About Me

I am an independent scholar, freelance editor, and writing consultant. I hold a PhD in comparative literature from Northwestern University, where I focused on working class journalism during the British Industrial Revolution. I am also a country blues aficionado and avid amateur guitarist.

I have worked with clients on many types of writing projects, including academic conference presentations, doctoral dissertations, book chapters, and college admissions essays. I am an experienced grant writer and have written successful grants worth approximately $250,000. Email me at ben-at-benschacht.com.
