    Opher G.

    Expert writing for the busy entrepreneur

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 31

    You need someone who quickly understands your needs, reviews your materials, asks intelligent questions, understands the answers, and lays out your thoughts and ideas clearly and effectively. You need RESULTS NOW, if not sooner. You don’t have time to educate a generic writer without the background to climb that steep learning curve quickly. “Incredible attention to detail and the ability to thoughtfully lay out complex ideas and concepts into an eBook that will give those with no experience in the subject a primer. Final product was provided ahead of schedule on a busy holiday week. We’re already talking about our next project.” “Opher did an amazing job. Took personal interest and delivered exceptional results. Went above and beyond what was initially agreed, focusing on nothing other than project success. Highly recommended when you want to get things done.” “Another amazing project with Opher! He’s fast, efficient and extremely talented. I'm about to hire him again."

    I'll make sure your work is the best it can be.

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 75

    As a crackerjack editor, it's my job to understand exactly and deeply what your writing is about, so that I can help make it everything you know it can be. Whether light or substantive editing is what you need, whether you want your voice retained or developed, I will apply skills gained over 30 years in trade publishing (fiction and non-fiction), magazine editing, pharmaceutical advertising, television production, researching, and generating b2b marketing materials. Comparison proofreading in 14 languages for a pharma re-branding effort, researching to find hidden information, writing newsletters and editing Web sites for arts agencies, suggesting revisions for scholarly articles written by college professors, and working on books that became NYTimes bestsellers: all were interesting projects for me, and successful for my clients. Certainly, editing fiction is always a delight. Whatever your project is, I will help you make sure your work is the best it can possibly be.

    Susan S.

    Psychologist, Academic Writer, Researcher

    United States - Last active: 2 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.

    Joshua Marcus

    Creative writer and copywriter

    South Africa - Last active: 1 day 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!
