These guidelines are set to ensure consistency, accuracy, and trustworthiness in our reviewing process. We understand the intricacies involved in writing and recognize the nuances that differentiate various writing aids, platforms, and methodologies.

What We Do

Regulatory Advice

While writing does not come under traditional regulatory bodies, we adhere to guidelines established by literary associations and noted experts:

  • We are aligned with the Modern Language Association (MLA) for formatting and structuring.
  • We reference the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) for ethics and standards.
  • We abide by the Writer’s Digest recommendations for resources and platforms.


Given the vast universe of writing resources:

  • We meticulously review feedback from writers across various platforms.
  • We are active participants in writing communities, gleaning essential insights.
  • We frequently interact with accomplished authors, publishers, and industry leaders to understand the nuances of different writing tools and methodologies.

Example: In our recent review of writing software, we engaged with over 50 seasoned authors to gather their personal experiences and feedback.
