    If you are looking for someone who is passionate about communicating, has a deep understanding of anything to do with the investment, financial services or fintech industries, as well as personal finance and the global economy, get hold of me. I am skilled at distilling complex concepts into engaging content that stands out from the crowd and combine these with visual elements (infographics, images, graphics) that make the messaging even more powerful. I am an experienced writer, editor, communications manager and strategist, as well as former financial journalist, who became a communications consultant and freelance writer this year after working as a communications manager in the asset management industry for more than a decade. Before that I was a financial journalist for 15 years, covering economics, financial markets, the financial services sector and personal finance. I started out my career as an assistant economist at one of South Africa's largest banks. I am skilled at writing across a wide range of communications mediums, including websites, publications, brochures and social media. I can write insightful, research-based thought leadership articles and white papers, as well as short, punchy and engaging content and infographics. As Head of Communications at two of South Africa’s largest asset management companies, I managed a team of communications professionals. We produced a range of annual thought leadership publications, monthly magazines and an online blog. I conceptualised, set up and was publisher and editor of Richer Life, a monthly financial lifestyle magazine, produced and distributed in conjunction with Finance Week, a leading weekly financial publication. During my journalism career, I wrote an average of one cover story a month as economics editor for Finance Week in the mid-nineties. A few years later I covered the banking sector for Financial Mail during a period of significant activity for the industry, with many small, boutique investment banks setting up in competition with the “big four” banks. I conceptualised, set up and was publisher and editor of Richer Life, a monthly financial lifestyle magazine, produced and distributed in conjunction with Finance Week, a leading weekly financial publication. As a result of my interest in what it takes to be a true leader, I partnered with Business Report and Corporate Research Foundation in producing, writing and editing my brainchild, the annual South Africa’s Leading Managers publication. I edit efficiently and with a light touch, focusing on enhancing the rhythm and energy of the writing and always honouring the voice of the author, while making sure there are no grammar gremlins or typos. I have strong strategic communications and content marketing skills and am proactive, energised and passionate about my vocation.

    WHAT YOU NEED: You've got the story, you'd just like some help telling it. You've got the product, but you need the creative copy and content marketing that will spread the word. You've got the grades, but will your personal statement get you into an Ivy League school? WHO I AM: I'm a Brooklyn-based writer and editor with over eight years of experience in journalism, editing, and writing both creative and promotional. As a student at the University of Southern California (USC), I studied Print & Digital Journalism for two years, during which time I contributed to numerous student and independent publications as a writer and editor. I switched majors my sophomore year and graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in Narrative Studies, an interdisciplinary writing and literature degree. Since 2015, I have operated a peer-to-peer editing service called Run The Jules, focusing mostly on remote editing for academic essays, college applications and medical/law school applications. My students have gained entry to prestigious institutions such as Brown University, UCLA, LMU, USC Keck Medical School, and Harvard Law School. I currently serve as the copy editor for monthly trade journal mg Magazine and a staff copywriter for 1o8 Agency, where I write blog posts, white papers and web copy for businesses in a variety of niches, from higher education to quantum computing. For three years, I served as Head Writer and Copy Editor for Lafayette Social, a Bay Area-based publication with a circulation of about 10,000. In addition to penning three of the magazine's feature stories each month, I edited and proofread the entire magazine from rough draft to final proof, ensuring that our content was consistent and professional. When I'm not editing, I work in music licensing and enjoy camping, going to concerts, and playing guitar. As a graduate of the Americorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), I value service to my community and spent years volunteering with food security and gardening-oriented nonprofits around the LA area. WHAT I OFFER: • proofreading/copy editing (digital content, blogs, academic writing and business writing) • content creation for blogs, online publications and marketing campaigns • editing and advising on college and graduate school application essays, cover letters, grants and scholarship essays • press releases, creative advertising copy, social media copy, promotional content • quick turnaround, reliable communication, constructive feedback Life is busy, and writing isn't easy. Let me polish your content, sell your ideas, and bring your stories to life. Cheers, Jules

    I am a journalist and freelance writer specializing in sports and politics. I have produced daily content for clients on a wide variety of topics from senior care to Middle Eastern politics. I thoroughly enjoy writing, and I also write creatively in my free time. I have Bachelor's degrees in Political Science and Media Studies from the University of Colorado Boulder and a Master of Science in Political Science from Leiden University. These studies have allowed me to study a wide variety of fields and write about different historical periods, cultures and lifestyles. I enjoy football (soccer), basketball, politics and fiction reading/writing. My studies have also had an international focus, so I enjoy writing with the international community in mind, and I think this allows me to reach a larger audience.

