    Evan Jensen

    US-based Health, Fitness, and Marketing Article Writer

    United States - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

    Website: My name is Evan Jensen. I specialize in writing about health, fitness, nutrition, chronic disease, and preventive medicine. I have a master’s degree in journalism and more than a decade of experience writing for newspapers, magazines and corporate clients, including health professionals, hospitals, wellness programs, and personal trainers. As a kid, I watched my obese parents try every diet in the book without success, and resolved not to take the same path. I’ve finished 30-plus marathons a couple of 100-mile ultra-marathons. I eat healthy, take a daily multi-vitamin, lead a weekly running group, and know my way around the gym. If you have writing or editing needs for articles, e-books, blogs, newsletters, press releases, feature stories, Q&As, case studies, marketing campaigns, or anything else, give me a shot at delivering high-quality content and making a good first impression. - Evan

    Lianne C.

    Eloquent and enthusiastic writer seeking writing projects

    Taiwan - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 1

    Let me first begin by introducing myself. My name is Lianne and I hold a dual degree in Marketing and Advertising. I've lived in the United States, Paris, Malaysia and Singapore. I am currently based in Taiwan and am looking to strengthen my freelance writing portfolio. Work-wise, I have held a myriad of positions related not just to writing, but also to that of public relations and marketing. My past roles include Publishing Editor, Editorial and Events Executive, and Events and Communications Intern. The most recent was that of Publishing Editor, which I held between December 2011 and February 2013. In a nutshell, my year and a half as Publishing Editor entailed me to write and edit all editorials, advertorials and reviews that were published in two print publications; a monthly magazine-directory distributed to 50,000 landed properties, and Station Map (a monthly tourist map geared towards tourists in Singapore). My time spent there has more than sufficiently schooled me in the myriad of ways to write articles and reviews that cover a broad range of topics, and of course, to head a publication.
