Writing Editing Service (up to 3,000 words) - Editing, Blog Editing, Paper Editing, Business Editing, Second Language, Proofreading, SEO


No matter what you're writing, if you want to make a good impression, you should have perfectly proofread and polished prose.

I can help.

I'm a PhD candidate in English (Composition & Rhetoric) who specializes in writing, ghost writing, and the teaching of writing.

For almost a decade, I've been teaching college writing and have been published both in scholarly journals and a number of online publications. Find some of my qualifications here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/PhDPress/about/

I know writing.

Whether you're working on a blog post, website copy, a paper for school, a class paper, a professional email, your Etsy shop description, an Etsy listing, or anything else that involves English language writing, I can help with proofreading and editing your writing.

From obscure citation styles or works cited pages and second language writing help to SEO-friendly prose, I can help you ensure that you're putting your best foot forward with error-free writing with style and flow.



Because I'm a PhD student in composition and rhetoric, I subscribe to the philosophy that all truly great writing is the result of a rigorous process and meaningful collaboration; in this case, with you--the person who will ultimately use the products we produce together. From your assignment prompt or professional goals, I will help ensure that your writing meets your needs.

1. Purchase this listing. I'll be in touch within 24 hours (though usually much sooner) asking for the writing you'd like me to work on as well as any additional information that would be useful for me to have to place that writing in its proper context.

2. Within 3-5 business days, I'll have a first draft for you to review.

3. Once you're completely happy with the finished product, you will receive your perfectly polished prose in the format of your choice: a high-quality PDF, a Microsoft Word document, an Apple Pages document, or (as long as I can swing it) another format that would work best for you.

Please contact me with any questions!

Maggie was an absolute pleasure to work with. Very easy to communicate with, intelligent and helpful! I LOVE my resume and HIGHLY recommend Miss Maggie! I also feel that her prices are VERY reasonable for the work she puts into these! Thanks so much, Maggie :-)

I am so thankful I found Maggie! Her professionalism, creativity and response time is great! I would highly recommend her for your resume and cover letter. Thank you so much!

Maggie was a dream to work with. She made a huge effort to get to know me so she could accurately and uniquely describe my work experience. She was so flexible and designed my resume and cover letter so it looked 100% professional but reflected my personality. I would recommend Maggie to anyone whether you need your first resume drafted or you're a seasoned professional looking to stand out in the crowd. Thanks Maggie!

Maggie was incredibly helpful with so many creative ideas and thoughts on where to take this project. I was incredibly appreciative of her excitement about the project itself and her insightful input. I did not expect to find anyone who could accomplish my goal of combining literally years worth of portfolio work into one clean, consistent and creative presentation. Thank you so much Maggie, I LOVE my new resume and portfolio!

Amazing! Not only did Maggie complete my resume in record time, she made it look fantastic. This is by far the best my resume has ever looked! Thank you Maggie!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I download my purchase?

After purchasing a digital file, you should see a "View your files" link which goes to the Downloads page. Here, you can download all the files associated with your order.

Etsy will also send you a download notification email separate from any transaction notification emails you receive from Etsy and/or PayPal.

Or, to access your digital file(s), go to You > Purchases and reviews and look for the order. To the right of the order, click Download Files. This goes to the Downloads page for all the files attached to your order.

Check out this Etsy help article for more information: https://www.etsy.com/help/article/3949

I opened the file and the formatting doesn't look right. Help!

Almost without fail, when this problem is encountered it's because the fonts haven't been properly installed.

To install a font, either right click on the font file and choose "install" or double-click on the file.

But--super important--you not only have to close out of the document, you need to completely restart word.

Most of the time, you should be able to just close the program by clicking the Word icon at the bottom of the screen and choosing "Quit" or "Close Program."

If this doesn't work (but it almost always does), shoot me an email and I'll figure it out for you!

If I had to install the fonts, would my potential employer have to install the fonts as well?

You should (almost) always submit resumes as PDFs. Not only do PDFs preserve your fonts regardless of the recipient's operating system, it also preserves your formatting which--whether or not you're using custom fonts--is crucial for submitting a clean, organized resume.

How do I print in Word so that there's no white space around the edges (full bleed)?

With any Microsoft Word template, to print a hard copy or print to PDF (if you've got color around the edges of your document), you'll need to:

1. Go to File > Page Setup
2. Click on "Paper Size" and choose "Manage Custom Sizes"
3. Set the paper size to be the correct size for you (US Letter is 8.5 in x 11 in)
4. Set the Non-Printable Area to 0 on all sides (top, right, bottom, left)
5. Select an appropriate printer. For PDF, select "any printer."
6. Go to File > Print and either select "Print" or "PDF" and then "Save as PDF"

*If your printer won't allow you to select custom sizes, your printer may not be able to print to the edge. In this case, you'll want to use a PDF version of your resume or head to Kinkos--or email me for help!

How do I change the color of a box or put my own photo in a box?

To change the color of a box, double click on it and choose "solid fill." Then select your desired color! To change the image in a box, double click on it and choose "image fill." Then import your picture :)

How do I change the color of the social media icons?

To change the color of the social media icons I include with template, import the icon into Microsoft Word, resize it to your liking, and then choose the "Picture Format" menu (top left) or double-click on the image.

Then choose "Color" (top right) and select the color you want. If none of the colors displayed are to your liking, choose "More Variations" and then choose a color from the palette.
