Awesome Team

  • Leah Levy

    Founder & Head Writing Consultant

    Hi, I’m Leah. I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. I write for businesses of all sizes, and help individuals find their creative voices.

    Here are a few stats, for those who like that sort of thing.

    I have

    1. A dual BA in Brain & Cognitive Sciences and Creative Writing from the University of Rochester
    2. A Masters of Fine Arts in Fiction Writing from the University of Washington
    3. Run my own successful businesses tutoring and coaching students of all ages for a number of years.
    4. A number of fiction publications under my belt and hundreds of marketing and small business blogs published. (Yes, literally, hundreds, I don’t understand how it go that high either).

    What I do

    1. Write blogs, in-depth articles, ads and web copy for solopreneurs, small businesses and major corporations such as Microsoft, Macy's, and SimpliSafe. (I’ll even write them for your wedding website, if you so desire, with plenty of flare).
    2. Help applicants apply to private high schools, university, and graduate school find their voice and tell their story so that they can get into their top programs.
    3. Help students of all ages (yep, from elementary school on up to octogenarian grad students) write the best essays and creative stories, novels and play that they can. Want more?

    All of my life I’ve had to deal with two people living inside my body. No, not in a freaky, alien kind of way. In a left brain vs. right brain sort of way.

Who Loves Us

Leah helped me write my admissions essay for graduate school (Master's in Mental Health Counseling) and her contribution and the end result of working with her far surpassed my expectations. She didn't just help me choose the right words, but she really helped me find my voice in the process of composing this essay and create a very powerful and personal piece of writing that showcased my unique point of view and the strengths I would bring to the graduate program. Working with Leah was a great experience and anyone needing help with their writing could benefit greatly from her services.

Mary Lawson, Graduate School Applicant,

Leah is an incredible resource! She is responsive, helpful and articulate in her advice. I reached out to her for help with editing a business paper I’d written; she worked quickly and offered valuable suggestions for improvement. Given her strong skill set, experience with copy editing, literature and command of the English language – I will continue look to her again and again for help.

Anonymous, Business Student in Need of Paper Help,

Leah is a fantastic coach! I needed help with a paper, and she was very patient with me. She gave me great constructive feedback and brainstormed ideas with me. I have no doubt that I would not have received a high grade without her. I will never turn in another paper without asking her to proof it first!
