Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $16

Since I could scribble, I've been honing the writing craft. I've written several reports, articles, blog entries, about pages, and academic papers that have been published, as well as several short stories and poems both for fun and for practice.

I am a skilled, media-literate researcher, and I am trained in the use of the latest versions of Word and Excel. I am focused, timely, and analytical in my work and personable, professional, and readable in my writing.

I am nontraditional college student who is experienced in the craft. I...

Service Description

I generally charge around $14-15 (USD) for one hour's worth of work. After the Elance markup, the total billed to an employer is about $16 per hour.

What constitutes an hour of work largely depends on the type of work to be done: projects requiring research and projects requiring creative writing often take longer than standard content writing. On the other hand, rewriting, ghostwriting, and proofing are obviously much quicker and easier to complete.

I can offer several services: content and article writing, research gathering and reporting, fiction writing, creative consulting, poetry writing, songwriting, proofreading, and ghostwriting.

I have a great deal of experience with creative writing, including extensive, college-level training in character development, plot arcs and twists, and dialogue. I've won multiple creative writing awards and have had many of my nonfiction articles and papers published.
