    The best writing is precise, concise, accurate, and accessible to a non-specialist. I am a native English speaker with extensive editing and writing experience. I am comfortable writing about anything in science or commerce, and specialize in the natural sciences, medicine, psychology, history, and the social sciences. Cryptocurrency has become a subspecialty of mine. I can edit and write about any topic. As a retired professor with a Ph.D., I have published over 70 papers. Forty of those papers have been cited at least 40 times! You can see all my work on Google Scholar, linked on my portfolio. For 15 years, I was an associate editor of "Systematic Biology", one of the highest impact journals in science. I guided many doctoral dissertations to successful completion and was head of admissions in my department. I have a strong record in writing proposals ​and have been awarded seven NSF grants. I have years of experience in teaching as well, with demonstrated success at primary, secondary, undergraduate and graduate levels. This experience has provided skills in explaining things to any targeted audience, from 5 year-olds to professors. Just because I am capable of writing highly complex technical stuff does not mean that I cannot communicate to a general audience. Please do not invite me to interview for fixed-price jobs. I prefer hourly rates so that I can offer you meticulous service, without rushing. Thanks Karl Kjer Keywords: Biotechnology, DNA, high-throughput sequencing, bioinformatics, phylogenomics, DNA barcoding, PCR, aquatic biomonitoring, Coronavirus COVID-19, entomology, mammals, honey bees​, immunology, medical writing, education, school application materials, admissions, psychology, history, cryptocurrency, and Medicinal plants.

    As a writer and editor, I create clear, concise content that communicates easily with readers. I specialize in admissions essays, SEO blogs, and bios, and I also have a strong background in web content, academic writing, non-fiction, fiction, and poetry. I served as the Head Editor for Modern Singer Magazine for four years, and I am comfortable editing both long- and short-form pieces of all genres. I can provide detailed proofreading and copy editing, as well as more extensive developmental editing that includes larger issues of content, structure, tone, and character. As a professional opera singer, I am an excellent resource for artists, musicians, and everyone in the creative sphere. I specialize in creating professional bios and honing artistic resumes, as well as helping creatives translate those skills to non-artistic jobs in cover letters and resumes. I also have a minor in History and am a very capable academic and non-fiction writer, with a specialty in the Chicago Manual of Style. I received a Mellon Scholar Grant to write my article, “ ‘And if any person would meddle of my cause:' Anne Boleyn, Music, and Sexism.”

    Currently, I work with several clients. Mainly as an anthropologist who helps with research or creative thinking. But I also work on developing company cultures and management strategies. Besides this, I write science news, research articles, and fiction. My Bachelor degree is in Ethnology and Anthropology (Philosophical Faculty of Belgrade). During my bachelor studies, I was a research assistant at the seminar for Socio-cultural anthropology in the Research Centre of Petnica, Valjevo. Together with three colleagues, I participated in organizing an exhibition at the Ethnographical Museum of Belgrade, titled: "Glamour in the" Serbian way": Graduation balls (1991-2014) Besides this, I published articles and essays in several magazines and also I participated in scientific conferences. My goal is to use my academic and business knowledge to improve work collectives and company productivity. Besides that, I am an inquisitive person who loves exploring science, art, and spirituality, and I greatly appreciate human cultural diversity.

    I am a tertiary-trained (native-speaking) writer, editor and writing coach across genres, including non-fiction, fiction, memoir and biography, business, content, children's and young adult literature. I am trained and skilled in both British and American grammar styles; I am always responsive to messages and feedback, and I never miss a deadline as this recent Upwork feedback attests: "Margaret is a phenomenal writer who delivers exceptionally final product of the highest quality. More importantly, I have worked with her a few times, and the turnaround is always on-time and with efficiency. Thank you!" More words from clients: (1) Jill Forster, PhD in educational psychology, twenty years as consultant and university lecturer. Published writings include research articles and books: Think about Creativity, Think about Mentoring, Honeyed Ramblings, and Mother of the Child. Margaret very capably edited my now published memoir, Mother of the Child. As a knowledgeable grammarian she was helpful in taking the initiative to recommend layout variations. Her skilful formatting assistance was valuable and throughout the process she remained responsive to the intended nuances in the writing style. (2) Prof. Shirley Randell AO, PhD, Hon.DLitt, FACE, FIML, FAICD, FIPAA Conjoint Professor of Practice, School of Education, Faculty of Education and Arts, University of Newcastle Adjunct Professor, Faculty of Education, University of Canberra I consider Margaret to be an exceptional editor as a committed and engaging writer herself, with the ability to support both amateur and experienced authors and academics. I recommend her for any editing work she is asked to undertake.

