I am available to build your creative content, write your business letter, flesh-out existing copy, proofread, or manage teams of writers. Most recently I've added posting book and product reviews for Amazon.
For more than a quarter century, I have rolled up my sleeves to deliver quality copy to readers and publishers across different platforms including newsprint, magazines, web-based clients, students, and others. As managing editor and general assignment reporter for various publishing companies including Gannett, Pulitzer, Belo, and Lee Enterprises, I have a proven record of accomplishment that includes teamwork and team management. I have produced interesting copy on a host of subjects from education at the local level; crime; government affairs; courts, lifestyle features, recipes, and technology. I have mentored younger writers and acted as a writing coach and project manager for new and experienced writers.
I have authored a short history book using antique photographs for Arcadia Publishing and variously edited and ghostwritten five books since 2011.
Most recently, I held a nine-month-long position for an Internet-based enterprise providing more than 100 edited articles of content for Internet users each week by managing teams of writers. I have also used a variety of programs and templates to input content for a variety of Internet-based publishers. New applications are quickly learned.
Best of all, I have been a consistent, creative solver of problems. If you have an idea you would like to develop; I am your editor, writer, or content manager. Drop me a line and I will be happy to tell you how I can help you make your point on any virtually any subject or complete you project cost effectively and on time. I am also available on Skype as John Waters Jr.
Please note that I no longer accept invitations to write for business or finance readers, SEO-focused work, or self-help-related topic ghostwriting.
