Policies, Background, & Misc.
July 2020 annc: It has come to my attention recently that some unscrupulous competitors claim to have a writer named "Deleuzienne." This site, UnemployedProfessors.COM, is the only site I write for and anyone using my username is violating a trademark. Be careful out there on the web!
I've completed over 7,700
projects for this site. I must be doing something right!
Areas of special interest: Anthropology, sociology, technology, computers, English, linguistics, media, philosophy, political science, psychology, art, history, gender studies, culture studies, business, pedagogy / teaching, ethnography, CSR, ethics, religion.
I can help with Vellum readings, language classes, and more.
I am also pretty good with math(s). If you have a project you think I can take on, invite me and I'll check it out!
Press (includes a writing sample
My bidding minimum
(double-spaced, standard margins + font), $45/ page (1.5 spacing), and $60/page single spacing. Sometimes I bid more than this minimum because of turnaround, the cost of materials such as books or journal articles, the complexity of a project, how much work I already have and so on. Please don't ask me to bid less than my minimum. Remember that this site, bank fees, and taxes each take an enormous cut, and I am netting FAR less than that per-page cost. Thank you for understanding.
As of 3/1/22, my minimum prices will be $35 per double-spaced page, $53 per 1.5-spaced page, and $70 per single-spaced page. Unfortunately, inflation has left me with no other options.
A few tips for successful collaboration:
1. Word count is far better than page count, every time! Try to get a ballpark estimate from your professor.
2. Although more info is usually better, there is a point where an overwhelming amount of info can cut into precious time, especially on very tight deadlines! Think about what info I really need to write. I can't always read an entire semester of assigned readings in a day. Also keep in mind there is a limit on how many files you upload with your project. It can be very time consuming to download dozens or hundreds of .jpg, .pdf, and .png files, especially if they are out-of-order pages. The less time I have to spend on admin stuff like that, the more time I have for writing.
3. An ideal deadline is about 24-36 business hours away from when you must hand it in. This will give you time to look over it, revise if necessary, ensure that you have the file, etc. I realize this is not always possible, but it is ideal: and if your deadline is more flexible, you can usually save some money this way since my bid will be lower!
4. Unfortunately I can't provide ongoing status updates.
I read most messages as quickly as I see them, but I can't always respond immediately. Thanks for understanding!&nbs
