    I'm passionate about true creativity in advertising. 30 years of experience, coupled with talent and creativity, have earned me the distinction of being an advertising specialist. However, there's more to doing a great job than simply cranking out awesome copy or designs. Knowing how to work with people, understanding their needs, timely communication, on time delivery and an impeccable work ethic are equally important. My goal is to bring all of these to the table as we work together to achieve results through excellent written and visual communications, and to build a working relationship that will grow into the future. If you are in need of words and pictures that will get you noticed, and a seasoned professional to work with, you've come to the right place!  less

    This gratifying feedback from previous clients stands as my best endorsement. ------------- "As a competent and creative writer with an excellent command of English, as well as love for books, Marcia will be an asset to anyone who is shrewd enough to seek her assistance. She will go the extra mile to make your work glitter. Great job Marcia!" ------------ "Professionals who can hit the ground running on a job that involves a product or technology they're entirely new to are rare indeed. In an extremely limited period of time, Marcia produced an excellent white paper on a rather complex new product, working from only my set of very scrambled and disorganized notes. I was very impressed and would definitely recommend her writing services." ----------- "Marcia is personable, professional, dedicated… and, as a lovely bonus, funny. I was happy with her work!" ===================================================== My objective is to exchange my considerable language and visual arts skills for dollars. I have taught writing basics for 8 years. My style is generally conversational and engaging -- precise, yet readable. Persuasive writing is my forte, having a few years under my belt as a marketing writer and SAT coach. I am an artist by nature which translates to my writing; composition is a great deal more than the organization of content. I understand the elements required for grants and proposals and can adapt my writing for specific markets. In the last 2 years, I have written proposals for public art projects, consulted and designed restaurant start-up concepts and marketing strategies and published extensive ad copy. Once I know my audience, I can readily adapt the content for that market. I am curious about virtually everything, so research is just icing on the cake. I simply want to make a decent living from what I know I do well.  less

    Do you have a book in your head and need somebody to write it down? Do you have a book on paper and need someone to polish it, tighten it up, shape it, make it sing? Are you a merchant with a continuous stream of copy that absolutely has to be bright and error-free? As a copy editor, I write and proofread copy with the precision of a computer programmer or an accountant, in both of which fields I’ve had considerable experience. Nothing gets by me. That’s only the beginning. In my 20-year career as non-profit program manager and back-office polymath, I’ve edited minutes and articles, written successful grants and sales letters, technical documentation, user guides, and financial reports, and designed newsletters and all manner of public relations and promotional materials. In 2009, I retired from the office of a small non-profit adult care community after ten years building the organization’s community support base, level of fundraising, technical and financial infrastructure, and public relations professionalism. My appeal letters increased every year and ultimately doubled the yield of L’Arche Nehalem Community’s Annual Appeal. Since then, I’ve been writing books, building a writing portfolio, as well as pursuing some creative ventures in other fields. My book of anecdotes, The Depressed Guy’s Book of Wisdom, is published by Chipmunka Publishers, London. I’ve been doing a weekly column on writing as the Sunday Editor of Gather.com’s Writing system portal. I’ve done a huge variety of creative writing during these three years, including non-fiction, stories, poetry, and a full-length young adult novel. I would love to talk to you about your project or opportunity. I know I can be an enormous help to your endeavors.  less

    There is a very thin line between insanity and ingenuity. Filipino artists are always at par with the rest out there, be that on a traditional approach or with the use of the most latest technology to create works of art. But it takes a great mind and strict discipline to achieve the ultimate crowning masterpiece that every artist would want, with or without the hi-tech stuff. Young artists these days are incredibly gifted, but sad to say that most of them are too bold to show off and very eager to cut short the learning process of their trade. Just like teachers who passes the baton to his/her prodigy, so does experience, which I know most of us would agree on it, teaches the finest lessons known to man, good or bad. It just boils down on how the person/artist make the most out of it. That is a born fact. I want to share my thoughts, style, experiences,hardwork,devotion and love of the arts to those who seek it and always on the go to learn and know more from others. What can I say, I love my craft. Lock and load folks.  less
