"Vesna is a wonderful blend of the analytical mind you want in an editor and someone who cares about your work as much as you do. Technical when she needs to be but also able to stay calm and weather the emotional waves that a writing project can take on. When she said I could reach out for her support even AFTER she submitted her final edit and I took her up on it, that's when I knew she was really dedicated to her craft. If you're considering the full thorough deal with her, just go for it! She'll make sure to keep going and raise the bar even if you're wavering. She's a top notch editor, cheerleader, truth teller, and finisher. She helped me complete a much, much better book. I am so grateful."

" Words cannot express how grateful I am that Vesna approached me to edit the 2nd edition of my book. She was a God send. Vesna's understanding of language, and her incredible ability to use words to transform an ordinary book into a great one, is impeccable. I would recommend Uptown Words to anyone who is writing a book. Vesna is not only a genius at transforming books, she cares! She takes pride in her work and genuinely wants your book to be the best it can possibly be. Her interest in you as a person, as an author, and in your message is evident by the care she takes in your product, but also in the way she listens to you and the message you would like to convey.
There are editors and there are editors. I have experienced both, and I can tell you that Vesna is one of the best in the business."

"To utilise Vesna in the final stages of my executive master thesis was really a great decision. Having written and re-read my own work multiple times, her ability to review, critique and refine my words was invaluable. I have ended with a final document that is sharper and more succinct while still feels and reads in my own tone and style of writing. Vesna brought a nice balance of quality editing, honest critique and pragmatism to the process, as well as a greatly appreciated flexibility for fitting in our busy schedules and hitting milestones through the journey. Her energy and commitment has been a big part of enabling a truly higher quality thesis to be delivered."

"Vesna was my book's lifesaver! Just at a time when I was about to give up on the entire thing, I was introduced to Vesna. She not only made all the precise and accurate grammatical corrections, but also gave me great content and structure ideas to improve my book! I am now so excited to share my book with the world and owe this in large part to Vesna and her creative genius!"

“I hired Vesna to rewrite the copy for my business website this year. Vesna took the time to deeply understand the message l was trying to convey. I was impressed by her iterative, flexible process and delighted with the final outcome. Her approachability, professionalism, and capability gave me plenty of confidence in my website project. I would highly recommend her to anybody looking for a copywriter to fine tune their message and guarantee they are talking to their desired audience.”

"Vesna is a wizard with words. It’s like she waves her magic wand and brings the written word to life. I've worked with Vesna on multiple projects for my business and for my clients, and I've been blown away every single time. She’s an impressive writer who produces exceptional work. I adore her dedication to understanding the gig before she gets going. She prods and probes and gets to the heart of what you need. No confusion, no mucking around, just pure focus on making sure she delivers and delights. And she does… every single time.
Whether it's translating complex technical concepts into every day human speak, capturing the essence of someone’s voice on a website, making a ‘bio’ sound inviting, or putting ideas into a brochure so they make sense, she nails it. I don’t know what I did before I met her.
She’s one clever human who combines her intellect and professionalism with being flexible and creative. I can't imagine putting words on any page without her help.
If you need words, you need Vesna!"
