    A recent college graduate, I am excited to be applying my skills as a writer in a professional context. Not that I am without experience! My passion for capturing ideas and communicating stories began as high school student when I interned and wrote content for The Kansas City Star. This ranged from film reviews, features, editorials, and even ad copy. Moving on to college, I expanded upon my experience by studying both Cinema and Political Science, which exposed me to different traditions of creative and academic writing. Producing plays and videos as well as research papers and journal reviews, I learned how to concisely and effectively communicate in a variety of contexts. I was lucky enough, for instance, to have my undergraduate research selected for publication by an undergraduate journal-Film Matters. In my post-grad experience, I have applied these skills as an assistant at a commercial production agency, where I aided in the development of scripts and client proposals as well a number of other administrative responsibilities. Online examples of my writing can be found in the following places: Though Catalog (a piece I wrote under a pseudonym due to its personal nature) http://thoughtcatalog.com/2011/on-visiting-the-facebook-page-of-a-recently-deceased-person/ Film Matters http://www.filmmattersmagazine.com/2012/08/13/moonrise-kingdom-2012-reviewed-by-kale-hills/ And lastly on my personal blog, where I blend elements of comedy and social commentary. http://kalehills.posterous.com/nitpicking-the-nitpicking-of-vanity-fairs-com-2402 I would love to bring my passion and reliable turnout to your project in whatever it is needed!  less

    I have an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, and I am currently a part-time Fundraising Management student. I have always been a talented writer; at my high school graduation, I was awarded 2nd place in an IODE English essay competition and 3rd place in the IODE History essay competition. My university education further strengthened my written communication skills, as I gained a great deal of experience writing academic papers. My best papers dealt with topics within the realm of ethics. Currently, I am writing articles and conducting interviews for an online magazine, The Mindful Word. My contributions can be seen here: http://www.themindfulword.org/author/erica-roberts/ While most of my past written work has focused on the social sciences, I am open to any writing assignments, as I believe it is important to diversify my skills. I am a quick learner, meticulous, and good at following instructions, so I am confident in my ability to handle new opportunities. Since I started working on oDesk, I have completed press releases, web content assignments, blog posts, tourism articles, educational stories for children, and SEO-targeted articles; I have also proofread the work of others. In addition to my writing skills, I have good research skills and social media knowledge. I recently completed an internship as a research assistant for a special events company.  less

    As a former journalist and freelance writer, I have gained a wide range of skills and experience in many areas of writing and editing. I have a long list of writing projects, which includes blogs, online news and feature articles, online news releases, website content development, editing, enewsletters, proofreading, keyword research, social media, script writing and speech writing. As a reporter first, and then editor of the Arkansas Sun, a countywide newspaper, I reported on everything from the plight of rice farmers to the goings-on at the County Courthouse. Some other past writing experience includes a screenplay that was produced, a monthly print magazine on state volunteerism for the Arkansas governor's office, and speech writing and new law summaries for the Arkansas Senates as their Legislative Information Officer. As Assistant Director of the Arkansas Endowment for the Humanities, I helped develop programs at a grass roots level to bring culture, history and education to adults and children in the state. In addition to my other jobs, I worked with a personal injury attorney for 15 years, negotiating settlements with insurance companies and arbitrators, preparing legal documents, and helping represent the law firm’s clientele. I continue to consult with two law firms concerning their online presence including social media development, online and offline press releases, enewsletters, and blog writing. My passions are elder care, the Arkansas Food Bank, cooking, and organic gardening. I am efficient, organized and dependable. I know that I would be an asset to any business willing to work with me.  less
