My experience Includes:

Weekly blog postings for CEOs
Social Media for real estate recruiting company
Product descriptions for online surf apparel retailer
SEO for online consignment shop
Ghostwriting for a food distributor
Writing press releases for a nonprofit production company
Writing and publishing 100+ product reviews per day for ecommerce site

What I do for you:

Don't have a house style of choice? I'll pick the guide most appropriate for your piece (Chicago, APA, AMA, etc) and build a style sheet to guarantee consistency for your future writing.

When Copyediting: In addition to everything listed above, I then read your writing as a reader, not an editor, to make sure it's clear and cohesive. I may suggest rearranging sentences and paragraphs where needed. I may suggest...
