Service Description

Articles -- I've worked as a reporter, staff writer and columnist, and written on a huge variety of topics. I've covered education, business, politics, the EPA, regulatory issues, food, travel, and so many other topics they can't be listed here. As a general-assignment reporter, one learns to handle whatever is thrown at you. Over the years, I've had well over 1,000 articles published.

SEO content -- with years of experience as a writer and editor, I'm adept at manipulating text to maximmize keyword use without compromising readibility

Product descriptions -- as a contributor to Fancy Foods and Culinary Products, I wrote product descriptions that were clever as well as informative and compelling

Editing and proofreading -- I have held full-time positions as an associate editor with Reed Elsevier and as managing editor of Chef magazine. As a freelancer, I've edited publications including CULINOLOGY and Wedding Trends and News. I'm thooughly familiar with AP style, and can write in other styles as requested.
