Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $9

An experienced online writer, with expertise in news writing, sub-editing and feature work. I pride myself on excellent knowledge of the English language and a distinctive, acerbic style, but am comfortable writing in a journalistic or corporate style.

Service Description

I am highly competent in the fields of copy writing, sub-editing and the research and composition of editorial.

Extensive work for an online motorcycling webzine makes deadline-sensitive news or feature writing second nature, and I have a highly attuned journalist's instinct for finding stories and fact checking. An ability to provide a stream of regular content is bread and butter work for me.

As part of my role at the webzine, I continually updated the site's blog, giving me exceptional knowledge of the upkeep of a blog and promoting content through social media, using Twitter and Facebook.

My related experience with sub-editing, working in a small team, has given me an excellent grasp of the correct use of language and an eye for concise, engaging writing. I am able to provide this service at a high level.

In the past I have provided copy for corporate websites while working in management consultancy, helping to improve the public image of client companies by providing eye-catching and unique website content. I am acutely aware of the need for professional, eye-catching writing in this context and am happy to offer extensive experience in this area.
