Carolyn Martinez, Hawkeye Publishing Director

Proofreader, 2021

“Poppy recently proofread a fiction manuscript for us and I was impressed with her knowledge. I was immediately confident I could trust her work because of the level of detail she applied, and the higher level grammatical mistakes that she identified. I recommend Poppy as a fiction line editor and proofreader."
Alice Woodland,

Editor & Assistant, 2021-
"Poppy is a rare, glistening gem. Somehow possessing the tenacious hustle of youth alongside the calm wisdom of experience, she helped me sculpt my manuscript into something I could be proud to share with the world. As a virtual assistant, Poppy was caring and patient every step of the way. As an editor, she was thorough and methodical – her critical approach tempered by an immense passion for character and craft. I am so glad I found Poppy, and look forward to working with her in the future."​​

Newsletter Editor, 2018-19

“Poppy was a great help; she took her role with great seriousness and helped us shape the Newsletter. She created a standard guideline, style guide, and a monthly timeline which was circulated to those on the committee… she adhered to the timeline, and the monthly newsletter was available on time at the end of each month. She contributed well, worked well and diligently with virtually no supervision. Readers and residents in the Sunshine Coast Community of all ages praised the changes she made to the Newsletter."
