"Aaron helped me with my poetry manuscript when it was nearing a finished state, but still needed some streamlining. Instead of applying an off-the-shelf critical drill bit, line by line, Aaron highlighted weaker lines and poems, and reinforced my confidence in stronger poems that didn’t invite tinkering. His suggestions sometimes coincided with intuitions I wasn’t quite brave enough to trust, and at other times presented options I’d never have found myself. In my case, the process restored the balance between wordplay and substance, but Aaron is an editor who can bring out the best of  any style of poetry. He is first an foremost, a flexible and empathetic reader. "

"Aaron Kent is one of the most considerate and intelligent editors I've had the pleasure of working with."

Alice Kinsella / Sexy Fruit

"This has given me lots to think about and I can't wait to start editing my work. I wish I’d used an editorial service like yours years ago! "
