    I'm a PhD student in English at Yale with two starred first-class degrees in English from the University of Cambridge (BA & MPhil) and a degree in creative writing from the Helen Zell Writers' Program at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (MFA), where I won a Hopwood. Clients whose applications I've edited have been accepted into top business schools (Yale, NYU, Columbia, etc.), PhD programs (Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Penn, the University of Chicago, Boston University, the University of Michigan, etc.), law schools and technical schools. I can edit both undergraduate and graduate applications, cover letters, statements of purpose, etc. I'm also a longtime editor of poetry and can edit book manuscripts (fiction, nonfiction, and poetry) and other portfolios of creative work: I was a senior editor in poetry at THE ADROIT JOURNAL for nearly ten years and currently serve as an assistant editor for THE YALE REVIEW. My own poetry has appeared in POETRY MAGAZINE, NARRATIVE MAGAZINE, BEST NEW POETS, COPPER NICKEL, THE IOWA REVIEW, THE KENYON REVIEW, PASSAGES NORTH, PLEIADES, THE RUMPUS, TRIQUARTERLY, WEST BRANCH, and elsewhere. If you'd like to invite me to, or invite me to interview for, a job, please message me as I won't always see the notification otherwise.

    Hello! I'm Chelsea, an academic writer and health researcher with over 10 years of experience in writing, editing, health communications, and academic research. My work has been published in academic journals including the American Journal of Health Education and the American Journal of Emergency Medicine. I am a graduate of Yale University (Master of Public Health) and NYU (Bachelor of Arts), and am proficient in French (DELF B1) and Spanish (DELE B1). I am a lover of languages and particularly enjoy collaborating with non-Native English speakers to prepare college applications, dissertations, and academic journal articles for submission and publication. Precision, personality, and tone are of utmost importance to me as I guide clients through the writing process. I employ a strategic mix of these three elements in my work to generate polished final products with impeccable grammar, spelling, and syntax. I edit using Microsoft Word Track Changes and the Google Drive Suggestion tool and am familiar with MLA, APA, and Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) reference guidelines. In my early professional life I also spent many years working in the music and tourism industries, including writing and editing artist biographies, press releases, scripts, and copy. This diversity of experience enables me to understand and improve clarity with writing for wide array of disciplines, including writing for business, entertainment, and politics. If you are seeking a writer or editor for a non-academic project, please do not hesitate to get in touch. On a final note, I have a special interest in health behavior change, social science, wellness, and travel, and particularly enjoy writing and editing work on these topics! I look forward to connecting and hearing more about your project's needs. Warmly, Chelsea

    My most imperative piece of copywriting advice? One word: adaptability. I've been writing creatively my entire life, pouring myself into stories. Over the years, I learned to channel this ability into practical use: content writing (including blogs, articles, newsletters, website and social media copy), technical writing, copy editing, proofreading, beta reading, book editing, ghost writing— I'm thrilled by the prospect of exhibiting my exemplary writing and editing skills in any way I can. Combined with my thorough and astute methods of research, I pride myself in lending my written voice to a wealth of different topics, ranging from self help, to art history, woodworking and artisan crafts, to film and media critique, internet technology services, various software, and much more. With 5 years' experience as a Technical Writer at Yale University and with current standing as a Digital Editor at Taunton Press, I have dozens of published works, and even more citations exhibiting excellent editing, proofreading, and even ghost writing services. As I work mainly with web content, I am naturally inclined toward SEO optimization to achieve the widest scope of engagement possible. Additionally, I helped launch Superfroot Magazine, an independent literary arts journal where I've served as Poetry Editor and Contributing Graphic Designer for the past 2 years. I lead in choosing magazine submissions based on literary merit, voice, skill, and subject matter; proofreading and editing as needed. My own personal creative works find their homes in various online journals as well. I believe writing provides an avenue to reach each other beyond spoken word. It's premeditated, curated. In this way, I merge a background in art with a literary mind, creating and fine-tuning something truly unique for you and your audience. My truest passion is derived from creative writing, watching others' stories come alive; but I find a distinct satisfaction in translating the complex and technical into something more palatable for everyone.

    I'm an editor, writer, teacher, and researcher at Yale University, who can bring a perspective from inside the Ivy League to your student's college application. I specialize in working with middle and upper middle class applicants to competitive institutions, and I've worked with dozens of students to demystify the work of elite universities. When you hire me to work with your student, you get a distinct approach. In my capacity as a PhD candidate and writing instructor at Yale University, I teach the applicants Yale has already admitted how to craft compelling written arguments. This means I'm not a full-time college consultant. Instead, I intimately understand how successful students write. When I work with college applicants, I combine persuasive argumentation with personal narrativization, helping students to come to life on the page. My students produce unique essays that reflect who they are as people and allow admissions officers to envision who they will become as creative and successful undergraduate students. A bit about me: I hold an B.A. from Princeton University in Classics and an M.A. from Williams in Art History, and I am currently pursuing a PhD at Yale in Art History. My writing has won numerous national awards, and appearing in numerous academic and public facing publications. I am proficient in French, Italian, German, Latin, and Ancient Greek. In addition to editing, I also offer strategic admissions consultation and interview training. I enjoy working closely with individual applications from start to finish, and I'm happy to discuss a personalized approach for your student's application process! Although I'm new to Upwork, I have a decade of experience working with students on applications to elite colleges and universities, including: - Brown University - Stanford University - Amherst College - Georgetown University - New York University - Duke University - Williams College - Vanderbilt University
