    Creative Writer, Editor, Proofreader

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 7

    As an author myself, I know the value of a good editor; one who will be able to catch every misused word, missed punctuation or letter, unclear message, and inconsistency. The books on my shelves have notes scribbled throughout, little crossed-out pencil scratchings over words that just don't hit home, and margin-notes about missed opportunities for more powerful options. I'm here to offer this service to you BEFORE you send your precious work off into the world of publication. Everybody misses things when they're writing their own work, without fail there is something worth changing, and I'll find it for you and offer suggestions for improvement where needed. Currently, I am a Managing Editor of the Greenleaf Review Literary Magazine, where I run a team of editors to put out a magazine of student submissions on a tight deadline. Our team gets maybe three months with the materials before a final magazine is produced and I have the responsibility to make sure we all meet deadlines along the way and handle submissions in a professional and respectful manner. We have a short editing session each year and the rest of the time I'm on here looking for more projects to fill my time. I hope you'll consider letting me be a part of your process towards publication.

    Translator and freelance writer

    Sweden - Last active: 14 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 3

    Accurate, skillful and style sensitive translations from Swedish to English or vice versa; content writing, editing, proofreading, transcription -- fast, intelligent and really well done. Interested? Try me out and you won't be disappointed. Quality is my hallmark; I do not leave a job half done and I'm the guy you can rely on in basically all areas that involve language and texts -- from research to product. My experience as a Staff Educator and as an Office Manager in Sweden has given me a thorough experience in the above mentioned skills, as has my personal passion for language and writing. My extensive travelling and living with my American girlfriend has helped to fine tune my English as well as given me experience in Portuguese and Hebrew. My enthusiasm for and interest in the written word is the reason why I now chose to dedicate my time to what I truly enjoy, and one of the things that makes me happy: writing, translation and working with texts. I firmly believe that what is made with joy always leaves a better track both in terms of results and for all parties involved. I hope I can be of service.
