Research Writer Interview With Constance
To-The-Point And Meaningful Writer
Hi Constance, we’d like to ask you a few questions about your background and specialization.
Sure, it’s my pleasure to answer them.
Could you tell us a little about your background as a writer?
Well, I have BAs in English and Anthropology, and an MA in Middle Eastern/North African Studies, so you can see that my interests vary. Ever since I was 10, I’ve been an avid reader of classical and foreign literature—anything from Poe and Shelley to Kafka and Paolo Coelho. I published my first short story when I was 16, and take writing very seriously. But I’ve also traveled widely, and my knowledge as a researcher is not limited to just books. This is why I took to anthropology- it’s about generating new, original, thoughtful ideas.
What do you feel makes your work for Custom Essays unique?
I am intent on generating original research with an authoritative voice on a subject, and sometimes using only primary sources. As a graduate student, I was very proud to produce a research paper using only French-language resources from the turn of the century. It took some time to find these books, but the professor was exceptionally pleased with my work. Primary resources are especially vital for dissertations, so I can give clients an extra “edge” to their paper by producing original ideas. I’m a thinker, not only a writer, and I enjoy creating a unique and thoughtful piece of research for students in need of it.
What are your areas of specialization?
My greatest wealth of knowledge lies in comparative literature, anthropology, and creative writing. I am currently an applied anthropologist in market research, meaning that I can analyze consumer behavior using anthropological concepts, as for business and marketing students. Multicultural marketing is an increasingly important business strategy these days. This type of writing is heavily based on converting quantitative information into qualitative interpretations that the average reader can understand. This is a task I’m able to do for other fields as well.
Since my studies were multi-disciplinary, I can also offer my services in world history, political science, sociology, and any related subjects. Because of my graduate degree, I am most enthusiastic to offer research on the Middle East region. However, I hope to learn as much from these projects as the students do. I would be happy to address other regions in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas.
Besides academic writing, what other types of writing do you do?
I am also an online journalist and a translator. I’ve written articles on international music, and have translated several articles from French and Arabic into English. I also have a running knowledge of Spanish, and hope to gain a proficiency in this language soon enough to use it for research purposes. Also, I recently completed my first novel, and I hope to publish it within the next year.
How would you describe your writing style?
Although my academic writing style varies from my creative writing style, I try to be lucid and concise at all times. I’ve found that some students and academics have a tendency to “fluff up” their writing with big words and run-on sentences, but this is not a good habit. The best academic writers are easy to understand while displaying a thorough knowledge of the vocabulary and concepts essential to their fields. I consider my writing, both nonfiction and fiction, as to-the-point yet meaningful.
Thank you, Constance. Is there anything you’d like to add?
I’m looking forward to working with clients through Custom Essays and providing them one-of-a-kind, first-class papers.
