Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $27

My name is Laurel Karry and I am an Honours English and French major with over twenty-years' experience as a secondary school educator. My forte is writing, editing, proofreading, grammar, punctuation, and spelling. (I promise not to circle anything in red pen like your English teacher did.) I am also a freelance writer of fiction and non-fiction, having published stories, poems, and articles for newspaper and literary journals. My passion is language and words. My interest is in content writing, copywriting, and creative writing.
