    I am a Humanities graduate with a strong writing background in research based projects, but my passion lies in travel journalism and agrarian studies. During my time in college my focus was Chinese literature and film, as well as modernism and post-modernism in Europe. My professors praised my work for its originality of argument, quality of research, and thoroughness of analysis. While much of my college writing was academically focused, I turned to travel journalism occasionally for enjoyment. This enjoyment has continued after graduation, and to it I have added the study of agrarianism. I now write about the changing face of agriculture in America and how it impacts both urban and rural cultures. I hope to develop a strong, work from home career in writing, transcription, and editing that will afford me the flexibility to care for the needs of children and household responsibilities.  less

    Having recently completed my Masters degree in Literature and Publishing, I have very high standards in both writing and editing. I am an American citizen but have been living in Ireland for the past five years. Therefore, I am well-versed in both U.S. and British spelling conventions. I have professionally edited two novels, one of which is currently in the running for the Screengems novel competition. In addition, I have edited countless short stories and academic papers through assorted anthologies and journals. I have also compiled calls for submission and commissioned various well-known authors. Along with editing, my writing has also been published in both academic journals and as web content articles. I am working towards making freelance writing and editing my full-time career and am interested in gaining experience and forming long-lasting relationships.  less
