Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22

I am a freelance writer and editor working out of Ann Arbor, Michigan where my primary writing job requires creativity and intelligence to elaborate on vacation itineraries for a high-end travel agency.

I also write for a local arts and entertainment monthly, with my pieces appearing both in print and website content.

I have experience in public relations, writing for media, working with AP Style, as well as technical writing and transcription.

I've never missed a deadline.
