Hello All, I am a freelance writer with more than 5 years experience as an eBook and Blog writer. Being able to write to make ends meet is one of the best things that happened to me because writing is not just a profession, it is my passion. I have written more than 50 eBooks and 700 odd articles/blogs till date. I am eager to take up this opportunity to spread my wings in terms of new clients and subjects. I personally feel my true calling is in the field of self improvement, food, nutrition, health and fitness, mental health and well being, lifestyle, relationships,debt and credit cards, fashion, and finance but I am open to other challenges as well. Hope you hire me for projects where you feel I can do justice and I will do everything possible to deliver results for the faith you show in me. Thanks and Regards Anuja

Creative Writer

United States - Last active: 9 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 3

I'm an aspiring novelist trying to break into the freelancing world. While I'm still working to build my professional portfolio and can't yet boast a wide range of experience, I believe I can more than make up for this in my enthusiasm, dedication, and willingness to learn. I've taken a variety of college courses in writing (including screenwriting and creative writing) and illustration, and continue to participate actively in creative writing groups on my own time in order to hone my skills. Similarly, I have years of experience auditioning and working in amateur voice over productions. While the parts I have been cast for have been unpaid, they've given me invaluable practice in developing a unique set of character voices. My specialty in writing has always been developing interesting and well-rounded characters, while my most polished illustrative style can be described as cartoon. I deal mostly in pen-and-ink or purely digitally crafted styles, and as such am fairly well acquainted with Photoshop.

United States - Last active: 5 days ago - Tests: 5

I'm a stay at home mom to 2 fantastic kids. They are the reason I signed up here and started working from home. I am a graduate of Bridgewater College with a Bachelor of Science Degree in the field of Health Science. While attending college, I worked for the English Department. I proofread term papers for other students and corrected grammatical errors, punctuation errors, and made suggestions on how they could expand and improve their writing. I have been editing and proofreading for others in both a professional and educational capacity for several years. I am able to edit and expand language if necessary. I am great at expanding existing content. I also have an eye for spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors. I'm a serious bookworm and love reading! I enjoy fiction novels in all different genres.

Seeing poorly written English is like nails on a chalkboard to me. I enjoy creative writing, food blogging, and generally coming up with witty one-liners on social media. Professionally, I hold a B.A. in Communications as well as a TEFL certificate to teach English as a foreign language. I taught English at the university level for 3 years, have 4 years proofreading and transcription experience in documentary script writing, and have completed innumerable one-off assignments over the last 15 years. I look forward to making your next project the best it can be!

My name is Cody Dalton, I'm a twenty year old aspiring author. I write short stories and flash fiction for my blog, but my goal is to get paid more regularly for my writing. I've worked a lot of jobs, but now I'm ready to follow my passion - it just seems sometimes life has a different timeline! I'm exceptional at taking something and making it better, I love editing. Meanwhile, everyone else would rather skip it. That's okay. Give me a rough draft and I can not only correct spelling and grammar mistakes, but I can also offer creative guidance for more effective communication. If what you're writing doesn't feel 'right' for some reason, let me have a look and I will do the laboring to make it work. I have a vast range of knowledge and can write on any subject. I can, and will, research in-depth. Nothing bugs me more than someone that pretends to know what they are talking about. Either I 'get' it, or I don't write about it. An example would be this article I wrote for WikiHow and received a rising star for: http://www.wikihow.com/Be-a-Critical-Thinker With the right tools and motivational compensation, I am more than capable of ghost writing as well. I write every single day. I write fiction, and I write non-fiction. When I take up a job like this, it is as though I'm writing for myself. I get very detail oriented and won't settle until it is the best I can manage.
