We provide writing support rooted in our experience producing high-quality writing at some of the most well-regarded universities in the world. Our technical proficiency is complimented by our attention to the needs of clients who are navigating admissions processes that are often daunting and stressful.


We support our clients in effectively using writing as a form of personal expression. Ethically, that means we strive to bring out the best voice from each writer we work with, and never ghostwrite or plagiarize.

Better Writing

Writing is a process, one that can always be improved through thoughtful practice. FourthWrite cultivates better writers by providing insights and guidance that help our clients engage with and improve their own writing process.


Brian Fobi


Brian Fobi co-founded FourthWrite and Gurufi.com in order to provide clients with admissions assistance that is ethical, true to clients voices, and highly effective. Brian brings 11 years of experience working in the admissions industry. In this time, working both for a university and as an independent consultant, he has developed a nuanced understanding of the admissions process and, by extension, how applicants can best position themselves. He has helped more than 7,000 clients navigate the admissions process, and along the way has recorded a satisfaction rate of over 99%. The reason is simple: he strives to maintain clients’ voices, remain true to their experiences, and reflect their life in the most positive manner possible. Brian has taught writing at Duke, Yale, and Harvard and has extensive background working with clients of all skill levels, including non-native English speakers.
