Jul 17, 2013|Editing & Proofreading|Private|Completed
I can offer many depths of editing and proofreading, from basic proofreading to line and developmental editing. I am also always open to offering my opinion on formatting and flow of documents. I am very capable of working within deadlines and communicating with all parties involved on projects.
I previously worked as the sole creator and editor of a 28-page magazine for a hardware company, which put all of my skills to work (i.e., writing, editing, proofreading, design, communicating with multiple contacts, working within deadlines, remaining organized while working on multiple aspects of a project). I also worked on multiple ad hoc assignments from creating product descriptions for web content to creating and editing posters and flyers.
I currently work as a Technical Writer. My main tasks include creating, updating, and editing documents that outline policies and procedures and offer help for products and tools the company offers clients. I also work on a specialized team that creates communications for student loan borrowers, including correspondence sent to borrowers throughout their repayment period (e.g., emails and letters), website content, topic-specific informational articles, and more.
