Happy Independence Day from Editors for Students

On July 4th, 1845, Henry David Thoreau settled into a small cabin he built for himself on Walden Pond, where he lived for two years, two weeks, and two days recording the sights and sounds of the pond in Concord. Though Thoreau himself claimed that his choice to move to Walden on Independence Day had no metaphorical significance, his Henry David Thoreau and Editors For Students
act stands as a reminder of the meaning of independence. We all, in some areas of our lives, search out our own private Waldens: Places where, communing with our better natures, we find the work--and the play--that comes so naturally it doesn't seem like work at all.

in 2002, Editors For Students was founded in the spirit of Thoreau, who sought to integrate his personal and work life as an independent contractor in various trades for his neighbors. It was a gesture of independence meant to allow excellent editors across the U.S. the opportunity to work from home helping students to clarify their best ideas. On this Independence Day, we'd like to wish the best to you and yours and hope that we have, in our small way, helped you to fulfill your goal of finding your personal Walden Pond, that place where your work, individual interests, and contentment are one.

We've recently made some significant updates to our website, but we're still the same company under the same ownership since our founding. Whether you're new to our service and here on purpose or just visiting this page on a web browsing excursion, we hope you'll look around our site.
