I'm seeking an editor for a graduate school application personal statement. A loose draft has been written and needs tightening up and polishing. The draft is currently 2,300 words and needs to be expertly cut in half.

Requirements:
* You know Strunk & White like the back of your hand
* You know how to take expository, academic-sounding writing and make it more creative and lively
* You love the polishing stage of editing and are great at it

Please get in touch and when you do, point me towards a portfolio that I can review.

If we end up being a great match, there is a possibility for ongoing work. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
