Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $20

I have six years of experience writing, editing and proofreading through my roles as a staff member at literary journals, a writing center tutor, and a university instructor of English.

I have successfully written and edited book reviews, grant proposals, resumes, cover letters, personal statements, fiction, poetry, academic articles, theses, and dissertations.

You can expect completed projects from me to follow proper format, be free from grammar and punctuation errors, and read clearly and naturally.
