    Ghostwriting and Editing

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Portfolio: 6

    Besides ghostwriting nonfiction, business reports, healthcare articles, and web-content with SEO keywords, I have edited and formatted academic manuscripts and dissertations for 20+ years. I have also edited fiction, and self-published e-books. My experience in interpreting publisher requirements has been invaluable to academic researchers in the publication of their journal articles and textbooks. I hold a Masters in Public Health with a strong medical/scientific terminology background. Your written material deserves my high-level input and meticulous attention. From government to foundation grants (and blog-posts to manuscripts), I can provide the writing or editing you need to polish your work.

    United States - Last active: 6 days ago - Portfolio: 1

    Hello, I know writing! Or this would not be my ninth year at a state university writing center teaching/tutoring from undergrad to the doctoral level in 50 different majors. From my own writing service apart from elance where I have six years of experience crafting resumes for results, a few testimonials follow: A direct quote from a client's husband who hires and fires at a high level position. After seeing the resume I wrote for her, he wrote her an email saying, " That's pretty impressive. I think we should do that for both boys." -Keith D. And, yes, if you are curious, both sons are pleased with the resumes I wrote for them. Another quote: This time from a parent who contacted me for his soon-to- graduate son: "Wow, cover letter blew us away!!! Nice job!! ... ...Nice work on the Resume also. We are very impressed" -Brian V. Another testimony: "Hello, I just wanted to thank you for all your help. I got the job and start on Monday. Thanks again." Tim F.

    Editing, Proofreading, and Critiquing

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago

    I have a B.A. in English and History from Flagler College. I was a part of Sigma Tau Delta, the English Honors Society, and a peer tutor for three semesters. I have presented one of my papers, "Evolution and Revolution: The Metamorphosis of the Gothic Heroine from Mysteries of Udolpho to Buffy the Vampire Slayer," at an international academic conference and am developing that paper into something publishable. I have also worked in the retail cosmetic industry for eight years so I know a thing to two about delivering outstanding results and working under pressure. I am a careful and thorough proofreader, a compassionate devil's advocate, and I love encouraging others in their ability to write. I can do a quick glance to make sure everything's in place, give you ideas to explore, or I can go through with a fine-toothed comb. Whatever your needs are, I am flexible, and am more than willing to work with you to get the job done.
