Professional wordsmith | Writing and editing

Here's what I wish they'd taught me in college: writing doesn't matter if no one will read it. At least not from a business standpoint. It's like that old line about a tree falling in a forest: if you create a document but your target audience ignores it because it's not tailored to their needs, does it make a sound? People are busy! They aren't going to waste their time reading something that isn't relevant, that's too long or wordy, that strikes the wrong tone. From website copy to technical documentation to fiction, this principle stands firm: writing doesn't matter if no one will read it. That's where I come in. My job is to consider your audience, and then take your message, content or idea and craft it into something suited to that audience's needs. In addition to writing new text or editing existing text, I can do document design, formatting and layout, and even create figures and diagrams where needed—all in service of making sure your message gets to its intended audience. You may ask how I back up that claim. My answer: more than ten years' experience writing and editing professionally, a college degree in the field, and a lifetime of being everyone's go-to when they need their English essay proofread. For more concrete evidence, check out my portfolio below. But the best way to find out what I can do for you is to ask: reach out to me here on Upwork. I'd love to talk to you.
