Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $11

A lover of language, I've been an avid reader and writer since I could walk! Born a triplet, I saw literature as an escape from two antagonizing brothers - who, thankfully, no longer enjoy pulling my hair! I am highly creative, even earning a Creativity in English award during my college years, and I'm always up for the challenge of new works!

Service Description

I offer creative writing services in any number of areas, as I am capable of adapting to new and different projects. I am an extremely fast learner and excellent researcher, so if I don't know something yet, you'll bet I'll know it by tomorrow!

I also offer proofreading and editing service for academic, business, and personal documents. Throughout college I revised the academic essays and seminars of my fellow students, and afterwards edited business material (professional letters, manuals) for my father's veterinary practice and as Assistant Director at Huntington Learning Center.

I provide well-developed, engaging, and professional written pieces on a variety of topics, both fiction and non-fiction. My talents earned my the Philip and Azalea Myers Award in college, and a place in Lambda Iota Tau.
