Service Description

I am a concise and convincing writer who excels at supporting my assertions with cited evidence. My straightforward and persuasive style is ideal for both business and academic writing.

I have ample academic writing experience. Earlier this year an article I co-wrote was published in a peer-reviewed journal (can be read at: http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/acrl/events/national/2011/papers/scary_exciting.pdf). I also wrote an undergraduate thesis (see sample).

Having studied business as a minor in university, I am familiar with the norms and best practices of business communication. I avoid jargon, clichés, and redundancies.

I can write SEO content (e.g, how-to articles, reviews, or blog posts) for a mainstream consumer audience. I have a broad array of interests and enjoy researching and writing about many topics.

I have some proofreading and editing experience. I served as a peer reviewer for the international Library Student Journal, providing written feedback to editors and authors concerning submissions. I have also been paid (via another website) to rewrite an article, for which I received a good review.
