    Hi! Welcome to my profile. Since you need a writer, allow me to introduce myself. I have written over twenty novels in various genres and am always looking for a new challenge. Although I am more comfortable with fiction, I have also worked as a copywriter. If you need it written, I'm the person for the job! I'm an effective ghostwriter and have signed several non-disclosure agreements. I work discreetly and pride myself on being able to capture a client's desired tone. I have worked on a number of different genres ranging from murder mystery to young adult dystopia. I also have editing experience and can correct errors in a manuscript without changing the flow of the story. In my experience, the key to a successful novel is a detailed plot outline. If you need someone to guide you through this stage of writing a novel or want someone to give helpful tips on how to enhance your story, feel free to pop me a message! During my time as a writer, I've also been asked to be a beta reader. Other writers have also asked me to help write blurbs for their books and provide reviews. I've always enjoyed reading, so this type of work appeals to me. The authors were generally pleased with my feedback since it was fair and respectful. I always try to preserve the essence of the story while I'm providing notes, and my main priority is to preserve the author's unique voice. My writing is always well researched and delivered on time. The overall tone of my work is upbeat and engaging although I have worked on several serious projects. I have worked with a number of clients and always received positive feedback. I keep things professional and believe in hard work and efficiency. I pride myself on having a good work ethic. My interests include learning more about the world around me, and I engage in part-time volunteer work that brings me into contact with many interesting people. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Good, better, BEST! That's the way I've always viewed my ability to take a project and make it shine. I discovered my love and talent for writing, editing, proofreading and rewrites in high school, and in the many years since. I've worked as a journalist for an East Coast all-news radio station and as an advertising executive for an allied healthcare publication. I made extra money (to support my three now-grown kids) providing web content and copy-editing fiction and nonfiction articles and books. I received so much positive feedback that I decided to turn it into a full time career: I’ve never looked back. Writing, editing, and proofreading are true passions for me. I get real satisfaction out of completing a meticulously-researched article or taking another person's work and thoughts and bringing out their best. I've almost accidentally developed a reputation and following for the lifeline I provide for those struggling to perfect their personal statements for college and advanced degree applications, and recently for those in need of SBA social disadvantage narratives. I am professional, detail-oriented, and punctual, and I've been told that I'm easy to work with too. I look forward to working on your project!

    Since a young age, I have loved bringing stories to life. It is said that when you do what you love, you never work a day in your life. I am a firm believer in this policy. The story or article that I am writing for you is never work. The work is not something I feel like I have to do. Instead, the story or article I am writing for you is something I want to do. Throughout the last year, I have worked with over two hundred clients on fiction and nonfiction projects alike. My fiction writing specialties include: - Contemporary Fiction - Romance - Fantasy - Historical Fiction - Science Fiction Though these are the areas I prefer to write in, I am comfortable with most genres. My nonfiction writing specialties include: - Blog posts - Interest pieces - Research papers - Biographies - Memoirs When it comes to the length of the writing piece, I am comfortable with a wide range. I have worked on stories that range from less than a thousand words to stories that are over one hundred thousand words. I enjoy working with clients on the outline of the project if it is not already formed. If clients have an outline, I will work from that and continue to build upon the ideas they already have. With my writing, clients will see their stories come to life. My services are completely confidential. I will never lay any claim to the work I do for my clients.

    *TOP RATED* freelancer in 2022 and 2023 Hello! My name is Claire and I'm a British writer and English teacher with experience in writing, literature, editing and proofreading. I have an English Literature degree from a reputable university here in England, and I've been a qualified secondary school English teacher for 12 years, working with students aged 10-19. I currently work part time as a 1-1 tutor for that same age group, and during exam season, I mark GCSE English Literature papers for a well-known exam board. Though teaching is my day job, writing is one of my passions, particularly stories. In 2021, I came 2nd in the inaugural Writing Magazine chapter book prize, and also had a short story published in an anthology. In my free time, I run a blog focusing on the story aspects of books, film, TV and video games. It is a goal of mine to one day have a middle grade children's story or young adult novel published. Since joining Upwork, I have: - written a non-fiction book on how to become a teacher in the UK - completed a comparative poetry analysis - been a beta reader for a self-help book - edited 2 children's books - written a series of short stories (60 in all, of about 400 words each) with accompanying comprehension questions for children aged 9-12 - completed over 30 detailed English comprehension, spelling and punctuation test papers - ghostwritten 2 complete novels, one consisting of over 100k words - assisted in the planning of an upcoming novel My experience as an English teacher means I am well-placed to find errors in spelling, punctuation and grammar in all kinds of texts, and I can suggest edits for readability. As an avid reader, I can also spot a good story and effective use of language, structure and methods. As a freelancer, you will find that I am communicative, prompt and thorough. I will stay in touch with you to provide you with updates, and also ask questions to make sure that I am fulfilling my obligations to you. You will also find that I will use my knowledge and experience to suggest edits and changes to the work that you provide me, however, I am always mindful that what I create should be done to your standards, and to your satisfaction, and as such would never force through any of my ideas. I aim to keep my clients happy!

