    Germany - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 2

    I am a historian and writer, with experience in editing and writing magazine articles as well as academic papers. My work with one of the biggest German student newspapers included writing feature articles, reviews and comments as well as more menial tasks such as drawing up transcriptions of interviews. My focus as a historian lies in the Early Modern Period, especially colonial studies. As a literary scholar my projects revolved around medieval literature, education novels and young adult fiction. In my free time I like to write short stories and create dry-point etchings. I am used to working with LaTeX and diverse variants of office, as well as photoshop.

    Thesis editing & advising * academic editor * fiction editor

    United States - Tests: 7

    My craft is to transform your solid ideas into prose that is both clear and beautiful. I begin with the big picture by examining the flow of information. Once the structure of the document is in place without any holes or distractions, I then zoom in for a closer look at the formatting. Are the most important points also the most visible? Should some of these points be formatted to ensure they catch your readers' attention? Finally, I go on the hunt for any of the spelling and grammar errors that I couldn’t resist correcting along the way. Academics: Let me take care of the APA style formatting for you! A bit about my experience: * I am a learning scientist (PhD in cognitive and experimental psychology) who has written federal grants both for my own research as well as for hire. * I am a daring startup entrepreneur who has worn many hats, including authoring and editing blog posts and press releases. * And, I am an avid reader with remarkably creative friends, for whom I have edited dozens of short stories and even a few books. I make a great partner for people who have a mission and a message. Let’s work together so that you can effectively reach your audience - whether grant reviewers, clients, or fans of your fiction - with prose that dazzles! PS -- for potential transcription clients, I haven't forgotten you! For my MS research, I transcribed 160 audio interviews for qualitative analysis. My typing is both fast (~100 wpm) and accurate.
