Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $50

I am a freelance writer living in the DC Metro Area. I studied English and Linguistics in college, so I have a firm grasp of condensing interesting material into a recognizable form.

My clients all rave about me. They love the personalized service that I give. It's very important for me to get to know a company and their product. How else am I supposed to write honestly?

I have a strong background in SEO. Anything I write for the web catches the eye not only of the reader, but also of search engines.

Service Description

My background is pretty diverse, but at this point I have settled down and have realized that I like writing copy. Why? Paradoxically, I feel like it provides a lot more creativity than content writing.

With content all you are really doing is regurgitating the facts. With writing copy you really have to put yourself in the position of the intended reader. What makes your reader tick? What part of the reader will this fulfill?

Here are just a few of the things I have written about:

Alternative keyboards
Horse Racing
Video Games
Historic Preservation
Title and Escrow Services
College Life

If you hire me. You can expect quick, diligent service. I take deadlines very seriously. If you need something by a certain time, you can expect it, completed, when you need it most.
