Service Description

I am a staff writer at a daily newspaper, and I would like to take in some freelance work to supplement my income. I am trained in both magazine and newspaper writing and editing. I am familiar with AP style and writing for the web. I have kept a travel blog in the past and write a general one now. I write competently on a wide variety of topics, but specialize in food, travel and music writing. I am meticulous in my work, with an attention to detail and an eye for errors. My grammar is excellent; my writing is clear and easy to understand. I am a hard worker with a commitment to timeliness and a dedication to excellence.
