Powerful Content, Lightning Fast Delivery

United States - Last active: 4 hours ago - Tests: 1

Since I was a child, writing has been my passion. Through years of exploring this passion, wielding the powers of the written word has become something that I excel at. To date, I have published four science-fiction novels, managed a personal blog, and have risen to be one of Elance's most well-reviewed freelance writers. Now, I am hoping to continue use my skills and the skills of my team to help others produce original, dynamic content that will enhance the quality and success of their own written material and give them a powerful advantage over their competition. If you are looking for someone willing to work alongside you to produce professional, effective content that stands out in today's increasingly unprofessional world, then I look forward to being at your service!

Expert writer, researcher, editor

Canada - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

I have a B.A. in English literature, a Ph.D. in linguistics from the University of Toronto, and 13 years of experience in academic writing and grant writing. During my academic career I have published 3 articles in top rated academic journals in my field, and 7 more as book chapters and conference proceedings. I have also presented my work at many academic venues, thus having perfected the skill to present any amount of information in a concise, clear, and engaging manner. During my graduate studies, I also regularly wrote grant proposals, and have managed to secure several highly prestigious federal and provincial grants. Over the course of 6 years, I have raised a total of over 130,000$ for my own academic research. My academic experiences have taught me that I genuinely enjoy the process of synthesizing ideas (my own and those of other people) into a compelling narrative. I started working as a freelance writer recently, and have already had experience writing grant proposals for a small non-profit start-up in Toronto, as well as writing and editing a couple of kickstarter projects. I greatly enjoyed this type of work, and look forward to more opportunities to help others with their research and writing needs. I believe that I can effectively apply my curiosity and skills to virtually any field of writing, editing or research.

Captivating Writing. The Proof is in the Words.

United States - Last active: 7 days ago

What attracts readers and compels them to return? Quality, targeted writing, the kind you get from a repeat contributor to Smithsonian and The New York Times as well as custom publications with upscale targeted audiences like Entrepreneur, Private Clubs, National Wildlife, This Old House, American Way.. The Wall Street Journal and dozens of others. Want to save some time? Skip straight to my portfolio. Deep reporting matters. Words matter. Creative storytelling matters. Finding the right voice and the right branding message matter. Those are my passions. Content marketing works, but only if you have great content. I supply captivating content at a comparatively reasonable price that connects and converts. Look at the breadth of story types and writing styles in my portfolio. My travel writing has won a Lowell Thomas Award; my feature magazine story for a nonprofit was a 2014 Folio finalist for best story. I am looking for quality projects. .
