From an academic manuscript to a paper for a class, from a feature essay to a blog post, I can help you clarify, refine, and make your writing shine.

I will work with you on all stages of the writing process, including:

  • Conceptual development
  • Organization and structure
  • Logical coherence and clarity
  • Rhetorical and persuasive force
  • Tone and audience consideration 
  • Language style and flow
  • Grammar, spelling, and sentence structure
  • Conventions of style and format (MLA and Chicago Manual)

Dr. LaSusa has taught me what it means to be versatile in my writing...She was extremely patient with me and very perceptive in being able to help identify and build up my strengths....What truly matters is how you adapt and evolve all of your skills in a way that would help you create a unique and wonderful analytical piece, and Danielle LaSusa has helped me to do just that.
