    Clutter-breaker extraordinaire.

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 11

    You want to break through the clutter. I want to deliver content that does. Simple. Creative content and sales-driven messages are my fortes. I have developed marketing communications materials such as brochures, sales letters, press releases, product descriptions, TVC and RDC scripts, advertising copy and packaging copy for numerous successful brands. I like to think of myself as a versatile writer, and can tweak my style according to the intended audience, platform and message content. I have written and published hundreds of articles online, and my research skills are legendary. I think typos are the scourge of the earth, and my attention to detail borders on the perverse!

    Aspiring Word-Weaver with a Bachelor's Degree in Creative Writing

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 13

    The Short Story: I am looking for writing and voice work. I am educated in creative writing and willing to work with different genres/types. As a flight attendant, I use my voice a lot and would love to work with you on voice acting. I have a good microphone and experience using Audacity. The Long Story: I'm an aspiring writer based in Maryland when I'm not busy soaring through the skies with my day job as a flight attendant. I graduated in May of 2011 with a B.A. of English with a focus in Creative Writing from California University of Pennsylvania. While I am open to accepting almost any kind of work, I have the most experience in creative fiction writing and planning, writing dialogue, script writing for plays (and am currently working on learning script writing for television and film), and video game writing. I have some experience writing speeches (from participating in Forensics/Debate Club in high school as well as working as a Representative to the Athens Area School Board). I have limited public relations experience and am interested in being a copywriter as well. As far as voice work goes, again I lack portfolio experience, but I use my voice very regularly during my day job as a flight attendant. I am often told how clear and understandable my voice is, and I would love to turn that into a second job as a voice actor. Whether you need voice overs and narrations or the voice for a character from a game, I am willing to lend my talents to you! I joined oDesk in hopes of finally getting my of feet in the door of the writing and publishing world. My goal is to build a portfolio and further my abilities and techniques in different genres and kinds of writing. I see this as the first step to possibly returning to grad school. Since I do not have much in the way of a portfolio at this time, I will be more than happy to do sample projects to show my abilities to prospective employers. I have a very flexible thanks to my day job and will have absolutely no trouble meeting deadlines. I am always open to constructive criticism with my work and look forward to building professional connections for life. My rates are negotiable, too.
