Artist residencies, yoga teaching scholarships, micro-loans, fellowships. Opportunities like these all have one thing in common: They often require a personal statement.

Not every grant proposal or fellowship application requires the same thing. Some may want a brief biography, others may want a complex summary of your life so far. Many proposals are more of an argument, where you must paint the picture of why you are the perfect fit for this opportunity. Let my narrative expertise help you represent yourself in a polished, professional way. If you are not confident in your writing skills to get your story across, or you just want an outside opinion to review what you've written before you send it off, I can provide that key guidance before you send in your application.
