“I have been very pleased with Mary Lib’s writing skills. As a non-native English speaker, at times I struggle with conveying my message succinctly. Mary Lib has completed two writing projects for me and is in the midst of the third one.
She reduced a four-page document to a single page and a seven-page document to two pages while including all essential information. I appreciate the work she has provided, her flexibility in meeting, and her careful attention to detail. Her turnaround time is certainly reasonable. Without hesitation, I would recommend Mary Lib for your writing service needs.”

"Thank you for helping me write my resume. Your help was invaluable; I appreciated your time very much. Because I had special circumstances with my health earlier in my teens, I definitely needed to come up with an “alternative” type of resume. You helped me find a template and develop a format I felt comfortable with. Your communication and followup in helping me stay on track with getting a job were very helpful.
All of these things contributed to me realizing my positive attributes, gaining confidence, and putting myself out there to get a job. Thank you so much!"
"I had an important letter to write to a family member in which I needed to convey my compassion for their situation, but also a boundary that needed to be in place before I could resume a relationship. I had a meeting with Mary Lib and described the hurtful history of this relationship and I wanted the overall feeling of the letter to be kind yet firm. This letter was so sensitive in nature, I didn't trust myself to be objective and I really needed the recipient to "hear" me. Mary Lib constructed a beautiful letter and I felt empowered when mailing it. As it turns out, the receiver did "hear" me and I am very grateful to Mary Lib for contributing to the positive outcome."
Perfectly Penned was a lifesaver when my resume became too overwhelming for me to finish. Living in Tennessee, I had to communicate with Mary Lib through email and text and she was always quick to respond. I definitely recommend Perfectly Penned to polish that resume and create a beautiful cover letter.
Mary Lib was a breath of fresh air as I began working my way through the process of writing my first book, 11 Brown Lane: A Memoir. She walked me through the process of rewriting certain passages and carefully handled all the details of editing the book. Working with Mary Lib was truly a collaborative process. She helped me become aware of my “voice” and employed its power as she edited.
For the first-time or veteran writer, I highly recommend Mary Lib for polishing your projects, books, and writings. Thank you, Mary Lib!
