Dear Dr. Harpy:
I'm writing to you in your capacity as a faculty member of the Dept. of Ego and Bullshit.; I'd like to introduce myself to you and briefly describe the services I offer to graduate students.
First, I'm a writing coach: Although most of my clients are ABD, my methods work equally well for anyone who has difficulty writing productively and/or meeting deadlines. My techniques, background, and rates are outlined at www.Idon'tknowshit.com.
Second, I'm an editor, and especially enjoy working with faculty and students who are ESL; my approach and qualifications are described at www.IhaveadegreefromWalmart.com. I offer a 30% discount for enrolled students, as well as a lower rate for APA/MLA formatting.
Finally, a recent article I wrote on how to edit yourself might be of interest to your students; it's at www.ohgoddon'treadthis.com
I'd be grateful if you'd pass this along to anyone who might benefit from working with a coach or editor.
Thanks and best wishes,
