As a postgraduate creative writing student with a first class honours degree in English literature, I can guarantee content of the highest quality.
I have been involved in the world of publishing, both online and offline, for over ten years. I have designed websites and written web content since the mid-nineties, and followed the development of SEO since it's inception. I have worked as a freelance SEO writer for a UK media company, and I am a published writer in my own right, having published short stories in several literary journals and one book.
Since going full-time as a freelancer in 2011, I have been lucky enough to take part in a huge number of interesting projects here on Elance. I've ghostwritten books, edited fiction, honed my skills as a writer of sales letters and landing pages, written blogs as different characters, and learned to adapt my skills to the varied needs of my clients.
What some of my previous clients have to say about me:
"Usually, when you hire a writer for SEO purposes, you get a grammatically correct yet a somewhat dull article. Not so with Steph! Steph produced a 2000 word article that's actually interesting as well as search engine friendly. I truly enjoyed her research skills; she researched an interior design topic which was she was unfamiliar with and came across as an expert at the end. Because Steph is a thorough researcher, I'm confident that she could tackle any subject matter. Steph is polite, adheres to the deadline and budget. I would definitely recommend Steph; especially if you want to get significantly above standard results rather than "studenty" results." - cemgoknil
"She can do mind reading!" - Julien001
"I hired Steph345 to edit and proofread a draft of a short story I had finished writing. Our correspondence was very constructive and her comments really improved my story. All in all, I found Steph345 very helpful, meticulous and professional. Thanks to her, I now have a completed draft I can be proud of." - Mo_Asem
"AMAZING..this wouldn't even do justice to steph345's ability. Not only is steph345 an outstanding writer, she is extremely flexible, professional, wonderful to work with and reliable.....qualities that are hard to find in business these days. Steph345 is simply on a rockstar level in the writing world and I am definitely a raving fan. She has the remarkable ability to take the little you say and turn it into something bigger and better than you ever imagined. I'll definitely continue working with steph345; we already have a new project in the making. But alas I fear that her popularity will grow exponentially and I will end up on a very long queue for her services. Thank you so much steph345 and well done!" - Clevercloggs
"FANTASTIC elancer! Highly recommend. Stephanie was able to take the brief that I provided and really run with it. I have been very impressed with her writing and as we have high standards, it takes a lot to impress us. I can't speak highly enough! Thank you sooo much!" - NPConsulting
"Our company had a limited budget for this project, yet I decided to take a chance and hire Stephanie, even though I've had some cheaper offers on the table. And boy, I am so glad I did!!! Her professionalism and the top notch quality of content simply blew me away. From now on, when I will need a top-quality content for our most important projects, Stephanie will be my first pick!" - comparebest
"I am always amazed by the Stephanies writing skills. In my view she is one the worlds greatest but hidden writers. The first time that I noticed Stephanies unusual talent was when I simultaneously hired her and another writer in the United States to work on the same project. She delivered a product that set her apart from the crowd. She earned my admiration and trust ever since." - Adrego
