Hello! I am an editor, looking for some writing to work with! I was wondering if you would be so kind to let let your members know that I am available to edit their work! I charge $1 per page (market price is $2.50) and I read all kinds of work! Thank you for your help!

":bulletred: No limit to the amount of deviations you can submit!"

But we're limited to 3 a day. I think you should change that in the rules to say there is a 3 deviation per day limit because that's the whole reason why I joined because there was supposedly no limit. :hmm:

I am promoting my writing, so if some people have some spare time, I would love if they could read some and tell me their opinion.
