Every word is a drop of blood. Every phrase is a piece of the heart. Every sentence is a part of the soul.
Every time I write, the article doesn’t only take a bit of me but gets my all. It represents who I am and what I always strive hard to achieve – excellence.
I am from a family of writers. I was raised surrounded by everything related to publications. Thus, I was trained to always be concise and precise, but without neglecting deadlines.
I became the Editor in Chief of our locally-based publication before I moved to Orlando, Florida. It was not because we own it but because I earned it. I was a lay out artist, a journalism professor and a newspaper correspondent of a national daily newspaper. I received various writing awards. I also served as the Editor in Chief of our University Publication during my undergraduate. I attended international and national creative writing seminars and workshops in the process of completing my masters degree in Creative Writing.
Compelling and Passionate Writing
I can write in any field whether it is Academic, Creative, Technical or Journalism. I accomplish jobs with brevity but always considering the five most important qualities of good writing; focus, development, unity, coherence and correctness.
Here are the specific services I can provide in the following fields:
-Any writing exercises a teacher might require
I can even do a teacher’s job like writing lesson plans, course outlines, examination /test questionnaires, power point presentations and so much more. This is because I was a College professor and a High School teacher.
-Fiction - Short stories
-Non Fiction - Essays,Biographies,Memoir,
Literary Account of Places and Events
-Play- Screen play and Stage play
I am willing to adjust my writing style to let your own voice stand out. I will be your background to place your business in the limelight it deserves.
I am a craftsman. I discover better ways to craft copy. I read an article all the way through and take nothing for granted. But I always respect story ownership so, I am more of your partner than a show off who makes you feel inferior. My accomplishments reflect your accomplishments.
I have an adept experience of editing the following:
Innovative and Creative Lay Outing
With nine years of continuous newspaper lay outing, I became an expert in Adobe Page maker and swiftly becoming proficient in Adobe InDesign. I also do lay out for brochures, cards, flyers, magazines, tarpaulins, invitations for special occasions etc.
Accurate and Natural Translation
I can clearly translate any English academic, technical and creative articles/document to Filipino and vice-versa.
I already translated in Filipino some of the poems of the first Filipina poet to publish a poetry book in English, Angela Manalang Gloria.
The translation has a very good review from a professional critic.
