“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” ~ Albert Einstein

Not everybody can be great at everything. That doesn’t mean you’re not clever. It just means you’re interests lie elsewhere. In the same vein, not everyone can be a great writer. The worlds of academia and business can be challenging places if you’re not skilled at writing. In fact, most institutions place a lot of emphasis on the ability to communicate well in writing, penalizing anyone who isn’t a skilled writer.
If writing just isn’t your thing, does that mean you’re doomed to fail in your job or at school? Absolutely not. We offer a host of writing services to help you level the playing field, so you can focus on the things you are good at.

Our Story

Maybe you’ve heard the quote: “Everyone who has ever taken a shower has had an idea. It’s the person who gets out of the shower, dries off, and does something about it who makes a difference.” This is pretty much exactly how Authority Writing Services began. I’m not going to waste your time writing a generic version of how our company was founded, like most companies out there. Instead, I’d rather spend this time giving you a personal account of how I discovered a need that had to be filled, which lead me to start this endeavour.
From an early age, I was blessed with a racing mind and a wild imagination. I spent most of my time coming up with ideas about anime and video games to even thinking about how I could make money off my Pokémon cards. This meant that I was often sent to the principal’s office, either because I had a hard time focusing on my schoolwork or didn’t listen to the teachers when they chose to treat all the other kids like infants. You know, giving them candy for good behaviour or rewarding them with a sticker if they took a nap. I would always let my friends copy off my homework if they needed help, and I was always willing to lend a hand to anyone who needed it!
Before I knew it, I was in middle school and I had managed to collect all the rarest cards in Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Digimon as well as $1,800 in savings. I started my own miniature shop during recess and sold my shiny cards for $10-20 dollars a pop. Going into my last year in middle school, I remember the fear the teachers instilled in us about the challenges of high school. I spent most of my high-school days playing sports, working, and playing video games. When most people were busy planning for university, I was planning raid times for World of Warcraft.
Grade 12 came around and that is when it really hit me that I needed to focus on my grades and get into university to uphold the family name. I went from a 63% average in my junior year to 91% in my senior year. I applied to the most prestigious universities in the country and got accepted with a full scholarship to all of them. What I was able to take away then, was that the education system never truly prepares you for what is to come.
This was my experience when moving from middle school to high school, and it sure was the case going from secondary school to post-secondary. Teachers focused too much on the theoretical aspect of education, without any time given to the practical side of things. University was quite similar, maybe even worse. This is why many students end up dropping out or pursuing degrees that leave them with considerable debt and no actual tools to succeed in the real world.
It’s often the case that professors lack knowledge, social skills, and patience. They’re good at what they do in their discipline, but they are not very sociable. This meant that students who are already academically gifted can succeed, while students who require more assistance and time continue to struggle. I spent the majority of my time at university teaching myself all the subjects on my own. You might say that I was fortunate to be able to do that, but this shouldn’t be the norm.
Here is the truth: universities are multi-billion-dollar businesses that only care about growing their customer base by admitting more and more students. Like your phone service provider, they offer you a service that you pay for. If you don’t like that service, then your decision to cancel (or leave) doesn’t harm their business model, and they don’t care what happens to you afterwards.
Studies show that only 27% of college graduates have a job related to their major. This leaves an astounding number of people entering fields that have absolutely no relation to their education. The only benefit of having a degree is to prove that you could get a degree. But having a bachelor’s degree will probably only get you an entry-level job that pays $15 an hour – and you could get that same job directly from high school, without the expensive degree!
So, I ask you: If you are paying tens of thousands of dollars in tuition, but have professors that cannot speak well, cannot help you grasp the knowledge needed to succeed, and offer you no way of improving, then why are they so strict on ethics, when they are the ones supporting the worst ethical breach since the foundation of the education system?
Ultimately, the reason universities pay such close attention to SAT scores and high school grades is to determine which students they can invest in and potentially exploit in order to advance their own business prospects. If you’re an A+ student in high school, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll be an A+ student at university – past performance is an indicator of future performance. The university has a commitment to enrolling as many high-performing students as possible, this brings them more acclaim and prestige, which in turn brings in more high-performing students. Think about it: What impact would it make if Elon Musk attended your university?
These days, more and more classes use essay writing to test a student’s grasp of theory and ability to articulate their thoughts, with the grade then being seen as an indicator of success, both in that class and throughout their degree. No consideration is given to whether English is a student’s first language, or if their academic strengths and intelligence can be tested through other means.
Ultimately, this truth was clear as day for me when I was in university, and it has only become clearer now that I have graduated. Why are we required to abide by such hypocritical guidelines, and then must listen to these same organizations promote academic honesty? Their motto is: ‘Be a good student and you will be fine or be a struggling student and we can’t do anything to help you.’
Therefore, I and a few others started this little company. We want to help people write better – everything from their resumes to their enrollment letters, academic papers, thesis papers and eventually more mainstream projects like blogs, journals, websites, and presentations, which span across many academic and professional disciplines.
When I am challenged by people who question my ethical standards, I urge them to really examine the academic injustice that millions have endured. While it’s true that I make a living from writing papers, I will never agree that a student’s welfare should be based upon the competency of their language skills. Until the education system is torn down and rebuilt on the practical end of the spectrum, services like mine will always be in demand. I see my line of work as a noble cause, and this is why I call myself the Robin Hood of essay writing.
We make this belief a reality by putting clients first, leading with exceptional ideas, doing the right thing, and giving back.
