Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $35

I'm a young, passionate freelance writer and teacher. I specialize in all things politics, humor, pop culture, young adult, and fun.

My writing style is engaging and confrontational, but maintains a lightness that keeps the reader laughing at the intensely quotable quips. I'm especially good at taking complex concepts and simplifying them for mass consumption. My blogs on mainstream politics and sociopolitical issues (race, feminism, LGBT+ issues, religion, etc.) have attracted recurring audiences in the tens of thousands. My work has...

Service Description

I have a Bachelor's Degree in English from Queens University of Charlotte (May 2012). I have three years of experience producing intelligent, original content for digital outlets.

My goal is to work with you to help your project come to life. Some people are masters of ideas and others are masters of form, and your project shouldn't have to go uncompleted simply because the nuts and bolts part isn't running smoothly. Allow me to help you complete it.

My work is creatively geared toward SEO, user engagement, and community building.

I can write on just about any subject as long as the material you want to create is designed to be easily digestible to a mass audience.

I specialize in timely articles. Is there a story in the news that you'd like to take advantage of to drive people to your website? I'll find a way to tie an about it in to your product and service, and I'll do it in a way that keeps the reader engaged and entertained enough to form a connection with your product. Therefore, I do not consider what I do to be copy-writing, as copy-writing can be inorganic and robotic. What I do is professional-style blogging.
