My statement still feels like something I've written, but it represents me so much more clearly and positively than it did. I can't recommend this service highly enough.

Eleanor Poetry MFA applicant, Melbourne, Australia

Beyond just critiquing the mechanics of my essay, Jackie pushed me to examine and state my objectives more clearly. As someone who knows how an admissions department works, she was able to offer very specific feedback. Jackie also communicated clearly about her timeline and gave her feedback very quickly, which I appreciated very much!

I had almost resigned myself to that merely "decent" statement when I decided to reach out to Jackie. The in-depth feedback and edits I received reinvigorated an application process that can be so daunting and draining.

Shannon Fiction MFA applicant

Jackie's presence has been the single most helpful conversation I have been involved in about my work up to this point. Her feedback was clear, friendly, and spot on every time. I truly wouldn't see my writing the way I do today without her help.
