    Editor, Proofreader, Academic Quality Controller, and Researcher

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 13

    Although an ordained minister, I also have a passion for editing and proofreading. Freelancing has given me the opportunity to use these skills, and it also led to work in the field of academic quality control. I have earned my professional Copyediting Certificate as well as my Research Methods Certificate. Of the books I have edited, three have gone on to be published. My ministerial experience (backed by a Master of Theological Studies) lends itself to research, reading, and creative writing. I also spent much of my time editing and proofreading, for myself and colleagues. While theology is my strongest passion, I also enjoy copyediting and proofreading in various genres: academic essays, dissertations, business proposals/plans/correspondence, biographies, resumes, web text, online courses, non-fiction, poetry, and fiction. Additional skills include writing curriculum, active listening, counseling, computer use (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, email, Facebook, and ACS), management of program staff, budget development and accountability, and congregational leadership. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Business & Commerce - with a major in accounting - that I put to use in my 10+ years in banking (before entering ministry). My various duties over the years included: teller, proof operator, loan secretary, loan processor, administrative assistant/multinational banking, customer service manager/multinational banking, and manager of 30+ people in loan operations and collateral vault.

    Creative writer and copywriter

    South Africa - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

    I've been writing for over five years, both as a personal means of expression, as well as contracted freelance work. Over that time, I have completed numerous short stories, penned articles for social media and satire blogs and websites, and have written and edited chapters for various authors. Within fiction, which is my main area of focus, I write intense, emotional scenes to great effect, as well as dark humour. I write literary fiction and sci-fi, for the most part, but I also have experience in romance and erotica. Other creative work has included satire, emotional wellness blogging, social media how-to columns, and well-researched, informative articles on a vast range of topics. I am fortunate to have the opportunity this year to study an honours degree in Creative Writing through Wits University, during which I hope to perfect my writing style, as well as gain experience from interaction with and feedback from experts in the South African writing community. In addition to my own creative work, I am skilled at recognising and differentiating good writing from bad. I will utilise these skills to edit, critique and provide expert recommendations to ensure your work meets the high standards required for unqualified success. Within the corporate field, I write engaging copy for businesses and entrepreneurs, which provides information and guidelines, while maintaining the reader's interest and keeping them entertained when appropriate. Over the course of an honors degree in Psychology - including experience with group therapy and trauma counselling - I have gained great insight and perspective into human nature. This is a major strength in my writing. I write realistic characters and bring clarity and insight into stories, whether fiction or non-fiction. Overall, I'll produce work which is of a very high quality, in terms of writing style and content. Thanks for reading!

    Virtual Assistant and Online Services Specialist

    Philippines - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 11 - Portfolio: 1

    I have about five years of Customer Service experience – about two years as an Inbound Calls representative and about three years as a Back of House and Online Services Specialist. I was a Universal Agent assisting customers on their concerns about their mobile, landline, broadband and digital tv services. This includes billing explanations, credit processing, move of house and account name change requests, technician callouts, minor troubleshooting and a lot more. I also did backend duties and coordinated with the onshore team for complaint resolutions and old plan updates. I make sure the customers’ concerns were resolved at the soonest time possible. I also have experiences in academic writing, web research and also in administrative tasks. I have received several awards and recognitions as a Customer Service Specialist as proofs of my hardwork and dedication. Here at Upwork, I am hoping to be able to continually practice the skills I’ve acquired while working in the BPO industry and if possible, also do some writing and research gigs. I am very much looking forward to those opportunities. I am also open in learning new things and improving my skills to give better service and quality outputs to my clients.

    Creative Writer, Editor, Proofreader

    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 7

    As an author myself, I know the value of a good editor; one who will be able to catch every misused word, missed punctuation or letter, unclear message, and inconsistency. The books on my shelves have notes scribbled throughout, little crossed-out pencil scratchings over words that just don't hit home, and margin-notes about missed opportunities for more powerful options. I'm here to offer this service to you BEFORE you send your precious work off into the world of publication. Everybody misses things when they're writing their own work, without fail there is something worth changing, and I'll find it for you and offer suggestions for improvement where needed. Currently, I am a Managing Editor of the Greenleaf Review Literary Magazine, where I run a team of editors to put out a magazine of student submissions on a tight deadline. Our team gets maybe three months with the materials before a final magazine is produced and I have the responsibility to make sure we all meet deadlines along the way and handle submissions in a professional and respectful manner. We have a short editing session each year and the rest of the time I'm on here looking for more projects to fill my time. I hope you'll consider letting me be a part of your process towards publication.

    Bangladesh - Last active: 8 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 16

    Writing is not only a profession to me. It's a passion. Writing for school magazines was one of the most amazing memories. My writing career started just after high school as a Feature Writer in a Weekly Magazine named ‘The Joven’; where I learned the critical and technical area of writing. In the meantime, I worked with different research organizations notably ‘Human Development Research Centre’ and ‘Policy Research Institute’ which polished my research and writing ability. After graduation, with all the previous experiences, I joined in ‘The New Age’, a national news agency. I started “New Age” career as a reporter and now I’m an editorial article writer. As a freelance article writer and researcher at Upwork, I’ve worked with different clients in various writing and research projects. I know the value of commitment and deadline. By maintaining a great working environment with the clients, I’ve successfully done all the jobs so far. Honesty, authenticity, relevance, high cadre work and timely dispensation are my moral code at work.
