    Hello! I'm Tyler! I am very fond of words. They're funny things. They can be dull if they aren't handled properly, even capricious. They can twist away from your intentions like a willful child. It's a great joy to see the living potential of someone else's ideas and wrangle all of those words into a vessel for their passion. I can only hope you'll allow me the happy opportunity to uncover all of the life inside your work. My previous experience ranges from print journalism, to indie comics, to freelance RPG writing in the OSR style. My personal tastes tend towards the uncanny, the bizarre, and the grim; but I thrive on variety and I love a challenge. I've worked on comedy sketches, artist reviews, and fan-fiction as needed, so I can fill any niche that you need.

    Transforming Ideas into Masterpieces: Your Story, Your Way! When words cannot capture the brilliance of your ideas, look no further. Writing is my art, and each piece is a unique masterpiece, whether it's for myself or my clients. I have almost six years of freelancing experience and have received great feedback for ghostwriting and co-writing books. I've contributed to anthologies, exploring genres like romance, fantasy, sci-fi, crime thrillers, and more. Drama, suspense, mystery—I bring them to life, tailoring each piece to your vision, always meeting deadlines. Believing in the richness of diversity, I craft plots, storylines, and characters with a keen eye for detail. My works are never repetitive; they stand out in originality. I've edited and proofread novels, short stories, and critiqued both fiction and non-fiction. Fiction storytelling was my first love, but non-fiction is now second nature. From academic research papers to articles on diverse topics, I've seamlessly blended creativity with facts. Adaptable and affordable, I turn clients' ideas into creative paragraphs. If you're ready to transform your story idea into a masterpiece, I'm just a 'hire' button away. Let's create something extraordinary together!

I am forever grateful for every opportunity I get to harness the power of words to transform ideas into impactful texts and positively position businesses. Why Do I Write? Every word is essential to me; if I'm honest, words are all I have. Words are the ingredients that realize my imagination. They are my only tools. I have a sense of humor—people say so—that finds its way into my works, and my ability covers a range of disciplines. Whether it's a short story, a script, an article, web writing, copywriting, or ghostwriting about ghosts, I can handle it. I can employ my expertise to improve your business and help you tell an old story with fresh, intriguing insights. Also, if you need help designing a concept for your brand, and the words won't budge, or you want to flesh out an idea that seems stuck in its conceptual mold, contact me; let's find a solution for you. I'm the team lead of King Homes Charity's Content Creation Department, where I contribute my quota to managing a team of creatives devoted to the service of humanity.

    I have been writing for many years, and am a staff writer for 2 online magazines, as well as having my own blog. I am also a member of the National Union of Journalists. I am a perfectionist and will deliver consistently high standards with thorough research every time. Writing is my full-time job - I don't do it as a 'side-gig', it's what pays the bills and therefore I always make sure I give every project 100%. I am a qualified Hypnotherapist, Past Life Regression Therapist, Holistic Pain Management Consultant and have also studied Aromatherapy and Herbalism. I also hold a diploma in Law of Attraction studies. My writing style is observational humour - I have the (sometimes frowned upon) ability to see the lighter side in most situations, and this shows in my work. I am English born and bred, so excellent grammar and spelling are guaranteed - however, I am also proficient in US English, so whether you are in the UK or the US you can rest assured you are in the best possible hands; you have the best of both worlds! I would love to be given the opportunity to show what I can do for you. Thank you for reading.

    I am a published fiction, nonfiction, article and grant writer with over twenty years of experience. In articles, I have covered everything from business IT, to Pagan practices, to self-help, to various academic subjects. I blog on a variety of subjects, from spirituality to chronic illness. In fiction I cross genres quite easily and have published several speculative fiction stories. I am also an experienced ghostwriter, and helped a large homeless healthcare nonprofit renew their grant yearly for over a decade. I am organized, flexible, and have never missed a deadline. References available. Contact me, and let's see how I can help you acquire, clean up or produce stellar content!

How to hire short story writers

From pop periodicals to fan fiction, short story writers are here to help put your ideas to paper.

So how do you hire short story writers? What follows are some tips for finding top short story writers on Upwork.

How to shortlist short story writing professionals

As you’re browsing available short story writing contractors, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the professionals you may want to interview. You can screen profiles using criteria such as:

  • Genre fit. You want a writer who understands the type of short story you wish to tell.
  • Project experience. Screen candidate profiles for specific skills and experience (e.g., instructional design background for incorporating short stories into an online course).
  • 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 short story writer.

How to write an effective short story writing job post

With a clear picture of your ideal short story writer 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 short story writing job post should include:

  • Scope of work: From periodicals to anthologies, 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 genres or subject-matter expertise, mention this here.
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

SHORT STORY WRITER FAQ

What is a short story?

A short story is a type of prose that is generally intended to be read in one sitting. This brevity generally means a short story, even when part of an anthology or series, can be enjoyed as a self-contained complete narrative.

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in short story writing professionals:

  • Short story writing
  • Creative writing
  • Ghostwriting
  • Proofreading and editing

Why hire a short story writer?

The trick to finding top short story writers is to identify your needs. Is your goal to find a published author to regularly contribute content to your romance themed blog? Or are you looking for a ghostwriter to bring your pulp fiction short to life? 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 short story writer?

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

  • An experienced short story writer 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 short story writing more competitively.

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