I am a recent college graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing. The job market is tough right now and I'm trying to find ways to make money any way I can. One of the skills that I really got a chance to hone over my college career was proofreading - both of my own work, and of my fellow student's work as well. If you need a proofreader for something you've written, I'm there!
