    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Portfolio: 4

    I am a professional writer and social science researcher living in New Orleans, Louisiana. I specialize in editing, proofreading, writing, and research. I have an M.A. in Anthropology from Columbia Univ., as well as a B.A. in Honors English from San Diego State Univ. I have versatile skills and interests and can cover a wide range of topics in the arts and sciences. As an anthropologist, I am well versed in cross-cultural perspectives, enabling me to write for diverse audiences. In addition, I have over ten years of experience as a freelance proofreader, editor, and tutor. On the creative side, I love to work with horror, science fiction, and fantasy, though I am certainly open to other genres. I am skilled at breaking down and paraphrasing highly technical language, which is advantageous for technical and science writing. In all areas, I have a meticulous editorial eye for grammar, spelling, formatting, and content.

    Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

    United States - Last active: 14 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 11

    I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.

    Hi, My name is Imogen and I am a freelance writer and proofreader. I'm also a novelist and an improv comedian, and have written several plays. I have experience editing and proof reading books, articles and papers for publication. I was recently employed by Michael O'Mara books for a short-term project, and when that ended, was taken on as a freelance proofreader for their ebook department. I previously worked in Media Monitoring for 6 years, sumarising complex articles for distribution to high-profile clients and working to extremely tight deadlines. I am familiar with using Biblio System, Microsoft Office, Excel, Powerpoint and Salesforce to support outcomes in publishing and commercial organisations. I am also a recent graduate from Oxford University's Creative Writing MSt, which I completed whilst working full time. I'm organised, extremely reliable and good at working under pressure. My main areas of interest are arts and popular culture, current events and the position of women in society. I worked as an actor for a number of years, and have a background in performance and literature. My personal, geeky interest is cryptozoology. My most recent published article can be found here: http://vagendamagazine.com/2014/09/why-you-shouldnt-bother-calling-yourself-ms/ I look forward to hearing from you. Best, Imogen
