Overview

Iím a flexible writer who can tackle different formats. Whether youíre looking for a magazine article, a concise report, a press release or a research paper, I can tailor the tone of my writing to suit the needs of a specific situation.

In addition to writing, I spent six years marking essays at a university. In this capacity I developed a sharp eye for editorial detail, such as sentence structure, grammar and punctuation.

Service Description

I have written in the following formats:

-business correspondence
-historical text for an archival exhibit
-scripts for 1-hour radio show
-scripts for short radio documentaries (six to eight minutes)
-CD/book reviews
-press releases
-travel/food blog
-academic journal articles
-conference presentations

Many of these projects began with intensive research (using either Internet sources, academic databases, or archival materials, where applicable). Some of them (e.g., radio scripts) required fun, punchy phrases to appeal to a wide audience. Others, such as the academic articles, required careful presentation of ideas and up-to-date summaries of literature in the social sciences. I enjoy the challenge of changing the "game plan" for different audiences, and I'm always eager to add new formats to my arsenal.

There is one common thread between these formats, however: Deadlines. I'm great with deadlines, and have never asked for an extension on anything.

My "official" expertise is in music, but I also have a strong background in history, life insurance, gluten-free products, and travel. Due to my strong research skills, I can pick up new subjects with ease.
