Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $50

I don't just write copy.

I write copy directed to your audience. Copy focused on achieving your objective. Copy that gets results.

I love the power of words. Playing with them is my passion. That's why I'm good at what I do: I'm fascinated by every project. Although I can write and edit just about anything, I'm particularly proud of:

Associated Press style (press releases, articles, etc.):As an editor at a newspaper, one of my pet peeves was PR firms that sent releases in their style - not the industry's. It's critical that you send a...

Service Description

Full-time freelance writer who offers unlimited revisions on all work (it IS your copy after all, I'm just writing it for you!) and timely turnarounds on any project.

Previous 9-5 jobs included seven years as the editor in the marketing department of a major newspaper (editing all the special/advertorial sections, writing and editing creative to include invites, ads, radio, billboards, etc.), a couple of years at a small performing arts venue (writing press releases, Web copy, etc.) and the marketing copywriter at a membership-based billing company (writing everything from children's newsletter stories to software user's manuals).

Previous freelance clients: The Palms Casino, Paiute Golf Courses, MGM MIRAGE, Apple's App Store ... and everything from technology groups that service the military to software businesses and candle companies to convention speakers (and beyond!).

Communication: Readily available by e-mail. Prefer scheduling a phone conversation (I'm a pen-on-paper person, and a tad shy over the phone - like to be prepared for calls).
