“Bernard is a careful, supportive editor. They gently reminded me of basic things (like being specific) while also showing me more sophisticated uses of the structure I was working in, thereby improving the overall aesthetic experience of my piece, including opening the door to more humor.”
“Having worked with them in both capacities, I am impressed with Bernard as a writer and as an editor. Their prose has a unique sense of style, strong narrative, and insistent voice, and their editorial eye is keenly focused on helping others showcase craft and storytelling in their work. You’ll enjoy working with them!”
“Bernard is an insightful and generous reader. They provide the kind of feedback that inspires better writing, and their edits have improved more than one of my stories.”
