We have been really content with Veronica's work during the past busy months. Her corrections are always diligent and fast and the communication between us is impeccable.
Magazine editor and writer
Veronica has been an incredibly-valuable member of the Writemeanything team since the company was launched in 2007. Over the years she has consistently proven herself to be creative, hard-working, practical and reliable, while she also has an excellent eye for detail. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
The Sunday Times
Veronica is one of my favourite people to call when I want something written – written to an excellent standard, and written on time of course. I have given Veronica many an arduous (and potentially boring) brief. Yet, she manages to go past the obvious and somehow get the words spring to life on screen. And this, within the parameters of the brief and with barely any editing required. The lady can count me as one of her fans.
I wouldn’t want to be judged by the manner in which I answer e-mails and phone calls. And yet, in a somewhat perverse way, that’s the way I judge writers. Mind you, it’s not me – it’s the editor inside, who has deadlines for deadlines and for whom days go by like the ticking of a clock. And then it’s going, going, gone to print. By that measure, Veronica Stivala is as efficient as they come – she answers e-mails within the minute, even at six in the morning or 11 at night. And she is always on standby for a commission.
But then, efficiency isn’t the sole mark of a good writer: good ideas and content are. As is curiosity. Veronica has plenty of each. Combine that with her efficiency, and you get the reason why I have been commissioning her for close to a decade.

Veronica is a very friendly, supportive and trustworthy person who is highly flexible and worked according tor my needs rather than asking me to opt for one of the options she had laid out. This was extremely helpful as many PhD candidates are not sure as to how our work will develop.
Veronica is very professional in her support. She recognises the challenges students face and was kind enough to work around my financial situation. I will always remember her for understanding my circumstances (at the fag end of my write-up, I had to spend a few grand in order to obtain my family visa). I am moved by her support.
She is extremely kind and swift in her response and approach. I would strongly recommend Veronica not just because she is economical and efficient, but also because she is very professional and friendly. She is flexible and is readily available to communicate with her contacts by email, text or phone call.
Masters graduate, Archaeology
University of Malta
Veronica Stivala was suggested to me by a professor at the University of Malta to proofread my MA thesis at the eleventh hour. Time was of the essence since I had only a month to go before I had to submit. All I can say is that I wish she was suggested to me before, as Veronica succeeded where others failed. She immediately answered my request for her assistance, and proofreading commenced soon after. Within the first few days she had already returned to me an entire chapter fully corrected, and within the month she had finished reading all my work and answered all my queries. Her understanding of the subject of my thesis, archaeology, was also of a high standard. Where the text was not clear she always suggested possible changes, never altering text without asking me. I found that the prices charged reasonable when compared to the excellent service provided. I would suggest her for proofreading for any level in education in any subject.
