Award winning travel writer and editor. Experience...

United Kingdom - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 5

I specialise in travel writing and marketing for the travel industry. I've won Malta Travel Writer of the year twice, have a weekly newspaper travel column, and edit travel sections for Allied Newspapers. I write brochures and marketing copy for national tourism boards, as well as numerous tour companies and travel websites. Creative, funny, practical, quirky; I can delve into a variety of styles dependent on the project, but I understand that the best writing effectively engages the audience, and subtly delivers the underpinning message of the client. Throughout my work I subtly soft sell the destination or travel product. Rather than bombard the reader with superlatives and cliches, I allow the reader to build their own impressions and convince themselves that a product or destination is amazing. I take huge pride in my work and ability to achieve this. I run a video marketing business (see www.thefatdogs.com) that specialises in the travel industry. I've created promotional videos for national tourism boards and large international clients like the South Africa Youth Travel Confederation, Travlaw, and the LAL group. As well as high quality video production, The Fat Dogs also support clients with video marketing strategies, video hosting, and linking video content with social media. I am also the author of "Sports Source" a guide to developing sport in the UK, and spent two years as editor of a large UK clubbing website. I have extensive experience in wordpress and HTML5, and understand the importance of SEO to all online work. Some current and previous clients: - Allied Newspapers - www.lalgroup.com - World Youth Student & Educational Travel Confederation - South Africa Youth Travel Confederation - Zicasso - Travlaw - Delft Tourism - Planetrail - Offbeat Travel - The Trainline

Website: www.thehealthycopywriter.com The Truth About Diet, Exercise, and Weight Loss An estimated 70 percent of all adults in the United States are overweight or obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That means that in the U.S. alone, 154.7 million adults have a weight problem. Many attempt to follow fad diets, take dietary supplements, or even resort to weight reduction surgeries to lose body fat and change the way they look. But most fail. 2 Things Health and Fitness Content Must Provide These approaches to weight loss can serve as a starting point for people who want to lose weight, boost their metabolism, get in shape, and build muscle. But in order to be successful at weight loss, body transformation, or any muscle-building plan, there are two critical components that need to be part of the content you provide your readers: Education and motivation. Most people who want to lose weight, decrease body fat or build muscle, don’t quite know where to start or what to do. The result is a pattern of yo-yo dieting, weight loss and weight gain, or half-hearted attempts at progressive muscle building and weight-loss workouts. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Evidence-Based Content for Everyday Readers From a content perspective, if you want to tip the scale in the right direction and really help people achieve their health and fitness goals, you need high-quality, educational, engaging, and content-rich information blended with a little motivation to help them stay in the fight, keep trying, and put in the effort to make lasting lifestyle changes. Season that with evidenced-based research on diet and exercise, and your followers will keep coming back for more. Hire Me My name is Evan Jensen. I have a master’s degree in journalism and more than a decade of experience as a reporter, editor, and freelance writer for newspapers, magazines and corporate clients. As a kid, I watched my obese parents try every diet in the book without success, and resolved not to take the same path. I’ve finished 30 plus marathons and ultra-marathons, including a 100-mile mountain endurance run. And I’ve written thousands of articles in my writing career, including many about diet, exercise, fitness, nutrition, chronic disease, and preventive care. If you have writing or editing needs for articles, e-books, blogs, newsletters, press releases, feature stories, Q&As, case studies, marketing campaigns, or anything else, give me a shot at delivering high-quality content and making a good first impression. - Evan

Experienced editor, proofreader, and writer

United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 4

I am an experienced editor ready to help any writer find their own voice. I am a native English speaker and an accomplished researcher, writer, and editor. I have a firm grasp of the mechanics of English, and I study often to constantly refresh and refine my understanding of various writing styles and grammatical rules. As a professor, I teach writing intensive humanities and history courses, so editing student essays and research papers is my daily work. I strive to provide for my student writers and for my oDesk clients an effective creative process that relies on both writer's and editor's attention to detail. I promote getting maximum impact within rigid word-count parameters. I am a published author and my work can be viewed in academic journals and the online arts magazine found at KCMetropolis.org.

My work in the arts has fostered a colorful and vibrant writing style that can be tailored to most any subject and any requirement. Thanks for considering me as a partner on your projects!

I was responsible for the review of all public materials to ensure consistency in messaging and presentations made publicly at various meetings taking place each week. Additionally, I managed the education and partnership outreach statewide for the High-Speed Rail project to ensure that the Authority was reaching all communities throughout the state and not just those associated along the project line.
