Overview

Service Description

I have over 5 years' worth of experience with a multitude of writing styles and possess the ability to apply this to various types of content. Literature essays are the most scrutinised of all academic work, so you can rest assured that my work will be completely error-free as well as articulate and eloquent.

If you’re after evidence that I can adapt to different kinds of content, look no further than the successful media website I co-founded over three years ago at www.danceyrselfclean.com. I have authored many news and reviews articles and my work has refined my talent for delivering SEO-friendly content with a strong tone of voice. For TSI, I edited and authenticated complex legal and educational content, and my ability to convert complex and unformatted information into manageable and accurate content was particularly useful in this role.

My ambition is always to produce accurate, informative and exciting work without making things complicated. I have a love of language and am more than comfortable proofreading, editing, writing and re-writing content from across the board.
