    Think of me as a Content Whisperer. I'm a gifted storyteller, dedicated to helping clients tell theirs. I say this unabashedly and with complete confidence. The proof, of course, is the words. Today, finding the right words is more important than ever, and I strive to under-promise but over-deliver. The name of my company says it all: words-are-my-biz And my philosophy is simple: The right words sell. The wrong words leave sales on the table. WHO I AM. I’m a professional writer living in Portland, Oregon with a lifelong passion for the power of the written word. I’ve written everything from novels to blogs, sales collateral to web content, ad copy to letters, business proposals to sales plans and training manuals. Not to mention a few thousand papers getting my four kids through high school and college. I love what I do. I approach every job intent on finding a happy ending and we aren't finished until we get there. HOW I GOT HERE. I bring more than thirty years of sales and marketing business management experience to every project, and by this I’m talking about major corporations to mid-size companies and start-ups, working in fields including software, real estate, law, publishing, advertising and services. I confess to having a particular fondness for high degree-of-difficulty challenges. HOW I DO WHAT I DO. Asking questions, lots of them, and listening and considering what I hear, followed by collaborative brainstorming to develop a plan we both embrace with confidence and enthusiasm. As you seek synergy within your organization, I seek it with my clients. It pays huge dividends. The common thread is in finding the way to communicate more effectively, internally and externally, with staff, customers and prospects. The common challenge is in identifying the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and unique competitive factors confronting each client. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ME. Read what my clients have to say about their experience working with me and my pledge to arrive at a happy ending, every time with every assignment. There are hundreds of reviews from clients that have become friends in virtually every industry and over thirty countries around the world. I look forward to hearing from you but know that I've made my practice not to take on work without conversation to first ensure a mutual fit. It's the path to happy, successful ending. Until then, wishing you good health and great success. andrew

    I've been a ghostwriter and editor for eight years. During that time, I have ghostwritten over forty books and thousands of articles, blogs, and meditations. I have worked in the spirituality, self-help, memoir, magical realism, fantasy, science-fiction, horror, crime, romance, poetry, lyrical, philosophy, and screenwriting arenas. In addition to ghostwriting and editing, I've also worked as a creativity guide, writing assistant, journalist, academic writer, and consultant. I received my undergraduate degree in Philosophy and Creative Writing in 2010, and I am nearing the end of a master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am a lover of animals, reading, music, art, film, and exploring the mysteries of existence. For the past twenty years, I have studied metaphysics, tarot and oracles, divination, astrology, dream interpretation, numerology, holistic healing, yoga, the chakra system, meditation, sacred medicine, and the healing arts in general. I am very familiar with Ayurveda, The Human Design System, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), BodyTalk, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Quantum Healing. I have experience with and am educated on supplements, herbs, and nootropics as well. I am fascinated by ancient history, astronomy, physics, neurobiology, and metaphysics, and I really love The Hero's Journey, Existentialism, Transcendentalism, Tibetan Buddhism, Taoism, Pantheism, Wicca, Shamanism, and Bushido (The Way of the Samurai). As a freelance writer and editor that shines in the spirituality, self-help, and memoir niches––I can bring clarity and richness to your projects. I am passionate about the pursuit of meaning and bringing insight to others. I enjoy creatively deepening a plot, as well as bringing about symbolism and understanding in poetic and profound new ways. I am constantly mesmerized by the power of spirit, mind, and feeling, thus my modus operandi is to seek out truth, transformation, and beauty in all that I do. I am thorough, professional, communicative, and highly original. I respectively acknowledge the terms of a contract and am open to moving at whatever speed you need. I am naturally upbeat; I love what I get to do for a living. Humanitarians reap benefits because of being true to themselves, as well as being capable of spiritually emanating compassion. I can help fine-tune your content and most authentic voice to resonate on an unconditionally pure, honest, and beneficial level. I only need you to speak your truth wholeheartedly so that I can give it as much depth as possible. That's my job and my purpose: helping people find their sincerest voice and most far reaching message. I look forward to working with you!

