    After taking a hiatus from Upwork in order to focus on my screenwriting career, I've decided to get back into the swing of things in order to leverage my storytelling experience, love of character, and world-building expertise in a new field: narrative design. Games have always been a passion of mine. The games that hook my attention most are (and have always been) amazing stories at their cores. Stuff like Witcher III, where your choices truly matter. Like Persona 5, where relationships evolve and change. Like Dungeons & Dragons, where anything is possible. Like Pokemon, which... okay, these days, is mostly my guilty pleasure. The point is, those are the kinds of games I dream of making. Where actions have consequences and players get to watch a story unfold, and where players get to be a part of something meaningful, exciting, and different than their ordinary lives. And if that's what you're looking to create as well, then please reach out. I'd love to connect and see how I can help, be it with writing quests, dialogue, characters, item descriptions, or even core concepts.

    Stories are the foundation of human understanding and meaning-making. We understand the world through stories. Stories aren't just for bedtime or Netflix. They have their place in marketing, self-branding, teaching, games, and every other place humans are. As a storyteller with an M.A. in Mythological Studies and Depth Psychology, I bring a strong understanding of the story structure, themes, and elements and use it to craft the perfect copy, bio, website, game, or other content. Whether you need help developing, crafting, or perfecting a story for a brand, game, or company or someone to discuss creative ideas, I am excited to be a part of the journey.

    I'm a comedy writer with seven years of experience in the entertainment industry, and a freelance college essay tutor -- I had 25+ students applying for Fall '24, and so far most of them have gotten into their top choice school. I've written an episode of a sitcom, proofed scripts for major TV networks, been a finalist in several script competitions, written social media content for brands like Gibson Guitar, and been published in academic journals. Let's work together!

    I’m a freelance Screenwriter/Director and ACD Copywriter living in Brooklyn, NY. When I’m not watching “Golden Girls” or taking photos of my dog, I’m in my kitchen making homemade pasta (see last name). On a related note, I eat a lot of pasta. I have an MFA in film from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Once upon a time I was a Golden Gloves boxer. Now, I put my energy and few remaining braincells towards making the things I want to see in the world. And trying not to pull a muscle while doing it.

An award-nominated, Dramatist Guild playwright, Joe has written and ghostwritten stories and scripts of all kinds: comedy, drama, prose fiction, children's work, more ad copy and commercials than he'd like to admit, and a great deal of professional writing that defies easy category. His original play, Bringer of Doom, premiered at The Players Theatre in April 2023 and is set for its first Off-Broadway run at the same venue in July 2024 (bringerofdoomtheplay.com). He is a writer for the upcoming animated YouTube series Bad Guy vs. Bad Guy, a script writer for BabyBus, a children's story writer for NYC-based education company Blossom, a staff writer for cultural magazine Tawk of New Yawk, and his short fiction has appeared in Writer's Digest and Prometheus Dreaming.

    I am a freelance proofreader/copyeditor who loves clean copy and good prose. Every writer has their own way of telling a story. I strongly believe that a writer's voice needs to be preserved in their work. I'm just here to fix up the little things. My debut novel, NICE GIRLS, was published in September 2021. It was recommended by Entertainment Weekly, Cosmopolitan, Harper's Bazaar, New York Post, and The New York Times Book Review. In 2017, I placed in the Top 10% of the Academy Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting competition. Prior to this, I worked as a legal assistant and served as an editor for Cold Tea Collective, an online millennial news group. I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Minnesota with a BA in English and minors in Creative Writing and Asian American Studies. I also served as an editor in chief of the school's arts and literary magazine, The Tower.

    I have a couple of decades of experience in screenwriting, tv/film development, and pitching projects - some of which have been produced by Warner Bros. & Paramount Pictures... and one of which made the Black List. Additionally, I worked in feature film development at Paramount Pictures & New Line Cinema. This development background has also served to help me assist commercial directors and producers around the world for the past seven years. I’ve done everything from creating branded content from scratch to ghostwriting commercial treatments to helping conceptualize creative elements for global brands such as Budweiser, Absolut, BMW, Ford, Mercedes, Audi, Porsche, Apple, Google, Samsung, Revlon, etc.

    My name is Michael L. Porter, and I have been able to build up a career profile by taking on many challenges. I covered the Los Angeles Lakers for the likes of sportsoutwest.com where I conducted player interviews, attended games and practices as well as player signings and media sessions. I have also used my voice to narrate projects dealing with AI, science, and baseball. I am interested in narrative original stories and the unexplained. Experience producing content for brands via social media is also a strength of mine. I have a history of writing good copy and also helping tik-tokers develop brand-specific ads. Jack of all trades.
