I have known Penelope Maclachlan for over three years. She is the best editor and English teacher I have ever met. She has edited more than 10 projects for me to a thoroughly professional standard.

I’ve been working with Penelope for years. She is a great asset to our Literary and Arts e-periodical “Whispering Dialogue”. She is a painstaking editor, always ready to engage in discussions aimed at achieving accuracy and clarity. She is eager to understand other cultures, and adapts her editing to  writers’ intentions, whether dealing with a short story, academic study or a factual article.