    Hello. Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile. I am a full-time freelance writer living in Portland Oregon. Over the past fifteen years I have written over 250 works of fiction (5,000-80,000 words each), numerous articles, essays and a batch of biographies. Each were well received and display my flexibility as a writer. I'm at my best when creating strong female voices. I am college educated with a degree from UMass Amherst. English is my native language. Deadlines are not a problem. I will not waste your time or mine with clever covers. If unexpected circumstances arise and I'm unable to meet a deadline, I'll let you know as soon as possible. Words are powerful tools when used properly. I treat them with respect. I pass everything through Grammarly and read it aloud before submission. I read compulsively and my natural curiosity makes me an excellent researcher. Often a writer in my position must give away the rights to a project. While I gladly do this, I take my work personally. I will offer my best to you and deliver what I promise.

    Hello there! I’m Jamie, and my goals as a content writer are simple: 1. Utilize SEO best practices and keyword strategy to improve your search engine ranking and boost organic traffic. 2. Keep people on your website by providing information they can use and content they want to read. I've helped drive organic traffic for clients in the utility locating, pest control, legal, technology, cleaning, cannabis, and urethane industries, among others. Believe it or not, all of this started with bed bugs. In 2019, I interned with a full-scale digital marketing agency in Cleveland, Ohio, where I was introduced to copywriting for the first time and instructed to write 600 words on why bed bugs are so hard to remove from apartments. For the next year and a half, I wrote articles about every aspect of bed bug removal as I fulfilled three different roles at the agency: intern, freelancer, and eventually full-time content specialist. I wrote blogs, articles, landing pages, and social media captions for multiple companies in my time at the agency, but the pests I wrote about at the beginning remain close to my heart. Let's face it, not everyone can say that they found their dream career thanks to bed bugs. Today, I am a freelance copywriter working behind the scenes to provide high-quality, engaging copy that brings value to your business. From short blurbs to high-level overviews to "I Tried It" blogs, I can easily pick up a brand voice and tailor content to exceed client expectations. Excellent English and grammar skills, along with efficient and thorough research abilities, help me produce the copy you've been looking for.

    I’ve been a book nerd for as long as I can remember. My mother was a librarian so I spent countless hours exploring the stacks in search of hidden knowledge. An intrepid researcher, I figured out the card catalog and Dewey decimal system to help me find all the secrets I craved. These days, my research techniques have evolved, but some things haven’t changed. I am always surrounded by piles of books and I lose hours researching my latest obsessions. How does this translate to my work? I know that information, presented in the right way, can captivate. From books to articles, blog posts to newsletters, everything I write is focused on the reader's experience. And that experience begins even before they land on the content I’m creating — because to read it, they need to find it. That means I’ve had to get savvy with everything from SEO best practices to social media marketing to make sure my audience finds what I have to offer. As a full-time freelancer, relationship building has been essential to my success. I rely on individuals and organizations having a good experience working with me, such that they will return to collaborate again and again. That means I make sure to clearly understand the scope and requirements of the project, take budgets and deadlines seriously, and promptly incorporate any feedback and edits into my work. SKILLS SUMMARY •Clear and engaging writing that connects with readers. •Ability to convey feeling and emotion. •Creates reader-focused content, tailored to the desired outcome. •Detail-oriented and able to meet deadlines. •Attention to project requirements and content standards for each client. •Skilled at finding and interviewing sources. •Experienced storyteller, from the page to the stage. •Remote work with local and international clients.

    Janelle Leeson is a three-time certificate of excellence winner (via the Cat Writers' Association) and freelance writer rapidly spreading across the pages of pet publications. Her byline is found in print in DotDash Meredith's Paw Print and Centennial Media's Inside Your Cat's Mind and Inside Your Dog's Mind. Her works can be found online at Daily Paws, USA Today Network, NBCUniversal, Great Pet Care, The Dog People by Rover, Fetch by The Dodo, Cuteness, and others. Janelle doesn’t just write about pets, she dedicates her spare time to the local shelters, is the go-to Portland cat-sitter, and hopes you say hi if you bump into Janelle and her adventure cats on the trail. Janelle began writing in 2020 as a passion project for sharing how and where to travel with cats. Janelle quickly realized her decade-long career as a biologist felt muted compared to the insistent curiosity that came with content writing and reporting. So, Janelle stopped writing about endangered species and started writing more about pets. Since then, Janelle has covered domestic pet behavior and health, current events, first-hand product reviews, and e-commerce roundups. Janelle is most proud of the opportunity to share exclusive expert interviews and learned experiences with inquisitive pet parents.

