Corinne handled a variety of writing and editing responsibilities as interim associate editor for Ohio Today magazine and also freelanced for the magazine for many years during my time as editor. Her creativity, attention to detail and ability to meet even the tightest of deadlines made her a go-to writer and editor. I hope our professional paths cross again, which is perhaps the highest, most sincere form of praise for a former colleague’s work. I recommend Corinne without hesitation.
Over the years, Corinne has been a consistently reliable and proficient contract proofreader and copyeditor for Ohio University Press. She is a professional writer as well, and has a good eye for detail and a good ear for language. I recommend her services without reservation.
Corinne is a solid reporter and writer who has tackled a wide range of topics—from art to history—for Perspectives magazine with much enthusiasm. She is a pleasure to work with.
Corinne has done an outstanding job reviewing and editing our documents at a very reasonable price. I would not hesitate to us her services.
Corinne has edited some of my academic manuscripts prior to journal submission. She has taken the time to ensure she is familiar with the target journal and has always produced a first-class product. ALL of the articles Corinne has edited for me have been accepted to peer reviewed academic journals!
Corinne Colbert and I have never met, but since she has copyedited two previous novels of mine, and is now working on a recently completed memoir, I am convinced that I know her well.
Well, she’s smart, literary, and Irish, which is all you really need to know, but she’s also fast, funny, finicky and fair, and when she has finished stirring around the ingredients in a story, I feel that my work is finally the best that it can be. That is a powerful feeling for any writer of fiction or non-fiction, since most scribblers need help.
As she explained to me recently, “Writers have an affinity for language which isn’t just mechanics and syntax, the gift lies in using language to convey ideas and experiences. Fiction writers astound me,” and she went on to express her admiration for the wizardry involved in giving life to characters spun entirely from the imagination. “Leave the cleaning to the hired help,” she modestly concluded.
That wizardry comment was cool to hear, but her own alchemy is the finishing touch that turns my efforts into something that glows a little brighter than before. Corinne’s exceptional editing skills allow me to present my work in the most professional way possible—that is her calling and her expertise—and it is something I value. Corinne is the best. Underlined. Period. And let’s add an exclamation point, too!
Corinne worked for me as a contract writer and editor on our Internal Comms team for 6 months and proved herself to be a top-shelf professional. She works fast, she works efficiently, she writes with impact, she manages multiple, complex projects with grace and ease, and she sees the bigger picture to provide comprehensive communications solutions. Individuals or organizations looking to solve challenging communications problems would do very well to look to Corinne for ability to not just deliver and to exceed expectations, but to add real value as well.
Corinne not only has a keen eye as an editor, she has basic business common sense. I especially appreciated her ability to edit while understanding the need for strong marketing language. She is also very realistic about the timelines needed for her work—crucial for project management.
Corinne provided very high research and support to Horizon during several high-visibility, critical grant requests/bids.
Corinne is very professional across the board. She is good at managing a project from start to finish and keeping not only herself but others on task. She is thorough from concept to completion and has a high standard for delivering a quality product. I found her very easy to work with. She is a very talented writer with very strong research skills. I would hire her again.
