Service Description

Minimum Hourly Rate $10 per hour.

I come from a background in creative writing: poetry, fiction and creative prose. I enjoy developing language that jumps off the page while accomplishing informational or descriptive objectives. I believe in economy and elegance in writing. The web poses interesting challenges for writers as architects of information and constructors of the verbal images that a site deploys, and I relish the challenge of rendering concepts with as few vivid descriptors as possible to create the most immediate and colorful effect.

I am proficient with grammar, excellent at proofreading, and a diligent and resourceful researcher. But my real talent is in the ability to envision the effect words need to have on the reader and then to make that effect a reality on the page.
