So you’ve written something. Something important. Maybe it’ll help get you a PhD. Maybe it’ll help get you your next job. Maybe it’ll help your company win an important contract. Maybe you’ll self-publish it and make millions. Or maybe it’s just a simple little story that means something to you and that you really want to tell.

But whatever it is, you want to—need to—make sure it’s written as well as possible. Maybe English isn’t your first language, and you’re worried that you won’t be able to get your ideas across properly. Maybe you’re not confident that you’ve expressed yourself appropriately and professionally. Maybe you’re scared that nobody wants to read about your ideas or your characters—or, worse, that they do but that what you’ve written will drive them off. Or maybe you just want to make sure you didn’t miss that ghastly page-one typo.

Well, that’s what I’m here for! I’m Blazej Szpakowicz, and it will be my pleasure to polish your writing until it shines, and to help you communicate your ideas in the clearest and most powerful language.

I’m an editor and writer with a BSc in Computer Science and a PhD in History. I specialize in academic editing (particularly for writers who don’t speak English as a native language) and in science fiction and fantasy, but I’ve also worked on a wide range of fiction, non-fiction and business writing. Short story? Novel? Position paper? Scientific article? Doctoral dissertation? Whatever you need, I can help!
