We help your writing grow.

From improving your English to polishing your academic and nonfiction writing, we empower writers.

Copyediting or proofreading for dissertations, master’s theses, journal articles, research and reflective essays, and admissions materials. We can help with grammar, clarity, and MLA, APA, or Chicago-style formatting.

Improve your writing skills. Clients use these sessions to talk through their writing process, develop their ideas, or improve their academic English skills in preparation for graduate school.

Feeling stuck writing your dissertation? We’ll walk with you throughout the process. We can help you understand the difficult pieces of the writing process, collect sources and organize your literature review, and respond to your reviewers’ comments. 

Copyediting and proofreading for reports, white pages, educational materials, and documentation for educational agencies and institutions. We work with clients to clean up their drafts, improve readability, or double-check their final products. We specialize in nonfiction materials related to K–12 education.

Ellen Morgan


I started my career as a middle school English teacher. Now, I combine an intense focus on detail with my passion for seeing the writer as a person. I know your work is important to you, and I want to help you make your writing come to life–whether through advancing your academic English abilities, drafting your dissertation, polishing your formatting for your style guide, or checking for inconsistencies in your fiction piece, my focus is on you as the writer.  

K Wyrick


I received my PhD in English in December 2021, the most recent milestone in my lifelong writing journey. I’ve been writing fiction for as long as I can remember, and I began pursuing academic writing when I started my undergraduate studies in English. Writing has always felt like a very personal and meaningful activity to me, and I love helping others express themselves in their own writing. 

Julia Medhurst


I am a lifelong writer and lover of words. I am also a doctoral candidate in Communication and Journalism at Texas A&M University and an MA-holder in Rhetoric from Baylor University. For three wonderful years, I served as a full-time administrator at Texas A&M’s University Writing Center, where I assisted MA and PhD students writing their theses and dissertations. I am thrilled to share my passion for editing and writing with you—I can’t wait to see all you are accomplishing!

Shay Fort


I have been writing stories, poetry, and nonfiction for as long as I can remember. Somewhere in my late teens, I began to see a connection between three of my favorite subjects (music, mathematics, and writing): patterns. My studies at Texas A&M University included advanced grammar in Spanish and linguistics, both of which further extended my understanding of morphology and syntax and lent confidence in my own writing and peer editing. As your editor, in addition to proofreading for typos and grammatical errors, I will be constantly looking for ways to help you improve as a writer, concisely convey your thoughts and research, and keep your audience engaged and interested.
