    Greetings, prospective client! My name's Warren Hinckle, and I'm an editor with a knack for the written word, how the English language flows on the page, for writing - and I've even dabbled in transcription. More than that, I enjoy all of this. Seriously. If I didn't I'd ditch freelancing as a career and try to get a stable job with things like 'security' and 'benefits' and 'fair wage' and 'pay by the hour' and all of the other joys of normal work. I'm sure you want to see some qualifications: I received a B.A. in English - my concentration was writing - from Loyola University New Orleans in 2012. I also minored in Philosophy. You can probably tell that the skills I learned during my academic career involve writing, reading, more writing, and editing. I've been editing for a few years now - much more frequently the last six months - and it doesn't seem I'll grow tired of it anytime soon. What's my turn-around like? It depends on the project - but I aim for 48 hours at the latest. If you absolutely need it rushed, I can do 24. I'm just going to throw some prices over here. I've found there's a disconnect in what people say they want from an edit and what they actually want, so it seems important. Proof-reading! I'll go through your article, fix your grammar, make little improvements, make little comments asking for clarity here and there, and so on. This is not a huge edit; this is when you want a second pair of eyes for a quick read. Proof-reading is .40 cents per 100 words; there is no limit on the size of the piece (a thousand words, five thousand, fifty thousand - same price). It's $6.00 by the hour. Editing! I don't have a light / heavy division; I just edit. I'll fix your grammar and your syntax, cut out every unneeded word and sentence, make comments, make suggestions, and generally tear into your writing with so much vigor you might think I have something against it. Editing is .80 cents per 100 words - and comes out to $12.00 an hour. The price is a bit negotiable; if you can promise a constant flow of work, I wouldn't be against going down a bit. What about writing? A dollar per 100 words. It's is negotiable! What about transcription? I aim for around $0.75 per audio minute - much like writing, that is also negotiable!  less

    I live in Barcelona, Spain, where I work as a part-time copywriter for a local tour company. I wrote more than 80 pages of copy for the site's recent redesign and relaunch. I also oversee the company's social media campaign, which includes Twitter, Facebook and Google+. In addition to Barcelona Experience, this past year I've run social media campaigns and blogs for two different American companies. I'm also a news reporter for Snooth.com, a job in which I write 20 400-word articles in a 12.5-hour work week. From 2010 to 2012, I was a reporter at The Villages Daily Sun newspaper, the fastest-growing newspaper in America. I was a three-time finalist in the Florida Press Club's Excellence in Journalism contest. This past November, I won first place in Class B light features and second place in Class B health writing. Previous to the Daily Sun, I spent two years as a staff writer for the marketing department at Southeastern University. I oversaw the school's student intranet, I wrote ad and web copy, and served as the lead writer on several projects. I worked with Adobe Dreamweaver and an in-house CMS.  less

    My name is Cara-Marie Findlay. If you are looking for a passionate and fiercely competitive freelance writer that can adapt to various styles, topics, and most importantly your needs, then look no further! I also like P.I.E.E (more on that below). I am an alumna of the University of Florida where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree. I majored in English and minored in Business. I value clear and concise communication, whether written or verbal. I also recognize the importance and esteem creative marketing and public relations campaigns because of their ability to motivate people to action. My experience includes working with and writing/proofreading/editing for a digital marketing firm, published authors, the music industry, and non-profits. Details of these different contract jobs/projects include: Writing articles on various topics that were featured on blog sites with a Google Page Rank of 3 or higher. Developing social media marketing strategies and campaigns for a children's book titled "The Adventures of Ajalon and Kayla: The Emerald Globe" and published author and radio host Lana Reid. Performing structural editing and proofreading on the self improvement book "Go Get It" by author Ciara Elle. Working as a lead proofreader on a major supermarket account at PureRED (a digital marketing firm). Creating press releases and media kits for musical artists. Developing content, marketing material, and sales literature for ad sales for Oh BRIDES (a luxe wedding magazine). Writing bios for authors. Creating informative literature for the Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) and the National Science Foundation's UF Gender Grant. Developing educational Bible-based literature and lessons for use in Bible studies and children's church. I operate using four core values (P.I.E.E.) - Partnership - I am committed to becoming thoroughly acquainted with you and your project needs. I will dedicate the necessary time and writing skills/services to ensure that those needs are met. Ingenuity - I am committed to creativity, thinking outside the box and going beyond what is typically expected. Excellence - I value integrity and am a woman with uncompromising integrity. Why? Because my contribution to your project and any other stands to affect much more than simply making a good name for myself. Thus, I am committed to providing you with top of the line service and a product of the highest quality. Effectiveness - I am committed to maximizing your opportunity to engage with stakeholders and decision makers by offering clear, concise, effective and efficient communication. I am as comfortable with print as I am with online writing. As a writer, I am deeply invested in effective communication and public relations. As a human being, I am keenly interested in service. I treasure each contract job/project because each one has provided me with unique experiences. I have had opportunities that included serving as a liaison with news media, information services and local government to planning, promoting and implementing a wide range of events, from fundraising functions to service activities that benefited the community. I keep a personal blog under the name Cara Naan using WordPress and I have plans to one day publish books, starting with a poetry collection, also using that name Cara Naan.  less

    I'm a professional freelance proofreader/copyeditor with three years of editing experience and excellent feedback from all my clients. I am a native English speaker with excellent spelling, grammar, and attention to detail. I believe that tone and euphony are two of the most important things in any written work: clumsy, awkward writing and uneven diction can ruin the impact of even the most serious subject matter. In recent years, I have also developed my skills as a programmer. I am familiar with a number of languages, including Visual Basic, ActionScript 3, and Haxe, though I am most comfortable with programming in Python.  less

    Be confident that your written content needs will be engaging, thought-provoking and original. With my professional and moderately priced freelance services, I guarantee open communication, utmost client satisfaction and deadline adherence. Quality is paramount when it comes to my written work and I have been perfecting my craft for approximately 8 years. My love for writing began back in high school, where I was mentored and nurtured by my wonderful English teacher. Since then, I write as a hobby, professionally and academically; with a dash of specialized tutoring and teaching. For a year, I volunteered with AmeriCorps to expand literacy rates in Florida. Currently, I manage my own travel/ food blog and hold a BA degree in Psychology, from a New York state school. Additionally, I am halfway through my MA program where I will graduate with a Higher Education Administration degree. Afterwards, I plan to work towards a PhD. That being said, I am extremely comfortable with research and academic writing. Moreover, I am fluent in both MLA and APA citation, as required when I was a Writing Center Tutor at my alma mater. I would be most suitable for blogging pursuits, content creation, academic writing, research, article writing, editing, creative writing, data entry and email response positions. Please see my portfolio below for current examples of my work. Upon request, I can send additional samples if necessary. Before project commencement, I am delighted to interview should you need to gather any further information about myself or my work. Looking forward to working with you, Kim  less
