    Someone wise once said, "a writer writes," and while that's true, a good writer can thoughtfully and accurately convey not only his own ideas, but the ideas of others as well. Over the last several years, I have written and edited material for a number of businesses and individual clients alike, from websites to educational developers to budding novelists and screenwriters. My strength as a freelancer stems from my accessibility, accuracy, and ability to understand each client’s individual needs. I have both independent and corporate experience in proofreading, copyediting, copywriting, narrative writing and editing, transcription, and more. As a lifelong student of literature in all forms, I specialize in proofreading, formatting, revisions and analyses of novels, screenplays, plays, and other narrative forms.  less

    Tested **Top 10% writing/ Top 10% marketing** I am an online writer with a technical sales, marketing and customer support background. If your business needs an American writer with high attention to detail that is sales-minded while still connecting with people- I should be your top choice. I also manage a team of American writers that assist in creating content that meets my high standards. If you need high quality content written or low-quality content fixed we are up for the job. I love to write, and it shows in my work. I write in a conversational, easy-to-read style that is perfect for the Internet. I'm actually a lot more comfortable writing than I am talking, and in a perfect world, I would write all of the time. I enjoy learning new things, researching new concepts, and explaining complicated topics. I write fast and learn even faster. I hate fluff and I'm allergic to SPAM. My focus is on readability and originality. I am also excellent at making a boring article exciting and writing sales-oriented writing. My niche is health writing. I have training as a health educator, college education in science and nutrition, and personal interest in alternative medicine and wellness. I also love technology with a focus on how technology affects society. In addition to writing, I have worked in technology sales, marketing, and customer service. I am very business oriented, and love working with small businesses. I am the owner of Freelance America, an Odesk agency specializing in top quality American talent. I am seeking paid writing opportunities to challenge my skills and compensate me appropriately. Credited work is preferred, but I will ghostwrite. Rate is dependent on project.  less
