Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

United States - Last active: 26 days ago - Tests: 4

I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.

Joshua Marcus

Creative writer and copywriter

South Africa - Last active: 22 hours ago - Tests: 4

I've been writing for over five years, both as a personal means of expression, as well as contracted freelance work. Over that time, I have completed numerous short stories, penned articles for social media and satire blogs and websites, and have written and edited chapters for various authors. Within fiction, which is my main area of focus, I write intense, emotional scenes to great effect, as well as dark humour. I write literary fiction and sci-fi, for the most part, but I also have experience in romance and erotica. Other creative work has included satire, emotional wellness blogging, social media how-to columns, and well-researched, informative articles on a vast range of topics. I am fortunate to have the opportunity this year to study an honours degree in Creative Writing through Wits University, during which I hope to perfect my writing style, as well as gain experience from interaction with and feedback from experts in the South African writing community. In addition to my own creative work, I am skilled at recognising and differentiating good writing from bad. I will utilise these skills to edit, critique and provide expert recommendations to ensure your work meets the high standards required for unqualified success. Within the corporate field, I write engaging copy for businesses and entrepreneurs, which provides information and guidelines, while maintaining the reader's interest and keeping them entertained when appropriate. Over the course of an honors degree in Psychology - including experience with group therapy and trauma counselling - I have gained great insight and perspective into human nature. This is a major strength in my writing. I write realistic characters and bring clarity and insight into stories, whether fiction or non-fiction. Overall, I'll produce work which is of a very high quality, in terms of writing style and content. Thanks for reading!
