    Hello there! I'm a copy editor with two years of experience. I currently work as an Assistant English-Speaking Manager at a bi-lingual bookstore, which I helped open just this year. My duties there include advertising (visual, Facebook, and e-mail), editing, and teaching. I have been a business ESL teacher for over two years, so I know the English language inside and out! My typing speed averages at 75 wpm. I hope to work with you soon! - Elizabeth  less

    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.)  less

    I'm a comedy writer from New Jersey, with a background in journalism -- an observational humorist. I'm fluent in absurdism and adept at sketch comedy, satire and Twitter. My comedy training is diligent and my experience diverse. I've studied journalism and media studies at Rutgers University and sketch comedy writing at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York. I've written (and punched up) stand-up material, one-liners and humor essays, beta-tested a parody news website, scripted animated series, copy-written greeting cards, and won a pun-off. I'm seeking new opportunities to craft the perfect punchline. Or whatever it is you need. I treat all senses of humor equally; except the bad ones.  less

    I do nothing but Wikipedia articles. I am a seasoned Wikipedia editor of eight years. I will take a look at your information to see if an article can be posted on Wikipedia about you or your company and whether it will stay there without being deleted. Wikipedia requires that companies be “notable” and that the information be obtained from reliable, neutral sources (usually newspapers, magazines or trusted websites), not from the companies’ own sites or publications (minor use is OK). Just tell me what sources you have for the article. I will counsel you on what you have to do to get the page in shape for Wikipedia publication, and if I think an article on your company would be accepted by WP. If I don’t think you have enough sources, or the right kind, I will tell you. If I think WP will accept an article about your company, I willI make a bid to write the article and submit it, based upon my usual rate of $35 an hour. No obligation on your part. You OK the article before I submit it. I do this to keep you from spending any time or money on a project that simply would be impossible to achieve. You pay nothing for my advice. I don't make any charge for this “pre-article” service and you can simply send me the information without using a contract. If you decide to use my services in actually writing the article, or editing an existing one, I ask an hourly contract at $35 an hour. We could start with a limit of five hours, or $175. It might not take that long. Or it might take longer. As you probably know, an hourly contract means you have access to all my screen shots and keystrokes so we can keep tabs on our progress together. Note superior rankings in the oDesk tests I have taken, below. Very fast worker, but careful. Rapid online researcher. Here is a list of the articles I have created on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?limit=50&tagfilter=&title=Special%3AContributions&contribs=user&target=GeorgeLouis&namespace=0&tagfilter=&newOnly=1&year=2015&month=-1  less

