WE'RE MORE THAN JUST AN EDITING SERVICE

We know that the magic in your story starts and ends with you. But sharing these stories is not always an easy task. It can be uncomfortably reflective to tell stories about ourselves. And yet, we are asked to do so constantly — in applications and job interviews, groups of old and new friends, even in ten second Snapchat stories. That’s why we’re here to help.

We spend time getting to know you, parsing through your different experiences, and finding an angle that will stick. Sure, we'll edit for grammar and style — we’ll dissect your story’s structure and content too — but ultimately, we want to be part of piecing together your journey. Because, sharing your story is so much bigger than a single application or cover letter. It's you.

 

OUR APPROACH

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Everyone has a great story inside of them. Sometimes, our best ideas just need a little help surfacing. At HY Edits, we believe that the process of finding your story is as important as the writing itself. For us your essay is not just another edit, but a way to connect with you and uncover the most authentic and meaningful arc to your story. After all, who can tell it better than you?

WHAT WE DO

Our stories are evolving. We know that every new chapter adds a layer, but distilling all your lived experiences into one central idea can be daunting. Whether it’s a cover letter, personal statement, or essay, we work with you to pinpoint the essential parts of your journey and create a coherent, concise, and compelling arc. We tell you what works and what doesn’t, and we ask the right questions to help you find the words to best represent your experience.

HOW WE DO IT

We start with you. What are your hopes, aspirations, and fears? What motivates you? What challenges you? We take the time to understand who you are and what makes your story unique. Together, we’ll work to bring your voice and personality into every part of your writing. Even if you don’t think you’re a writer, we’ll help your story shine.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"Yash helped me, on very short notice, discover the key message I was trying to convey in a personal statement. After sending Yash a draft and chatting on the phone with him for about an hour, I was able to hone in on the critical ideas in my essay, link together my disparate thoughts, and ultimately articulate my voice in a genuine way. Yash was an incredible listener and did an amazing job facilitating my thought process to help me discover how to tell my story in a meaningful, authentic way."
