F. Joseph W.

Writer and Journalist

United States - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 6

There's a lot of information out there. Impossible to measure in size, one demoralizing certainty about the wealth of information on the internet is that it keeps on growing every day. The more important certainty, however, is that there's some information out there that is absolutely essential to you. Collecting, evaluating and synthesizing information into useful writing take time and skill. As a graduate student in the field of History, I have the professional expertise to comb through the endless amounts of sources to find exactly what you need. Whether it's competitive intelligence that will help you make a business decision, cultural analysis of a target audience, an annotated bibliography for a research project, or just a plain old interesting piece of content-- I have you covered. The days of black-hat SEO are over. As search engine algorithms continue to evolve, old-school search engine optimization juking just doesn't work any more. Search engines value original, relevant, quality content written by credible authors. Social shares also play a large role in how pages are valued. With the entire wealth of information on the internet at my fingertips, you can be sure my writing and research is entirely unique and fresh. I write simply. I write clearly. I do not call attention to my writing. I call attention to your ideas. And most importantly, I research and write appealing, interesting content. Many samples available upon request.

I ensure: ✔ Accuracy, clarity and attention to detail ✔ Prompt and straightforward communication ✔ Quick turnaround without compromising on quality I'm available for both short and long-term projects, so please feel free to contact me for any queries. Looking forward to working with you! _______________________________________________________________________________ BACKGROUND, EDUCATION & PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE I am a verified native English speaker; I grew up with U.S. English and was educated in UK English, so I can easily work with both. I hold a Bachelor of Journalism from Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa: ✪ Specializations – Writing & Editing and New Media ✪ Major – English Literature ✪ Intensive – Web Design & Development ✪ Other courses – French 1&2, Modern Fiction, and English Language & Linguistics I have worked with a variety of people and enterprises from all over the globe: independent experts and professionals, startups and small businesses, private consultancies, multinational corporations and organizations such as the United Nations, as well as several NGOs & NPOs. _______________________________________________________________________________ SERVICE DESCRIPTION - Proofreading & Editing - You may have a great story or great content, but no one will notice if your writing is riddled with mistakes. Yet finding and fixing these mistakes is often tedious, time-consuming and difficult, because it's hard to be objective about your own text. This is where I come in; no matter what I provide—proofreading, copy-editing or line editing—I guarantee error-free work. Not only do I correct spelling and grammar, but I also ensure consistency in style, tone and structure. Additionally, if needed or required by you, I can rewrite the text. Each punctuation mark, word, sentence and paragraph is carefully reviewed for readability, and I always keep the target audience in mind while doing this. My love for editing started from a very young age: in primary school I would even proofread my friends' homework before they submitted it! This carried on through to university, where I specialized in Writing & Editing and where—for 4 years—I was part of an independent student newspaper's editing team. Since then, I've collaborated with numerous authors, bloggers and other professionals to make certain that their writings are flawless. The variety of projects I've worked on include: • Government bids, grants proposals and corporate documents • Academic papers (essays, dissertations, theses) • Scientific articles and technical reports • Ebooks and printed books • Websites, blog posts and marketing materials • Business plans and presentations • CVs, resumes, cover letters and personal statements • Catalogues, flyers, emails and letters So if you need an expert proofreader and editor who's committed to making sure that your writing is as perfect as possible, feel free to get in touch with me! - Writing - Being an avid reader and writer is an essential part of who I am, so I'm delighted to have turned this into a professional service. My written work has been published on global platforms such as a United Nations blog, United Press International, Deutsche Welle and Down To Earth magazine, as well as several national publications. I can research and write on a variety of subjects, for both online and offline platforms: articles, blog posts, social media posts, emails, letters, marketing materials, etc. Topics that I am particularly familiar with include the following: the environment and sustainability, wildlife protection, technology, hard news including crime stories, arts & culture pieces, and profiles and features. Since I am also a qualified journalist and editor, you can rest assured that my written work will be factually correct and error-free. I usually don’t offer ghostwriting services, and would request my byline for work such as news reports. My writing rates depend the type of content and amount of research required.

Mark Klempner Agency Contractor

Writer's Writer for Hire

United States - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 12

I can sometimes do in 15 minutes what others do in an hour. I recently raised my rates because my last client paid me 40% above what I billed him! I have a pretty sharp eye, for example, I often notice mistakes in mainstream books. Some clients call me "the best," but I simply think of myself as a writer's writer. What I like most is writing or editing fiction or nonfiction writing.

Melissa Johnson

Copy editor and copy writer

United States - Tests: 13 - Portfolio: 2

Since 2010, I have worked as a freelance editor, writer, and marketer with a focus on one thing: Outstanding content. My work in the digital space includes large-scale content projects for eBay and other companies, but I have come to find that my passion lies with small businesses, and I've been fortunate enough to carve out a niche for myself doing just that: helping small business owners and entrepreneurs with all of their content needs. Whether I'm writing or editing, my goal is the same: deliver clear, concise, appealing copy for my clients. I have experience in an eclectic array of fields—I've written and edited corporate and executive biographies, e-commerce product descriptions, and articles for topics such as health, food, fashion, home and garden, insurance, financial planning, and more. Lately, I've focused my skills on website copy, blogging, and marketing materials, as well as SEO, particularly in relation to e-commerce, entrepreneurship, and technology. With each project, I meticulously research the topic and provide original, worthwhile content that goes above and beyond the generic. One of my biggest strengths is taking complex material and breaking it down into an easily accessible discussion. I always strive to get into the mindset of the target audience, so that I can answer their questions and ease their concerns. Over the years, I've developed multiple style guides and I love helping to shape a company's voice. My command of grammar is impeccable, and even though I am a native U.S. English speaker, I have also done work for Australian and U.K.-based content. I also have experience using social media platforms for businesses, including Facebook and HootSuite. My skillsets also include SEO and basic HTML. If you're looking for an enthusiastic blogger or copywriter who learns quickly and embraces new challenges and opportunities, I'd love to hear from you!
