The Page 17 story, starting in sophomore English at Glenbard North High School.

Boy walks into class. Boy gets thin paperback textbook. Boy can’t stop rereading advice on page 17: “Omit needless words.” Boy grows up, writes ad copy and leads creative departments before deciding to venture off on his own. You enter the story here. You’re looking for wow-worthy ideas and crisp copy. You get it. You need editing and proofing help. You get it. You could use a personal writing coach who tailors a mentorship to your specific challenges. You guessed it: you get it. You’re delighted. We’re happy. Boy’s high school English teacher is downright giddy.