    Poets pack a punch with a few words. We're wordsmiths well-versed (no pun intended) with alliteration, metaphors, and similes. We love language that evokes emotion and engages the senses. These techniques hook your reader, make them FEEL something, and keep them reading. Which is why poets make great copywriters. But why should you care that I was a therapist? I use my empathy super powers to help you UNDERSTAND and CONNECT with your audience. To make them feel seen and understood. I can help you build trusting, long-term relationships with readers, clients, and customers. Bonus for therapist clients: I understand your field from the inside—as a client and provider. A FEW WORDS FROM HAPPY CLIENTS: "Fara was such a pleasure to work with on my website copy and design. She was attentive and thoughtful as we talked through my vision, and put my thoughts into words in a way I wouldn't have been able to do on my own. Fara is so easy to connect with. She's warm, engaged, and acutely attuned. I greatly appreciated her integrity, compassion, and follow through. She was thorough and checked in with me every step of the way. I believe the combination of her former experience as a therapist, talent in storytelling, and ability to transform a jumble of thoughts, feelings, and ideas into coherent, intentional prose and poetry make her an incredible copywriter. I couldn't recommend her enough!!" - Emily Berry, LPC emilyberrycounseling.com “The questions Fara proposed helped me distill my mission and the essence of my practice in a way I didn’t think was possible... She was able to add a finesse and direction that I struggled to find. My website is everything I hoped for and more, and Fara’s copywriting/copy editing skills are a big part of that.” Samantha Paquette, LMT - Lavender Moon Wellness SPECIALIZING IN: website copy (home page, about page, services and product descriptions, etc.), business names and taglines, and poetry ALL SERVICES: Poetry: I'm a published poet and can craft a custom poem for a ceremony, gift, or special occasion. I'm also happy to edit or give feedback on your work! Copywriting: I specialize in website copy and taglines, but can help with other projects. Reach out to see if your project and I are a good match. Revising: I have a knack for taking a piece of writing that's in rough shape and turning it into something spectacular. So send me your embarrassingly rough drafts and I'll make them shine. Design: I’ve designed websites; workbooks; newsletters; social media marketing materials for events and products; and more. I can pair copy with something eye-catching and elegant. I have experience with Canva, Wix, Weebly, and Squarespace, but I learn new platforms very quickly. WHO I WORK WITH I love working with people in creative or helping professions. But novelty and variety are great sources of creative inspiration for me so don’t hesitate to reach out to see if I can help with your project!

As a sewing pattern developer, I know how to synthesize complicated information and deliver it precisely and accurately so that anyone, from beginner to expert, can understand it. I’ve also been on both sides of the traditional publishing world—I am the author and photographer of two original needlework project books published by Potter Craft/Random House, and I was the in-house production editor for a book publisher in the Pacific Northwest for several years. I use all major style guides (sets of standards for the writing, editing, and formatting of text, depending on your discipline), including CMOS/Turabian, AP, MLA, and APA, and can consult with you on the appropriate guide to choose if you're not sure what standard to use for your particular work. I’ve only recently started on Upwork so I am just beginning to build a portfolio here, but I work smart and fast and will respond quickly to all inquiries and issues. I’d love to hear about your needs and discuss how I can help you!

