    Professional Writer and Editor, degree in English and Creative Writing

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

    I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Art in English and Creative Writing. In the years since graduating from college I have held positions as an Editor in Chief, Administrative Assistant, Chief Blogger, and various other positions wich involved a great deal of professional writing. I believe my writing ability is what sets me apart from other freelancers on the site. I am also adept at administrative tasks such as data entry, creating schedules, communicating with clients, and other organizational duties. Some of my skills include typing a clean 90 WPM, basic HTML knowledge, a strong proficiency in all Word software, professional editing, writing, administrative tasks, and having 11 years of professional experience in these fields. As you can also see from my tests I placed 1st out of 400k+ test takers on the US Spelling Test. Aside from the professional description above I am absolutely in love with writing and words. I've always been told I have a knack for writing the perfect description that people never knew they wanted. Since I was young I devoured books like The Hobbit and a lot of children's books. I decided after college I wanted to devote myself to actually doing what I went to college for. And living in a small town doesn't lend well for writing outside of your home. So I decided the best step to take was to become a freelancer and help people all over the world with their writing needs. I've written everything from stories about video games to a memorial for a loved one. I hope by reading this you can see just how much I love to write. If you're looking for someone who is truly passionate about reading, writing, and language in general, I hope you contact me and let me assist you with the perfect phrase. - Ashley