    I have extensive professional writing experience with major internet publishers. If you need engaging prose, backed with solid research skills and sound SEO instincts, I can convey your message. I have written hundreds of blog posts, magazine-length articles, newsletters, press releases, business letters, and even an audiobook. My background is in journalism, and I was trained to work accurately and efficiently and to never consider missing a deadline. I endeavor to submit clean copy that is ready to publish without major edits required on your end. My professional experience online goes back to being one of the first free-lance editors for Amazon.com in its earliest years. I later created a history site for IAC’s Dotdash (formerly About.com) and wrote and maintained it for a dozen years. I developed a specialty in recent years of writing about history, but I’ve written about all sorts of subjects, ranging from (long ago) coverage of punk bands to (much more recently) B2B business blogs.

    Hello, my name is Tim Foxley. I am British, from London, now living in Sweden. I am educated to Master’s degree level (with a Distinction in Peace and Conflict Studies). I have twenty five years of British government work under my belt (in the defence and intelligence sectors), four years at an internationally acclaimed think-tank and ten years as an independent political/military analyst. In 2005 I receive the MBE for my analytical and written work. My core skills are reading, writing, drafting, editing, researching, fact-checking and creative thinking. Some of my analytical work has been published. My English language skills are excellent. I have a good eye for detail, nuance, structure and layout. I guarantee total confidentiality and impartiality. I have an extensive interest in history, military history and conflict. I have read extensively about the wars of the 20th century, particularly WW2 but am interested in a diverse range of historical subjects. As a freelance writer I have written six books for a Kindle/Amazon publisher – five biographies of World War Two combat pilots and one of a Soviet WW2 commander. I have a ghost-writing contract from a Swedish publishing company and have just written books about the 1879 Zulu War and the 1899-1902 Boer War. Feedback I received from my Upwork freelance work includes: "Tim's expertise and passion for history, especially his attention to detail, significantly enriched the scriptwriting process. He crafted a captivating and thoroughly researched narrative tailored to the given topic. Impressed by his work, I have enlisted his services for more projects." “Overall I really loved your script and your lively, engaging writing style - it kept me interested the whole way through which is perfect, it's what our channel needs! You're a great writer!” “Your scripts have been excellently researched so there haven't been any fact checking problems…it's been so refreshing to read scripts like yours that are so clearly written by a talented, real writer. So that's a long way of saying I have absolutely no issues with your process. So please let me know when you are ready for another…” "Thanks, Tim! I really enjoyed this and thought you did an amazing job with both the tone and structure. Even after doing videos on the xxxx on other channels, I still felt like I learned a lot from this.” "Outstanding research and writing from Tim. Really did help us reach our goals with his writing and was a real pleasure to work with. Such a professional and delivered above and beyond and would like to work with him again…” I have a diverse range of skills and experiences: I have had military training in the British Territorial Army reserves. I am an amateur historian and a computer music enthusiast. I have completed operational tours of duty in Bosnia and Afghanistan. I have just finished a science fiction novel about time travel. I am a very keen punk rock guitarist and a much less keen marathon runner. I would be very happy to informally discuss your needs, provide you with some initial thoughts and send examples of my written work. Although I am very happy to advise, brainstorm, critique, proofread and assist with comments and ideas, I am not interested in writing anyone's academic paper for them. Best regards, Tim Tim Foxley MBE MA

    I am a thoroughbred writer. I usually do historical research on Near Eastern prehistory and the history of cinema, and when I am not doing that I work as a film critic in a well established journal. Also, I have written a novel and a bunch of short stories. What I mean is, I can write anything and about anything. Just give me a topic and a few directions, and off I go. I am passionate about my writing, and just as serious about getting it right and having it extensively researched. All your creative or academic writing needs will be met, I promise.

