"After many years of writing, I think much of the enjoyment came from the feeling of no longer being in this effort by myself. It is so comforting to have someone sharing the wheel on steering these poems to port. "
"I have never used a poetry editor before, so I had no idea what would happen once I decided to send a collection to Isabelle. To me, her approach is detailed and encouraging. Many of the poems benefited from just one or two word changes or deletions. In some cases, she, with fresh eyes, saw room for development and re-writes. All in all, it has been time and money well spent, and I recommend Isabelle highly."

"Isabelle will preserve your original vision and improve the quality of your writing. She's affordable and has a quick turnaround time, which in the publishing industry is invaluable. I would highly recommend Isabelle if you need a prompt and professional editor."
Author of 'Love from the Barricade'
"Her input helped me so much! She inspired me on how to approach my entire online presentation, which is still in the re-making since our chat. She gave me lots of input on how to post, when to post, how to organise my social media pages, what headers to use, how to market myself with everything I am."

"Isabelle Kenyon figured out where I can best place the punctuation. Kenyon picked out where I was missing words or switching between tenses in the poems. She was also able to question the unnecessary words or confusing lines in my poems to help me make the poems stronger. She was able to take care of the little and big things I had missed."
Poet and Editor
"Isabelle was a delight to work with. She opened many doors for marketing my book that I would not have found on my own. Her efforts enhanced awareness of my work and directly led to me being invited to read at a prestigious poetry event in my community."
Poet and Author
"The past months working with Isabelle Kenyon have been an absolute joy. She's given me and my book so much, I look forward to working with her in the future!"
Poet and Author
“Isabelle Kenyon edited my chapbook, “not your Token,” and she was lovely to work with. She was timely with her responses and feedback. She offered advice on the ways that I could possibly take my chapbook to the next level that I was hesitant to try in the beginning due to my own self-doubt of not wanting to “step on people’s toes.” But the overall theme that I was attempting to convey about my identity as an immigrant, a writer, and poet, I needed a push to put a stake in that space for my own self and the story that I wanted to tell.
I was pleased and empowered when she finished the edits, and when I sent the final pieces to my beta readers, their feedback solidified that Kenyon knew exactly where it needed to go and what I needed to do to take it there.”
Poet and Author
When I first contacted Isabelle about editing my manuscript of poetry and flash fiction, her almost immediate reply had such clarity and uplifting enthusiasm that I knew my writing would be in good hands. It took longer for me to feel comfortable sending her the manuscript than it did for Isabelle to edit and return it. Isabelle edits with great clarity and lightness; she shows how technical details work and sometimes suggests possible experimentation in line breaks to make a poem come alive. Most of all, I appreciate her many insightful comments. They have given me insight on how to bring my writing to a deeper level.