    Hello. My name is Andrew Davey. I have over eight years’ experience in journalism, and seventeen years' experience in blogging and content creation. Having worked my way up over these last seventeen years, I am continually on the lookout for new challenges in media, and I truly want to achieve new professional goals and grow further as a content creator. I have worked for over a decade and a half to improve my skill set in this realm, and I am hopeful that I can do and experience more by venturing into new realms of the media landscape going forward. Throughout my previous positions: I blogged about what happened in my local community, I jumped into more professional journalist roles, I navigated my way through two presidential elections in an early nominating state and a swing state as a credentialed journalist, I covered multiple state legislative sessions, and I jumped head-first into covering multiple complex policy fields - from public education to public lands and public health. I believe that this experience, coupled with my excellent interpersonal and organizational skills, make me a strong candidate for this position. In my previous roles at Let's Talk Nevada, Nevada Forward, and Nevada Today, I was responsible for juggling day-to-day local news coverage - from public lands "range war" to public health emergencies. In the 2016 and 2020 election cycles, I worked on these stories alongside presidential election coverage, and I did my best to "connect the dots" with readers as we sought answers from the candidates when they came to visit. More recently, I have worked this year as a writer for Digital Trends' The Manual. There, I have written brand new content and brought older content up to date. Thus far, I have completed multiple travel guides, special travel content, outdoor adventure guides, product reviews, and additional educational content. Last year, I actually found another longer-term contract right here at Upwork. At Let's Roam, I put together many, many scavenger hunts, and I learned plenty of new and amazing skills during my time there. That, in turn, made me more flexible and better able to deliver all kinds of SEO and consumer-friendly content. Going forward, I definitely want to write and develop more travel content. If you need someone to write travel guides, provide helpful travel tips, write reviews (for hotels, vacation rentals, airlines, transit systems, etc.), and create additional travel content, I hope you consider me. If you're looking for a writer to handle other topics, I am open to learning more about who you are, what you do, and how I can help you. Even if you're interested in me doing some different kinds of writing for you, please feel free to reach out. I'm open to expanding my horizons further, and I'm interested in helping you reach your goals while I make progress on mine.

    I will work with you to tighten, clarify, and strengthen your content while preserving your voice and optimizing for SEO. I will also write original, on-brand content that will engage your readers. I have more than 15 years of professional experience, a bachelor's degree in journalism, and a minor in creative writing. I will approach your projects with journalistic discipline and ethics combined with fluency in creative writing techniques. For work that requires SEO optimization, I use best practices that will help your content rank well in search organically. I don't resort to cheap tactics like keyword-stuffing and content "spinning." As a journalist by nature my highest priority is top-quality, ethically created content. And that's the key to ranking well in the SERPs. What I've been writing and editing recently: • Onsite content, including long-form assets and digital PR, guest posts, and case studies. I know how to engage the reader, answer search intent, and call to action. • Web copy, optimized for SEO. • Video scripts. • Articles. • Newsletter and social media content, including LinkedIn articles. • Long-form and short-form fiction. • Copy for display advertisements. You'll be working with me directly on everything (I'm solo; not an agency). But for years, I've led a hand-picked team of subject matter experts and copywriters to create digital assets that drive traffic and rank well in search. Earlier in my career, I led an award-winning newsroom to produce weekly coverage of crime, politics, and events. Next, I was the final stamp on all external publications for the largest government agency in my state. There, I also led a small team of writers and photographers to produce a monthly internal publication. For editing work, here's my process: 1. You share your draft with me as a Google or Word doc. 2. I give it a pass for developmental edits as well as proofreading/line editing. On request, I will track my changes so you can accept or reject each one individually. I will also leave an "overall feedback" breakdown at the top of the document. 3. Once you've reviewed your new draft, I'll make any changes needed. 4. What follows (and the timeline) depends on the unique needs of your content. Links to recent projects available on request. If you have a project in mind, let's talk.

