Everyone has a story. The key to success is finding someone who can tell it. With a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communications from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I have more than 20 years of experience in telling people's stories and copy editing those stories for newspapers, magazines and businesses. My written work has appeared in The News & Observer, The Charlotte Observer, The Independent Weekly, The Detroit Free Press, Essence magazine, Ebony.com, Duke Divinity's Faith & Leadership online magazine, Signal Hill and WomenAdvanceNC.org. As a former health writer at The News & Observer in Raleigh, N.C., my work has been recognized for excellence with awards from the North Carolina Press Association, the American Cancer Society, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the American Heart Association. I also have served as a copy editor on numerous projects, including a memoir, an academic textbook and a 100-page RFP for a real estate company. I can make your copy sing and your clients take note. If you've got a story to share, I can find a compelling way to tell it.

We all want to have the most appealing and financially rewarding website out there, don’t we? The unfortunate truth is that most new websites fall far short of this ambition, because very few people truly understand how to go about creating one. Too many times I’ve been called in by clients who’ve paid out for a website that ends up poorly reflecting their business. The problem seems to be the multitude of contrasting skills required for the job. Rarely will one person have a skill-set comprehensive enough to encompass all areas of website production — from programming to user interface design to writing engaging copy that’s optimised for search engines and converts visitors into paying customers. This is where I can offer something special to my clients: over the past 10 years I have dedicated myself to helping small businesses gain momentum and build explosive growth. My speciality is web design, as this is where I have found most small businesses require help, but my skills and advice are usually enlisted in numerous other areas of a particular business. This requires wearing many hats, so I’ve been lucky enough to diversify and hone my skills in all aspects of design, marketing and copywriting. Last week I packed up my life in the UK and moved all of my belongings to Thailand, where I will be spending the next 6 months. The people are wonderful, the weather is fantastic, the food is out of this world and my apartment comes complete with fibre optic broadband and a pool. As a bonus, my living costs are low so I can pass some of that saving on to my clients. Having only just begun my life as a digital nomad, my profile currently lacks any reviews from previous oDesk clients; however, included in my portfolio below is a selection of work completed for my most recent client (Green Energy Advice Team) from my hometown of Brighton, UK.

Copy & Content Editor Philip Bartholomew

United States - Last active: 09/12/2014 - Tests: 2

Prior to my time as a comparative literature at NYU, I had already developed an in-depth knowledge of literature of all types written in and translated into the English language. Soon after my arrival in Manhattan, I had started working part-time as an editorial intern with a small publishing house, DonnaInk Publications. As I copy & content edited both fiction and non-fiction manuscripts alike, some of which then went on to be electronic bestsellers within their respective genres on Amazon, the CEO of DonnaInk Publications realized my potential and hired me for the senior editor's position before I had graduated from NYU this past May. Due to the limited number of manuscripts, however, I was only required to work part-time. Currently, as I continue to concentrate on my own academic and non-fiction writing, I'm seeking a publishing house or literary agency in need of a full-time editor or editorial assistant with a Bachelor's degree, although I am always open and excited to do freelance editing of almost any kind or length.
