Over the past eight years, I have written several novels, plays, poems, short stories, and songs — not to mention dozens of blogs. You can probably already tell that I’m passionate about writing my own words, but I also take great enjoyment out of making other people’s words better. I offer editing and copywriting services with competitive rates and reasonable deadlines for all of my clients. View my writing portfolio for samples of my work.
What qualifies me
Much of my time during the two-year study of my MFA Creative Writing with Publishing was spent critiquing and workshopping the writing of my peers, both fiction and non-fiction, and providing in-depth analysis and editing help for students I taught in my second year.
While I studied my MFA, I also began to work as a freelance copywriter, doing projects with companies such as Lovely Creative Agency, Glipho (now defunct), Les Trois Soeurs (whom I still work for), The Review Review and various other businesses and charities. I have written hundreds of blogs, product descriptions, press releases, short biographies, reviews, speeches, and magazine articles.
I am currently employed as a copywriter for the marketing department of a law association, where I produce marketing collateral, business correspondence, and website content. I also accept freelance projects from international and local clients. Below is a sample of the services I can provide.
What I offer
Editing & Proofreading
If you have a written-word project that needs proofreading, editing, or just another set of eyes on structure and style, I would love to help you get your writing where it needs to be. My services can cover everything from changing your commas to periods, recommending that you use ‘nauseated’ instead of ‘nauseous’, or offering plot and structural suggestions on your project as a whole. I have edited and proofread full novel manuscripts, short stories, term papers (I won’t write them for you, though), poems, non-fiction, children’s books, and plays.
Getting the words exactly right to market or promote your brand is extremely important. It is also difficult and time-consuming. With my copywriting services, you can take care of running your company and leave the words in my hands. Whatever you need written, whether it be product descriptions, website or blog content, event promotion — or something completely different — I would be happy to discuss your options and my ideas for your project.
I already write on several topics about which I am passionate, but I am always looking for opportunities to expand my knowledge and interest base. I offer special interest and blog writing on any topic, as well as ghostwriting to the right client.
What my clients have said
Ted, former editor, Glipho: “Amy is intelligent, versatile and has always managed to surprise me with her creativity and outstanding command of the English language. She is not only one of the best writers I’ve had the pleasure of working with, but also someone I personally recommend to my friends and colleagues. Amy is my go-to person when I need a great writer as I just don’t have time to mess around with anyone else that is short of bloody amazing.”
Sophie, marketing manager, Les Trois Soeurs: “Amy is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her as a copywriter. She is always very prompt in responding to a brief, understands the tone of our site well and creates interesting copy for our dedicated blog readers. We are happy to be working with Amy.”
