    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.

    Legal/academic/professional writer

    United States - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    I have a J.D. and a B.A. For many years I worked as an appellate attorney, practicing in both state and federal courts. I also practiced in the areas of criminal defense, employment law, and personal injury litigation. For several years, I was a part-time law school instructor of legal research and writing. I also did some part-time editing for a legal publication and occasionally served as a legal analyst. While I maintain a mailing address in the United States, a few years ago I took an early retirement and moved overseas to pursue a more relaxing lifestyle. For most of the year, I live on a tropical island in Asia. Although I write fiction as a hobby, I supplement my income by doing a variety of contract writing, editing, and legal analysis. Most of clients have law-related websites, for which I produce blog posts, informative articles, FAQs, eBooks, and landing pages. In addition, I have done academic and professional ghostwriting, including preparation of academic papers, website articles, and political position papers. On occasion I edit books for self-published authors. Finally, I draft and edit legal documents and briefs for attorneys. Since that work is more intense and demanding than writing articles for websites, I charge a higher hourly rate for work of that nature. Although legal research and analysis is a specialty, I have a broad academic background in English literature, politics, and social sciences. My book blog is popular and I was once a front page writer for a well-regarded legal/political blog. I am available part-time for freelance assignments only.
