    Although I am fairly new to oDesk, I have already written numerous blogs, eBooks, articles and other material for a number of satisfied clients. My writing skills are extremely strong and I have a very natural, flowing style. I believe that thorough research is very important before you even put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard). The secret then is to transfer that research into brilliant copy, something I do exceptionally well. I believe communication is key when it comes to freelance work. If I have a question I am not afraid to ask a client. Please contact me for any writing needs you might have. "Easy reading is damn hard writing." - Nathaniel Hawthorne  less

Encouraging, supportive personality--I'm here for you! "Having Tiffany as my editor was a wonderful experience.

Her feedback was instrumental in polishing my manuscript into the final product it is now." -C. Rosa, author of An Unexpected Hunger (available now on Amazon) "Tiffany's method of kind encouragement made even the most difficult changes...something that I felt I could handle with minimal stress. She found insight into the world and characters I had created that I didn't even know I was missing." -Megan O'Russell, author of The Tethering (releasing fall 2014, Silence in the Library)  less

    As a detail-oriented editor with formal training in editing from the University of Chicago Graham School, I am seeking opportunities to edit and proofread all kinds of content, including web content, marketing copy, book manuscripts, academic journals, articles, and grant proposals. While I have experience in writing, I find that I am most productive in an editing role, and I naturally enjoy this work. In addition to my training in the Chicago Manual of Style, I am familiar with AP style and can adapt to any particular house style guidelines. My editing experience includes academic, technical, and online marketing copy. I have edited grant narratives to be presented to the U.S. Department of Education in STEM areas (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), in addition to collaborating in research on nonprofit grants for the U.S. Department of Justice. As a copy editor for several online-focused content companies, I have edited articles and materials for consistency of style and adherence to SEO strategies. These experiences have involved close collaboration with freelance writers, providing feedback and coaching writers on areas of improvement. In addition to editing monolingual documents, I have edited and proofread English-Spanish translations. For more than seven years, I have worked as a Spanish interpreter and translation proofreader. I have also received training in Trados 2011 and have used this software for translation and editing.  less
