    I love to write nonfiction and creative fiction.

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 5

    I have been teaching high school English for 20 years. I can write about practically anything. As a high school teacher and writer, I have a solid grasp of grammar and style. I have been teaching writing, and editing student work for many years. I discovered Elance by accident, but I have found it to be great place to be able to write, meet clients, and develop business relationships to meet their needs in an online setting. It has given me a new perspective as a teacher about the importance of writing and communicating. Over the years as a teacher, I have taught practically every subject, from creative writing to American Literature to Mythology. I also advised the school yearbook for several years and my books were awarded top marks in yearbook competitions, with one of them receiving international recognition for its quality and design. I have a BA in English and a MA in Education and I have taken many Master's level courses in journalism.

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Portfolio: 3

    LONG-TERM ELANCE PROFESSIONAL – I'm a professional writer, editor, proofreader, and layout artist with 30+ years' experience. I hold two master's degrees (psychology and anthropology) and a certificate in nonfiction writing. I've been a successful freelancer for the past 11 years and have also worked for educational publishers, print shops, and daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly publications. I've written more than 150 children's books for educational publishers. I've edited a New York Times best-selling finance book, numerous books for prominent psychologists, and two books for a prominent professional coach. After taking Benchmark Education Company's copyediting test, the managing editor wrote: "You did fantastic on the test! In fact, yours was the best test I've seen in the two years I've given it." Another editor at Benchmark wrote: "You are a wonderful writer, a quick study, organized, and so on top of schedules that it is a pleasure working with you!" Service Description: I offer expert writing, copy editing, and proofreading services as well as graphic design/layout in InDesign. PLEASE NOTE: I *don't* write articles, web content, or marketing copy. WRITING: I've written more than 150 leveled children's books as well as more than one hundred reading passages for educational publishers such as Wright Group/McGraw-Hill, Benchmark Education Company, Trillium Publishing, Learning A-Z, and Evan-Moor. My strong suits include life science, earth science, geography, the human body, art, music, history, biography, and cultures around the world. I have a passion for life science topics and have a knack for rephrasing scientific content for young readers. NONFICTION COPY EDITING AND PROOFREADING: I tighten text and smooth it out, covering sentence structure and flow, voice, spelling, capitalization, punctuation, consistent verb tenses, parallel construction, correct word choices (e.g., "that" vs. "which"), and more. I can copyedit in Word or WordPress. I'm also an expert at reviewing layouts before publication. GRAPHICS: I'm a whiz at creating and proofing layouts for consistency and visual appeal. I can work in InDesign CS4 or CS5.5. Here are additional testimonials from satisfied clients: "I've worked for major New York book publishers and top-tier university presses, and Kira is one of the best copy editors I've encountered. She is an editor's dream: sharp, analytical, logical, detail-oriented, and a pleasure to work with. I rest easier knowing that she's on the case whenever she tackles one of my projects." -- John Rousselle, Editor, Reading A-Z "Best proofreader/editor I have ever worked with, and I've worked with many. Meticulous, extremely knowledgeable, and thorough -- she was born for this kind of work and does it extremely well." -- Andrew Neitlich, Founder and Director, The Center for Executive Coaching "Kira has a strong sense of language and writing style, and she has an incredible eye for even the smallest editorial details." -- Katherine Follett, Former Editor, Reading A-Z "Kira has edited for me for several years. She is thorough and quick, and her editing is the best! She takes my writing and makes it even better, offering an elegance of language as well as suggestions that are spot on. On top of all that, she is very easy to work with. I recommend her highly." -- Patrick Williams, EdD, Master Certified Coach, Founder of the Institute for Life Coach Training "The grammar gods sent you to me." -- Lawrence Ineno, MightyProse Ghostwriting & Copywriting "Amazing! Kira has an eye for detail like no other editor I've hired. I've worked with at least 7 in the last few years, and she's been the most thorough and professional one. I highly recommend her." -- Kyle Thompson, Big Fish Consulting "Kira has an incredibly sharp eye for language and layouts. She capitalizes on her extensive publishing experience and also consults appropriate reference tools to support her copyediting and proofing decisions. Kira also has an amazing ability to rephrase scientific text to suit an audience and to unravel obscure concepts for the reader in clear, concise terms." -- Douglas Tepper, Senior Editor, Science A-Z "The past year has been the most successful in our ten-year history, both from a quantity and quality perspective. Kira has been a huge part of that success. Her eye for design and her project management know-how have helped both our company and our customers enjoy a successful year. Working with Kira has allowed each of us to be more productive, while her attention to detail has cut our error rate to zero." -- Pete Dapper, Owner, Dapper & Associates "It is a pleasure to be able to count on Kira to consistently generate quality work. Her talents and dedication to her work are both exceptional, and her organizational skills are outstanding." -- Loretta King, Former Director of Advertising, Seattle Magazine
