    Scribe/Copywriter/Blogger

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

    I am a talented linguistic navigator; a motivated and captivating wordsmith, selling my talents and slinging my style to the highest bidder. I write website content, sales copy, and SEO articles for online marketers to earn my bread, and I spout off at the mouth for the butter. I have a highly opinionated blog at http://Zackrex.com, which includes a portfolio as well as many sporadic ramblings for your reading pleasure. Your project, assignment, or article--whatever the case may be--can be interpreted in a voice as monotone and unenthusiastic as a phone book read aloud by Henry Kissinger, but you'd probably prefer a booming and bombastic concerto, painstakingly crafted to make ears ring with ecstatic pleasure and wallets open up with ardent zeal. If you're looking for the former, I suggest you find a different scribe. I specialize in the sort of syntax that sings while it sells. I also have a Bachelor's degree in English literature that I never got around to framing. You see, I live in a condo without an enclosed office and scarce wall space. I thought it better suited me to adorn my surroundings with Pink Floyd album covers and Salvador Dali paintings, rather than remind myself that I'm a dreary academic with an expensive piece of paper hanging above the P.C. So drop me a line, and we can make beautiful music together. Or I can write something for you. Whatever. I'm anything but picky.

Because of my background in science, I have a passion for making complex ideas understandable to people from a variety of backgrounds, and with my experience living in both Europe and America, I have a global perspective and the ability to tailor my writing to diverse audiences. While completing my scientific studies, I worked part-time as a writer and program developer for a non-profit organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills.

My rates can be negotiated if less research is required. For editing (including academic editing), I charge $8.50 per double-spaced page.

I look forward to making new connections and expanding my areas of knowledge!