    As a writer, I am passionate about sharing information with others via the written word! I work hard to craft expertly written content in all forms. While I enjoy blogging and scriptwriting, I am no stranger to professional, scholarly work. Along with research and writing, my strengths are in editing, proofreading, project creation, and public speaking. I currently contribute to several history-related blogs and am a scriptwriter for YouTube channels. In 2018, I authored a history book for Brookville Equipment Corporation entitled "Brookville: On Track for a Century." The book is a complete historical account of the business, highlighting its start in 1918 and ending in 2018. I also ghostwrote the interviews throughout the work. While employed at Brookville, I also worked with the marketing department to help create and edit everything from brochures to new releases. I started a company newsletter entitled "Off the Rail," which I designed, wrote, and distributed every month. I have worked on projects that required developmental and copy editing, proofreading, crafting and editing professional literature, researching and writing blog content, and scriptwriting.

    I am an established author who has had books published on sport, history, historical fiction and current affairs.

I am currently writing a biography of Aung San Suu Kyi plus I have also had 'Flat caps and Tangerine Scarves - a biography of Blackpool FC' published. I'm currently writing the biography of a former England footballer, as authorised by his family. I am very keen on history as that is my genre. My greatest writing book (in my opinion) is 'In My End Is My Beginning', a fictional account of the last 24 hours in the life of Mary, Queen of Scots. If anyone wants an historical drama writing, then I'm your man!!! I am English and my grammar is excellent as I was a BBC journalist for 26 years. I am also fluent in French

I have created numerous book summaries and analyses, history books and articles, language learning blogs, poetry and literature learning guides, self-development workbooks based on famous non-fiction titles, listicles, tutorials, and SEO articles on a plethora of topics from humanities to tech. A note on generative AI: I love AI, but I don't use it to write my articles. I train it. Unlike most writers who either felt threatened by the emergence of generative AI or started submitting ChatGPT-generated pieces as their own, I saw this evolution as an opportunity to use my skills in a new way. I've been working on some of the hottest generative AI projects for the last two years as a Data Linguist/Annotator and AI Chatbot Trainer. I'm thrilled at the potential of large language models, although I'm aware of their limitations more than most people are. If you're still wondering why you should (or shouldn't) work with me, here are some things that may help you decide - both pros and cons. Pros: - Extensive education and a diverse set of interests ranging from ancient history and religion to artificial intelligence language models - Exceptional close reading skills (essential to the research part of every serious writing project) - High capability of writing in various styles - from social media write-ups to academic essays - copywriting included - Experience in completing both super-concise and large, comprehensive pieces (from book blurbs and ads to full-length non-fiction books) - I know you're equally interested in SERPs and capturing the attention of your audience. That's exactly why my approach combines in-depth research, SEO optimization, and an understanding of human psychology to capture the human hearts and search engine crawlers simultaneously. Cons: - I'm a bit picky when it comes to the subject matter - there are some topics that I just won't tackle (nothing to worry about if I applied to a job that you posted - I had obviously read the description and liked it) - I don't have many samples to show. I take the rules of ghostwriting seriously, and I won't show you the work I did for someone else. Likewise, I won't give anyone access to the work I completed for you. When it comes to articles with bylines, please see my articles on the LiveXP blog, my Medium publication "Booksist", or my Christian blog called Christian Write-Ups on WordPress. (Btw. I've been planning to start a blog on AI, but work keeps getting in the way.) Have more questions or want to hire me? Click "Invite to Job" and let me know what you need. I look forward to your messages!
