    Don’t let the title mislead you. As the Merchant of Words, I’m not related to the Merchant of Venice. To be honest, Shakespeare never appealed to me. Neither did academics. Thus, I just about managed to complete my schooling – or let’s just say that my teachers got fed up of me. After all, I was an immense strain on their conscience. It couldn’t have been easy deciding where I deserved fractional marks for an answer i.e. a 0.3 here or a 0.6 there etc., could it? Suffice it to say that my academic success in school resembled a village after a Mongol raid. A few years later, I began working as a software developer. In that time, I learnt that I could create software for an accounting system. Considering that all I knew about accounting was the definition of debit and credit, it was an educational achievement on the job. I also learned how to travel to various parts of the city. An online job that taught me several offline things! Later, I found myself applying for an executive position to answer e-mail queries sent by Amazon.com’s customers. However, the powers that were thought I was a glutton for punishment. Therefore, they made me a Quality Editor instead. I handled the responses for the escalation e-mail queues. I also trained and audited e-mail responses for 15 executives. A relocation ended this brief but enlightening dalliance. My next assignment was as a back office executive in insurance processing. I processed transactions related to insurance cover. In some time, my supervisors realised that my innocent smiles (certainly not my good looks!) lay behind all their troubles. So they gave me charge of a team, of a process and of a client relationship too. From indexing scanned images of insurance claims related post to recovering money from at-fault third parties, my team did it all. Sadly, they also did me in… I finally turned to becoming a freelance content developer: writing about things I hadn’t heard of or seen, for clients I hadn’t ever seen (or ever would, for that matter!) at places I didn’t even know existed. After such an extensive background, can I really write? Well, in over 16 years of experience that is the only thing I’ve done. See how: • As a software developer, I WROTE computer programs and manuals • As a quality editor, I WROTE e-mails and responses • As an executive in back office processing, I WROTE manuals, desktop procedures and white papers • As a team leader, I WROTE policies, manuals, emails, white papers etc. • As a content developer, I WRITE articles, blogs, website content, product descriptions etc. So what’s common across: softWare – auditOr – data-entRy – team leaDer and writing Stuff fulltime? The answer is simple: All of them deal in WORDS…that express what needs to be done in the best way possible…  less

    I moved from Wisconsin to New York City after I graduated from university with my B.A. in history. My work background includes multiple non-profit groups, including the World Council of Churches, where I served in their United Nations offices and advocated for policies in the areas of women’s rights and human rights. This work demanded strong communication skills, including writing, editing, and public speaking, as well as a strong knowledge of communicating with appropriate levels of formality. Later, I received a full-scholarship to attend Columbia University with Union Theological Seminary for a three-year program of study. During this time, I took courses at the Foundation Center to improve my grant writing skills. I subsequently served as the leader of a humanist community in Brooklyn for three years. In this position, I gave public lectures in the areas of history, philosophy and ethics in addition to writing curriculum on ethics for children ages 2-15. I am certified by the University of Cambridge to teach English, and I am currently completing my Master of Education degree in education. COPYWRITING & EDITING: I have experience writing copy for websites, newsletters, book chapters, and grant applications. In addition, I have experience with writing and editing extensive academic papers and documents ranging in length from 500-25,000 words. I am very comfortable writing with APA, Chicago/Turabian, and MLA style citations. WEDDINGS: I've performed hundreds of weddings in one of the most diverse cities int he world: New York City. I have experience with and opinions on everything from ceremonies to officiants, venues to caterers and decorations. I can write you a personalized ceremony or write for your wedding blog. ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE - APPROACH TO TEACHING: Together, we will create structured and realistic learning goals through an initial assessment and ongoing monitoring of progress. I strive to empower my students with lessons organized around specific themes and which develop skills holistically through student centered lessons. I focus on both productive skills (speaking & writing) as well as receptive skills (listening & reading) while seamlessly integrating learning of language systems, including grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, functions and discourse. I incorporate a range of interesting activities that move from controlled practice to a freer practice and follow every session with helpful feedback on both correct and incorrect language usage.  less

    The Short Story: I am looking for writing and voice work. I am educated in creative writing and willing to work with different genres/types. As a flight attendant, I use my voice a lot and would love to work with you on voice acting. I have a good microphone and experience using Audacity. The Long Story: I'm an aspiring writer based in Maryland when I'm not busy soaring through the skies with my day job as a flight attendant. I graduated in May of 2011 with a B.A. of English with a focus in Creative Writing from California University of Pennsylvania. While I am open to accepting almost any kind of work, I have the most experience in creative fiction writing and planning, writing dialogue, script writing for plays (and am currently working on learning script writing for television and film), and video game writing. I have some experience writing speeches (from participating in Forensics/Debate Club in high school as well as working as a Representative to the Athens Area School Board). I have limited public relations experience and am interested in being a copywriter as well. As far as voice work goes, again I lack portfolio experience, but I use my voice very regularly during my day job as a flight attendant. I am often told how clear and understandable my voice is, and I would love to turn that into a second job as a voice actor. Whether you need voice overs and narrations or the voice for a character from a game, I am willing to lend my talents to you! I joined oDesk in hopes of finally getting my of feet in the door of the writing and publishing world. My goal is to build a portfolio and further my abilities and techniques in different genres and kinds of writing. I see this as the first step to possibly returning to grad school. Since I do not have much in the way of a portfolio at this time, I will be more than happy to do sample projects to show my abilities to prospective employers. I have a very flexible thanks to my day job and will have absolutely no trouble meeting deadlines. I am always open to constructive criticism with my work and look forward to building professional connections for life. My rates are negotiable, too.  less

    I am an experienced corporate professional (with military experience as a junior officer) that possesses strong organizational, writing and analytical skills. I have a Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) from Texas A&M University - Kingsville and was a member of the Army ROTC program where I was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army upon graduation. I spent 4 years as an Army officer and have a depth of knowledge of military writing style, jargon and acronyms. I have spent the past seven years working for a Fortune 100 company (railway transportation) and the past 3 years have been spent working as an administrative director for the largest division in my company (4000 employees) where I created formal responses and letters to upper management within my company, labor organizations we work with, individual employees as well as members of surrounding communities our company operates in. I have also traveled abroad (Russia, Cyprus, Spain, Germany, Armenia, Hungary, Austria, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Iraq, Oman, Pakistan, Mexico and Canada) and understand various cultures around the world. My position also required that I become the resident expert regarding the organized labor contracts that existed within my company. At any given time, I have been required to work with employee work groups that have five different labor contracts among them, each with specific work, pay and discipline requirements. I was responsible for editing a bi-monthly newsletter sent out to our employees, the web content for our division website and the weekly broadcasts that were sent via internal television channels. I also have extensive experience reviewing transcripts from disciplinary investigations within my company. My position as director of administration also made me an informal assistant to the general manager for my division (a railroad GM is equivalent to a vice president in most other companies) and performed tasks for him such as managing his calendar and travel plans, writing letters and emails on his behalf and representing him at meetings.  less
