Turnaround Times

Please use the above chart to estimate your turnaround time. We cannot start writing until the order has been placed and sufficient information has been provided via our input forms. We may have questions for you if something isn’t clear, which could cause delays.

Our Guarantees

We know that it can take time to get your style down. That’s why we will revise your content for free up to two times within 14 days of your order being delivered. Once your order is either manually approved by you, or auto-approved in our system, free revisions will not be permitted.

Revisions are limited to the information originally provided on your input form. If the need for a revision is due to a lack of information or misinformation provided by the client, we are unable to revise for free.

Please allow at least 48 hours for each revision.

Paid Revisions
If a revision is requested outside of our 14-day window, or is due to new information being added, a minimum of 15% revision fee must be paid before we start work.

Clients are not permitted at any time to obtain a writer’s personal contact information, including, but not limited to personal email exchanges, full name, etc. The only exception to this is with direct client-to-writer interviews, with the policy that clients may not directly contact writers without Express Writers’ permission.

Julia McCoy

Julia McCoy

CEO

A scrappy, self-motivated entrepreneur with an endurance forged in the fires of life, I’m a cult escapee, mom, wife, writer, business builder, content marketer, and reluctant speaker. (Narrative non-fiction memoir hitting bookstores soon!) I’ve always had an inner passion for writing, hand-in-hand with an unquenchable desire to take on challenges that have earned me multiple labels in life synonymous to “crazy.” Before 16, I’d written a 200-page novel and started three local businesses, one of which had me earning $40/hour. The founding point for Express Writers came when I was 19 years old, in early 2011. I’d just dropped out of one of the toughest R.N. programs in the country to follow my dreams and make a living “writing.” Within three months, Express Writers was born, out of an initial pocket investment of $75 and hundreds of hours of hard work. Today, I lead Express Writers’ HR, marketing, am the author of two books, host a podcast, and teach two courses. I’m also the creator behind The Content Hacker.

Josh McCoy

CTO

My background is in project development, Internet Marketing, and SEO. I met & married Julia (the CEO of Express Writers) in 2012 after hiring her to write my content. I have a passion for designing, branding, and building businesses. My current role includes overseeing our entire website development at Express Writers, including our custom-built teamroom and client site. I’m hard at work on leading a development team in building our new site, which will launch in 2019.

Korilynn V.

Content Manager

I have been writing professionally for over 12 years now, but my passion for the written (should I say typed?) word started back in my elementary school days. I have always advertised myself as an advocate for words with my slogan, “putting words to good use 365 days a year,” working as a driving force in my career. Currently, I reside in Utah with my three munchkins and husband. I am obsessed with adult coloring books and possess a palate that only recognizes coffee flavors. Over the years I have worked as a professional writer here at Express Writers tackling everything content related, a content manager for a major review site, and owner/operator of a copywriting firm. In my behind-the-scenes management role here at Express Writers, I look forward to matching up our clients with the perfect writers, overseeing our support team and deadlines, and celebrating as our clients enjoy the victory of brand recognition through great content.

Social Media Specialist

If you’ve ever joined our Twitter chat, #ContentWritingChat, there’s a good chance you’ve interacted with me. As a Social Media Specialist for Express Writers, I’ve been managing the chat since early 2016. (Psst! It’s the first Tuesday of every month at 10 AM Central Time, so come join the fun!) And being able to connect with so many incredible people in our community is truly rewarding. I have my Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies and it’s safe to say I’m as passionate about online content as everyone else on this amazing team. I’ve been blogging since 2009, so I love writing whether it’s blog posts or the social media posts you read from Express Writers. You can usually find me at my desk creating content when I’m not out and about enjoying life in Maryland.

Jillian’s passion for writing started at a young age, writing short stories titled ‘Three Hairy Cupcakes’ and ‘Where Did My Blanket Go?” for her f
amily to enjoy. Following her talent, Jillian graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Anthropology, while writing and managing her college’s newspaper. After graduation, she perused a successful career in marketing for international manufacturers, with the goal to grow brands worldwide and drive business goals. By consistently writing blog articles, press releases, white papers and more, Jillian has been able to continue following her passion for creativity and writing. When she’s not writing and editing for our clients, you can usually find her enjoying a glass of red wine and hanging out with her dog, Monty.

Danielle N.

Content Specialist

I discovered that I can write during my college years writing reaction papers. And from that day, I haven’t stopped writing to the point it became what I do for a living! Now in Express Writers, I’m more in charge of editing and making sure all the content we deliver meets clients’ requirements. Besides that, I also help those who are interested in our content strategy and SEO writing courses and connect with the most awesome content marketers out there to create those meaty Write Blog roundup posts. When I’m not working, I travel to new places or simply go for long walks to get away from my laptop. I’m studying French, too, where I often try my best not to overdo my writing homework – but, I just can’t help it.
