Service Description

My forte is creative writing. My poetry has been published in several magazines, including The Baltimore Review, The Lyric, and the Alembic, and on the website www.helium.com, and is forthcoming in The Eunoia Review. I've also self-published two poetry collections, The Account and Mystical Symphony. My book reviews have appeared in Poet Lore and on Helium, and a review is forthcoming in the Used Funriture Review. I'm currently collaborate with a friend on his memoir. I'm available to ghostwrite, collaborate, or consult on poetry and creative nonfiction.

Having graduated summa cum laude from the University of Maryland and received my master's degree from Emerson College with a 4.00 cumulative grade point average, academic writing is another strength of mine.

I'm also experienced in writing general nonfiction--I had a column in my hometown newspaper when I was 15--and web content, having contributed to the reference website Helium for almost six years. A particular area of interest is business writing, which I have experience with from my day job as a research supervisor at a market research firm and about which I wrote a series of articles on Helium.

Moreover, my experience and expertise in these types of writing, in addition to my attention to detail, makes me adept at editing and proofreading them. I help you say what YOU want to say, in the clearest and most effective way possible. I work particularly well with non-native English-speakers.
