Essays/Nonfiction Critique


40 per hour - Virtual OK - Posted Jun 16, 2016

I will help you brainstorm ideas for academic papers, essays, and other non-fiction work. If you've already written it, but aren't happy with it, I'll work with you to fix it up. If your instructors are ripping you a new one every time you turn something in, I'll look over your past work and help you identify bad habits, mistakes, and areas for improvement. If you lack confidence in your writing ability, I'll help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and if you take my advice, I promise that you will improve.

Training & Qualifications

I've been slaying English classes since 1990. I've written top-graded academic essays for almost every discipline - even STEM classes. I've won two collegiate level awards for nonfiction writing, and I've read David Foster Wallace - seriously, what do you guys want? I've got ONE gift and it's this. I can't put on makeup, I can't change a tire, I dance like a dying giraffe, but I can write essays in my freaking sleep.

Availability & Preferences

In the semester, I'm likely to be very selective and pressed for time, but over the summer I am free for at least a bit every day.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Lori is an absolute compendium of Lord of the Rings knowledge! During my annual watching of the LoTR movies, a few questions stumped me and Lori them and then some! Her answer was concise, comprehensive, and well written. I can tell she has a lot of love for the more

Lori is a wonderful, deep well of nerdy knowledge (in the best way possible) and she made my entire day answering my Lord of the Rings question.

Lori was quick to respond and very knowledgeable about Tolkien's universe. She definitely knew far more than anyone else I've ever talked with about i...t. I would certainly recommend asking her any unresolved questions you might have!show more

Lord of the Rings questions?
I love new things, and I love being able to do what I do. It's nice to be valued, and it's nice to come to value others. I also never quite understood why bartering fell out of favor in the first p...

About Lori Arend

I'm in college at the age of 39, sitting next to a bunch of 20-year-olds every day. Rather than finding it exhausting, I find it exhilarating. I never quite grew out of naive, youthful idealism, so th...e kids and I have a lot in common. I'm very dedicated to writing, probably more so than is good for my future career prospects, but I'm also a staunch believer in riding things till the wheels fall off, so here we are. I will critique your writing FOR THE GODS. I do it for fun in my spare time sometimes, that's how much I enjoy whipping essays into shape. I'm a dog person. That was a non-sequitur, but I really love dogs. I used to work as a trainer for a rescue, so if you need dog advice, I got you, more
