Lillian Boyd is as deft as she is insightful. She is able to look into the heart of a piece and bring out what will really make it shine.
Lillian Boyd’s editorial insights are brilliant. Her feedback is kind, thorough, and invaluable. She makes everything I write deeper and better, and I cannot possibly recommend her highly enough.
Lillian has been a strong editor since the day we first met. She most recently edited a short story of mine (‘Gender Reveal Box, 16.95’) in the Spring issue of Fireside Magazine, 2021, and her turnaround of edits was quick and she got right to the heart of the story. It’s a weird story, but Lillian got the whole scope and got a better ending out of me. Definitely recommended.
Lillian offered insightful suggestions about both big-picture structural edits and fine-grained prose edits, all of which improved my final draft. She is also funny and kind and great to work with, which are essential qualities in an editor.
On any topic and at any length, Lillian has consistently brought out the best in my work, with a compassionate hand and an eye so sharp the sentences bisect themselves. It’s an absolute joy to work with her and I can’t wait for our next project.
Lillian provided a stellar sensitivity read, with insightful and incisive comments about a central nonbinary character. Working with her was easy and an absolute pleasure.
