"I recently wrote a grant proposal for the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition THRIVE Powerhouse Grant, supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation. The week before I submitted the proposal, I was looking for a skilled and experienced editor available on short notice. I found that person in Amy J. Barry. Her skills include an eye for detail, in-depth knowledge of style and structure. And she met my deadline. Amy added to the flow of the text while acting as a copy editor and proofreader. She was instrumental in my being awarded the grant! Working with her is a joy."
