    Whether you need formal documentation of your company's processes and procedures, or business content for your website or blog, or a simple quick-start guide for using a new system, perhaps I am the writer you have been looking for. U.S. English is my native language and I have been using my skill and gift as a "wordsmith" for 30+ years in technical, business and creative areas where the written word is needed to communicate information to others. My core talent is the ability to create clear and concise content for external clients and internal staff and co-workers. For the past 3+ years, I wrote reference and operations manuals for new franchisors. I am also a skilled proofreader and editor. I am a very detail-oriented writer regarding proper grammar, usage, punctuation and clarity. Further, I am well aware of factors that influence the readability (formatting, spacing, use of attributes, document layout, etc.) of a document/manual. Tools I have used include: MS Word (Advanced), Sharepoint (Intermediate), Adobe Acrobat (Intermediate), and WordPress (Basic). Samples of my work are readily available in the Portfolio section of my oDesk profile. Others can be provided on request.  less

    A former journalist, I have been professionally writing for eight years and now focus on copy writing, website content, articles, blogging, ghost writing, editing, proofreading and public relations. I specialize in the area of general health, health testing, drug testing and investor relations but I love learning and can quickly become a near-expert in any field in a short amount of time. I recently finished ghost writing several parts of a health-related book and currently maintain blogs about health, drug testing, investor relations, online business and baking. I am also a consultant for online marketing and social media initiatives. It is my goal to form ongoing relationships with a few good clients so I have a steady flow of work through oDesk. I can provide your company with reliability and quick turnaround time. Although I do have SEO experience, my forte is really writing blogs with a distinct voice and journalistic type articles. Currently an Athabasca University student studying for a BA in Communications, I hold a Journalism Diploma from Langara College in Vancouver and have studied Business Writing, Corporate Communications, Media Relations, Creative Writing and Marketing in university.
