Founded in late 2020, the Thinktown Writing team is composed of a group of passionate and experienced writers who are dedicated to sharing their knowledge, expertise, and love for writing with students. Aside from professional writing advisory services that help students prepare for international writing competitions such as the Harvard International Review Academic Writing Competition and the New York Times writing contest series, we also offer highly individualized support for students with more diverse or creative writing interests and plans.
All our academic advisors graduated from top-tier universities and liberal arts colleges with in-depth knowledge of different humanities and social sciences majors, and have extensive experience teaching writing at the college level, either at college writing centers or as private writing tutors. Many have also worked as editors at literary journals and magazines, and are therefore in great positions to offer students insights into the evaluation and editing of drafts.
To date, we have helped 300 students with their writing projects, many of them went on to win prizes and awards in eminent writing competitions. As our work continues, it is our hope that, through our products and services, students can not only learn the ins and outs of writing but also discover themselves and build confidence as writers through the story they want to tell and how they want to tell it. We are therefore dedicated to encouraging students to read extensively, think critically, write consciously, and most importantly, have fun in the process of learning.
