Lidija Mavra

PhD qualified researcher and writer

United Kingdom - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 8

I am a PhD qualified researcher, writer, and director of an international award-winning social enterprise. I provide high quality online research services, expert advice in constructing methodologies for social research projects, assistance with academic, social campaign or blog content, and a skilled hand with proofreading and editing. Having worked for a number of research centres, I can also offer an efficient grant and tender writing service. An academically trained researcher with an established track record of researching and writing published reports and articles for diverse audiences, I can gather, analyse and synthesise information in an efficient and comprehensive way. This includes extensive experience analysing qualitative data using Atlas and NVivo. In addition, I can help you if you are campaigning on a particular social or environmental issue. Having a parallel life as a social entrepreneur - check out Unseen Tours in London, Joint Overall Winner of the Virgin Responsible Tourism Awards in 2011 - has meant that I straddle both the worlds of academic research and practice 'on the ground'. This means that I can cut through the jargon and give your campaign the weight it needs while keeping your message sharp and clear.

Freelance Writer

United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4

Welcome! I'm Cristina, a Freelance Writer and Editor based out of Los Angeles, California. I provide reliable and thorough services with a quick turnaround time. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Texas at Austin, which I completed in 2010, and have taken a variety of writing courses through Mediabistro, Gotham Writers, and authors Susan Shapiro and Simon Van Booy. I have been freelance writing for 3 years now. I am a big ideas person, but as we all know, ideas are cheap. In this day and age, it's important to be able to convert that idea into something valuable. I can help you with that. I attribute my love for writing and knowledge to my voracious reading habits as a youngster all the way through today. As Stephen King puts it, “If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” My passions in writing include health, vegetarian/vegan diet, travel, lifestyle, self-help, and career, but I can write just about any subject. Some of my services include: Content Writing - articles, blogging, you name it. Copywriting Creative Writing I also offer audio transcription services. I enjoy transcribing because it not only provides some extra income, but it also exposes me to a variety of subjects that I might not have even thought to delve into before, and what's better than gaining knowledge? I am available for hire. Please let me know how I can assist you with your projects. I look forward to hearing from you!
