Writer/Editor/Attorney: Law| Business | Creative|...

United States - Last active: 23 hours ago - Tests: 12

For more than 15 years, I have been a writer and editor in many different capacities, from writing white papers on healthcare policy, to founding and editing a literary journal, to editing theses and dissertations for graduate students, to crafting and revising resumes. I am also an attorney, with very strong legal research and writing skills in many areas of the law. Much of my professional experience has been in healthcare policy and law, and I have an excellent grasp of medical terminology and am familiar with a broad range of health topics and issues. In addition, I write literary fiction that has been published widely. My collection of short fiction was published in June of 2014. If it's not listed, I might know it. If I don't know it, I'd love to learn it. I look forward to working with you. (Please note that my fees for legal work are higher than my posted hourly rate, which is my fee for general writing and editing.)

Canada - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 6

I love to read, to learn, and to write. I am very passionate about medicine, science, and health, and I feel very fortunate to be able to combine these passions with my love for writing. I come from a broad scientific background and have a sound understanding of most biomedical topics, including cell biology, molecular biology, physiology, immunology, microbiology, pharmacology etc. For the last two years, I have been studying and working in the Skin Cancer Biology Lab at the University of British Columbia, Canada, where my research has been mainly focused on cancer (melanoma). I am currently working full time as a freelance academic editor and medical writer. I have over two years' experience in writing scientific papers and grant proposals, in performing literature reviews, and in collecting, organizing, and analyzing experimental data. I have great organizational skills and have never missed a deadline (and don't intend to start now!) Please feel free to contact me for any job related to medicine, no matter how small or how big. I'm also happy to help out with translations from Swedish to English, whether they are related to medicine or not. Cheers :)
