    United Kingdom - Last active: 23 hours ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 3

    Although relatively new to the world of freelance writing, I have successfully completed several jobs on Elance with excellent feedback. I have a Diploma in Sustainable Horticulture and would particularly welcome the opportunity to write about health, nutrition and environmental issues. As an English Literature graduate (MA Hons Edinburgh University) I also have a strong interest in creative writing and can provide a mentor/editing/ghostwriting role to help you with your novel or short stories. Where research is necessary, I will do this thoroughly so that an authentic 'voice' can shape the material into original and engaging work. I can offer you a written product that is highly polished in terms of spelling, grammar and editing.

    Writer and editor

    United States - Last active: 23 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.

    United States - Last active: 23 hours ago - Portfolio: 7

    An esteemed author once wrote, "Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass." That is a guiding principle for me. Whether I am writing or editing, I seek to paint words with vivid brushstrokes, tapping into ideas through images; feelings through sensations; facts through well-mined research. Once I start a project, my focus goes to striking interesting notes of expression within a given equation. Website: www.limilines.com

    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.

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 5

    I have been teaching high school English for 20 years. I can write about practically anything. As a high school teacher and writer, I have a solid grasp of grammar and style. I have been teaching writing, and editing student work for many years. I discovered Elance by accident, but I have found it to be great place to be able to write, meet clients, and develop business relationships to meet their needs in an online setting. It has given me a new perspective as a teacher about the importance of writing and communicating. Over the years as a teacher, I have taught practically every subject, from creative writing to American Literature to Mythology. I also advised the school yearbook for several years and my books were awarded top marks in yearbook competitions, with one of them receiving international recognition for its quality and design. I have a BA in English and a MA in Education and I have taken many Master's level courses in journalism.
