    I have five years of editing and writing experience as a published writer with my own work, in addition to nonprofit and private sector writing as a freelancer. I have journalism, business to business "how to" and technical writing experience, as well as social writing, SEO writing, creative writing, blogging, copywriting, and editing experience with all the same writing style mentioned before, as well as some novels. I specialize in research and informative writing, and I have mostly written instructional articles, reviews on products and places, and marketing articles. When it comes to editing I have mostly worked on non-fiction books, news and academic articles, and I have edited a few fiction stories. With this combined experience I am more than capable of editing for your company and making something informative in the process. I have years of experience working with a variety of different companies, which gives me the confidence to edit for multiple projects at once. In addition, I can clearly define your project, identify right sources, know submission deadline, know personal needs, and update any necessary stories for your organization. With all my past writing jobs I have edited my own work, and the written work of others who have worked for me. I oversaw each article that I had any contact with, and gave my final edit review before turning the work in. In addition, I have worked in both AP and Chicago editing style, and I can learn any specific editing techniques your company uses. I am also confident in my research abilities as well, to portray an accurate message with the papers I am writing. For the past three years with my writing company I taught research methods, and would do freelance research for companies and students who needed extra information on the topic they were focused on. This has allowed me to study multiple different fields from advanced organic chemistry to social night life activities. I can work well by myself or with a team and I am ready to begin work today.  less
