Professional, prompt editing of your essays
Your essay represents a lot of hard work. You’ve poured over the relevant literature, conducted your research, and presented the results as clearly as you can. But is your writing clear enough?
Often, college instructors will assign short essays as weekly assignments in lieu of a major research paper. While essays can be less hassle for a busy college student, they can also be more difficult to write since the page/word count is lower, necessitating brevity, and the prof is more likely to notice even minor errors in a shorter paper.

How does one edit an essay?
Let’s start with the basics: an essay must be grammatically correct and have correct punctuation and spelling. Your editor can correct any problems in these areas, as these are the first errors a grader is likely to notice.
Additionally, your essay should flow smoothly and be logically organized and consistent. If you state in your opening that you intend to discuss points A, B and C, and instead you somehow get off on a tangent and discuss points A, D and G, an editor can point out this inconsistency and suggest ways to correct it.
Similarly, if your essay seems to change between your opening and closing paragraphs, an editor can catch this. If sentences or entire paragraphs need to be rearranged to make more sense, your editor can handle this, as well.
(As an aside here, there is a “formula” for essays that will help keep you on track: in the opening paragraph, tell your reader the points you intend to discuss; over the next several paragraphs, discuss these points; conclude by telling the reader what you told him-again. It’s really that simple.)

What if my essay has a word limit that I’ve exceeded?
Our editors can assist you in reducing your essay to the word limit by eliminating excess verbiage, suggesting or making sentence rewrites, etc. Sometimes that lovely hundred-word anecdote that you just adore doesn’t really advance your thesis and can be eliminated without changing the meaning of your essay (the parenthetical aside above is an example-remove it, and this article flows just as smoothly, without any loss of meaning); or maybe you’ve written very long and convoluted sentences that can be shortened and made easier to read, while also reducing your word count.

“Thank you so much for the editing…it’s a big improvement and learning experience. Humbling too, as I realize I’ve forgotten most of the punctuation rules.”
Thank you. J. Nordstrom
