    My dealing is with words.

    India - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2

    If you need anything to be written, or to be edited, you've come to the right person. I have an experience of almost two years working with a leading online magazine as an editor, and have written over 75 articles, and edited over 150 in that period. I have also briefly worked with an advertising company. If you need anything written - irrespective of its length - you can rest assured that I will do the job, and do it well. When it comes to editing and proofreading, it is more of a passion to me than work. Over the two years that I have professionally edited articles, I have learnt a tremendous lot about what works, and what doesn't. It is something that I do with complete devotion, ensuring therefore that the finished work is impeccable, and this is exactly what I bring to my clients' jobs. It is my strong belief that the client deserves the very best, and, if you hire me, the best is what you will get.
