Service Description

In college and the jobs I've had post-college, I gained experience writing and editing literary articles and analyses as well as creating original writing pieces, including poems, short stories and scripts.

I would be wiling to create a fictional writing piece that meets specific guidelines or criteria.

I could also use my experience to analyze and critique existing works or to create non-fictional, research-based articles.

I'm also prepared to provide resume advice and editing, speech/presentation editing and advice, as well as general editing and proofreading for any kind of written works.

I'm comfortable translating documents from Spanish into English.

I also have some experience in video and photo editing.
