Our goal is to help writers of all stripes find their voices and develop creative work.

For creative writers, we offer manuscript critique and professional editing. We aim to identify the heart of a piece and help bring it center stage while refining and developing necessary elements such as dialogue, character, plot, and setting.

For students, we strive to help shape college essays that showcase not only academic accomplishments, but those qualities that make them unique young adults. We believe that essays are an opportunity to emphasize the individual behind the grades and test scores – the person with curiosities, quirks, hopes, and his or her distinctive way of looking at the world.
