    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

    Let’s face it, there are a lot of writers out there that can give you fast and dirty content - every once in a while they actually write it themselves! If you’re really lucky, they might even sound like they know what they’re talking about 1% of the time… You’re getting something that’s passed through more hands than a cheap glass of liquor down south. I don’t know about you, but for me, that just won’t do. “Isn’t there a better way, Sara?” Yes, yes there is! I’ll show you how to open your audience’s hearts, their minds, their wallets… How to push past all the jaded, skeptical, feel-bad experiences they’ve had in the past and get to a place where they still dream, still hope for a better self, a better partner, better finances, better futures… They’ll finally be able to take the plunge, to take a leap of faith, to embrace the unknown… Because deep down in their hearts they know the only solution to their problems is what YOU have to offer them! Your messaging will appeal to the greedy little part of their brain that makes them buy your products, your services, your ideas… All while thinking it was their idea in the first place. If you’ve read this far, imagine how far I can lead your (future) customers! How much time are you spending trying to write something when you could be growing your business, networking, doing your thing? How much time are you spending editing poorly written articles or hunting down a writer that has mastery over time and space… I mean… the English language? Isn’t your time worth more than that? Of course it is! Almost 100 oDesk clients love me and you will too - because my copy *converts*. Click that contact button and tell me a bit about what you do and what you need. Thanks for reading!  less

    As a comedy Scriptwriter, I am no stranger to snappy writing. I am regularly required to produce engaging scripts; and these are skills that I believe are transferable to other forms of writing and Journalism. I have an A* in English Literature GCSE, as well as an A in Media Studies A-Level and B in English Language A-Level. Though I'm not the kind of person who thinks that grades solely determine one's abilities. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Film-Making at the Manchester School of Art, which inevitably led to my work as a freelance satire writer. I usually work with bold and edgy comedy projects, utilising a variety of styles such as Surrealist and Absurdist Humour, as well as the odd Double Entendre thrown in for good measure. Despite this, I can also write in a formal and professional manner, as I am displaying in this summary. I also have experience in Documentary Filmmaking, having made a couple of Documentaries on my own; which required literary and organisational skills beyond belief. I have an extensive portfolio of Comedy Sketches and also a full 149-page Comedy Play that I have written. I can't put them all up here for legal reasons but I will be happy to send you samples if you so wish! If you want a versatile writer who's used to making his work entertaining; then I'm your guy. Thanks, Joe  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

    I put your ideas into words. A writer writes, and a professional writer writes with the client in mind. I've written professionally for years in many fields from the technical to the imaginative. Whether I'm writing or editing articles, revising or ghostwriting your novel, or even posting to a blog I keep one thing in mind: Presenting your ideas to the reader. My job is to write transparently; to use words so that the reader only notices what I'm saying, not how I'm saying it. I'm there to be a bridge between your thoughts and the reader's mind. I'm a Hypnotherapist, Emotional Freedom Technique(EFT) and Reiki expert with ability to write unique articles, teaching manuals and other web contents. I'm a certified YOGA Trainer & Meditation instructor with the ability to work as a Penguin-Panda specialist and SEO Guru.  less

    I was a freelance copywriter working alone at home in my underwear. To bolster my social and financial well being, I took up bartending and embraced the romance of it all. I worked in a Brazilian restaurant where I learned to sing “Happy Birthday” in Portuguese. I worked in a private city club where the correct pronunciation of “Chateau Paradis Casseuil Rouge” was derigueur. Through caterers and event facilities, I got to know the party-‘til-you-puke crowd and learned to spot a fake ID with uncanny accuracy. Stories waiting to be written were everywhere. Between martinis and margaritas, I took notes and eventually wrote a screenplay, synopses for two others, and five short stories. Now I’m ready to get back into freelance writing. Standing on my feet for nine hours a night makes working at home in my underwear look good again. The romance of the bar has long lost its glow. And my social life still sucks. Freelance projects I’ve worked on –- before and during bartending -- include web page content, print and broadcast advertising, brochures and sales letters, tag lines, and magazine features. I also proofread a small-college catalog and edited it for clarity and easy reading. And I came up with concepts and copy for an improv group's craziness. I think I am a well-rounded writer, and I understand the importance of research and a solid creative platform in effective communication. I must admit that my experience with internet marketing and social-media is limited, but it is growing. I welcome trial projects. Cheers!  less

    Hello, this is Elene, a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese with in-depth understanding of different culture, has been dedicating to the service of bilingual business coordination in China since 2007, while my translation experience can be traced back to 2000. * My service including but not limited to: 1) English-Chinese translation in either literary, technical, academic or commercial style with the essence of accuracy and brevity. <<<100% manual translation for business entities and professional individuals>>> 2) China sourcing (inactive after 2012), China marketing (inactive after 2012), website localization to Chinese version. * My expertise of writing and translation including but not limited to: 1) Website translation and localization I'm skilled in HTML, JavaScript, MySQL, Adobe design kit etc, and have the concept of SEO. 2) Spiritual content writing and translation I'm interested in the metaphysics, as well as related subjects. I'm a solo or co-translator of several books and I'm always looking for what new worthy of my contribution. 3) Business proposal, report, contract and other general topics, either technical or non-technical. Being an elegant Chinese writer and professional English-Chinese translator, unlike many others, I translate Chinese into English in a relatively non-Chinglish way, and English into Chinese in a relatively non-English way by means of being immersed in the scenario thus brings out the comprehension of different logic and feeling experience. I had experience working in an electronics company, a T-commerce company, an internet company (2000-2005), and assisted in a cross-border Merger & Acquisition project, moreover, I have filed up the terminologies of medicine, law, finance, software, art, as well as business practice covering management, marketing, wholesale & retail, foreign trade, logistics etc, so I can adapt to different style according to different subject. * I'm detail-oriented perfectionist caring about the grammar, the rhythm, and even the punctuation.
