— Barbara Wake Carroll, Professor Emerita, McMaster University

“As editor of many collections and journals I can truthfully say that the editorial and production quality of Emond is the highest I have ever encountered. It was a pleasure to work with their team and even more of a pleasure to see the final results.”

“As the production process of The Bigger Picture moves toward closure, I want to place on record how pleased and impressed I have been to work with Emond. The project was your idea, but both before and after getting me enthusiastic about it, you worked carefully with me to ensure that it was planned in a way that would meet demonstrated academic needs. Then, you stepped back and gave me and my co-authors the space to do our work—you have unfailingly struck the right balance between respect for us as authors and helpful, encouraging but thoughtful engagement in the project. The Emond team provided efficient, flexible, and rigorously careful production services, including meticulous copy-editing and excellent book design. It is a pleasure to work with you.”

— Ivor Shapiro (Ryerson University), editor of The Bigger Picture: Elements of Feature Writing

“The individuals at Emond were extremely helpful at every stage of development, from the initial proposal that I submitted to the launching of the book. The expertise and support that I received during this process cannot be understated. They went out of their way to explain and guide me through the various steps that needed to be accomplished. This was my first book, and I am glad that it was with Emond.”

— Jane Barker (Nipissing University), editor of Women and the Criminal Justice System
