    I've been writing professionally since 1992 with a focus on the areas of music, food, travel and health. My writing has appeared in publications such as the Austin Chronicle, Billboard, Uncut, Elmore, Blurt and Pop Culture Press. From 2007 to 2011, I served as Dallas City Editor and Austin Correspondent for go2 Media's local mobile web entertainment guides. From 1993 through 1998, I co-edited and co-published Hey! Hey! Buffet!, a food-oriented fanzine covering all-you-can-eat buffets. The fanzine won two "Best of Austin" awards in 1994 and 1998. In my concurrent role as a Health Communications/Community Engagement Unit team lead at the Texas Department of State Health Services, I do everything from write and edit educational pamphlets, websites, reports and policy briefs to manage media and social marketing campaigns. My career goal for freelance writing is to expand the number of outlets I write for and expand the scope of my writing to new areas of interest. For writing or editing non-bylined items, my goal is to provide clients with clear, concise copy that meets the immediate needs of both the client and the reader.  less

    Previously had over eight years of experience in the education industry and currently looking for transcription work. I am currently a stay-at-home-mom who wants to keep my skills fresh and relevant. Working as a freelancer and transcribing will allow me to do that and be available to my children. While in graduate school, I worked at a law firm for three years where I transcribed a number of legal documents from attorneys. I am comfortable listening to speakers with any accent and able to discern what the speaker is saying by understanding context of the message. Having been an English teacher, my strength is grammar and spelling which will be of a tremendous advantage for my client.  less

    My name is Sophie Ahlberg, and I am highly interested in becoming a freelancer for you. I believe that I would make a great candidate for you who needs help with blogging, creative writing and editing because I have the skills, education, background and personality traits make me a perfect fit for any kind of freelancing work. I am going to graduate with a Bachelor's in Arts on May 15th 2015, with a major in communications & media, as well as a minor in theatre studies. I currently have a part­time job at my school's library, and I volunteer at the “The Electric Company,” which is a school group that promotes diversity at the university. I have been a blogger throughout my college years, and I currently have three blogs, http://golden­trips.blogspot.com/, http://thepoliticalmill.blogspot.com/, and http://gamingsuburb.blogspot.com/, all different blogs featuring categories varying from life as an exchangestudent to political news & events, as well as video games & pop culture. I know the feeling of stress in a chaotic situation, and I thrive in it. It gives me adrenaline, and goes extremely well with my high ambitions, as well as my discipline. This was displayed while I worked as an Intern at our local TV station, NBC26, where I wrote articles, as well as recorded and interviewed different members in politics, including Scott Walker and Paul Ryan. I also got to write and edit articles and memos when I was working as an Elections and research Intern at the National Education Association, where I also helped with research on the different candidates for the 2014 midterm elections. I speak and write in English, Swedish, French and some Spanish It is also be worth mentioning that I have a strong, charismatic and positive personality, and am a great communicator, as well as a great co-­worker with a flexible schedule. It would be an honor to become a freelancer for you. I believe I am qualified for any blogging, creative writing and editing work due to my variety of educational experiences, my unique background as not only awoman, but an international woman, and because of my confident personality. Thank you for your time and consideration, please take the time in viewing my profile. Please contact me for further questions or information. Best Regards, Sophie Ahlberg  less

    I have a bachelor's degree in Commerce, major in Marketing. I began to develop my writing skills in college. I was quite fortunate to have an American priest for our professor in English, who required us to write essays on various subjects ranging from "How I learned to Ride a Bike" to "How a Ballpoint Pen Works" on a weekly basis. I continued to hone my skills when I worked as a program coordinator for two non-government organizations in the Philippines. During my stints, I wrote and was instrumental in the approval and implementation of a good number of project proposals related to community development assistance. My work included profiling communities (demographic and socio-economic data), conducting individual and community interviews, writing proposals that included the estimated budget for each project, facilitating seminars and training, preparing all forms of correspondence, and monitoring the implementation of projects on the ground, among others. I would also write essays and articles on my experiences in the field and submit these for publication on our erstwhile website (tabangmindanaw.org). My proficiency in the English language would be an edge in helping clients prepare concise reports and engaging write-ups. I can also say that editing written material is one of my strongest suits. Moreover, I have been exposed to administrative and secretarial work and could greatly help in record keeping, data encoding, and performing other such duties. I acquired this experience from having worked for an oil and gas joint venture between Chiyoda Corporation of Japan and Technip France (CTJV) in the State of Qatar, and, in the Philippines, for Doosan Construction Co., Ltd., a multinational corporation whose expertise is in power generation (power plants) and water desalination. I love reading in my spare time. Some of my favorite books are "The God of Small Things" by Arundhati Roy, "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao" by Junot Diaz, and "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.  less

    I have been working in the customer service industry for the past eight years, with jobs ranging from hands-on security work to behind-the-desk secretarial work. My strengths - aside from the general customer service blanket - lie within the realm of virtual assistance and data entry. I am skilled and comfortable with Microsoft products (Word, Excel, Access, etc), have an average typing speed of 85 WPM, and am confident in my ability to multitask without interruption or distraction. I enjoy working with people, am always very friendly and positive, and aim to make things as efficient and easy as possible for all involved parties.  less

    I graduated from the University of Puget Sound in 2014 with a Bachelors degree in English Creative Writing. Currently I live in Steamboat Springs, CO where I was born and raised. I have published several poems in small literary magazines in the south Puget Sound area, as well as some short stories. I have experience writing lots of academic work, as well as experience with magazine articles and interest pieces. This fall I was part of a panel at the National Race and Pedagogy Conference where I presented a paper on the short story cycle, and I've recently written an article for Steamboat Magazine. I want to continue my passion for poetry by pursuing a Masters of Fine Arts in Poetry this coming fall. Hire me to help you with my expertise in English, or have me write an amazing article for you.  less
