I am Not a ghostwriter

Recently, I’ve noticed what seems like scads of online ads posted by people offering to ghostwrite college students’ academic papers. That is so unethical. If students get caught submitting someone else’s work, they will receive a failing grade for the project. In worst case scenarios, they could be expelled from class or kicked out of school.

Of course, there are no consequences for the phantom authors. They collect their fees and continue doing the work the students should be doing.

As an editor, I will work with students who need my help. I can review grammar and punctuation with them. I can make suggestions regarding research sources. I can edit their reports and research papers and offer suggestions for revision.

However, I will not write their papers for them.
