Anne Rakowiecki (rack-uh-wick-ee)
Me? I’m a DePaul University graduate with an English/Creative Writing BA who hails from St. Louis but loves living in Chicago. I’m skilled at and enthusiastic about proofreading, editing, writing, and I have a very sharp eye for detail. I love grammar. I have a passion for syntax, flow, and generally creating highly readable, professional, polished work.
I’ve interned in the Editorial Department of the Chicago-based hospitality magazine Concierge Preferred, was the acting Editor-in-Chief for the web-based business and informational site Shikenan.com, have had articles, reviews, creative nonfiction, and more published on various websites, and for six years have written theatre and concert reviews for the online Chicago-based Buzz News.
I also offer editing and proofreading services through social media outlets and have received only positive feedback from my clients. Ideally, while I currently work in marketing, I’ve always considered editorial my dream job and would love to move into a career that effectively utilizes my strong proofreading and writing skills (rather than just my super friendly and helpful customer service demeanor) but am also open to freelance projects.
Live in Chicago and want me to review your show? Looking for someone to edit your term paper? Want to get your resumé proofread? Need a small bio written for your band? Dying to commission someone to write an in-depth thinkpiece on how our world would be effected if Hogwarts were real?
