Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I am a writer who has written for newspaper, radio, magazine and online news outlets. I also have a PhD, and I am an expert in academic writing (ie. dissertations, personal statements etc). Not many people have the experience as a writer, an editor, and an academic. But, I do! I am fast and I charge a flat rate, so you know exactly what you are going to pay before the work starts. I charge based on the number of pages and the deadline. My prices also include additional rounds of edits. Having experience in both academia and writing can make a big difference. I am not a part of a business that just churns out edits that are not personalized. I have a ton of experience to back up what I do. This makes for a better product for you! I want to help people tell their story, and become better writers. I love to edit and I have more experience than most writing academic papers, personal statements, and feature articles. I know how to do it successfully.

I was very concerned about meeting my deadlines for my dissertation. Caitlin worked with me to proof chapters as I got them approved which helped me improve my writing as I progressed. My dissertation was accepted without any APA issues. Thank you!

Dr. Looby is a phenomenal editor! She is punctual and so very knowledgeable regarding document structure. I love the way she provided editorial notes and suggestions while also valuing my style of writing. If you are writing a book, an article or anything you’re planning to share with the world, I highly recommend Dr. Looby. She is a jewel to work with. She has an amazing way of polishing your work while also keeping the integrity of what you’re trying to convey!

She did a great job of ripping my book to shreds without any compunction. Her side notes aided my thoughts on what others would think or understand about messages I was trying to convey. I have not finished my work and will send more edits to Dr. Looby to reap the benefits of her discerning eyes.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I am willing to negotiate, and work with customers. I want customers to walk away wanting to work with me again!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I am a firm believer in communication and professionalism. This is something that is very important when it comes to writing and education. I like to start new relationships off with a conversation about the customers goals, and I want them to feel comfortable communicating with me throughout the process.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Writing experience: I write freelance articles for magazines and online news websites, including Mongabay, Pacific Standard Magazine, Canoe and Kayak Magazine, and SUP Magazine. My work has also appeared in The New York Times Sunday Review Section. I wrote scripts broadcasted on air for a radio program on Southern California Public Radio for a year. I also served as the managing editor. I also have a lot of experience writing academic applications and federal grants that were successfully funded.
