    Creative and Professional Writer

    Canada - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 8

    Hello! My name is Hailey, and I have just obtained my Master's degree in Library and Information Science, following a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and Creative Writing. I have taken a variety of creative and professional writing classes throughout my undergraduate career, including: humour writing, visual packaging (advertising), travel writing, writing for publication, conceptual writing, and many more. I also have a lot of experience writing academic papers and essays. I have had a creative fiction piece published in one of the campus journals, and won the 2011 Heritage Writing Award for a historical piece based upon my grandfather's personal experiences in WWII. I am now working as a college librarian in the wonderful province of Newfoundland and Labrador. While I am currently experimenting more with conceptual writing, I would like to gain more experience in professional-based writing, such as resumes, cover letters, company statements, etc., while also demonstrating my skills in the creative writing realm. Ultimately, my goal is to make my clients happy. I want to receive 5 star ratings and I will do anything to get them! If something isn't right in the work, if it needs tweaking or more revising, just give me some comments and feedback and I'll happily go at it again until I get it right. Your satisfaction is like a sixth gold star! I am happy to offer samples of my work to anyone interested and look forward to hearing from you!

    Stay at Home Mum to 2 Boys within the Autism Spectrum

    Australia - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 2

    My name is Roxanne and I live in the lovely city of Perth, located in Western Australia, with my partner and our two boys. Having two boys who are at opposite ends of the autism spectrum may sound like a lot of hard work. While it IS a lot of hard work, it is something that makes you stronger as a person and the amount of skills you acquire on your journey across and through the autism spectrum is simply amazing. With both boys now attending mainstream schooling on a full-time basis, I am ready to start working. The only thing is that I still need to be at home, not only to cook to special diets but also to clean up after the human-hurricane that is our youngest son.

    Katherine S.

    Skilled Content Writer and Web Designer

    United States - Last active: 12/18/2012 - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 5

    Over the years, I have engaged in creative writing, graphic design, and website design. Each of these has been in a variety of industries including but not limited to ministries, churches, education, automotive, photography, finance, and e-commerce. I design sites to be compatible on all devices wherever possible and use only current HTML and CSS standards. I also work with PHP, Javascript, and Flash. I have some experience with AJAX, MySQL, and XML as well. While I can work with CMS, I prefer not to do so as my focus is on unique and custom design rather than content management. I have a passion for bringing out the unique personality and character of each organization through graphic and web design and would like to do the same for you. I write website content, product descriptions, blog articles, and newsletters. I can write on nearly any subject. While oDesk requires an hourly rate, I do not work by the hour. I am a homeschooling mom of 2, one of whom has disabilities. My schedule has to remain flexible to fit in doctors and therapy appointments. However, my rates are very reasonable. Please contact me for rates on your specific project.

    Certified Professional Secretary

    United States - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 16 - Portfolio: 1

    Bad news: I have only one oDesk job completed to date. Good news: You could be the one to change that. Better news: If you hire me anyway, you won't be disappointed. I offer excellent typing, transcription, proofreading, and English language skills. I will complete your assignments per your instructions and in a timely manner. I am honest, efficient, and eager to assist you in meeting your goals. Becoming a teacher was always my dream job from the time I started first grade. I taught myself to type when I was about 12 years old. One week after high school graduation, I was hired as a part-time secretary in an architectural firm. I had no experience whatsoever, but I could type quickly, and I could spell accurately. Upon my introduction to the magical world of word processing and computers, I quickly realized I no longer had the desire to teach. I worked at that firm full-time from the first day for the next 13 years. I have been in the administrative support/office management field for 35+ years now. The majority of my computer knowledge comes from being self-taught. I may not know how to write code, but I still think of myself as a 'computer nerd.'

    United States - Last active: 05/09/2013

    I was first published at the age of 7 in my school newspaper and I have been writing non-stop ever since. Expression through words has always come very easy to me, and I have utilized this talent in every facet of my life. I have a degree in Fine Arts from Howard University and was able to develop my creative writing skills through my study of theater and subsequent writing and production of several plays. I have had poetry published in the 1993 Norton Anthology of Poetry and have written songs for recording artists from Polygram and Sony records. I have written web-content including bio’s for recording artists and several journalistic articles for a socio-political web-site called PlanetWaves.org. During my time at J.P. Morgan on Wall Street, The World Bank in Washington, DC and numerous law-firms, non-profit organizations and health-care facilities from temp-work for 20 years, I have perfected my technical and administrative communication skills. I have also recently just completed a film studies class with a concentration in screen-play writing and feel very excited to be able to add that skill to my training. What really gives me an advantage, I believe, is the extent to which I’ve been able to travel and experience a very rich and stimulating life. I toured with a theater company as a child in Atlanta, GA, started a career in modeling/acting/singing in New York City eventually booking a gig on an ABC TV show called “CityKids” and have been fortunate to be able to perform in and travel to many places around the world including Hong Kong, Cuba and London. I have an insatiable curiosity that has led to a resourceful ability towards internet research; coupled with an un-quenchable need to read and know everything, I am a great writer! I am also one of the minority of creative “types” who also values punctuality and high standards in being of service. In any case, it seems that I can’t go a day without writing . . . at present one of my future goals is to learn to write in Spanish. I am very excited to be able to share my talent with you in any way that it can be of beneficial assistance.
