Someone sent me a job request on 9 April with the heading ‘Persuasive writing’, which began as follows:

“Reporters have found that teenagers spend averagely about nine hours a day on the internet.”

This person put their name as Anna but only put ‘alexnader’ for their email, so I can’t contact this person. I would like to edit the 300-word document, but can’t get in touch with you.

Please send me your email address and then I can edit your document and send it back to you.

Many thanks.

  1. Hi there, has anyone responded to this yet? Just being nosey really, but I really don’t understand why someone would go to the length of getting in touch with you and not include their email address. So get in touch whoever you are and give her your email address!!! You can see from all the reviews she’s had that she does a great job, so don’t let this chance to use her services slip by as she’s already said she will do the work!

All you have to do is email me at!
