    Free-lance Writer

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 5

    I'm a writer specializing in ghostwriting, website copy, and article writing. In the growing digital world, it takes more than interesting copy to catch the reader's attention. As a writer, I believe that magazine content, advertisement, web design, relies on visuals and bold designs. That's why in addition to being a writer, I'm a designer as well. I am a lead writer for American Dancer magazine, the official publication of USA Dance, and a former Adjunct Faculty Professor at Brigham Young University-Idaho. I minored in Chinese as an undergraduate and I am fluent in both Cantonese and Mandarin. I'm also fluent in the Adobe Design Suite--Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator--as well as the essential Microsoft Office programs. I'm interested in any project you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.

    United Kingdom - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 4

    I’m an adaptable and well-seasoned British writer, creator of compelling online content. My diligent research skills allow me to understand and connect with readers, converting them into either obsessed followers or happy buyers. HIGHLY PROFESSIONAL SERVICES Completing tasks becomes a breeze when you’re dealing with another hard working professional. Your work will always be delivered promptly within our agreed deadline. In fact, 9 out of 10 times it will even arrive in your mailbox earlier than expected. Having someone you can depend on to consistently hit above the mark will allow your business to continue operating like clockwork. OUTSTANDING QUALITY CONTROL It can sometimes become a worry whether a new writer can truly deliver all the wonderful work they have promised you. There is nothing worse than receiving poor quality content or writing that doesn’t fare well through Copyscape. From working on both sides of the fence I have come to understand these annoyances all too well. Content from me will always be original and freshly squeezed just for you. All work passes through rigorous grammar and spelling checks before it can be cleared for dispatch. EASY COMMUNICATION Clear two-way communication is essential for keeping stress levels to a minimum. The possibility of being left high and dry as a deadline draws closer can be a rather unsettling feeling. However, this can be nullified by working with someone constantly connected and responsive. For those larger projects brief progress reports can offer reassurance that everything is progressing smoothly. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED If my work does not initially land on target I will endeavour to tweak it until your completely happy, free of charge. Alternatively a 100% money back guarantee is available you if you so wish. I maintain a friendly, easy to work attitude that I hope will cultivate your peace of mind. YOUR NEXT STEPS Getting in contact with me is a snap, I will even vow to get a message back to you within 24 hours. Should you prefer a face-to-face chat first then we can certainly schedule a Skype call. Ultimately you should hire me as an expert writer for your next online business venture.
