    I want you to shine. I truly do. Whether writing copy for you or editing what you have already written, I will engage your specific audience and make sure your text is organized, easy to understand, and flows well. Though I can write/edit in a formal tone, my preference is to use a more conversational style that really connects with people while still being professional. My best work is done with individuals, educational organizations, and non-profit organizations, as that is where I have gained most of my experience. Recent projects include: - book manuscripts - organizational newsletters - academic articles I have also worked with news articles, blog articles/posts, website copy, brochures, drama scripts, seminar transcriptions, and email copy. REFERENCE: "I have worked with Kari Otto on a wide variety of projects, ranging from creating thought-provoking pieces for curriculum to crisp, informative brochure and web site copy. I am consistently impressed with her insights and the command she has of her craft. Her writing is clear, colorful and well-organized. Kari understands deadlines and has established a record of turning around projects well within the agreed upon timeline. She is also a gifted editor, pulling together the ideas from a rough piece of copy and turning into more effective communication. Kari delivers all of this with the confident, helpful attitude born of experience. I recommend her without reservation!" Michael Boze Art Director/Communications Specialist  less

    I live in Barcelona, Spain, where I work as a part-time copywriter for a local tour company. I wrote more than 80 pages of copy for the site's recent redesign and relaunch. I also oversee the company's social media campaign, which includes Twitter, Facebook and Google+. In addition to Barcelona Experience, this past year I've run social media campaigns and blogs for two different American companies. I'm also a news reporter for Snooth.com, a job in which I write 20 400-word articles in a 12.5-hour work week. From 2010 to 2012, I was a reporter at The Villages Daily Sun newspaper, the fastest-growing newspaper in America. I was a three-time finalist in the Florida Press Club's Excellence in Journalism contest. This past November, I won first place in Class B light features and second place in Class B health writing. Previous to the Daily Sun, I spent two years as a staff writer for the marketing department at Southeastern University. I oversaw the school's student intranet, I wrote ad and web copy, and served as the lead writer on several projects. I worked with Adobe Dreamweaver and an in-house CMS.  less

With extensive experience in writing, editing and proofreading, I am also proficient at PowerPoint creation, Excel and database management. I am able to write on a variety of subjects, and have earned a reputation with my former coworkers as being able to pick up a misspelling or be able to correct sloppy writing quickly and accurately.

    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

    I am a professionally trained voice actor with over five years of experience in producing commercials, eLearning programs, animations, video game characters, and audiobooks. Please check out my website: http://oakhurst.moonfruit.com/ I have a background in theater, and I received my BAS in Literature in 2008. As a full-time freelancer, I have a quick turnaround and am extremely deadline-driven. Almost all smaller projects can be completed within 24 hours. I record on top-quality equipment in a sound-isolated home studio, completely free of any background noise and custom built to enhance the warm low and mid tones of my voice. I have been working with Adobe's recording and editing program, Audition, for as long as I have been in the industry and have a knack for cleaning and polishing out all those irritating clicks, pops and breaths. I was born in America to British parents and am consequentially able to perform a multitude of accents from either side of the ocean, as well as a number of foreign accents including Russian, French, and German.  less

    I enjoy bringing ideas to life with words. I write eBooks, articles, blog posts and more. I provide high quality content guaranteed. I'm unfortunately not an article machine. I'd like to work with clients who give reasonable deadlines and those who appreciate quality. I have a team of writers and designers and we can help you with eBook covers, 2D or 3D and in converting your Word manuscript to Kindle, ePub or PDF format. I can create a complete eBook for you from quality writing to awesome design and layout. Ready for you to upload! For ghostwriting projects of more than 5000 words, I ask for a 50% upfront payment through an approved milestone and a 2nd milestone payment in escrow for the rest of the project cost, before I start on the book.
