    A full-time American freelance editor and creative writer and one of oDesk's most sought after editors, I am skilled in both US and UK English styles. Highly professional and hard-working, I tackle every project as if it were my own, and am scrupulous in finding flaws. I have structurally and technically edited, proofed, and indexed numerous books, fiction and nonfiction, for publishers around the world, and worked with authors to shape their work into publishable material, including doctoral theses and scientific/academic books and journal articles. (See my portfolio for links to a selection of these published works.) I use Chicago Manual of Style but can apply AP and other style guides if you so request. Currently working on a historical novel and a travel memoir; two of my short stories were recognized by Writer's Digest Magazine from among more than 19,000 competitors. Please review the hundreds of 5-star-rated comments on my work product from previous oDesk clients and my topnotch proficiency test scores; see my website at http://www.yourbesteditor.com for further information. Please be advised that rates for last-minute jobs and those requiring extended or off-hours are subject to negotiation. Thank you.  less

    I am an avid reader, writer, and word-nerd seeking to combine my love of the craft with my desire to work from home. Having spent 15 years in the tech industry, I am very at ease with technical writing but can adapt easily to any subject. I've been published in PC Magazine and maintain my own blog of creative writing. I'm currently enrolled in a Master's program to obtain an MFA in Creative Nonfiction. I am also an accomplished fine art photographer, equally skilled with the camera as I am with editing software (primarily photoshop). If you're looking for a professional, literate, creative, and proactively communicative individual who's motivated to work, I hope you'll consider me for your next project.  less

    Hello. I’m Paul a writer/actor/director. I worked as a writer for the Walt Disney World Corp. for about 9 years and then decided to branch out and shake things up. My writing experience is broad within the arts community. Writing for Disney gave me the chance to script park shows, short film and musicals for the Disney Cruise line. Since leaving Disney I have written a book of short fiction, available on Amazon, scripts for industrial films for the V.A., commercial companies and production companies. I have written sketch comedy, weddings and even a few “come back to me you’re the only one” letters for the love lorn. I am especially gifted with dialogue and the rhythms of speech. I am able to build and create characters cleanly and clearly by the way I make characters speak. I can translate from book form into script form quickly and uniquely. My goal is to continue to write and write while I keep acting and directing. When I am asked which I like best, it’s hard to say. However, there is something quite wonderful about waking in the morning, having a deadline, knowing you can hit it, turning on the computer, sipping coffee and turning out a page of words. Writing is sometimes the hardest but, the most wonderful part of my days. I am good at it.  less

    I am currently working as a freelance digital publisher, editor, translator and journalist, having spent seven years working in the media, both in the UK and Denmark. This has included time at international broadsheets, specialist magazines, local newspapers, and a popular website. I have developed, written and edited a wide portfolio of print and online stories, aimed at diverse audiences, which has involved working closely with editors and graphic designers on how best to present complex issues in exciting but straight-forward ways. As well as producing fast and dynamic news stories to strict deadlines, my current role also allows me the creative freedom to do photo-journalism, research and develop complex articles and create short video segments for websites. My interests are wide and varied; I am fascinated by finance, foreign affairs, science and the environment, sports, the internet and geek culture, and the relationship between politics, the media and peoples’ lives. I also love to travel. I would relish the opportunity to work in a position that would allow me to bring together my love of communicating ideas and experiences with my passions and interests. I am half Danish and half English, and fluent in both languages. In addition, I have a good understanding of several other European languages and cultures. I see my dual nationality as an advantage as it gives me a fresh perspective on English approaches to publishing and an insight into how best to engage and interact with non-English people, like the Scandinavian for example. I enjoy sharing ideas and working as part of a creative team but also have the confidence to tackle projects autonomously. I pride myself on my attention to detail, positive outlook, work-ethic, and an ability to perform well under pressure. I enjoy new challenges, learn quickly and would relish the opportunity to further develop my career with you.
