A page is music, and has a voice.
It pauses, whispers, sings, and shouts
—with a cadence
you must hear
and control.
We respect the clarity
of Robert Bringhurst
and the brilliance
of Edward Tufte.

In one session with Greg, he provided me with brilliant insights on how to proceed with the treatment for an animated short film I had presented him. He addressed how the bones of the story could be stronger, provided a wealth of literary and film references, asked specific questions (which, when I answer will build muscle on the plot), and finished with a succinct plan of action detailing how to make this story walk on its own two legs. 

I'm thoroughly pleased with Greg's professionalism, which is underlaid with genuine kindness. If you're serious about getting your work into a publishable form, I highly recommend you work with Greg.

I brought my book WHAT WE’RE UP AGAINST to Greg Correll and Steve Busch of small packages for them to design both the cover and the interior. The results fulfilled my very, very high hopes. Greg and Steve put time and effort into the process well beyond what I had any right to expect. I very much appreciated that they were always on the side of working till we got things as good as we could make them. And I appreciated the collaborative process that got us to an exceptionally fine outcome.

"I hired Greg Correll to edit (and design) my book... As we worked together I learned he has a great ear for clarity of language and clarity that might be different depending on the intended audience. Almost all his proposals were improvements. Sometimes they triggered additional improvements from me...Some of the elements of Greg's design for the text served appropriately to accentuate or de-accentuate the content. For this project his excellence at editing and design went hand in hand. I could hardly be happier about how my book turned out."

Wow, your cover design is quite spectacular and dramatic. Congratulations on capturing your reader's attention so effectively.

Greg Correll has been editing my book manuscript.  That statement doesn’t even come close to the kind of help he is giving me.

Greg has entered my book as a partner.  By taking the time and paying careful  attention, he has come to deep understandings of the story I am trying to tell and how to help me tell it.  His insights and his critical responses are clear and pertinent, and he delivers them with generosity, sensitivity and compassion, such that rather than raising defenses, he inspires confidence.

When Greg is working with me, I feel his deep respect for writers and his love of writing, and I am awed each time by his exceptional intelligence and prodigious talent.  

Without doubt, I am discovering how to improve my book.  But beyond that, I am discovering how to improve my writing.  
I feel privileged to have his help.
