Service Description

I offer an independent writing and editing service that focuses on the individual needs of a project rather than premeditated expectations.

Unlike many other contractors on Elance, I am not a faceless Ďteamí of suppliers, nor do I play middleman between you and another party. I am a self-employed full-time writer. If you select my services you will liaise with me and only me. The final work that is supplied to you will be that completed by myself and nobody else.

Services I offer include:

Original articles (short and long)
Heavily researched content
SEO copywriting
Rewriting
Academic writing
Business-to-business writing
Ghostwriting
Official correspondence
Blogging
Ebook content
Full editing service
Proofreading service
Continuity checking

PLEASE NOTE: all content is produced manually. I do not use any web-scraping or spinning software, or any other artificial copy producing equipment. Where original web content is required, I am able to use Copyscape to verify all work is unique.


PORTFOLIO

I have included (and continue) to include a number of portfolio samples on this Elance page. Please feel free to have a root around. Whilst these are not directly targeted to your specific project, I hope they give you some idea of my writing style.

Due to non-disclosure agreements, much of my published work has been passed on with all licenses and rights. As such, the majority of these samples have not previously been published, having been generated for the purpose of...
