Carly Syms

Award-winning journalist, novelist and editor
   United States
  |   Scottsdale, AZ

Overview

Hi! I'm Carly. I've been writing forever, or at least since I discovered magic markers and construction paper. I like to think I've fine-tuned my writing (and editing) skills since then. I've published five novels, spent years in the sports writing industry and currently work in radio writing and reporting.

I've transcribed interviews, conducted interviews, written short, informative articles and long feature pieces, and produced radio and TV news. As I mentioned before, I've written and edited novel-length works.

Service Description

To be brief, I'm offering writing, editing and reporting services.

To be a bit more descriptive, I'm offering help with all aspects of the writing process. From initial research to potential interviews or transcriptions to putting my fingers on the keyboard and writing content, I'm happy to (and experienced in!) doing it all.

I've mastered several different writing styles, including the conversational voice that seems to work well for fun topics and blogs and a more serious tone that's still engaging when it comes to investigative articles or full-length work.

I have ghostwriten and am happy to do it again!

I'm an experienced editor, having been employed as once since I began working for Rotowire in 2010. I'm familiar with AP style, but can edit simply for basic spelling, punctuation and grammar.

Finally, I'm currently a radio reporter and offer help with scheduling and conducting interviews, as well as transcribing them.
