Overview

I am a skilled writer and copyeditor with experience in web content, journalism and creative writing. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Writing and Communications from Maryville College, where I served as editor in chief of our school newspaper, The Highland Echo, for two years. I also worked as a writer in advertorials and as a freelance reporter for a local newspaper, The Daily Times. Through my experience in college and journalism, I have learned to produce content that is not only well-researched and grammatically correct, but also...

Service Description

I offer services in writing for web and print, copyediting, ghost writing and creative writing. My experience as a reporter and editor have taught me to work on deadlines and within tight assignment parameters without sacrificing quality. Many writers can create readable and grammatically correct content, but they lack instinct for the ways style can enhance content. Good writing is about analyzing target audiences and figuring out how to present the information in order to create the biggest impact. This is something I have learned to do through in-depth study of writing in college, and I have learned how to apply this information in a practical way through my experience in journalism. No two projects can use the same approach if they are effective, and I work hard to adapt my form and tone to the unique needs of every assignment. If you are looking for a writer that will meet deadlines and focus on generating impactful copy, hire me for your next project.
