    Academic Writing with Distinction

    Hungary - Last active: 27 days ago - Portfolio: 14

    With years of university training behind me, I can provide the highest quality when it comes to working with language. Any great idea needs to be communicated, and when it is written properly and with the right words that were tuned to perfection, then it can have its full effect on the reader. Since in the past years, I've been working with many different types of texts, I acquired a general flexibility and a good sense of precision I will use in any project I take. The provided quality comes at an affordable price because I am enthusiastic to work in the projects I take. Be it academic writing, SEO, book review, blogging or translation, I can take a huge workload and I am able to carry out background work and professional research. I offer experience and the guarantee of my personal strive for quality so that the job will be done flawlessly in every way.

    Creative writer and copywriter

    South Africa - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 4

    I've been writing for over five years, both as a personal means of expression, as well as contracted freelance work. Over that time, I have completed numerous short stories, penned articles for social media and satire blogs and websites, and have written and edited chapters for various authors. Within fiction, which is my main area of focus, I write intense, emotional scenes to great effect, as well as dark humour. I write literary fiction and sci-fi, for the most part, but I also have experience in romance and erotica. Other creative work has included satire, emotional wellness blogging, social media how-to columns, and well-researched, informative articles on a vast range of topics. I am fortunate to have the opportunity this year to study an honours degree in Creative Writing through Wits University, during which I hope to perfect my writing style, as well as gain experience from interaction with and feedback from experts in the South African writing community. In addition to my own creative work, I am skilled at recognising and differentiating good writing from bad. I will utilise these skills to edit, critique and provide expert recommendations to ensure your work meets the high standards required for unqualified success. Within the corporate field, I write engaging copy for businesses and entrepreneurs, which provides information and guidelines, while maintaining the reader's interest and keeping them entertained when appropriate. Over the course of an honors degree in Psychology - including experience with group therapy and trauma counselling - I have gained great insight and perspective into human nature. This is a major strength in my writing. I write realistic characters and bring clarity and insight into stories, whether fiction or non-fiction. Overall, I'll produce work which is of a very high quality, in terms of writing style and content. Thanks for reading!

    Psychologist, Academic Writer, Researcher

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Portfolio: 1

    20 years of stellar performance reviews and delighted clients. I am a well-published academic author, Applied Research Psychologist, award-winning teacher, and evaluator of organizational programs, policies, and change initiatives. I recently left my faculty position at a University of Wisconsin System school to provide caregiving and support to my parents, so I'm new to Elance, but I'm certainly not new to freelance consulting. I've owned my own consulting business since 1994. Learn more by googling Susan L. Staggs or visiting my LinkedIn page at https://www.linkedin.com/pub/susan-staggs/b/1/a75.
