    Writer and editor

    United States - Last active: 20 hours ago - Portfolio: 4

    Versatile writer and editor. Writing is my first love and something I have a natural aptitude for, though I am always working on improving my craft and honing my skills. I truly enjoy helping people find the best way to tell their stories, whether it's as a ghostwriter or an editor. My ghostwriting projects have included novels, short story collections, book-length nonfiction, articles, and educational reading passages. I love the challenge of taking someone else's ideas and crafting them into a compelling and readable narrative. I am firmly committed to providing affordable and quality editing services. Writing a book is such a big achievement, yet for many people (myself included!) it is only the beginning on the road to publication. It is often difficult to clearly "see" your own work after a while, which is when the help of a seasoned editor will be indispensable. I've done everything from deep line editing to proofreading and am a voracious reader, an intuitive editor, and a meticulous proofreader. I believe everyone should have the opportunity to put their best work out there.

    Professional writer, copywriter and journalist

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago

    After years as both a dedicated journalist and touring comedian, I have developed an effective style blending humor with substance. Knowing how to make sentences flow and words move across the page can be a powerful skill. It's a crucial element to successfully interacting with your readership, no matter the platform. In the past my work has focused a good deal on media culture, from film reviews and award shows to even celebrity trial coverage. For five years I penned a Friday column for the Charlotte Observer's entertainment fold-in. simultaneously serving as film critic for Grit Magazine. I also spent two years developing an education curriculum for the Charlotte/Mecklenburg School System's eighth-grade program. I have extensive research experience from my newspaper years, which helped me develop the ability to quickly absorb and understand subjects otherwise foreign to me. ____ I believe all writing should have a natural cadence which coaxes the reader further in. Finding the right balance of information, tone, even flowery expression can be vital to keeping your readers' focus. This can still be accomplished while fully utilizing marketing and SEO techniques, be it for a press release, blog posting or standard reporting. My work can be quick, light and pithy - or largely technical and thick in nature. Whatever the project, it will be streamlined to your specifications and directly targeted to your core audience. Thanks for your consideration.
