A Diverse Writer with a Creative Mind and a Passion for Words.

Canada - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 1

I am a diverse writer with a passion for words. I pride myself on my ability to effectively communicate and I take the time to find the perfect words to convey my message clearly. I am an overly creative person with a wild imagination and a strong descriptive ability. I am currently a University student and have taken courses in media relations, psychology, sociology and writing of various forms, including writing for the web and non-fiction writing. I use the knowledge I have gained through education, as well as life, to produce writing that is unique, creative and reader-friendly. I have experience with a variety of writing forms and can produce content to suit any need. From casual blog posts or web content to in-depth articles or creative pieces, I face every challenge with an open mind. I am looking to expand my horizons and take my passion for writing to the next level. Given the opportunity I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed with the content I can produce and I am willing to work hard to prove that. I am open to any opportunities and I believe I possess a unique skillset that would be an asset to any project. My education, experiences and abilities in writing include: blog posts, article writing, broadcast/podcast writing, web writing and SEO, News/Press releases, media advisories, pitches, media kits and backgrounders, media kit fact sheets, newsletter and magazine stories, speeches, social media content, advertisements and scripts, sales letters and marketing emails, business documents (internal/external), brochures, professional resumes, synopsis writing, creative pieces (short stories, poetry, novel-length pieces, etc.) Outside of writing I also have exceptional customer service skills, strong communication skills and natural leadership abilities. I was selected to attend a leadership conference for personalized training in 2004 that provided me with many valuable tools. I have strong sales abilities, a professional attitude and an outgoing personality. I am interested in discussing positions outside writing as well and I am always up for a challenge of any kind.

Bulgaria - Tests: 4

Over the last 7 years, I have been working in an office and my daily duties included various administrative tasks, such as English-Bulgarian translation, writing of manuals and meeting minutes and regular contacts with international company partners. During that time, I had the chance not only to improve my command in English but also to develop very good administrative skills and strong work discipline. I am interested in projects requiring administrative support, translation, writing, research or data entry - all kinds of work connected with office tasks, text and language. In addition, I am keen to acquire more SEO skills, however I am still a beginner in the field.

No Pants is the New Pants

United States - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 21

I tell my clients if you want customers to look your way, you have to give them the honest-to-Pete real you. How does your product live in the world? How does it help people? Why should they believe you? What can you give them that no one else can? My advice for the adventurous: Take off the pants. Lose the pretense, the jargon and the self-aggrandizement. It is not about you. It is about what your company and your products can do for your customers. That is the story I will help you tell. For business owners not sure of what to do with the internet, digital media, mobile technology or social media, I can be their digital marketing, content marketing or e-commerce specialist. I help them figure out what draws attention from a finicky market and how to tie their marketing efforts to profitability. About my rate: While all you might think you are asking for is a 500-word blog post or a four tab website, what you don't see is the strategy, digital evaluation, SEO, research, drafting, editing, and fact-checking that I put into your project. Ask any of my clients, I don't just write. I am their business partner, if only for a while. If you're just looking for a re-write of a piece you've drafted for $10, please look elsewhere. One of the wisest things I've ever read about product marketing came from the writer of a children's book. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, creator of The Little Prince, said, "If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work ... teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea." Now, that's memorable.

Nelson Manning

Experience and Skill: I do writing and marketing.

United States - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 6

I've carved a niche for myself in writing for clients that need someone who can not only write well for your company but also not be a pain to deal with. That is a winning combination, I've found. Rather than a text-producing robot churning out bland work, I offer you a person on the other end of the line who can disagree respectfully if he thinks things are going in the wrong direction and offer alternative solutions. I'll do my best to make sure that the money you've payed to me will make you more money.

Edward Carney

Edward Carney

Freelance Writer / Editor

United States - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 3

Apart from writing ability, what I particularly offer to clients is exceptional analytical skills. My background includes rigorous training in logic and critical thinking, and these are almost compulsive habits to me. That has clear implications for most of my work: Advertising copy: I will expend a ridiculous amount of mental energy in making sure that the content I produce conveys an affective message that specifically appeals to your target audience. Editing: I will completely dissemble your writing with my eyes, and make sure that every individual component of it fits perfectly. I will carefully separate changes that are necessary and those that are mere recommendations, and I will thoroughly explain them all. Academic & Journalistic Writing: I will only be satisfied with my own treatment of a topic if I can become as well-versed in it as possible in whatever time I have for the project. Whatever the work, I take it very seriously. When you hire me you can be confident you're getting a firm and earnest commitment.
