Writer, Editor, Illustrator
Hello! My name is Kiell (pen-name: Rudy Kiell) and I'm a freelance writer, editor, and illustrator.
My career goal is to become a developmental editor, helping authors to polish their work into strong stories with compelling characters. My personal goal is to write and illustrate children's and young adult novels.
As part of my Creative Writing concentration, I have honed my critical reading skills, my fluency in offering helpful yet honest criticism, and my ability to work independently and effectively under deadlines. Through my general English course work, I have developed my writing skills, my attention to detail, and my ability to think critically. I have also gained an enhanced knowledge of history and social awareness.
To bolster my abilities, I have studied throughout the English language spectrum with classes focusing on Children's and Young Adult's literature, Professional Writing, and Scriptwriting. I have also studied subjects outside of the English literature spectrum such as forensics, self-defense, art, Chinese, supernatural folklore, and psychology. I even minored in medieval studies.
Besides my accomplishments in school, I have also polished my reading, writing, and editing abilities through internships. During my time as an intern at Twisted Limb Paperworks I co-authored press releases and articles for the company website as well as composing text for the company's holiday card line. As a journalism intern at Living Full Out, I wrote a broad range of copy including event proposals, a business plan, press releases, webpage copy, media kits, emails, radio ads, and tv scripts.
I believe that all I have learned through my intern and school experiences will make me a valuable asset to you. If my background meets your needs, please feel free to contact me.
