TESTIMONIALS


“Jess is an amazing editor of both prose and poetry/rhyme. Her picture book critiques have taken my books to a whole new level and have helped give me the confidence needed to push-on in this very competitive industry. Her knowledge of rhyme and meter has already helped perfect several of my rhyming picture books. I am always excited when waiting for a critique from Jess as I know her advice and corrections will give me the book I hoped for when first putting pen to paper. Jess is a constant professional, her creativity and her work ethic will give your book the polished feel that keeps readers smiling and brings them back for more. And what’s more, Jess is a truly lovely person to work with.

Thank you so much Jess!”

– Vince Cleghorne Author/Screenwriter


What a relief to find someone like her! Not just a scan of the meter but inventive suggestions and solutions worth their weight in gold! Jess has gone above and beyond with her critique.

– Joy Moore, children’s writer


“I 100% recommend Jess Carroll for all your rhyme and meter needs. Whether for a single rhyme, a few stanzas, or an entire manuscript, Jess works magic! I’m fortunate enough to have had Jess work on (or critique) several of my picture books. I’m pleased to say they are now polished and standing tall. Thanks, Jess, you’re awesome!”

– Candace Spizzirri, picture book author
