I am not only an experienced and skilled writer, but also an editor with great organizational and analytical abilities who can meet deadlines and challenges with creativity and resourcefulness. I am seeking a variety of freelance writing and editing work to continue to expand my portfolio.
I ensure delivery of top-notch content in areas such as blog articles, business writing, news articles, press releases, website content, correspondence, editing projects, and more.
Below is a brief summary of my qualifications:
• I have spent more than 14 years honing my writing and editorial skills:
I started out as a newspaper journalist. After earning a Master’s Degree, I took a position planning conference content for high-level university executives, during which time I gained experience in marketing writing. Later, I served as a senior editor over multiple monthly trade newsletters on regulatory compliance topics.
• I am a self-starter:
I launched a freelance writing business to serve the communications needs of a range of companies, which includes writing web content, editing articles, producing press releases, managing media contacts, and leveraging social media for exposure. My clients include Gale Custom Content/Cengage Learning, Gregg Albracht Photography, and GreenPea Baby Boutique.
• I am a highly organized and resourceful editorial project manager with strong technical skills:
In my editorial roles, I am the person everyone relies on to target messaging, edit and refine content, and review the final product. I also am highly skilled at using Wordpress and SEO strategies and have experience with Quark, HTML and website content management.
