    First I'll say that grading essays is fairly arbitrary. I once

    There's an old saying that goes 'one man's treasure is another
    man's junk' and that applies to essays too. Some people think
    Hemingway is an amazing writer and I don't. I dislike
    Hemingway though I admire his sentence structure and his
    ability to hold us spellbound with his sentences but I HATE
    the way he treats women in his works. There is simple no
    agreement as to what is good writing and there are so many
    different ways to analyze a piece of literature and so many
    different ways in which to write.

    All that said, if you want to send your essay - preferably not
    as an attachment but right in the body of an e-mail, you could
    send it to this e-mail - srmtthws@aol.com - and I'd try to
    read it for you and give an opinion.

    I think that's an active e-mail address though it's an old one
    I don't use it often.
