"Working with Allegra on a draft of my manuscript was immense. The feedback she gave me was pointed, sincere and, most of all, useful. She had a good eye for pointing out things that I didn't immediately see in my work, and I felt like she gave me the room to consider these new approaches and ideas — as well as ways that I could improve the work — without being prescriptive about it. I enjoyed the process." -Koye O.

"Thanks to Allegra’s incisive questions and suggestions, I was able to identify missing threads in my stories, take the subplots to deeper levels, and stretch my writing practice. Thoughtful and thorough, Allegra will challenge you with knowledgeable guidance." -Amy S.

"Allegra Hyde is not only a consummate prose stylist, but a generous teacher and hard-working editor, too. I found her critiques thorough and enlightening. She has a great eye for detail, pinpointing weaknesses, offering timely advise, enabling all aspects of my prose to leap forward on the road to publication." -Michael M.

"The feedback I received was both constructive and encouraging. During the revision stages, I found myself wrapped up in my characters’ world – I became more committed to telling their story as true as I possibly can." - Kalani P.
