    Freelance writer and editor

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 6

    Someone wise once said, "a writer writes," and while that's true, a good writer can thoughtfully and accurately convey not only his own ideas, but the ideas of others as well. Over the last eight years, I have written and edited material for a number of businesses and individual clients alike, from start-ups to educational developers to budding novelists and screenwriters. My strength as a freelancer stems from my accessibility, accuracy, and ability to understand each client’s individual needs. As a lifelong student of literature in all forms, I specialize in ghostwriting, editing, proofreading, and narrative form analyses. I have both independent and corporate experience in proofreading, copyediting, copywriting, narrative writing and editing, transcription, and more.