    You need a story with characters and plotlines that leap off the page. You need a tale that will make your readers want more. That is where I come in. As a writer and storyteller, I consider intriguing dialogue and compelling narratives to be the fabric of my job description. No matter what type of writing project I am entrusted with, fiction or non-fiction, I seek to infuse each word I write with uniqueness, utilizing a style that will hook the reader from the very start, keeping him engaged until the final phrase. I have spent the majority of my freelancing life ghostwriting fiction in a variety of genres. The bulk of my experience lies with clients I’ve had the pleasure of working with through Upwork, seeing their writing jobs through to completion. Additionally, I’ve completed many projects with independent clients in the realms of both writing (bringing the stories they want to tell to life) and developmental editing (smoothing out plotline wrinkles and enhancing the quality of rough-draft works). I also hold the position of a Senior Writer with StoryTerrace. RATES: My rate is 0.09 cents per word for ghostwriting My rate is 0.08 cents for outlining. From western romances to paranormal shapeshifters to contemporary and mysteries, I am prepared to fulfill your writing needs. Creativity is my middle name, so leave that to me, I've got it handled. Please note that I DO NOT write anything of a 'steamy' or graphic nature. High energy and high emotion scenes, yes, steamy, no. I look forward to working with you! ****** Sierra Mullins has been fulfilling the fiction and non-fiction writing as well as developmental editing needs of her clients professionally since 2014. Seeing to the creation of high-quality content alongside strict deadlines is her line of work and the products of her creativity receive accolades from her clients and readers alike. Writing is not the only area of Sierra's life that keeps her immersed in the world of creativity. Her 10 year study of classical ballet, which she now teaches, and her study of cultural salsa dancing provide her with an additional connection to all things artistic. Through these additional connections to the artistic realm, she has had the opportunity to bring to life the biographies, experiences, and visions of the professional dancers she trains under. Due to the satisfaction of her clients, she has maintained her Top Rated Status consistently for years on Upwork. During this time, she has completed countless jobs in areas such as: Mail Order Bride, Contemporary Romance, Cozy Mystery, Thriller, Paranormal Shapeshifter, Amish, Non-Fiction Coffee Writing, and Article Writing. Sierra views her creative writing skills as a shareable commodity, a service that she can offer in order to turn the hopes and ideas of her clients into a reality of living color before their eyes. If you'd like to contact Sierra about a job please send her a proposal and include the words "Here Are My Writing Needs" at the top of your proposal so that she will know you read her profile thoroughly. Any proposal missing these words will not be considered.

    NOTE: I only consider clients who specifically work in the mental health arena, such as digital health apps and mental health therapists. I am no longer accepting one-time projects for blogs. If you'd like to enter into a monthly relationship with me, or if you have a large project (eBook, course, website copy), I'd love to hear from you! I am currently filling openings for April through August, 2024. ----------- Do you need someone with actual industry experience to create mental health/wellness content for you? If so, let's talk! My name is Saya and I'm a an extensively published mental health content writer and seasoned mental health professional. My expertise comes from 10+ years as a social worker/mental health professional in the field. I hold bachelor's and master's degrees in psychology and social work from two of the top universities in California. Especially when it comes to health-related subjects, it's important that your content writer knows what they're talking about - and I do! My writing has been featured in large publications such as GoodRX, PsychCentral, and more. My areas of expertise include: 💙 Mood disorders ⛈️ Anxiety & OCD 🏥 Holistic health 🧘 Meditation and Mindfulness 💅 Self-care 💹 Growth Mindset 🌅 Addiction & Recovery 📱 Digital Wellness 👪 Child and Family Therapy ...and much more! My writing is always engaging and I pride myself on being able to match YOUR brand's voice. Because I'm a therapist myself, my writing comes off sounding naturally like a friendly, knowledgeable therapist talking directly to potential clients. I didn't go to graduate school for nothing -- I know how to read original research and analyze the results of scientific studies. Without this experience, writers end up regurgitating the information they find on Google's top pages. I make sure that your content is packed with the most recent mental health research to set you up as a thought leader in your field. Because I'm a behavior change expert (recognized trainer in Motivational Interviewing), my content is gently persuasive; it will bring readers to your website and, most importantly, keep them there. I also offer this expertise when designing digital mental health courses, which is another service I offer. Please get in touch so that we can talk and figure out together if I'm a good fit for what you're looking for. I look forward to working together! Saya Des Marais, MSW
