Service Description

I am a staff writer for an insurance association looking for some extra clips for my portfolio. Although my job title says I am a writer, I also have extensive experience in editing and proofreading.

I've had experience writing about many topics, and love the journalism field because I believe it allows me to be a mini expert on many topics. Enough research and interviewing the experts on a topic, I believe, allows me to write about just about anything.

Prior to my current position, I edited a trade mag for industrial construction workers. I did just about everything for this mag, from editing to proofreading to writing. So I think I have enough experience to do any sort of work that needs a journalist's touch.

I've also had experience fact-checking for a commercial magazine - Indianapolis Montly, editing for a university yearbook, and writing press releases and other freelance articles.
