Writer, Editor, Content Manager

United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 6

I excel in the creation of content. I'm available to write professional materials, such as manuals, notifications, and emails, in addition to creative work, like short stories, plays, and novels. The same holds true for my editing expertise--I am a content manager by profession, which means I edit technical manuals, contracts, and the like, but I'm also pursuing a master's degree in creative writing, so fiction is a major facet of my life. Finally, I'm tech-savvy and web-smart. I know my way around WordPress; I can tweak your work for SEO; and I created and published an article every day for 19 weeks for Geek Smash, a geek news website, in addition to editing the articles of our entire writing team. In short, I'm your guy. When do we get started?

Nonprofit 501c3 Tax Exempt Status: Idea to Realit...

United States - Last active: 15 days ago - Tests: 4

I am author of the Do Your Own Nonprofit 51-book state series and Nonprofit Touchdown: Winning the 501c3 Game Against IRS. Also founder of Pasture Valley Children Missions and Owner of Chalfant Eckert Publishing, a traditional publisher with hybrid qualities allowing authors to keep their rights and royalties while enjoying world-class publishing services. I can take your idea for a nonprofit organization, even if it is only an idea, and turn it into a reality quickly. The paperwork and process are intimidating, but not to me. Let me help you get it finished so you can get to the mission you are on to make the world a better place! I put my rates in at $50 an hour. For new U.S. nonprofits less than 27 months old with annual revenue this minute of less than $50,000 and assets less than $250,000, that hourly rate translates to 2 hours total for the state and federal paperwork. The exception is for schools, hospitals, churches. That paperwork is much more involved and will require a closer look and a conversation to come up with what is fair and gets the job done. In any case, I am fair, reasonable, know what I am doing, don't waste my time or yours, and provide quality work. Are you are writer? Want to know your actual publishing potential? Need a ghostwriter, content or developmental editor, copy editor or proofreader, publicist? Chalfant Eckert Publishing has them all at a fair price for GREAT work. Some of our authors have been publicized into Best Seller status and have made appearances on national syndicated talk shows. We are good at what we do, we have to be. I own the company and I won't settle for anything less! LOTS of references available upon request for nonprofit services and publishing, including attorneys. What are you waiting for? It is time to get started!

Writing and Communications

Netherlands - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 5

I'm a writer and communications professional with more than ten years experience. I also use improvisation as a tool to help businesses and professionals improve their presentation skills, boost creativity, strengthen communications and even increase productivity. I'm an award-winning playwright, and my first solo show 'Roman Around' had a successful Edinburgh run in 2010 and 2011. I'm currently turning the first five years of my blog 'Roads to Rome' into a book. My professional writing experience includes copywriting, feature journalism, web content development and management, script writing and social media strategy. After years of working in different countries and languages I have a finely tuned intercultural understanding, and decent language skills (proficient Italian, intermediate French, basic Dutch). I hold an MA in Professional Writing from London Metropolitan University, a BA in Communications and a Certificate in Sustainable Community Development from Simon Fraser, and a Certificate in Acting for Stage and Screen from Gastown Actor's Studio.
