Lin Gibson Editorial Services
Lin is a great editor and proofreader and down right hard worker. We worked together on a big catalogue and she was great to work with. Very clean with her corrections and really open to any way of working that will allow efficiency and productivity.Very aware of typographic rules and really tries to grasp the thoughts behind the text; she goes over and beyond the call of duty. If it's art related, well she is just simply the shit. If not, well she can do anything.

Lin Gibson, the editor of this book, has been critical and constructive in clarifying this text to make it accessible to a wide audience not only in the editorial process but also content-wise: her background and knowledge of pedagogy was extremely helpful. The patience and rigour by which she helped formulate and organize the contents of this book were invaluable.

I’ve worked with Lin on two publications at Gallery 44 and can attest to her attention to detail, commitment, and expertise. She is really great to work with and offers a deep level of insight and knowledge.

We wrapped up on time and well within deadline. Considering the odds, I am quite proud of myself. And frankly, it would not have happened without you—you were my team!—and I learned a tremendous amount.
Once again, I thank you. Hiring you was the smartest thing I did.

I have consulted Lin for her expertise and insight in the writing and editing of reports, guidelines, and evaluations several times. I have found her editing invaluable and her professionalism impeccable. In social and mental health services, discretion and confidentially are crucial; I have always relied on Lin’s sensitivity to those concerns. Additionally, she has a wicked sense of humour and is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her.

I have worked with Lin on a number of writing projects, both big and small, and her editorial suggestions—both substantive and nit-picky—have been helpful, precise and highly intelligent. She has enriched the texts I’ve written and has been a pleasure to work with. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

English is my second language. Lin helped me correct grammar mistakes and improper expressions in my article; make the ideas clear, concise and informative. She has a great sense of clarity and lucid writing style. Her working process is well managed, very efficient and it is easy to work with her. Her editing is an art of mastery and dexterity, and I am so grateful for her help.

Lin, what a breath of fresh air! You’ve done a marvelous job. You've given me much to think on. Your critique puts me at rest (if only all critiques did so), knowing I’m in good hands. Meanwhile, the questions/worries I had about the book now have unexpected solutions.