How to Hire Top Writers

How to hire writers

Whether it’s to maintain the company blog, write product reviews, or create an ebook—freelance writers are in high demand. So how do you find a writer? What follows are some tips on finding top writers on Upwork.

How to shortlist writers

As you’re browsing available writing 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 writer who understands your industry, so they can help you figure out how best to reach your target market.
  • Attention to detail. Writers who follow style guides, grammar, and instructions are a win.
  • 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 writer.

Before posting a job, ask yourself:

  • Do I need a specialist? Do you need a copywriter with an engineering background? A video script writer for sales landing pages with a history of success?
  • When do I need the project done?  If you have a tight deadline, a more experienced writer may be able to turn a project around faster and with fewer edits needed.
  • How much research is needed? The copywriter needs to understand the audience’s hot buttons and what they’re selling before they can write. The more information you can provide upfront (i.e., testimonials, past campaign results, buyer personas) the sooner they can start writing. And if you’re promoting an online course, for example, a good copywriter will often review the entire program before writing. Be sure to account time for that in your planning.
  • How much expertise do I need? Copy for a multimillion-dollar product launch, or perhaps to make a difficult announcement without inciting the reader, often requires higher expertise than copy for a blog post that nurtures prospects.

How to write an effective writing job post

With a clear picture of your ideal writer in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Aim to provide enough detail for a freelancer to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

An effective writing job post should include:

  • Scope of work: From press releases to ebooks 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 working with certain industries, software, or marketing channels, mention this here.
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

WRITERS FAQ

What does a writer do?

Businesses rely on writers for a wide variety of projects. For this reason, professional writers often specialize by industry or project type.

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in professional writers:

  • General writing and editing
  • Niche writing domains such as SEO, technical writing, copywriting, advertising, and email
  • Familiarity with word processing software such as Google Docs
  • Research
  • Communication

Why hire writers?

The trick to finding top writers is to identify your needs. Are you looking for an SEO writer to write search engine optimized content for your company blog? Or do you require experience creating witty posts for social media? 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 copywriter?

When deciding how much to budget, know that independent writers are businesses. As in any other business, they set their own pricing. Below are the seven most common factors that affect copywriting fees.

7 factors affecting copywriting rates

  1. Project Research: Many times, the copywriter needs background before starting the project. This may include interviewing your customers, researching the industry and your competition, reviewing past marketing campaigns, and so on. The greater the amount of research needed, the higher the project fee may be. For example, if the copywriter must develop your buyer personas or read your 400-page book before writing an email campaign to promote it, the time commitment will add up.TIP: Keep fees down by providing the copywriter with as much relevant data as possible at project start.
  2. Specialization: The more specialized and in-demand your copywriter, the more they may charge. It’s basic supply and demand. For example, if you need a direct-response copywriter with an electrical engineering background to sell your highly technical product to other engineers, then expect to pay more.
  3. Planning and strategy: For more complex projects, the copywriter may benefit from meeting with other project team members to help strategize a rollout or plan a campaign.
  4. Project type: Project fees aren’t just dependent on the amount of copy needed, fees are also affected by the project’s complexity. Writing a four-page brochure will obviously cost less than a 40-page website. But a single Pay Per Click (PPC) ad can cost as much as an email. That’s because when an ad only has 25 characters to entice a conversion (e.g. get the click), each word used often requires more thought and research.
  5. Deadline: If you need something done sooner, you may have to pay what many call a “rush fee.” Fees vary depending on the project and deadline. Also, expect to pay more if your writer has to work over the weekend or during a holiday period.
  6. Additional skills: Generally, copywriters just write the copy, without formatting past a basic MS Word or Google document. Some copywriters have other skills such as graphic design or voiceover talent. More advanced direct-response copywriters often provide marketing strategy as well. If you need the copywriter to do more, such as write and design a brochure, or to enter blog posts on WordPress, expect to pay more.
  7. Level of expertise: As in most professions, the more experience and skills needed, the higher the professional fees. Copy for a multimillion-dollar product launch often requires higher expertise than copy for a blog post that nurtures prospects.

Depending on the project type, copywriters may charge per word, hourly, or a flat project fee. Content writers usually prefer hourly or a fixed price. Experienced copywriters often prefer fixed prices for most project types. When the project’s success relies mainly on the copy, royalties may be paid in addition to a flat project fee. For example, if a credit card company mailed out 10 million sales letters to solicit new applicants, the copywriter could receive a fixed price for writing the sales letter, and royalties for every new customer the letter converted.

Copywriter vs. content writer vs. blog writer—what’s the difference?

In general, all writers are a type of content writer. Content covers online and offline assets from landing pages, whitepapers, to social media ads. The types of writers available can be as specialized as the type of content you need creating.

A copywriter differs in that they integrate psychology and sales into their writing to drive conversions such as to sign up, download, or buy something. They often work on assets designed to convert including sales landing pages, ads, email campaigns, TV, and direct mail projects.

A blog writer specializes in writing short or long articles for a specific website. The articles (blog posts) usually cover a topic related to the website. This can be anything from industry news, product information, to opinions.
