From our clients

Working with Ideas on Fire was an oasis, an opportunity to receive affirming, consistent, and constructive feedback on my writing from a knowledgable but impartial source.”

Ronak Kapadia

author of Insurgent Aesthetics: Security and the Queer Life of the Forever War

“Working with Ideas on Fire was an incredible experience. I have new expectations for copyeditors and indexers now, thanks to their work. I recommend IoF to all the academics and writers I know.”

Tiffany Lethabo King

author of The Black Shoals: Offshore Formations of Black and Native Studies

It’s clear that IoF is especially skilled at working with interdisciplinary scholars. They were able to engage my book with an attentiveness to and care for the methods, sources, and theories I use.”

Marisol LeBrón

author of Policing Life and Death: Race, Violence, and Resistance in Puerto Rico

“I recommend Ideas on Fire’s services to anyone, from recent PhD grads and early academics to veteran scholars. The opportunity to have a fresh set of eyes on a project—particularly if those eyes are well-versed in academic culture and theory—is a gift.”

Nora Draper

author of The Identity Trade: Selling Privacy and Reputation Online
