They have the ability to soothe, hypnotize, agitate, or energize. They are a weapon to be used with care and precision, requiring mastery of both pace and tone. Because of my experiences in the film industry, both with screenwriting and physical production, as well as having nearly 8 years of experience in the field of copywriting, I have become accustomed to free flowing creative interaction, and concise and efficient communication. I have also come to appreciate the necessity for candor, criticism, and honesty when deadlines and budgets simply cannot be compromised. Because businesses and sales are moving more and more away from handshaking and into satellite negotiations, companies, perhaps more than ever, need writers who can make connections, evoke emotion, and incite action through the power of the written word. People see too much "advertising," and will not give you long to excite them, which is why good copywriters are direct, persuasive and efficient. The copywriter is the gateway to your potential customers. But today's copywriter must be more than that. They must be part psychologist, part public relations. They have to be able to translate complex thoughts and business jargon into relatable text any layman can grasp. They need to be teachers, and sellers, and friends to your client base. These necessary elements that a copywriter must possess are my strengths. I spent nearly 15 years in the film industry, which taught me politics and persuasion. I'm a trained life coach, which means I know how to read and inspire people. I have contracted and currently contract for companies like Warner Bros., Knot Standard, Cheap Caribbean, American Express, IHG, Travel + Leisure, MapQuest, Ariba and SAP, which means I'm very experienced in high-level marketing and ad copy. I was a full time screenwriter for more than ten years, which means I know how to produce dynamic elements with pace, rhythm and punch. I have written for film, television commercials/one hour dramas, and sitcoms. I have penned one sheets, taglines, synopses, pitches, professional bios, web content, proposals, press releases, SEO laden content, Meta Descriptions and Title Tags, marketing letters, business proposals, radio spots, game reviews, film reviews, :30 second television ads, and feature articles. I have been published many times online and in print and recently did some freelance work for Groupon. I believe I can offer you an excellent resource for fresh new material given the opportunity to do so. If you have a dropbox account, I have an online digital portfolio that is quite hefty. Please let me know and I’ll send you an invite, or be happy to mail you a hard copy of my portfolio at your request. I also have an extensive portfolio and resume on oDesk. I thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Christopher Kusiak CLK Industries

Jacqueline Windh

Professional ghostwriting, creative writing and technical writing

Canada - Portfolio: 4

Best-selling author, established ghostwriter (non-fiction books and blogging in my clients' names) and successful internationally published freelancer since 2000. I'm a full-time working writer, not a "hobby writer" or someone submitting low bids on projects hoping to gain experience. If you would like your writing project done right, first time around - no time-consuming and costly fact-checking or revising or other fixing-up of errors - then you have come to the right person. I will not likely be your cheapest bid... but I bring to your project the expertise of an experienced professional. My specialty is in ghostwriting research-based non-fiction books that will be published in the names of my clients. I have both a PhD in the sciences and an MFA in Creative Writing. You can trust that I will get the facts right, and write your book in a way that is both accessible and engaging to your audience. No mistakes. The main subject areas that I have researched and written for my clients (so far) relate to finance and business (marketing, investing, stock market, retirement, real estate, debt, foreclosure, bankruptcy), health (diet, nutrition, exercise, running, chronic disease, obesity, disease risk factors), and biography. With my strong research background (along with a bit of background info from you about what you want your book to be) I can research and write about any non-fiction topic within the fields of finance, business, health, and the sciences. The combination of my creative writing skills (Iam an award-winning fiction writer) and my research skills also makes me a powerful writer of biography/autobiography. I work both independently and through Elance/Upwork, so my profile here only shows part of my work history. Beyond my ghostwriting projects, I am author of four published books of my own (one of which is a best-seller). My feature articles have been published in magazines around the world, and in newspapers ranging from The Vancouver Sun (Canada) to The Guardian (UK). Unlike many so-called "writers" bidding for jobs, I have seen numerous book projects right through from the ideas stage to their successful publication (four of my own, as well as numerous published in my clients' names). Writing (both freelance and contract) has been my sole and full-time occupation since 2000, and I have numerous repeat clients. If you are looking for quality, and getting things right first time around, please be in touch. My regular hourly rate is $50 for small projects, but I am open to dicussing terms for larger or long-term projects.
