Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $14

Words wake me up in the morning. Single ones, strings of them, some that hang in the air, like the shapes of fireworks in smoke in the August sky. Words have led me through my life. I have a BA in English, writing minor, and an MFA in Creative Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts, still the top low-residency MFA program in the US. I currently design and write PR/marketing material for Seacoast Roller Derby and teach Creative Writing online.

Service Description

While I comfortably write on a huge variety of subjects and employ various writing styles, I particularly enjoy features, academic papers, and writing on pop culture and style/fashion. I realize that's a varied mix, but I think of myself as a collection of seemingly contradictory traits, and that has served me well in life. My natural style is a little edgy, infused with colorful vocabulary and a conversational feel. I also love to edit/proofread, helping someone else best express his/her own message in the best words possible. If you need writing with some personality, I'm the girl for you.

I am also a graphic designer, particularly text-heavy flyers, booklets, and posters. I wrote and designed a brochure booklet for a local high school to advertise their exchange program in China, and I currently design PR and marketing materials for my local roller derby league.
