    Hello, my name is Marissa. I have experience writing about literature at a college level. I wrote many analysis papers on both British and American literature. However, I am looking to expand my horizon to write about many other subjects in an article or blog form as well. I am also able to edit and proofread works for grammatical and spelling errors. After working for a chiropractor's office for just over a year, I have experience with data entry and note taking, and I am able to perform those types of tasks also.  less

    I don't find myself with a lot of time, but I have a special talent in writing prose that is profound, erudite and abundantly clear. If you have a high-value task that requires that special x-factor; the additional 'oomph' to get it across the line from average to exceptional, you can entrust it to me. I have written speeches for many important people, including prominent politicians. I have also contributed language to determinations and communiques from some of the world's highest-profile bodies, including the United Nations and the G20. As a qualified lawyer with a Master's Degree in international law, I have extensive experience in drafting both domestic and international legal instruments (legislation, regulations, treaties and travaux preparatioux). I have also worked as a financial analyst, financial advisor and currently have my own start-up company. I love to write, but am picky with my projects. I have my own style, which I have fine-tuned over more than a decade writing in a private and government context, for Ministers across a range of portfolio areas. If you would like to see a sample of my writing, please contact me. For an honest sample of my work, I include below a link to a second reading speech I wrote for the Australian (Commonwealth) Attorney-General introducing a Bill to the Federal Parliament. This speech was written in two hours and was delivered unedited from my original version. http://www.aph.gov.au/binaries/hansard/reps/dailys/dr240311.pdf (pp 3143-5)  less
