Top-Rated Writing & Editing: From My Hometown to the World
There are so many ideas and stories in my freelance work, that's why I really enjoy editing and writing. I really like the idea of expanding my client-base too. I live in a somewhat isolated town in Northern Ontario, and it just thrills me to think of my words traveling the world, helping people.
I regularly write and edit for print publications like Health & Life Magazine in Qatar, and I am the executive editor of Worldclass Magazine in San Diego, USA. I also regularly contribute to various business blogs in different industries. Promoting specific services and building your brand is one of my specialties, with my SEO and marketing experience, working for digital asset management and media clients, like Widen in Wisconsin, USA and IronSource in Israel, and I am flexible too. Just look at the incredible variety posted on my professional blog and writing portfolio: https://nipigonfreelancer.wordpress.com
- As a Canadian, I am an ideal choice for your writing and editing projects, since I am a native English speaker and an expert in both UK and US style English, as well as most common style guides.
- As a high school teacher, I taught English, Technical and Creative Writing, as well as Media Studies.
- I obtained concrete, in-the-field experience in the publishing industry, as a writer and editor for my local newspaper.
- I earned a top rating in the Upwork system in only my first four months, placing me in the top 10 percent of the millions of freelancers here, and obviously not all of them are writers and editors! I'm also in the top-ten percent for creative nonfiction, social media marketing and resume writing, as well as the top-twenty for online article writing.
It's easy to find rock-bottom prices, but the quality and work experience is not the same, and I specialize in fixed-price work. My success rate runs very high and my enthusiastic customer feedback will tell you exactly what any extra cost will buy you, in terms of professionalism, quality and overall satisfaction! Since I am both an accomplished writer and editor, any project I'm involved with is always ready to publish and pitched appropriately for its audience. Please add the 10 percent Upwork fee on top of my listed price.
FIXED PRICE LIST
Original work is $0.05 per word or $50 per article, and that might include independent research from up to three different sources and\or looking for a Creative Commons image. My education, background and experience allow me to work in a traditional news-media style or to create something that is more blog friendly. I can propose my own topics or work from an outline, recording, links or interview. I also make myself available for any revisions as soon as possible, if clients want to add material or change little things, even on weekends.
Professional proofreading is $3 per page, for at least 12 pages. Detailed, line-by-line proofreading and copy-editing is $0.02 per word, and there is a $15 minimum for short pieces. Two publications hired me to produce their style and grammar guides, based on Associated Press guidelines. I can help with organization and structure, or creatively fill in the gaps with my own writing, and I work regularly with writers of every level, from professional to English as a second language.
