Hemingway App

Have you found yourself needing someone to read over a document for you such as a cover letter or paper? When your friends are too busy and you aren’t able to meet with Courtney or me, try out Hemingway (http://www.hemingwayapp.com/) This site grades the readability of your writing, alerting you to unnecessary use of adverbs, use of the passive voice, and overly complex sentence phrasing. While it is still always recommended to find a second set of eyes (from a fellow human), this site is helpful as a first step in editing.
