive Editor, The New York Observer

“I came to Sandra after a previous expensive and failed attempt to work with an editor in a state of distress after a long and arduous struggle with a final thesis. Her presence and support was all that I could have asked for, highly skilled, methodical and clear, encouraging, and her edits were always submitted as promised, always right on schedule. She was wonderfully artful in her collaborative tone, never intrusive or assuming, always respectful (and accurate) with her insights and suggestions. Another great aspect of working with Sandra was that she has a lovely sense of humor! Her fees were entirely reasonable,particularly for the high level of professionalism and grace she offered.”

~ Holly Hanes, Hospital Chaplain

Sandra did an excellent job editing my manuscript. I found her editorial approach to be very thoughtful and precise using constructive criticism at its best. She carefully reviewed my manuscript taking time to not only edit but assist me in reconstructing various ideas and concepts to better suit the overall work. I would highly recommend Sandra to assist anyone in their writing projects.

 

- Katalin Koda, Author

“Sandra’s manuscript evaluation was exactly the type of input I was seeking for my memoir. She gave me concrete direction with which I can work to better my writing.  The evaluation provided a lot more feedback than I expected.”

-Debbie Hampton, The Best Brain Possible

“I have worked with Sandra for more than a year on a series of columns promoting the social services programs of our union. It involves Sandra going back and forth between me (the editor) and the chief of the social services program. Her copy is invariably clean and accomplishes the goal of that program.”

~ Lance Howland, former Editor, New York Teacher (Newspaper), New York State United Teachers

Sandra Pawula offers a rare capacity to approach new material with “beginner’s mind,” that is, freshness and openness to its many possibilities.  Her clients can look forward to achieving their goals with originality and distinctiveness.

~ Joanna Bull, Founder, Gilda’s Club Worldwide

“I was so excited by the first case study Sandra wrote for CleverSpin.  Her writing is right on target!  Since then, Sandra has completed a wide variety of successful assignments for our business and nonprofit clients, and for our company as well.  Sandra brings savvy and intelligence to every piece. She is someone you can rely on to produce outstanding communications.”

~ Kris Havens, Former Principal, CleverSpin, currently Communications Director, The American Federation of Teachers
