Hülya N. Yılmaz, Ph.D.

Director of Editing

Mission Statement

As the Director of Editing Services my vision is to not disturb the authentic voice of the writer / poet but to aim towards a level of excellence that delivers a product which will be fulfilling and rewarding to a global readership.

~ * ~

As a “Professional Writer”, there are times when an unfulfilled obligation is not being addressed in honor of our readers and fans. Many times, as writers we may believe our inspiration, thoughts and messages conveyed through our writing are enough . . . not so. Clarity and fluidity are an integral part of how we and our written offerings are perceived and finally evaluated as meaningful. It is essential to not only have a good story, but to also be clear in our language usage and story development.
