Smart idea. With MasterClass, students can be taught by the top professional in their respective fields. A bit pricey but I am interested in seeing how far this goes!

When studying the lives of female writers and artists, it is easy to find that a sort of germ plagues them, driving them to madness—as defined by the public. Mary Wollstonecraft, the 18th century English writer, attempted suicide twice (and would have succeeded if no one saved her). After her many assertions about less female reliance on men, she ironically attempted suicide because of her attachment to her husband. However, Wollstonecraft is in no way a weak woman. Her literary works exemplify a strong, sonorous voice that could not have been summoned from a spineless woman. Thus, one has to question, was Wollstonecraft just another victim to the female psyche?

Hemingway is a free, online writing check that I discovered on Tumblr. You copy and paste your writing into the text box, and it will check your spelling, tells you if you have too many adverbs or if your sentences are hard to read, shows you if you're using the passive voice, and gives you an overall grade level for how readable your writing is. I've been using this for my scholarship essays, and it's honestly been helping me out a ton. I highly recommend it, and hope it helps some of you as well.
