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).

/ Copywriter / Marketer / Editor

South Africa - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 5

About Me | ✎ Copywriter ★ Marketer ✔ Editor Victoria is a dynamic and innovative writer who loves the written word and everything to do with language. She has experience in public relations and marketing, has worked with new brands, and successfully launched new companies. She has an avid interest in new and social media and enjoys learning and experiencing new things. She has a service-driven personality and a good sense of humour. She is a hard worker who tends to burn the candle at both ends, and would love to get involved in your new project. Her industry experience includes solar and renewable energy, tourism and hospitality, and health and beauty. Victoria has a degree in English and Drama and Film. Her literary heroes include Oscar Wilde and Dr Seuss, although not necessarily in that order. The wordsmith in me believes that language is so defining for a sense of identity and is concerned that cell phone communication and low grade websites are just ‘dumbing’ people down. The commercial marketer in me seeks to find ways of making this work, and becoming work for me (if I wasn’t trying to make a point I’d insert a smiley face here). The intellectual in me loves to learn and wants to find ways to provide and share information that is interesting and new and relevant, and not just rehash what can be found on another 100 sites out there. So that’s all it is- trying to find the balance. And yes, having some fun in the process… Drop me a line.
