    No matter what the writing or editing task, I can do it. From crafting a business proposal, to creating and editing content for your blog, I have done it all. I have an Honours Degree in Rhetoric and Professional Writing from the University of Waterloo, and years of personal and professional writing experience. Some of my professional experience includes drafting, and editing correspondence for the Government of Ontario. Also, I led or was involved in many projects at Clarica (now Sunlife), including Clarica’s Contribution Report, the Internal Communications’ site, and Brand Team tasks. Personally, I love to write short stories, flash fiction, and poetry. I also write my own blog at mommypatter.com, and have started my own freelance writing business at 8menwriting.com. My goal is to write full time as a freelancer before my son starts school next year. So far, I am trying to find that all importance balance between work and home life.  less

    I've been writing for over five years, both as a personal means of expression, as well as contracted freelance work. Over that time, I have completed numerous short stories, penned articles for social media and satire blogs and websites, and have written and edited chapters for various authors. Within fiction, which is my main area of focus, I write intense, emotional scenes to great effect, as well as dark humour. I write literary fiction and sci-fi, for the most part, but I also have experience in romance and erotica. Other creative work has included satire, emotional wellness blogging, social media how-to columns, and well-researched, informative articles on a vast range of topics. I am fortunate to have the opportunity this year to study an honours degree in Creative Writing through Wits University, during which I hope to perfect my writing style, as well as gain experience from interaction with and feedback from experts in the South African writing community. In addition to my own creative work, I am skilled at recognising and differentiating good writing from bad. I will utilise these skills to edit, critique and provide expert recommendations to ensure your work meets the high standards required for unqualified success. Within the corporate field, I write engaging copy for businesses and entrepreneurs, which provides information and guidelines, while maintaining the reader's interest and keeping them entertained when appropriate. Over the course of an honors degree in Psychology - including experience with group therapy and trauma counselling - I have gained great insight and perspective into human nature. This is a major strength in my writing. I write realistic characters and bring clarity and insight into stories, whether fiction or non-fiction. Overall, I'll produce work which is of a very high quality, in terms of writing style and content. Thanks for reading!  less

    If you need reliable, affordable and exceptional services, then you've arrived at the right profile. I offer: proofreading & editing, writing & online research, reporting/journalism, transcribing, and social media management. I am fully committed to each task that I take on. My highest priority is that you, as the client or collaborator, are completely satisfied with the end result. I ensure: ✔ Accuracy, clarity, and attention to detail ✔ Prompt and straightforward communication ✔ Quick turnaround without compromising on quality I am available for both short and long-term projects. Please feel free to contact me for any queries or if you are ready to receive dedication & excellence. Look forward to working with you! _________________________________________________________________________________ [EDUCATION, BACKGROUND & EXPERIENCE] I graduated with a Bachelor of Journalism from Rhodes University, South Africa. ✪ Specializations: Writing & Editing and New Media. ✪ Academic Major: English Literature. ✪ Intensive course: Web Design & Development. ✪ Others: French 1&2, Modern Fiction, and English Language & Linguistics. Due to my location, many people are doubtful about my language skills. However, I have been verified as a native English speaker (with expert status) by the Duolingo Test Center; I grew up with US English and was educated in UK English, so I can easily work with both. I've collaborated with numerous British, North American and Australian clients, from whom I’ve received excellent feedback. I have worked with a variety of individual professionals; startups and small businesses; private firms and consultancies; large companies and organizations such as the United Nations; and several NGOs & NPOs. From these experiences, I have gained the following skills and expertise. _________________________________________________________________________________ [SERVICE DESCRIPTION] *Proofreading & Editing* High-quality writing is invaluable. No matter what I provide—proofreading, copy-editing, content editing, or line editing (heavy editing)—I guarantee error-free work. Not only do I correct spelling and grammar, but I also ensure consistency in style, tone, and structure. Additionally, if necessary or required by you, I rephrase/rewrite sentences. Each punctuation mark, word and paragraph is carefully reviewed for readability; and I always keep your target audience in mind when proofreading and editing. I have worked on various texts: • Government bids, grants proposals, and corporate documents; • Academic works (essays, dissertations, theses); • Scientific articles and papers (published in PNAS), and technical reports; • Ebooks and printed books; • Websites, blog posts, and social media marketing materials; • Business plans and presentations; • CVs, resumes and personal statements; • Catalogues, emails, letters, and more. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Writing* I can research and write on almost any subject, for both online and offline platforms: news articles; blog and social media posts; emails, letters, marketing materials, etc. I usually don’t offer ghostwriting services. My written work has been published on global platforms such as a United Nations blog, United Press International, and Deutsche Welle. My articles have also been printed in numerous publications like Down To Earth (Indian magazine), The Lowvelder (South African newspaper), and several local newsletters. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Transcribing* I provide either a verbatim or clean transcript, and can transcribe almost any accent in English: American, Canadian, British, Indian, Australian, South African, and more. I have transcribed a range of audio and video recordings: journalistic interviews, focus group discussions (with up to 9 speakers), private counselling sessions, advertisements, and so forth. The transcriptions are always double-checked for accuracy. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *Social Media Marketing* I currently manage multiple social media accounts for individuals and companies. I post regular, consistent, and carefully researched updates on social networks; monitor relevant online conversations and trends; and respond to and interact with fans & customers. I am familiar with online marketing, as I was a semi-finalist in the 2012 Google Online Marketing Challenge (GOMC). My colleague and I launched an AdWords campaign for a website, which led to a 35% increase in site visitors.  less
