O’Brien Editing Services
OES is a boutique, English-language editing service. Founded in 2021 by writer, editor, and teacher Matthew O’Brien, we specialize in fast, professional editing at an affordable price. We offer a personal experience in an industry that has become faceless and automated, and we’re diverse rather than niche. We edit résumés, cover letters, bios, academic papers, admissions essays, books, websites, social-media posts, news releases, short stories, and more.
OES line-edits (spelling, word choice, sentence structure, etc.) and provides big-picture (developmental) feedback. Along with constructive criticism, we share positive comments. We aim to avoid changing a document entirely and, instead, to make it the best version of itself. We’re also available for free text or audio consultations before and/or after the editing process.
Editor Arthur Plotnik said, “You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what’s burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.” In short, that’s our mission: to infuse your words with clarity and meaning and let the essence shine through.
