I am a published author and an experienced freelance writer. Here's what a recent client says about my work:
"Steven is a spectacular writer who has proven his professionalism in this project. He takes the subject matter seriously and applies his talents accordingly. Communications with Steven are excellent, too. I plan to work with him again on future projects."
I am unique - that is, truly one of a kind. And anyone who hires me gets all of me: the published author, the popular former teacher, the passionate and careful writer. I always do my best . It's in my nature to put nothing but the best out there. So that's what I mean when i say that I am unique, and that anyone who hires me gets all of the above and then some.
I work by myself. My "team" is my many years of experience with the written word. I might add that I am very well read, so the books - nay, their authors - have been the company I have most treasured keeping for all of my life, since I became an avid reader early in childhood. I am sure, therefore, that I am uniquely qualified to take on assignments in many areas.
The Johns Hopkins University
Doctor of Philosophy
1963 - 1967
Saint Meinrad College
Professor of English
1972 - 1998
The college for which I worked full-time went out of business in 1998. I went into early retirement, and a new career in writing. Published three books since then. By now I also have considerable freelance writing experience behind me.But my earlier experiences with both teaching and writing should also serve my clients well.
Number of Employees
I prefer 50% upfront, although this is negotiable. The rest upon the satisfactory completion of a project.
I meet deadlines. And I do revisions - if and when they are necessary - for free. My aim is to make sure that the client gets what he or she wants and needs. But I have an additional aim: I want to produce the highest quality attainable by means of the written word.
