Freelance writer/editor

United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

A full-time writer and editor since 2001, I have a multitude of experience in writing and editing both on-staff and on a freelance basis. I have advanced Microsoft Word skills, plus experience working in other office platforms, specifically Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. I also am experienced in working with Sharepoint sites and other databases. In my current position as a Medical Editor, I have developed project management skills, often juggling upwards of 20 projects simultaneously, working with team members both in my capacity as an editor and in driving the project toward completion in scheduling approvals, distributing materials and information to team members, scheduling tasks and updating trackers and calendars. In addition I have been a regular working freelance writer since 2004 when I started working regularly with INtake Magazine, the Indianapolis Star’s sister publication. I became INtake’s regular movie reviewer, providing weekly movie reviews until Nov. 2008. I also compiled and contributed to a weekly entertainment review page, managing a team of 3-4 writers to produce weekly TV, CD, book and video game reviews for 3 years. I also provided a variety of other miscellaneous assignments, writing literally hundreds of articles for them from 2004-2008, when their magazine changed focus. I am also an experienced blogger and columnist, both for INtake/indy.com and in other outlets. I started the movie review and commentary site The Film Yap (www.thefilmyap.com) in 2009 with my partner, and we co-manage the site, providing weekly movie and DVD reviews as well as managing a staff of 10 writers, making assignments, writing and editing posts and articles, conducting interviews and running promotional contests and giveaways. I also am primarily responsible for obtaining advertising and collaborating on other promotional opportunities.

Gifted Writer. Passionate Wordsmith.

United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 6

I'm a full-time freelance writer with a passion for words. In my free time I tutor for high school students, teach English to refugees, and volunteer with local nonprofits. I am storyteller. My fiction has won several prizes, including the prestigious National Foundation for the Advancement in the Arts YoungArts Award, The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, and a short film of mine was honored at the National Black Arts Festival. I've written several successful grants for local nonprofits. I'm a speed reader; I average 1100 words a minute. I approach every job (regardless of the format) with a strong sense of story. If something needs to be written, there is inevitably a story to be told. Your business has a story. Your blog is a story. Your family is a story. I have been trained to tell stories in every possible arena. My grants are successful because they harness the transcendent power of narrative. I teach my students to build their essays up-- using the words as bricks in elegant spirals of academic excellence. My ESOL students learn English by telling me the story of their lives-- word by word. Now, I want to help you tell your story. I am primarily here as an e-book and article writer for personal, academic and business needs. However, grant writing is my primary trade and I'd love to pick up some of that work too. I hope we can tell stories together soon.
