WHEN I FEEL I need to recommend that a writer contact an outside freelance editor, I always think of the editors of 5E.  Their professional experience is unparalleled, their dedication and talents are solid and dependable, and they understand the marketplace.   I feel very comfortable recommending them to a writer who seeks an outside editorial consultant.
— Gail  Hochman, Brandt & Hochman Literary Agents, Inc
WHEN I SEND a client to any of the editors in 5E, I know he or she will be getting not only top-notch editorial feedback and advice, but also truly helpful information on the publishing process itself. There is such a collective level of experience and it is all delivered with a supportive and creative touch.

AT GRUB STREET’S 2014 national literary conference, “The Muse and the Marketplace,” the accomplished and savvy editors of 5E offered a rich and informative discussion of crucial role editors play in the development of a manuscript. Attendees found the 5E Editors’ wisdom and practical advice enormously helpful to their projects, especially in terms of revision. Editors are more important now than ever, and the editors at 5E are among the best in the business.
— Christopher Castellani, Artistic Director, Grub Street
THE EDITORS OF 5E are some of the very best in the business – smart, articulate, with years of experience and a finely honed sense of what works in the marketplace.  Working with any of them will be a life-changing, thought-provoking, editorially exciting experience!