    Every business has a meaningful story to be told. Finding meaning and expressing it is what I do. I am a meaningmonger or rather I am the meaningmonger. I am the only one in the world. Why? I coined that term, meaningmonger. Remember you first heard it here. Enough about what I do. Here's what I am not and what I don't do. 1. I am not the world's best copywriter. I try very hard to be. As the bard said, "Only a fool thinks he is the best, the wise man knows himself to be a fool." 2. I don't watch TV. I read (I didn't mean to sound like a snob but that's the truth), I think (and stare into space at the same time) and I get out a lot, watch people, eavesdrop on other people's conversations (I hear that's where comedians get their material. If it's good for funny people, I think it's good for me). 3. I don't waffle (sometimes also known as SEO), or write empty, meaningless stuff. Most people (not machines and engines) enjoy reading what I write. If you didn't so far, don't read any further. 4. I don't use spellcheck. I don't just use words. I use them meaningfully. More than a mere writer or wordsmith, I prefer to think of myself as dispensing meaning. Meaning is important. Words are not. (If you agree, read on.) ‘Are these fortune cookies?’ asked Jill. ‘Yes,’ said the waiter ‘with compliments from the chef.’ Jill broke open her cookie and frowned at the strip of paper inside. ‘What does it say?’ asked Jack. ‘It sounds cryptic and rude,’ said Jill. Jack took the strip of paper from her and read, ‘Be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless.’ ‘If I eat lunch like this every day, I will be formless and shapeless,’ said Jill. ‘It’s Bruce Lee,’ said Mark. They both looked at him with incomprehension. ‘It’s what Bruce Lee said,’ explained Mark. ‘Meaning if you flow like water, you will never get stale.’ ‘And I thought they were calling me empty-minded and shapeless,’ said Jill with obvious relief. ‘If you do this and that, what you will get is diddlysquat,’ read out Jack from his fortune cookie. ‘What does that mean?’ said Jill. ‘It means that whoever is writing these fortune cookies needs to be more tactful,’ said Jack throwing down the strip of paper. ‘They are not going to get repeat customers saying stuff like this.’ ‘There’s a message for you, Jack,’ said Mark. Jill looked at him askance. ‘Look at Jack,’ said Mark. Jack’s phone was wedged between his left ear and shoulder while typing on his Blackberry. Jill shrugged, ‘What?’ ‘He is multitasking,’ said Mark. ‘So?’ said Jill. ‘If you do two things at the same time, you can do neither of them well and hence you get zero results, ergo diddlysquat,’ said Mark. ‘I have to go,’ said Jack getting up. ‘Me too,’ said Jill. ‘See you later, Mark.’ ‘Don’t you want to know what my fortune cookie says?’ called out Mark as they left the restaurant. (If you want to know more about me, read on. If you only want to know what was in Mark's fortune cookie, scroll down to the footnote at the end.) Messages are nothing without meaning. Do you think that Jack or Jill will lunch again at the Chinese restaurant? It's unlikely unless Mark insisted on taking them there. It would be great to have more friends like Mark. It would make our jobs much easier. Unfortunately, the Jacks and Jills of this world outnumber the Marks. Fortunately, some of us know this and ensure words are used not just to fill up space or fortune cookies but to mean something. I've been using words and infusing messages with meaning for over 17 years. As a full-time freelance copywriter on oDesk since August 2012, I've written content for blogs, websites, copy for sales letters and response-driven direct mail content. I've also ghostwritten books in the fiction and self-help categories that have been successfully published and sold on Amazon.com. I focus on enabling advertisers, brands, marketers as well as individuals and entrepreneurs find a singularly unique and engaging voice to express their message in a memorable manner. I've been writing effective, persuasive advertising copy and marketing communications content since 1993. Before freelancing, I worked as a copywriter with international companies such as Qatar Airways, artobrand.com, gpradvertising.com, Kamerad-News and MAA-Bozell. So, when you hire me, you are not only getting an experienced copywriter who delivers quality but also content that is meaningful and makes relevant sense to the reader. 'Keep Smiling and everyone will wonder what you are up to.' That's what Mark's fortune cookie said.  less

    I enjoy words. My chief joy in editing and writing is to make copy more clear, cogent and accessible. From my first job as a copy editor at a daily newspaper, I’ve learned to pare down the excess words that clog writing, whether the writing is news, history or fiction. I have worked as an editor for three daily newspapers, edited for a county in Southwest Ohio and worked as a copy editor/proofreader for a California county Economic Development Agency. I have written and edited many published news stories—two are attached. I also edited several book-length annual reports as well as a web site for the Ohio county. I would like to make a living doing what I enjoy.  less

    Let me first begin by introducing myself. My name is Lianne and I hold a dual degree in Marketing and Advertising. I've lived in the United States, Paris, Malaysia and Singapore. I am currently based in Taiwan and am looking to strengthen my freelance writing portfolio. Work-wise, I have held a myriad of positions related not just to writing, but also to that of public relations and marketing. My past roles include Publishing Editor, Editorial and Events Executive, and Events and Communications Intern. The most recent was that of Publishing Editor, which I held between December 2011 and February 2013. In a nutshell, my year and a half as Publishing Editor entailed me to write and edit all editorials, advertorials and reviews that were published in two print publications; a monthly magazine-directory distributed to 50,000 landed properties, and Station Map (a monthly tourist map geared towards tourists in Singapore). My time spent there has more than sufficiently schooled me in the myriad of ways to write articles and reviews that cover a broad range of topics, and of course, to head a publication.  less
