J.M.Jakus is pursuing an M.A. in International Relations: Europe, Turkey, and the Middle East at Boğaziçi Üniversitesi in İstanbul, Turkey. Prior to this, Jakus fulfilled a photojournalistic position in Cauca, Colombia serving victims of the internal armed conflict shortly after completing a B.A. in International Studies and Economics minor at Washington College in Maryland. Today, Jakus' work continues to reflect humanistic values and the desire to rewrite systems of inequity, rather than to address injustice symptomatically. Though Jakus recently relocated to Southern California, Turkey remains close to the heart.
Are you a prospective co-author, analyst, or researcher?
Think of this platform as a connection point. Here, clients can find quality editorial solutions for their projects, large and small. You can even reach out about co-authorship, individual or institutional research partnerships, archive assistance, or co-publishing opportunities.
Though client projects of all scales are welcome, Jakus specializes in deep-dive pieces zooming into a particular phenomenon, and analyzing it vertically, from top to bottom.
These pieces blend long-form journalistic strategies with mixed empirical methods. The stylistic result is a hybrid of lyric and analytical writing that can take several months or, even years, to craft. Perhaps the greatest irony of this interest is that short synopsis or spin-off articles reflecting on the larger research process (or related topics) can be churned out in a matter of hours -- and maintain the same quality-- precisely because of the time and integrity already devoted to the topic(s) at hand.
"Julia was such a joy to work with on my project. She is easy to communicate with while providing highly professional work. Julia does excellent work with a quick turnaround. She also responds to messages very quickly. I would definitely recommend Julia to my friends and colleagues and would be glad to request her services for myself in the future. She provided a 5 -star job."
"I recently hired Julia for a combined graphic design and business communications project for my private medical practice and would like to give her my highest endorsement. Her work ethic is second-to-none and she maintains a strong line of communication which showed me that my work was in good hands. Not only is she professional, but she is a true pleasure to work with. Julia's finished products far exceeded my expectations, and I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a professional writer, copywriter, and/or editor. I would definitely hire her again in the future. Thank you, Julia. I love your work!"
"Honest and intelligent writer. Reliable find."
"Julia helped me prepare for the IELTS exam by editing my practice short essays. My main goals were to see how one could use a wider range of vocabulary and smoother grammatical structures to improve my fluency and flexibility in my English writing. I've already seen improvements in a short period of working together and plan to continue using her services in the future!"