    If you want entertaining content that captures attention while delivering your message, I can help. In fact, if you're looking for newsletter help or even some kind of shenanigans I’ve never seen before (What? I thought we were in the trust tree), I might just be the “only” person on this site who can deliver what you’re looking for. Bold claim, yes, but let me explain. My name is Wade Skalsky and I specialize in delivering content that keeps people’s attention by entertaining them first and delivering the brand messaging second. Plenty of newsletter writers say they are good at ‘infotainment' but they usually only have one side of the coin. In other words, they are funny but lack the ability to match the 'voice' of their client, or vice versa. “But Wade, you haven’t told me any jokes yet. I came for the clown show.” No, you didn’t. You came for help with delivering your message. Unlike other newsletter writers, I am the best at infotainment because I understand tone, context, and proper framing while being interesting and informative at the same time. “I have a very particular set of skills.” <-------In my best gravelly Liam Neeson voice. Here’s the proof. I won a coveted producer award for my one-man show, Fish out Of Whiskey, at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. Lots of people are talented creative writers, I just happen to also be a veteran 20-year Los Angeles trial attorney. I know how to professionally persuade and entertain total strangers all day, every day. (The whole lawyer thing also means I know all about compliance issues in your industry.) So far, I’m the only newsletter writer I have ever seen who uses elite-level persuasion, honed over decades of trial work, coupled with an outrageous live theatre game earned on the Los Angeles theatre row. When you work with me, first we’ll get on a deep dive call where I will ask about your business, your customers, and figure out how entertaining your brand is. Why the last one? I strive to be one or two degrees more entertaining than my client’s brand. There is that dang context issue again. Content and brand mismatch is an absolute killer mistake. I will not work with people who are unwilling to figure out how they want to frame their brand using infotainment. We will collaborate on this issue together, but it takes two to polka. If you want to dance, contact me to see if it’s a good fit. I’m busy building my own platform off Upwork so don’t get ants in your pants if it takes me a bit to get back to you.

    I am a wordsmith with more than a decade of experience in multiple fields and genres. I’ve been a published author since 2013 and worked for six years as an award-winning news reporter and digital editor at the Greensburg Daily News. I have extensive experience with news articles, feature articles, copywriting, content writing, press releases, community news, editing at all levels, proofreading, data entry, transcription, AP format, rewriting content, reviews, and interviews, along with both fiction and nonfiction work from essays to novels. I am familiar but not an expert with SEO writing, content advertising, and keyword research. One of my specialties is a service I call comprehensive editing. It involves rewriting the first draft to polish it to a professional standard. I can match any style required and help authors tell their stories through dialogue and action within immersive, descriptive settings. I am used to working with deadlines and have a fast turnaround. Attention to detail is part of my routine and I produce work with minimal errors. Writing is my passion, and I believe I can use that to your advantage.

How to Hire Top Journalists

How to hire journalists

A big part of content marketing is covering the news. If you want to create compelling content designed to keep your audience informed about newsworthy events in your industry, a journalist can help.

So how do you hire journalists? What follows are some tips for finding top journalists on Upwork

How to shortlist journalism professionals

As you’re browsing available journalism consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the freelancers you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:

  • Industry fit. You want a journalist who understands your industry so they can write news stories that resonate with your target market.
  • Project experience. Screen candidate profiles for specific skills and experience (e.g., writing press releases).
  • Feedback Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular journalist.

How to write an effective journalism job post

With a clear picture of your ideal journalist in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

An effective journalism job post should include:

  • Scope of work: From covering the news to ghostwriting for your blog, list all the deliverables you’ll need.
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project.
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain industries or writing styles, mention this here.
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

JOURNALISTS FAQ

What is journalism?

Journalism is the practice of writing news stories, usually for magazines, newspapers, and blogs. Journalists bring together a mix of creative writing, storytelling, and research.

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in journalism consultants:

  • Journalism
  • Research
  • Writing expertise (copywriting, ghostwriting, content creation)
  • Editing and proofreading
  • Industry-specific expertise (e.g., health, finance, science)

Why hire journalists?

The trick to finding top journalists is to identify your needs. Is your goal to cover company milestones in regular press releases? Will your journalist need to conduct their own research and perform their own interviews? The cost of your project will depend largely on your scope of work and the specific skills needed to bring your project to life.

How much does it cost to hire a journalist?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced journalist may command higher fees but also work faster, have more specialized areas of expertise, and deliver a higher-quality product.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their journalism services more competitively.

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project.
