Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $28

I am an experienced and highly efficient writer with 13 years of experience in academic writing and 10 years of experience in grant writing. I hold a PhD in Linguistics, have written a Masters and a PhD thesis, and published several articles in academic journals. During my graduate and postdoctoral career I have managed to secure several highly prestigious federal and provincial grants, having raised over 130,000$ for my own academic research over the course of 6 years.

Having presented my work at more than 3 dozens of academic venues over the years, I also have excellent communication skills. Academic writing is the gateway to other types of writing because it teaches you to present large amounts of information in a concise, clear and coherent way.
