    AFFABLE EXPRESSION transforms words into artful copy. Copywriting, screenwriting, and web copy are the elements I use to communicate your personal message: Writing virtually every kind of collateral in print and in the internet-sphere, it is the "evergreen" style of copy that converts readership into engagement: Eye-catching copy and web content provide a proven strategy that can amplify your business and increase its productivity. My areas of expertise include: ▪ Article writing: expression of your message, specific to your business. ▪ Blogging: versatility in posts following practical guidelines and formatting. ▪ Branding: expert attention to your identity and how to engage (and not just "talk at") your readership through your online channels. ▪ Landing Pages: responsive web pages and web copy that elicit visitor interaction with conversions. ▪ PR: generosity and the contributions you share through press release copy and brand reputation strategy. ▪ Sales Copy: relates what matters about your product(s) and service(s) to your viewership and marketing. ▪ Screenwriting: exceptional screenwriting written for entertainment and literary boutiques, with a lens on beats, dialogue, and the all-important, "subtext." ▪ Technical Writing: evergreen vision in case studies, white papers, and niche-copy for your brand. ▪ WordPress: 'noblesse oblige' in WP blogging using a blend of storytelling and web imagery that produces shareable web content. A combined fourteen years content-marketing, consulting, copywriting, and social media marketing in complement. And a second wave of word coloratura is handy when you need genre writing or fiction writing with thoughtfully devised characters and story. My virtual pen and ink are ready to help your business's muse apt, friendly, and most importantly, efficient. ~ Dante

    Communications specialist

    United Kingdom - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 23 - Portfolio: 12

    You will never get just a writing job from me. I bring a complete marketing perspective to everything I do, whether it is part of the brief or not. You don't pay any more for it - it is simply part of the way I approach projects. I have over 30 years experience in all aspects of communications from multi-million pound advertising campaigns to writing sales promotional letters and pretty much everything in between. I have been responsible for analysing markets and planning, conceiving, developing, delivering and evaluating major advertising projects and all associated work. This has often included creative input, copywriting, feature writing, market research and most aspects of production. My particular strengths are in strategic analysis and planning but I am also a strong creative thinker and writer and have written for most media including the web, TV and radio ads, magazines and leaflets and letters. I have been a technical editor and proofreader and have a good deal of experience in developing creative and editorial products. I am an author and poet in my own right and can provide samples of my work, if necessary. I am interested in any sort of communications project from specific writing assignments to full mutli-channel campaigns (though I am conscious that these are likely to be few and far between). I am available as a communications practitioner (writer), project manager or consultant and don't mind in which capacity I am asked to act. I am also willing to get involved in both small short term and longer term projects.

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 10

    Thank you for stopping by to read my resume. As my title says, I'm a writer who focuses mainly on news, opinions, and occasionally reviews centered around video games, comics, and technology. I have 3 years experience working with Wordpress. Currently I am the lead writer and editor for Kabir News. From April 2013 to present I write on a weekly/almost daily basis. As of 2014 I have provided 100% of the content for Kabir News mainly in tech, tech-business, and gaming. When writing about games and technology, I handle research, regularly check major news via Google News and news sources I follow via social media, and link back to existing articles on the site. I am also a creative writer and enjoy focusing on the epic fantasy/sword and sorcery, post apocalyptic, and sci-fi genres. I also enjoy writing and reviewing hard rock and heavy metal music. My other talents include free hand drawing and Photoshop. While I always take a client's budget into consideration, I am more flexible with my pricing if I am credited in articles I provide.
