Service Description

I'm a writer, and copywriter. I write on academic topics but I can also write on social media and on many other topics. I'm also a relentless researcher.

I am a perfectionist and there is no worse disservice than returning substandard work . I write and rewrite till I can deliver the quality of work you expect. My turnaround time depends on the job, but you can be assured that you will receive it without unnecessary delays.

Here are some additional good things about me:

-I did my degree in English Literature because I wanted to write. I'm used to writing very long papers (3,000 - 5,000 words) with strict deadlines for very demanding lecturers. So you know you will get your work when you need it and it will be more than satisfactory. No excuses.

-Partly because of my English degree and partly because I am a voracious reader, I have a very wide vocabulary and I very easily manipulate words and sentences so that you know that all the work you will receive will be 100% fresh

-I am used to researching and drawing information from several different sources. This was a must as a student. There is no way I will ever submit an article that has been written using a single source.

-I have also written numerous articles on a variety of subjects though not here on Elance.

Rest assured that I will personally do all the work I bid on. I will never subcontract it out to others.
