Your company's written material should reflect your expertise and experience. But what if writing is not your strength?
I can help you.
With a background in journalism and corporate writing, I can present your professional skills to your best advantage, whether through your blog, through articles, or your corporate documentation. As a Platinum Level Ezine writer with university qualifications in media relations, I can build authentic and engaging promotional material relating to your company and your expertise. I can edit and proofread any existing documentation to ensure it has clean professional polish. And my creativity will add a unique edge to all your written material.

Payment Terms
I require escrow to be funded before I start working on a project. For larger projects, we can break the job into milestones and you are welcome to fund one milestone ahead if you prefer. Payment must be released before I start working on the next milestone - the last milestone will be a final edit and approval.

As I am presenting your expertise, my fee includes revision of material to ensure it accurately reflects your central message and resonates with your target audience.

For small projects, I will charge a 25% cancellation fee to cover my time if you decide to end the project during the draft process. For larger milestone projects, I will charge a maximum $50 cancellation fee, not including milestone payments already made for approved work.
