Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $27

I have five years of experience writing for a wide variety of audiences including scientists, government officials, the press, and the general public. My work has appeared both online and in print. By writing for different audiences and mediums I am constantly challenged to adapt my style. As a result, I can be brief or long-winded, technical or creative. But above all, I am always professional.

I am currently seeking opportunities to expand my portfolio and take my freelance writing career to the next level. Will you be my next client?

Service Description

I am qualified to write for blogs, websites, newsletters, newspapers, and magazines.

I can write articles, biographies, product descriptions, reviews, how-to, press releases, and opinions.

I have knowledge of the following: nature, conservation, art, music, literature, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, local food, cooking, gardening, hiking, backpacking, camping, and green living.

I also have experience in nature education and public speaking. By working with civic groups, conservation organizations, teachers, and students I have unique insights about how to reach and engage these audiences.

I am an adept graphic designer, trained artist, and hobby photographer. These skills are a good compliment to my writing in that I am often able to provide images and art to accompany the things I write. My first-hand knowledge also gives me the ability to create content about these subjects.
