    Unique. Engaging. Vivid.

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Portfolio: 7

    An esteemed author once wrote, "Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass." That is a guiding principle for me. Whether I am writing or editing, I seek to paint words with vivid brushstrokes, tapping into ideas through images; feelings through sensations; facts through well-mined research. Once I start a project, my focus goes to striking interesting notes of expression within a given equation. Website: www.limilines.com

    I love to write nonfiction and creative fiction.

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 5

    I have been teaching high school English for 20 years. I can write about practically anything. As a high school teacher and writer, I have a solid grasp of grammar and style. I have been teaching writing, and editing student work for many years. I discovered Elance by accident, but I have found it to be great place to be able to write, meet clients, and develop business relationships to meet their needs in an online setting. It has given me a new perspective as a teacher about the importance of writing and communicating. Over the years as a teacher, I have taught practically every subject, from creative writing to American Literature to Mythology. I also advised the school yearbook for several years and my books were awarded top marks in yearbook competitions, with one of them receiving international recognition for its quality and design. I have a BA in English and a MA in Education and I have taken many Master's level courses in journalism.

    Romania - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 6

    I want to make your product/service/business sound like it's the best thing your potential client can find on the market. I write engaging content that focuses on improving SEO, by using the perfect keyword density in easy-to-read content. I always go the extra mile to give my client the finished product that he expects. Deadlines are very important to me, and I am never late to deliver. Most of my writing relates to: product descriptions, product reviews, and SEO orientated blogging. Creative writing is a part of marketing-orientated content writing, but I see them as two different skills. Regular content writing involves research, and it has a predetermined goal. Creative writing is a passion for me, and I want to include my passion in my work as much as possible.
