Some words from my clients,
past and present.
"As an editor, I have worked with Liz and her writing. She is extraordinarily creative, turns in polished work, is always quick to respond to any edits and changes, never late for a deadline, and an overall pleasure to work with. Her upbeat and easygoing personality makes communication pleasurable. I always look forward to reading what she has in store for me next!"
-HOLLY FOX, MANAGING EDITOR FOR RAVISHLY
"I worked with Liz on a Bustle article about how to spend Father's Day when you don't have a father to celebrate. She was quick, responsive, a strong writer, and pleasant to work with."
-JULIE ALVIN, DEPUTY EDITOR FOR BUSTLE
"I had the pleasure of working with Liz on a piece for the Bustle Books vertical that she pitched, titled "3 Ways To Become A Better Writer By Ignoring Your Genre." From start to finish, Liz proved her extreme professionalism, cleverness, and creativity -- her pitch was spot-on for what our readers are looking for, proving she researched and understood the publication; her piece came in quickly and on time; and her work was practically spotless for me as an editor. In addition, her attitude was both professional and positive, which made her incredibly easy to work with."
-CAITLIN WHITE, BOOKS EDITOR AND LEAD BOOKS WRITER FOR BUSTLE
"Not only is Liz's voice authentic and moving, she is a delight to work with: prompt, motivated, and friendly. I am honored to have been able to feature her writing on The UnSlut Project, where it continues to touch diverse readers."
-EMILY LINDIN, FOUNDER OF THE UNSLUT PROJECT
"Liz Lazzara is an insightful writer who doesn't pull any punches and gets right to the heart of her subject matter. Her ability to draw on and share personal experience in a way that shows both her vulnerability and strength is impressive. As a freelance writer, Liz produces work that is professional and highly compelling, leaving the reader wanting more."
-THOMAS G. FIFFER, SENIOR EDITOR, ETHICS, THE GOOD MEN PROJECT
"Liz Lazzara writes with raw, unflinching honesty about mental illness, something she is also an advocate for in equal measure. Lazzara is as strong in voice as she is in character. Something about the way she writes inspires gratitude in the reader -- even when she may be facing insurmountable struggle, she gives so much with each piece. Some of Lazzara's most memorable pieces from The Coffeelicious are some of my favorite on Medium, including "The Mental Illness Drunk Tank" and "Dear Husband Who Is No Longer My Husband.""
-ABBY NORMAN, EDITOR OF THE COFFEELICIOUS
"Liz contributed a guest post to That First Year detailing her first year after college and her struggle with expunging negative relationships in her life in order to allow room for self-respect. Not only was her writing both polished and engaging, but she also met deadlines in a timely manner, possessed a friendly attitude throughout, and continued to support the blog long after her piece was published. I would certainly welcome more from Liz."
- ALLY WILLIS, CO-FOUNDER AND EDITOR OF THAT FIRST YEAR
"Working with Liz is a dream. She is extremely professional, proven through her effective communication and consistently polished prose. She demonstrated an intuitive understanding of our publication and it showed in her writing. Her voice is tenacious, authentic, and gritty -- I couldn't want for anything more as an editor."
- NICOLE BOOZ, FOUNDER AND EDITOR OF GENTWENTY
