    Words are my favorite tool and writing is my passion. I'm a Media and Communications major and have been a freelance writer for as long as I can remember (fine, for as long as I have been able to write which is about 15 years). You can also take a look at my LinkedIn profile for a more in-depth look at my resume and experience: mx.linkedin.com/in/menadearino I love adapting to different styles and voices, giving each article, book or content just the touch it needs. The constant change in topics is something that keeps me on my toes, similar to an adrenaline junkie but without the heights; I'm scared of both heights and frogs.  less

    For over 20 years, I have been a school principal, classroom teacher, writer, artist, and small business owner ( private school ) and am now semi-retired working from home as a contractor for these skills.

    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

    My job and academic background is broad ranged and flexible. I have an strong command of the English language, in both writing and speaking. I also have experience in teaching at a university level in the study of world religious traditions, art, history, and pottery making. My writing experience has been in various capacities (i.e. blogs, websites, technical writing, academic papers, research, advertising, grading/editing texts and translation, creative writing). I earned a Master of Arts in the Study of Religion; a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts, Anthropology with a specialization in Archaeology, and the Study of Religion. I further earned degrees in Jewelry Design and Repair, Holistic Health practices, and am currently finishing the Dutch Language requirement for residence in the Netherlands. Although I am comfortable in an academic environment, I also have worked in customer service in various capacities and have learned office and IT technical skills. I am a social and friendly person, but am also independent and am equally comfortable working alone, as well as with others. I am a self-motivated person and also created my own international retreat organization with an online store.  less

    *I am now an oDesk top 10% contractor* As a published writer, I know how important your project is to you. If you need something written, I can write it. If you have it written, I can edit it. My previous clients and references include best-selling and Oprah Book Club authors, international speakers, academics, religious leaders, and award winning journalists. Whether you need help with fiction, non-fiction, or creative non-fiction, I can present it in an engaging, page turning manner. My specialties include: Young Adult, Religion, Philosophy, and fantasy/science fiction, which includes popular paranormal romance and speculative fiction.

Or if you have finished your story and want to know how it would do in the market, I can tell you. I am not just a writer, but a literary consultant. I know how to help you find an agent, get a line editor, or navigate the sticky ropes of self-publishing.

    I am an experienced writer with over a decade's experience of producing high quality, diverse and completely original work. I hold a Masters degree in Philosophy for creative writing, am published as a novelist by one of the world's largest publishing houses and am represented by one of London's leading creative talent agencies. My strength is in fiction writing - I am a published author of fiction novels which are currently optioned for TV and film. My third novel has recently been submitted to my agent. A fourth and fifth are in progress. I was named on Waterstones book group's select list of 'New Voices' in 2010 and longlisted for Book of the Year that same year. I am a competent short fiction writer, having published online and in magazines, with one winning a national prize. I am actively involved in the on-going process of proofreading, editing and critiquing novels written by fellow authors, many of whom have also gone on to be successfully published. I have extensive experience in non-fiction work too, having produced published articles for travel magazines, reports for regional news events, and other opinion pieces. This experience also extends to travel and similar lifestyle-related web content. I have written a large number of in-depth analyses and reviews of various writing genres, provided synopses and critiques of novels for teaching purposes, and I also have vast experience in the preparation and writing of legal documents for criminal prosecutions. I am a creative writing tutor and mentor for adult students, having previously taught students enrolled with an international writing organisation, and occasionally run workshops for enthusiastic writers. I am a passionate writer with a broad range of skills. My work is meticulous and thorough with huge attention to detail. I work exceptionally well under pressure and guarantee high quality work with a very efficient turnaround rate. Despite joining oDesk almost two years ago, it is only now (having recently becoming a full-time freelancer) that I am able to commit to regular work.  less

    Let me first begin by introducing myself. My name is Lianne and I hold a dual degree in Marketing and Advertising. I have lived in the United States, Paris, Malaysia and Singapore. I am currently based in Taiwan and am looking to not just pass the time, but also to strengthen my freelance writing portfolio. Work-wise, I have held a myriad of positions related to not just writing, but also that of public relations and marketing positions. My past roles have included Publishing Editor, Editorial and Events Executive, Events and Communications Intern and Teaching Assistant, the most recent of which was the post 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. Hence, if you are in need of an eloquent, reliable, concise and enthusiastic writer, look no further!  less
