Service Description

In writing, I am skilled at proofreading, editing, critiquing, fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, article writing, academic essaying as well as more ruminative, free-form essays, and even speech writing.

My main interest and skill is in dealing with creative writing. I am both knowledgeable of and absolutely in love with the humanities in general. I would love to critique, proofread, or edit a piece of your poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. I promise that if you send me something that you've poured your soul into, it will have my complete attention. I mean that truly. It is a matter very close to my heart.


Also, I am, as stated, skilled at essaying, and I, strangely enough, do actually enjoy it. I am happy to proofread, edit, critique or otherwise advise you on your essays. However, I don't "ghostwrite" student essays. That is, if you are a student, I won't do your paper for you; it doesn't sit right with me, but I am glad to help in any other way that I can. After doing freelance work for a while, I've learned that my specialty is editing literary works. That is, work that would hold itself to the standards of high literature. I am skilled at arranging and adding content that would add momentum to the deep issues you would like to communicate.

I can also write speeches (not for classes, however) and articles. I have experience writing articles for local papers, and am particularly well-versed in environmental issues, art, art history (ranging from...
