    I've worked for O Desk clients for some time now, taking a variety of jobs, and my niche has become editing and proofreading a wide range of materials. The strength of my skills stems from a lifetime of being an avid reader and my extensive experience in writing fluently and effectively in my professional endeavors. I hold a master's degree in experimental psychology and teach part-time at a community college. In the course and scope of my teaching and research endeavors, I produce and edit a great deal of academic writing on a formal and informal basis. I previously worked in a paralegal capacity for over 15 years and did extensive technical writing during that time. Examples of my web-oriented writing may be seen at collegesuccessinsider.blogspot.com . I have worked with computers and a wide variety of software for over 30 years and am a proficient user of Microsoft Office software. I am primarily interested in short-term fixed-rate jobs, but if the right hourly and/or long-term opportunity comes along that fits in with my teaching schedule, I will not rule it out.  less

    If you need writing content that flows naturally from the page and is also creative, correct and professional, you are in the right place! I am dedicated to producing quality work, meeting deadlines and exceeding your expectations. *Native English (American) speaker. *Formally trained - Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Evansville. *Experienced - Sales copy, web content, eBooks, short stories, formal and informal poetry, articles, technical reports, flyers, policy and procedure manuals. I enjoy proofreading, editing and writing. One of my favorite things to do on oDesk is to help writers who are using English as a second language (ESL). I have worked with clients from all over the world both on oDesk and offline. I can also work in UK or Australian English. I also have a background in sales and advertising, and enjoy writing sales copy and customer oriented web content. I have written and edited website pages, flyers, sales letters and other marketing materials. My proofreading is very fast. And I will respect your writing voice while helping you perfect your project. Even the best writers can benefit from a second set of eyes to find mistakes and help clarify content. I do ask that writers be honest about whether they have truly written work that needs edited, or copy and pasted material from somewhere that isn't public domain material. Please don't copy material owned by others that isn't available for public use. I can't (and won't) just juggle the words around to make it original. Writing from scratch is actually easier than trying to completely reword a text to avoid plagiarism. Thank you for viewing my profile, and good luck on all of your oDesk projects!  less
