    As a writer, my ongoing objective is to be the best content writer I can be and to deliver SEO friendly work within an efficient time frame. Most of all, I'm here to produce quality work for you. As a creative writer, editor and academic, I combine grace, wit and thoroughness in anything and everything I write. In the past I have written and/or edited for numerous publishers, from small literary presses like Tarpaulin Sky to trade publishers like Macmillan. I have also edited for prestigious publishers that include the Boston Review, Harvard University Press' Business School division (Higher Education), the University of Alabama Press and Columbia University's School of Social Sciences. Equally important, I'm efficient and an easy person to work with. I enjoy life and am grateful that I can pursue a career where I can put my writing skills to good use!  less

    My career was chosen for me in the third grade when my classmates began paying me in erasers and pencils to write their book reports. Little did I know, it was the beginning of a lifelong passion for writing and educating people through writing. I am best at writing non-fiction, but have written fiction in the past. I am very familiar with online blogs, and have maintained several blogs focused on women's and human rights issues. I also have strong experience writing on adult topics. I tend to have a dry sense of humor which I have been told makes my work an easy and entertaining read. For the past five years I have worked as a tutor for Master's or Doctorate level college students. I also assist many Law School students from NYU. In addition to proofing and writing papers, I often read the texts and explain the subject to the student. I have maintained and written several blogs for past students. I have always been a voracious reader and love learning new things, so I am highly experienced in writing using medical terms, legal terms, and am familiar with various other technical writing styles. I am also very strong at writing biographies or summarizing articles. In addition, I have vast experience in the field of proofreading and citations in both MLA and APA formats. My writing style can be very serious and technical when warranted. I have a naturally sarcastic sense of humor which tends to show through when writing on blogs or other types of forums where humor and personality is useful to gain the attention of the readers. I am very adaptable to any type of writing style a client is looking for and I also have an expansive vocabulary. Thank you for reading, and I hope to work with you soon.  less

    I am Vanessa Delos Reyes, an honor graduate (Cum Laude) and a freelance writer, editor, proofreader and trainer. I've been a working student for four years since my first year in College. During those years, I have done a lot of short-term projects from different clients in terms of writing, editing and proofreading articles, essays, thesis, research papers and so on. As of the moment, I am working in a Korean company as a freelance writer, editor and proofreader. For so long, I have written essays about issues and concerns of our society and some are of creative stories based on their different levels. Through this, those essays served as their guide to help them create their own work. Furthermore, I have edited a lot of English essays made by Koreans with different levels. I also have proofread and trained editors under my team on the basic rules of editing and the proper use of editing symbols. I also have some experience in teaching High School students about Academic Research and Advance English in Pasig Catholic College.  less

    I am a Business Analyst, Salesforce.com Certified Administrator and Developer, Tester, Blog writer and Social media manager. I have analyzed and designed and successfully closed a wide range of software implementations. My core competency lies in Business Analysis, software documentation, blog writing, configuring and customizing Salesforce.com CRM, end to end requirement management, systems analysis, software design, acquiring sign offs and advising implementation team throughout the process. I also have interest and experience in the following areas: Blogging and article writing on technologies, information and information systems security. Please have a look at my portfolio to enjoy my articles. I am an IELTs 8 band scorer and have studied it as my first language in O-Levels. My SOPs are as follows: a) Quality of work - In an effort to deliver quickly quality of work is not compromised. I understand that interations buy yours as well as my valuable time. So the objective is to attempt on delivering the best the first time only. b)Timelines are realistic and so delivery is timely - Offering unrealistic timelines and promising delivery and then making excuses is unethical to me. My ETAs are taken very seriously and are hardly ever missed. c) Transparency - Before initiating the task I provide my employer with a breakdown of how many mandays a task will buy. I breakdown the task into sub tasks e.g. researching online to collect data, brain storming, documenting and proofreading and provide number of hours each task will buy. So my employer knows well what is the work flow and how are timelines being justified. This also helps me and employer to negotiate on the timelines. d) Project Plan - A Microsoft project plan is issued before initiating the task to the employer. It contains start and end dates of a particular sub task and a relation between tasks. the relation tells the sequence in which subtasks will be done. e) Packaging - A delivery is taken very seriously. If multiple tasks are to be delivered together. A single package is made containing a list of tasks and task documents as well. This is usually a compressed file (.Zip or .rar) as per employer's wish.  less

    Please, call me Meg. :) I feel that the the written word is a powerful tool and I want to help my clients create clear and concise copy. My job history has provided me with knowledge and experience in several different industries, from medical to financial to technical, and I am comfortable reading and editing a wide range of documents. I have written,edited and proofread hundreds of web-content articles and have edited a number of books, (both fiction and non-fiction), many of which have been accepted by publishers. I am currently the mother of a 9- and 10-year-old. I enjoy freelance work because it allows me the flexibility to attend school functions and care for my kids while still working full time.  less
