writing help for artists
statements, applications, letters, etc.

“A sentence is not emotional a paragraph is.” – Gertrude Stein

I will help you make the sentences and paragraphs of your applications into clear, forceful, economical arguments for your project. You send me your best shot at it, and I will return it to you clean, edited, and ready to submit. Many writers are not comfortable writing, and even many of those who are find it awkward to write on their own behalf. Some artists have an amazing and inspired relationship to language, but a less inspired relationship to straight prose. I will not write your applications for you—they need to be in your voice and animated by your passions. What I will do is take your language and deal with it structurally and grammatically to maximize its persuasive force.
