We want to help you 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.

What It's Like to Work With Us:

About Ellen:

I taught middle school English for six years before I quit to pursue my love of language in a different manner. While I was teaching, I worked with advanced thinkers, imaginative creators, emerging speakers, and struggling writers. My favorite thing was to work with the individuals and help them with exactly what they needed. 

When I started editing, I reached back to my college days working in a university writing center, copyediting the school newspaper, and diving into my grammar and linguistics courses. I advanced my editing ability with an Art of Proofreading certification. Now, I combine those skills 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.  

About K:

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. Whether it’s figuring out the right words to effectively convey your thoughts, creating your voice in your writing style, or just polishing a work with proofreading, I’m happy to help. I also enjoy discussing the bigger picture of a project to come up with research plans and ways of connecting ideas in interesting ways.
Teaching undergraduate students has helped me see how rewarding it is working one-on-one with writers who want to grow. And to get the most out of the experience, I always want to know what an individual writer aims to achieve so I can focus on those points specifically. I also know I can keep learning new things by working with other writers, so I’m excited to see what projects you have!
