    Copywriter & Editor with Marketing Experience

    United States - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 4

    Thank you for your interest! I am out on maternity leave until at least the first week in May and will not review any new offers until after that time. Sorry for any inconvenience. Need compelling copy? Know what you want to tell people, but have no idea how to do it? Let me help! I have spent over a decade working one-on-one with individuals and companies with the goal of creating and refining written works of all lengths and for a variety of media. My success lies in my intimate knowledge of both the English language and its use in marketing and communication. I believe that careful thought should go into all written work and have perfected the ability to help make the ideas of others into eloquent prose. I have advanced research skills that allow me to not only write about, but get to know your industry or company as if I had been there from Day 1. My goal is to work both collaboratively with my clients as well as independently of them in order to meet the needs and demands of writing and editing projects for their company.

    PhD qualified researcher and writer

    United Kingdom - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 8

    I am a PhD qualified researcher, writer, and co-founder of an international award-winning social enterprise, Unseen Tours in London. I provide high quality online research services, expert advice in constructing methodologies for social research projects, assistance with academic, social campaign or blog content, and a skilled hand with proofreading and editing. Having worked for a number of research centres, I can also offer an efficient grant and tender writing service. An academically trained researcher with an established track record of researching and writing published reports and articles for diverse audiences, I can gather, analyse and synthesise information in an efficient and comprehensive way. This includes extensive experience analysing qualitative data using Atlas and NVivo. In addition, I can help you if you are campaigning on a particular social or environmental issue. Having a parallel life as a social entrepreneur - check out Unseen Tours in London, Joint Overall Winner of the Virgin Responsible Tourism Awards in 2011 - has meant that I straddle both the worlds of academic research and practice 'on the ground'. This means that I can cut through the jargon and give your campaign the weight it needs while keeping your message sharp and clear.
