    Script Reader

    United States - Tests: 7

    As a young, aspiring American writer and editor, I believe the best compensation I receive from any job is the experience of working with your literary material. I am a current senior at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, focusing in screenwriting with a double major in history. Because I am a student, I have the ability to charge lower rates and to work on a tight deadline. Storytelling is what makes me excited, and I believe good stories deserve to be told in a way that flows and is clear and concise. The types of editing I perform include manuscript (copyediting or line editing), mechanical, substantive, and if desired, developmental. I primarily specialize in The Chicago Manual of Style, though I can apply whatever style guide your project requires. My workflow generally consists of two read-throughs--one very slow in which I do the majority of my editing, and a second sweep in which I check the flow and revise my edits. Every project I work on is incomplete until you are satisfied. Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you!

    Writer//Blogger//Photographer exploring the world

    United States - Tests: 1

    http://www.jessiebryson.com I’m a writer and photographer, and by virtue of the professions days, a blogger. I’m currently based in Beijing, China - though as apparent through my undying quest for tacos and salads, am 100% American (My husband gets moved around a lot internationally for his job, so I travel the world with him - it’s not a bad gig). I started writing when we first moved to China back in 2009 and have found happiness in little corners of the online and print universe. I mostly write about food, culture, and travel, but my personal interests also span design, fashion, entertainment, environment, sustainability, and farming. My experiences in the arts, sales, food & wine, the development world, and editing have given me various and useful skills that I employ in my writing, to seek out interesting and engaging stories. I am also available for recipe testing, light copyediting, Chinese translation, voice-over work, and as a travel guide. Let me know what I can do for you!!
