Writer Editor Proofreader

United States - Tests: 9

I love writing, and editing in English is second nature. I'm looking for opportunities to write, edit, proof, and generally perfect your documents or communications. Proper grammar and spelling are keys to my writing success. If you are not a native speaker of American English, I can help you sound like one. Three specialties of mine are 1) making your documents objective by removing subjective or first person terminology, 2) ghost writing to make your communication sound just like you, and 3) assuring your communication is clearly understood by your target audience(s). If you need a writer for internal items like policies and procedures, business and strategic plans, training curricula, and intranet content, I can help! I would also like to work for you if you need a writer for customer facing documents like marketing pieces, business correspondence / email, and presentations or web content. In addition, I can write, edit or correct dialogue so that your speeches, advertisements or scripts sound natural and confident. Give me a try! I look forward to easing your mind about what you say.

Joshua I.

Professional Freelance Writer

Philippines - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 16

I am a registered nurse and a FULL-TIME online freelance writer with over 3 year of experience in writing feature articles, essays, and blogs. For this reason, I am very confident that I CAN DELIVER ASSIGNMENTS ON OR BEFORE DEADLINES. To get an idea about my writing skills, please visit my website: I am a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Makati. I graduated as a Cum Laude and awarded the Top 3 best in Intensive Care Unit. I earned a grade of 1.20 (93) in both Communication Arts and Skills Course 1 and 2. I also had the same grade in my Rhetoric course. During my college years up until now, I consistently look for ways to improve myself both in writing and speaking by writing for our University paper, my affiliated Church and by joining a spokesman club. My course also required us to make a thesis which highly polished my English skills since I'm the one who is in charge of proofreading and editing. I recently passed the board exam on December 2010 with a passing rate of 81.80. Given with these credentials, I believe I will make a very competitive candidate for any job. The key strengths that I possess include: - Acquisition of effective knowledge and skills about the English language - Being a wide reader and provider of exceptional contribution to the employer - Striving for continued excellence and have a strong drive of going beyond mediocrity With a BS in Nursing, I believe I gained the full understanding of writing effective blogs, essays or articles. I'm also open to improving myself and gaining new experiences as needed to be better equipped for the job.
