Frequently Asked Questions
We can help us assess your individual needs as a writer. If you send us an email with a sample of your work, we would be happy to direct you to the appropriate services.
The time for services varies based on the current demand and the length and nature of the writing. When possible, please request our services at least two weeks in advance. Last-minute requests are possible for an additional fee. Please see our rates.
If you need application materials to submit within a couple of days, please fill out the intake form, and we will respond as soon as we can. We will evaluate if we are able to expedite the work on a case-by-case basis (see above).
We will work with you to find an appropriate forum for online coaching. This may involve communication through comments in a shared document, or it could involve video conferencing through Skype or Google Hangouts. For packages, we provide in-document comments as well as a conversation over video conference, phone, or email.
Yes. We offer payment through Transferwise specifically because it offers good, transparent exchange rates for clients outside of the United States.
We accept a variety of payment types for your convenience, including PayPal, credit cards (through PayPal), Venmo, and Transferwise. For in-person coaching, we also accept cash. We do not accept personal checks.
For the writing coaching sessions, we welcome writers at any stage of a project. We are happy to talk through your ideas with you, work with you to revise a rough draft, or help you hone a near-final draft. Our goal is to coach you to produce the best product possible, but also to discover your best writing practice. Our line-editing, copy-editing, and package services are for writers who have a written draft they want to improve.
In that case, you have three options. (1) You can set up coaching sessions to work on your essay, beginning by brainstorming the content with a writing coach. (2) You can set up one coaching session to brainstorm and then use the package to help revise your first draft into a final draft. (3) You can write a first draft, even if your ideas are messy and disorganized, and then use the package to turn that into a working draft.
