    Writer, Proofreader, and Editor

    Australia - Last active: 3 days ago

    I live-and-breathe writing, reading, grammar, and the Internet. It's not just about work, money, and writing, however. My clients are important to me, and I will never stop, until they are satisfied with a project. Are you looking for some professional, polished writing, whether it is fiction or non-fiction? Do you need your writing fixed? My editing, copyediting, and proofreading skills are top-quality. Are you looking for some content, for a website, or for your business? Do not hesitate to contact me, as I can provide quality writing, whatever your requirements. I have been writing web-content for over 7 years; during that time, I have studied a Higher Diploma of Editing (Publishing), and a Diploma of Professional Writing. I started at the bottom of the ladder, and it has taken hard work to bring my skills to their current level.
