I have worked as a freelance writer and editor for more than three years; in that time I've been a part of four long-term projects and a host of shorter, one-time projects. The content I've worked on is quite diverse, ranging from biographies to e-commerce products, as well as miscellaneous topics such as health and medicine, food, fashion, technology, insurance, business and law, home and garden, education, and more. I can handle pretty much whatever comes my way, breaking down complex topics and making them easily accessible whether I am writing or editing. My command of grammar is impeccable, and I have worked with Chicago and Associated Press styles extensively; I have some experience in APA and MLA as well. Although I am a native U.S. English speaker, my work includes Australian and U.K.-based content.
More importantly, my journalism background has taught me how to juggle several tasks at the same time. I can prioritize and complete tasks under tight deadlines without compromising quality. Although I'm equally capable of working independently with minimal supervision, I thrive in team environments where feedback and constant communication are required. For several projects I have assisted with style guide development and expansion; I've also done quality assurance, ensuring that writers and editors were meeting style and content requirements.
I take pride in maintaining good relationships with the writers and editors on a team. When it comes to providing feedback, I can handle even the most complicated grammar issues. I've trained writers and editors, and heard many times that they appreciate my thoughtfulness and helpful suggestions. My approach is not just saying "fix this"; I provide guidance and examples so that writers and editors can learn and improve their skills without stabbing blindly in the dark hoping to hit on something that works.
