AcademicIamA ghostwriter who helps students by writing papers and completing assignments for them AMA!

Mar 15th 2018 by IamDeleuzienne • 12 Questions • 20 Points

My short bio: I've been a full-time ghostwriter for several years. On the one hand, yeah, it's shady. On the other hand, many of my clients are good people in bad situations (illness, anxiety, disability, family crisis). Once, a customer solicited a paper and gave it to a professor to test my services. Apparently he got an A-. When the article was reposted recently on /r/todayilearned, I got a few requests for an AMA, so A away.

Edit: This has been fun, and I appreciate the questions. I'll check back if anyone has anything else to ask. In case anyone is interested, I just wrote a book on researching and writing quickly. It's intended to help students who feel overwhelmed or unsure of themselves. Check it out here!

Q:

Is the meme account brilliant long con marketing or just because you feel like it?

A:

I am not in charge of that. The site admins run it, and I know I'm old because I can only understand about 20% of the memes these days. Back in my day, we'd fax them!


Q:

I never knew I wanted to receive a meme fax until right this very moment, now it's allllllll that I want! :)

A:

have you ever heard a fax tone? Because if you have I assure you that you do not want faxes.


Q:

As a 2nd voice in this (with the same company), I don't think anyone would intentionally get someone a bad grade, as it'd be bad for the student and could lead to few repeat customers, which is bad for us too! The only times this typically happens is if a client forgets to give info or tries to reword the assignment and we work based on the client's word and that ends up being significantly different from the what their instructor actually wanted!

A:

Not knowingly. There are a lot of times in which clients do not provide what I'd consider to be essential information or in which I have no real context, or times when they specifically ask for it to be dumbed down. Since I have no control over what students do with the paper it's hard to say. I think a significant portion edit it somewhat. If something goes wrong, I do what I can to make it right, whether it's editing or suggesting how to go forward with a grade appeal.


Q:

How about the level of the institution? For example, have you ever been asked to write a paper for any Ivy League schools or for Ph.D programs?

A:

I don't know (or want to know, or ask) for any identifying info. I only know what the client tells me, and I never solicit identifying information. Yeah, I have written graduate papers. And grant applications for faculty.


Q:

Is there actually a way to ghostwrite a PhD dissertation without the ghostwriter just grinding out the PhD the hard way?

One does not simply cough up a 250-page tome in a coffeeshop in a few weeks.

A:

You'd be surprised. Especially when it comes to the absurdly low quality permitted in online for-profit grad programs.


Q:

So, no graduate papers for students in institutions where the professors could be reasonably expected to give a fuck?

A:

I have written many course papers. i don't really do longer projects (theses, dissertations) anymore. I don't want much information about the students, so I seldom know where they go to school anyway.


Q:

What’s your educational/professional background?

A:

I have an undergrad degree in English, a master's in English with an emphasis on film, and a PhD in media / /communication (bigger emphasis on media).


Q:

But zero background in ethics?

A:

Given how many ethics papers I write, I would say I actually have a pretty strong background in ethics.


Q:

Lol I think you need to settle down

A:

What makes you think all of the people who use this service are wealthy? Spoiler: They are not.


Q:

How many papers per day you write?

A:

It varies widely, and the length or scope of the project is a big factor. Think 1 horse sized paper vs. 100 duck-sized papers.


Q:

How much time do you have to write the average term paper? Of course this varies based on paper/client requirements (I like the horse v. Duck analogy), but speaking in generalities, what kind of turn around time do you give yourself?

A:

Assuming an average term paper is about 2000 words and involves a persuasive argument based on several sources...it really depends. I could generally turn it around in 24-48 hours. but there are always differences, so I'm not totally comfortable saying that's a hard or fast rule. And if I get the flu or something, it might take longer.


Q:

How do you handle a client who is unsatisfied with the final paper? Are you allowed to renegotiate the price in case the specs change?

A:

That's dependent on the situation. If the scope changes (ex.: Client asks for a 5 page paper, demands revisions until it's over 8 pages) then I can say either I won't do more or I only will if they add funds. If clients have reasonable requests for revision, I'll comply. I'm not saying this happened a few weeks ago or anything, but if someone demands that I change the color of the table in a 1-page assignment, or something otherwise minor and subjective, I'll probably suggest they make those changes on their own.
