Starmack & Phillips Writers’ Services responds to the needs of students, artists and businesses for high-quality writing. We provide a wide range of editing, consulting, writing and tutoring services, including:
Excellent writing results from careful revisions. Every page must be checked to ensure that your work is clear, consistent, and correct, and to be sure that your ideas are shown in their best light. Starmack & Phillips’ editorial services allow you to compose and submit your documents with confidence.
Checking for basic spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. In order to convey the integrity and professionalism of a client's endeavor, all work should be thoroughly proofread before submission or publication.
A more thorough review of style, usage, organization, and tone. Documents will be returned with specific suggestions for improvement and comments from the editor identifying points where a client’s argument or narrative needs extra attention.
An index helps readers easily access information. Many authors of scholarly or how-to books find that, at the end of an exhaustive writing process, it is extremely useful to have an outside party prepare their index. A fresh pair of eyes can objectively and critically evaluate key terms and create cross-references.
The writing process includes many steps that take place before you even begin a first draft. We will help you brainstorm, outline and organize ideas. Our personalized support allows you to develop and showcase your own unique voice--even if you aren’t quite sure yet what that voice is. We are familiar with a wide variety of writing styles and will make sure that the tone of your piece resonates with its intended audience.
The application essay is a special document. It’s responsible for an extraordinary amount: it must highlight your talents and accomplishments as well as show an admissions committee why you are the perfect fit for a specific program. As graduates of prestigious colleges, we understand how nerve-wracking this process can be. We will explain the difference between a statement of purpose and a personal statement, and we will help you develop a creative strategy for your essays that conveys your commitment, experience, and academic capacity. Our clients have been accepted to top undergraduate and graduate programs in the United States and Europe.
As your first contact with a prospective employer, résumés and cover letters should be impeccable. At Starmack & Phillips, we go beyond formatting and grammar checks to help you rethink your professional history and re-organize your documents. We concentrate on making the most of your work experience so it dovetails with the job description and establishes you as an ideal candidate.
Artists, non-profits, and small businesses are well aware of the importance of fundraising, and we are proud to say that our clients’ projects have received awards from prominent governmental and private organizations. We will help you navigate the many subtle aspects of grant writing, from your first letter of inquiry to your final report and thank-you notes.
Award-winning writers ourselves, we will craft advertising copy, website or social media content, newsletter articles, and press releases. Whether it’s for promotional purposes or for an internal report, we will work closely with you to create a compelling story about your business.
Starmack & Phillips’ coaching services encourage you to build your academic strengths and expand your literary abilities. Our students' many successes prove the merits of our focused tutoring. Our experience ranges from guiding early readers through sounding out their alphabet to leading businesses in team-building exercises centered on memoir writing.
We provide academic support and mentoring for students in grades K-12 and beyond. With several years of teaching experience, we help with homework, projects, and papers, while emphasizing study skills and organization. At the high school and college levels, we have particular expertise in ESL (English as a second language), French, Russian, English literature, and writing. Group discounts may apply.
We prepare you to meet the challenges of the PSAT, SAT, and GRE. Focusing on the proven strategies that enabled us to score in the 98th and 99th percentiles on these tests, we help you get the scores you want on the Math, Verbal and Writing sections.
We offer creative writing classes tailored to the needs of your group. Whether you are looking for a one-day workshop or a several-week series, we make writing accessible through exercises, games and brainstorming techniques. Workshops can be general (e.g. introduction to poetry) or can explore a certain theme (e.g. autobiography, family stories, nature writing). School groups, clubs, and organizations find that a writing workshop can deepen connections among members and provide inspiration--whether you are a beginner or an experienced writer.
We are committed to helping you achieve your writing and editing goals. If you require any services not listed here, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. In the event that we are not able to help you, we will do our best to refer you to someone who can.
