“Miranda Hersey takes my ideas, works her magic on them, and turns them into beautifully written, well-articulated thoughts. I'm not sure how I ever got by without her.”
—Susan Retik, Executive Director, Beyond the 11th

“As anyone who has met Miranda can attest, she’s an engaging, creative, and thoughtful professional. We were in search of a professional writer and editor who could take our complex story and our complex organization and reinterpret the way we talk about ourselves for a broader audience. Miranda hit the mark. I needed someone who could deliver magic without overtaxing our limited staff resources. I needed someone who could understand our needs while bringing their experience to the table. Simply put, we didn’t want someone who would say ‘yes’ and deliver something we didn’t want. Miranda was all that and I’m happy to recommend her to others.”
—Jim Hopper, Executive Director, Bainbridge Community Foundation

“You provided us with outstanding service for our new website. The editing and guidance we received was excellent and the turnaround time was fantastic. We will definitely use your services again and enthusiastically endorse you to others!”
—Paula K. Rauch, MD, Director, PACT Program, Mass General Hospital

“Miranda has been wonderful to work with. She has helped us to more effectively utilize our organization’s annual report as a vehicle for donor engagement. At the outset of her first project with us, Miranda took the time to visit our headquarters and learn about our mission from the inside, and her understanding of and appreciation for that lifesaving work is reflected in her writing. Her work with us has included everything from conducting interviews and writing complete profiles and compelling stories, to expertly editing copy written by others within the organization. Her skill and attention to detail ensures that the various pieces are in the same voice and that the quality is excellent.”

—Tom Hudner, Chief Development Officer, Boston MedFlight

She will give you an honest assessment of the scope of work, collaborate with you on the solution, and then deliver superior results on time, as promised. Always.”

—Rebecca Lindy Coll, Executive Director, Wondermore

“We would not be able to accomplish the vast needs of our organization without the creative support team, spread throughout the US, of which Miranda is a part and has been for many years. This past spring I depended heavily on Miranda to keep us organized and on point rebranding a program within our organization. The website, social media, and supporting documents all transition smoothly thanks to her oversight. We met all of our targets on time and without flaws. She not only ensured the team worked cohesively but also met all of her deliverables on time and as requested. Her thoughtful edits to raw material are made with the writer’s voice and preferences in mind. In this fast-paced business, that intuition is priceless! Miranda is a master at juggling a number of projects at one time in various mediums all with a professional eye to excellence. I would be lost without her expertise and support.”
—Michelle Hagerty, Marketing Manager, East Boston Neighborhood Health Center

“Pen & Press did an outstanding job for us. Given an almost impossible deadline, they exceeded our expectations on every project deliverable, providing us with an incredible website that explains our complex solution in an easy-to-understand manner that is engaging from start to finish. I would highly recommend their services to any organization.”
—Gary Gang, Director of Sales and Marketing, Human Resource Management Center

“As a scientist who regularly writes for both technical and broader, audience-based journals, I wouldn’t think of submitting a paper for publication without first having Miranda at Pen & Press edit the document. Miranda has caught errors that would have been embarrassing, and once things are out in the literature, the mistakes remain forever. When I submit a manuscript, I am confident that it is in the best possible shape. Her knowledge of technical editing is unparalleled, and I cannot overstate her importance in my publications.”

—Professor Jennifer Rivers Cole, Director, Environmental Studies Program, Northeastern University

“Miranda Hersey helped establish the standard operating procedures for TPR Media and the basic plan for our publication, The Parent Review, our quarterly newsletter with a circulation of 100K. She is an excellent editor and writer, and works efficiently and effectively.”

—Betsy Weaver, EdD, Founder/President, TPR Media

Miranda’s a joy to work with, extremely skilled and effective, and has the right support people at her fingertips.”

—Karen Pryor, President, Karen Pryor Clickertraining

“Miranda has worked for me in numerous capacities over nearly a decade, making invaluable contributions to my publishing company. She’s a very astute editor, with a sharp eye that never fails to root out enemy errors.”

—Roland Pease, Publisher, Zoland Books

“Shortly after I embarked on my first attempt at writing a book, I was introduced to Miranda at Pen & Press and very quickly learned that researching and writing is of little importance without the expertise and guidance of a professional to edit, rewrite, proofread, and take over the process of producing a result I could be proud of. Miranda did all of this and much more. I will be indebted to her forever.”

—Richard Rodi, Author of A History of the Rhode Island Philharmonic

“Improper pronouns, disagreeable verbs, and nonsensical nouns—Miranda is a sharpshooter who will take you out!”

—Kia Ricchi, Author of Avoiding the Con in Construction

Miranda has a concise, clear way of presenting the challenge at hand, organizing the work team and effectively ensuring that things are done on time. I recommend her highly.”

—Pamela Pattavina, Director of Business Development, Neighborhood PACE
