    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.

    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 am a creative writer with a background in media production, both written and visual. I have detailed knowledge of the financial markets, and a grasp of economic history. I can write specialized opinion pieces, be they political or product oriented. And am happy to assume the opinion or position of a client, even if it is not my own. I also have studied modern psychology, with a specialty in Jungian theory and religious belief systems. The concept of meaning and the basis of belief are perhaps the most important factors contained in the base-level human psyche. NLP and Consensus Building (soft sell) are other areas of interest, and I can give my work varied levels of implied or explicit position (the way it is vs. the way it may be). I am very motivated, and can offer fast turnaround times and great value for money. I am a native English speaker, and am originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan. I have traveled extensively, and currently live in the Southern Cone of South America.

    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.

    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.

    With bachelor's degrees in both Advertising/Public Relations and Broadcast Journalism, I have worked in both marketing and television. I enjoy taking a small (or even nonexistent) budget and expanding an organization's marketing message reach and social media following. I've been managing the Twitter campaign for the NWA Gridiron Show since 2012. The first year I managed its Twitter campaign, I more than quadrupled followers with no paid marketing. Each year, I continue to grow the show's following by engaging with followers and writing humorous Tweets that communicate the show's core value of comedy about newsmakers: "A comedy show about people you know." When I worked at Mountain Air Organic Beds, I wrote new copy and edited old copy, fixing hundreds of errors. Additionally, I wrote press releases and ads, and designed a new website. Before college, I wrote for dozens of newspapers and magazines, including The Tampa Tribune, Teen People, and Country America.

    Nothing matters more to me than relationships. If you're looking for the best quality and service, hiring someone who wants to build that relationship with you is essential to success. Beyond this, finding a freelancer with a true love of writing helps ensure quality content for your website. As a former high school English teacher, I emphasized quality and attention to detail while nurturing my students' creativity. I taught high school students (grades 9-12) for 8 years in the public school system. I now realize my love of writing as a career freelance writer. I launched my writing agency, Phoenix Heart Writing Company, exclusively on Upwork because I believe in the value of the platform to connect great writers with top clients. You can choose to hire me directly for any of your writing needs or hire my trusted writers and/or myself to get a team effort on your project. Through the agency, we offer writing and editing services, a good alternative for those who want quality writing and editing for their content under one roof. I earned a Bachelor's in English, with a minor in Education, from the University of Maryland, College Park. My teaching experience is wide and varied, covering all areas that one can imagine for an English teacher: poetry, short stories, creative writing, academic writing, technical writing, persuasive writing, and especially journalism. I am passionate about analytical and expository writing and a have deep love of rhetoric. A blank page is my canvas, and I am able to craft imaginative, informative, and entertaining material. I regularly engage in ongoing education and skills development in areas that help enhance my ability to serve my clients. Focus areas include copywriting, content writing for the web, WordPress mastery, data visualization, and developing a keen understanding of customer profiles and SEO techniques. I am also what you might call a news junkie. I constantly consume information from numerous sources.

    I help small-to-medium-sized businesses create website content that engages readers and makes them want to do business with you. The content I write is designed to maximize conversions and help monetize your traffic. My job is to make your promotions worth as much as possible. Below are the services offered: Website Content I have you fill out a comprehensive and thought-provoking questionnaire so that by the time I finish reviewing it; I know exactly why you stand apart from your competitors. Once I understand that, I can write a clear and concise message on every page. Article Writing The difference between article writing and blog posts is really the number of words and the writing's overall tone. In other words, if you need to build trust and credibility on your website, it helps to include several well-researched​ articles about your expertise. This conveys authority and a level of seriousness in the style of writing. Blog Posts While blog posts can be informative (like articles), there’s an overall goal to connect more with your audience. This is a chance to show your personality and sense of humor (or not) and give a snippet of the culture behind your business. Blog posts are more “shareable” than articles and usually are presented in list format, quick tips, etc. Additional Content Services Offered: White Papers Lead Magnets Case Studies Emails Brochures Landing Pages AIO (Artificial Intelligence Optimization)

    I love to help authors proofread and polish their work, and frequently do book reviews also. I have been co-author of 5 books in the spiritual genre. I am a magazine writer, editor and proofreader.I have two blogs, on books and new products. I write magazine articles about such topics as quirky and historical travel, animals, the psychic world, and unusual museums or destinations.The books I've co-authored have been with a famous psychic/medium/motivational speaker. I have also written and produced radio programs and lectures. I pay great attention to detail regarding grammar, punctuation, sentence structure and spelling. I pride myself on my proofreading and editing skills. I also do book reviews so am exposed frequently to books in their final form or pre-release form, where I often catch mistakes before the finished product goes to print.

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.
