Beth Duddy

Copy Editor

“In addition to being a valuable resource to our HR team, I really just enjoy working with Beth. She is incredibly professional, timely and responsive. She asks a lot of questions and works diligently to understand our organization’s policies and more importantly, our specific culture. Equipped with clear insight into who we are as an organization, she has been able to consult on our writing in a way that allows us to express clear, accurate information while preserving our company’s own voice. She is a pleasure to work with, and I have experienced personal growth working alongside of someone as knowledgeable as Beth.”

Stephen Hawkes, Senior Director of Human Resources, Creative Work Systems, Westbrook, Maine

“During my career as a Consulting Principal with Towers Perrin in Philadelphia, PA, it was my great honor and joy to have Beth Duddy work for me for many years as a communications expert. Beth is an extraordinarily gifted writer, editor and proofreader. She can help you with all stages of writing from planning, composition and editing through finalization. As an added bonus, her sense of humor and quirky perspective make her a delight to work with. Fortunate, indeed, are those who get to collaborate with Beth.”

Deborah Jane Wells, Board-Certified Empowerment Coach, Author and Reiki Master Teacher,

“Beth helped our organization assemble a complex application to become certified continuing education providers. She devoted considerable attention to the many requirements of the application, making sure we focused on what they were asking and were concise in our response. She took time to learn about our organization and the services we offer so that she could assist with content development where it was needed. She edited our content for grammar and flow, and helped organize it in a practical and effective way. Beth was very easy to work with, her timelines kept workflow consistent, and her guidance was thoughtful as well as educational.”

Nikki Oteyza, Nadeau Land Surveys, Portland, Maine

“Beth is a natural-born copy editor and proofreader. She has the highest standards for clarity, accuracy and organization of thought, as well as a keen eye for errors; her spelling, grammar and punctuation are impeccable even in casual correspondence. She is curious, engaged and diligent, both in work and in life, and is a friendly and kind person. I would recommend her without hesitation for any project requiring stellar writing, editing and/or proofing skills.”

Greta Boesel, Chief Administrative Officer, UC San Francisco

“Over almost two years of contracting with Beth for copyediting of internationally published educational materials, she has proven capable, diligent, and timely in her work. Beth never misses a deadline and communicates effectively, providing status updates and querying immediately whenever issues arise. Beth has effectively implemented lengthy style guides across complex sets of materials, cross-referencing files where necessary, and completing multi-faceted edit trackers. The best part of working with Beth, though, is her patience and kindness. I rarely get to meet contractors in person, let alone sit down with them for a cup of tea. Beth is a pleasure, and I highly recommend her as a copy editor and all-around nice person!”


Jake Murray, CEO. Creative Content Creators LLC

“Beth Duddy has been a wonderful resource for our business. As a producer of alcoholic beverages, our labels have to go through state and sometimes even federal review, which makes changes costly and time-consuming. It is imperative that we have no issues or mistakes before they are submitted for review. We send all of our copy and our press proofs through Beth. Her attention to detail is outstanding, but her capacity to ensure our brand maintains a strong and consistent voice is what makes her invaluable. Her corrections do not simply avoid typographic and grammatical mistakes. She helps us grow as writers by offering clear advice on our structuring in a simple and straightforward manner. Foulmouthed Brewing highly recommends Beth Duddy for any instance where there is no room for error.”


Craig Dilger, Owner, Foulmouthed Brewing, South Portland, Maine

“I wholeheartedly recommend Beth’s copy editing services. She skillfully cleaned up the grammar and punctuation in my full-length novel, sharpened sentence structure, noted discrepancies, and pointed out issues with pacing and flow. Beth’s edits remained true to the voice of my narrator and authentic to the time and setting of my story. Beth is a strong communicator and collaborator. Her work is highly professional, efficient, and reasonably priced. I feel confident that my novel is polished and ready for submission.”


Julie Daly, Novelist, West Chester, PA

"Beth Duddy is a gem. She is an excellent copy editor and writer, appreciates consistency and conciseness, and embraces clarity. She reviews my proposals for new clients and position descriptions. We just finished a position description for a large client, and we got it right the first time based upon client feedback. She is responsive and has incredible attention to detail. She is easy to work with, and we have fun along the way that enriches the partnership."
