    Freelance writer and academic copyeditor

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

    I have a PhD in biology (Indiana University, 2013) with publications spanning evolutionary ecology, bioinformatics, genomics, and botany. Over the last year, I've become a careful and helpful copyeditor of academic manuscripts in many fields, including agriculture, environmental sciences, psychology, clinical medicine, and foreign policy. I edit all documents, from dissertations to cover letters and CVs, for clients of all backgrounds, including ESL. Jobs less than 4,000 words are done in 24 hours. In addition to standard and substantive copyediting, I also specialize in rewriting cover letters. If you can provide me with some rough text and/or a CV/resume, I can provide you with a stellar cover letter that shows people just how much you have to offer. I'm also available for consultations on statistics and use of the R statistical computing environment. This service can range from troubleshooting and guidance of your analyses to writing R code and performing analyses for you.

    Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

    United States - Last active: 11 days ago - Tests: 4

    I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.
