    Someone wise once said, "a writer writes," and while that's true, a good writer can thoughtfully and accurately convey not only his own ideas, but the ideas of others as well. Over the last several years, I have written and edited material for a number of businesses and individual clients alike, from websites to educational developers to budding novelists and screenwriters. My strength as a freelancer stems from my accessibility, accuracy, and ability to understand each client’s individual needs. I have both independent and corporate experience in proofreading, copyediting, copywriting, narrative writing and editing, transcription, and more. As a lifelong student of literature in all forms, I specialize in proofreading, formatting, revisions and analyses of novels, screenplays, plays, and other narrative forms.  less

    Updates: We raised over $62,000 in 32 days on a client Kickstarter Campaign! About Me: I am a copywriter, an online marketer, social media marketer and the Co-Founder of KickStartup Marketing. I create content for websites, articles, blogs and run several social media campaigns for a very diverse set of clients. I am always available to discuss the project and I'm a true self-starter. I help online (and offline) entrepreneurs form and execute marketing strategies to boost their customer base and increase sales. My specialty is in helping clients set up their social media marketing campaigns (the technical aspects of profile readiness) and maintain it long-term so they can concentrate on running their business. I am a copywriter and specialize in website content, and content related to product branding. I also write for several blogs. I help clients develop their brand and close gaps in their online marketing efforts. The message here is that in order to be talked about, content must be remarkable. Good is far too safe, boring and most often times easily forgotten. Differentiate yourself to your customers. Find the market that is the most profitable. Most companies (unless your toilet paper) do not cater to the masses. You should not be marketing to everyone because it's a waste of time and money. Although, the Internet provides a way to reach a mass market, to say that you should market to everyone is misguided logic. Every business should have a clear understanding of what market they serve- then find out how to reach them. If you're blindly throwing in the fishing line and hoping to catch something, anything...then you're wasting your marketing budget. Your potential clients are all online, and I can help you break through the clutter to find them and capture their attention. I like marketing products with momentum. I like marketing products that really have the potential to catch on. I love working with startups and professionals. If your business needs to be revitalized I can help you with that too. Marketing a remarkable product makes me giddy- but so does figuring out how to make your average product marketable. Some of my clients have contacted me while still in the concept or product development stage- this is a great time to put a team together and bring me in as a consultant to help you put your marketing investment into your product. Some products and services are easy to spread, others are a bit of a challenge. This is where the importance of strategic and tactile marketing and copywriting come in. Your website, product or service marketing decides whether your business hangs in the balance or catches on. Marketing is measurable and risks are necessary but manageable and thus containable. Metrics help you decide what works so you can do more of it. Your entire business can be optimized. Launching a new product or service is much too important to be left to just one person, contact me today and Ill get back to you within a few hours. Thanks, Erin Corral  less

    I am a content editor for a media agency, writing online copy for a range of clients in a whole variety of sectors, from business and finance to travel and marketing. I have worked for this company for one-and-a-half years and before that I gained editorial experience working in Chicago at a Muslim rights advocacy firm and a weekly arts and entertainment newspaper. As such, I am an adaptable writer who is very well organised and able to produce quality content to strict deadlines. My day job involves writing about subjects that do not necessarily appeal to my personal interests and I am always looking to write about subject matter that I feel more passionate about.  less

    If you write – at work, in class, or just for fun – you will benefit from my help. The standard of any piece of writing you produce reflects on you – and, if I’m involved, on me! Whether it’s: • a report, brochure/marketing leaflet, manual or website; • a thesis, dissertation, assignment or research proposal; • an article for a magazine or journal, a book, short story or even a blockbuster of a novel; my proofreading and copy-editing skills will help to ensure that the only thing that stands out is your message. So why use me instead of a colleague, relative or friend? Same reason you no longer let your mum cut your hair around a pudding basin! I’m a Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) with a BA (honours) in English language and literature and an MA (distinction) in literature. I’m also partway through a second BA in politics, philosophy and economics. I worked as a full-time editor for several years before turning freelance in 2009. I’m a native English speaker based in the UK, although I work with US, Australian and non-native English as well. I’ve got a handle on all the main referencing styles – Harvard, Chicago, APA, MHRA, OSCOLA – and can help you put together a house style for your business too. On top of all that, I’m efficient, friendly and flexible, so you don’t have to worry about needing a quick turnaround or chasing me for emails. I’m interested in the same thing as you – top-quality plain English delivered on time and within budget. See? Good writing is a joy to read.  less
