College Application Essays
Statement of Purpose
Book Proofreading & Editing
From our first meeting to our last Ms. Higgins was constantly trying to get to know me better personally in order to help bring out the best in my college application essays. I worked with her throughout my entire college process and was not rejected from a single school (so far)! I got into my dream school (the University of Michigan) and many others, and a crucial part of those acceptances were my essays C.M. University of Michigan 2027
I was admitted to UPenn, Emory, Boston College, and Northeastern, and several of these schools noted a key part of their decision was the way I expressed myself in my essays. I attribute a large part of my success to Ms. Higgins. She made an emphasis to preserve my distinct “writer’s voice”, pulling the key details of each of my experiences into effective essays that showed different parts of my personality. She is incredibly down to earth and genuine, which makes it so easy to run through ideas with her and get constructive feedback! I will always recommend Ms. Higgins: she is a master at her craft!

I hired Deirdre to edit a book in 2022 and was very glad of it. She is an amazing writer and editor. Her understanding of tone and structure, as well as her impeccably concise wording, come through from the get-go. I highly recommend her for any literary work!

Thanks to Deirdre Higgins, I was able to write several unique narratives for my application essays that reflected perfectly who I am. It was a long process but well worth the time and effort. I am grateful for her encouragement and assistance all through the process!

We worked with Deirdre on a book editing project, which included 30 separate narratives of architects from different countries. She was very professional and patient. She went beyond the simple copy-editing and tried to understand the background of each of the authors in order to do proper editing. Deirdre made suggestions on content to improve the style of the book. I highly recommend her for your next project. Angus L.
