One of the best professional writers I have come across. Born wordsmith. Knows exactly how to handle the tricky and delicate circumstances. Ability to re-frame anything to fit the desired result. Whether it is spinning a negative into a positive or writing with emotion to evoke a desired result, she is a master of all. My experience has been wonderful.

Charles is a very talented writer and worked already on a few internationally acclaimed projects, for the BBC and more recently for a world class Cuban opera. Another important skill, he translates very well written ideas into video concepts, he understands well both worlds. I worked with him on a few projects and I will sure use his talents again.

I have had the privilege and honor of working with Sharon and I wish to share my experience so those out there, seeking to find that special person find solace and comfort in reading this. Sharon is an extremely attuned individual, who clearly has been a master of her craft for many years. She will listen to you, while collecting a sketch of who you are, what you have done and where you wish to go as a professional. She, as a paintbrush does with colors, will formulate in the most concise, relevant and articulate way, who you are and all that you have done and wish to, assembled beautifully and formatted with all that you have asked for in writing. She is expert with many platforms, is determined, authentic and committed to a client she works with, and I could not have asked for someone better in all areas! Her main goal/focus is to get you where you need to be - regardless of how close or far one is to the goal. It is difficult enough to self-market, even for those who are good with this, but she will always find a way to make the narrative interesting and memorable in the way she places her wording and chooses her statements about the person she works with. In addition, she her sensibilities and ability to really listen to the person makes for a more valuable journey, since she has a natural way of being an introspective listener while allowing the person to self-reflect. This allows for one to be honest with one's professional quest. I chose Sharon among many that are listed for professional writers/job seekers etc. Sharon works at all levels of the corporate hierarchy so her knowledge base, expertise and approach are all integrated behind successful yield and results! She has this personal touch in the way she works with you, and you at all times feel she gets to know you, versus it being just another client. She takes great pride in her work, will research everything there is to know and is diligent within her time frames and deadlines she sets for herself. I could not have been happier working with Sharon. She is a rare gem and I would highly recommend her to anyone who seeks professional advice/guidance and coaching. She is in addition, an extremely gifted writer. Thank you so much Sharon for your time, wisdom and incredible skills!

“In an industry that predicates itself on precision, and yet is too often overwhelmed by those who claim to have mastered it, yet are belied by their tendency to ‘dot their T’s and cross their I’s,’ Michael Mohr cuts through, clears the way, and, in the main, raises the bar. A delight to work with, Michael is that rare breed of editor who understands the literary merits of a work while keeping an eye (not the dotted variety; the kind that provides vision) on what the agency circuit looks for. Still, he doesn’t sacrifice those literary merits simply to satisfy the bottom line demands of the prevailing status quo. In practice, he’s actually providing editorial insights that raise the bar for agents as well. No question we will work with him again, or at least until writers run out of words to craft and commit to paper.” —Ralph Scott, managing partner/executive editor, EDITORO, LLC (editoro.biz)

I have had Colleen's help in editing two very different projects: a business proposal and a website, so this is almost two reviews in one. Both were done VERY well - she is a strong technical writer with an eye for professional writing. The website, which was to promote an event I created, was completely different. I wanted it to be really fun and informative. Colleen is creative with an awesome sense of humor and she was perfect for the job. She took my dull content and turned it into something that was actually fun to read. Versatile, fast and smart. I strongly recommend her for your editing or writing needs.

About

I specialize in "Crisis Technical Writing," that is writing a manual when you have to get one out, either pdf or in print. I work well under pressure. I am not interested in full time work.

It is not enough to just know the language, but also the customer, his or her cultural vantage point, and his or her specific needs. My job is to tailor a solution to your communication needs and add value for you.

My motto: "Dry" topics don't have to be dull. My areas of expertise and interest: personal finance, small-biz management, urban planning and environmental issues. They're far from boring to cover -- I've tagged along with a Secret Service agent hunting identity theft gangs online, and got my "investing fortune" read by a palm reader/technology consultant. * I was a staff writer for Self, Money and Red Herring magazines. Now as a San Francisco-based freelancer, I write for print and Web publications including Bankrate, AdvisorMax, Edutopia, Harvard Management Update and MSNBC.com. * On the Internet side, I was editor of Quicken.com, covering finance and small-business topics for 2.5 million users. * All the knowledge I've gained has led me to regular corporate writing assignments. Recent clients include Intuit, Cisco Systems, and the University of California. I have worked as an editor for a custom publishing company, working with clients like Comcast and the Credit Union League of California to create magazines and newsletters for their customers. I also write marketing collateral and business strategies for nonprofit organizations. * I also write and edit for nonprofits, most recently The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Ashoka and the University of California.

The most important part of what I do is maintaining my client's voice and perspective. The deliverable is theirs and it should reflect that. I take great pride in the perfecting the details in a project so that there is no question that the end product is the very best version possible.

About

I write stories. You may want to talk about your brand, a problem that you solve and/or about an idea that could make a difference to the world. I see all communication with the lens of a story worth telling. Share with me what you would like to say and I will help you find listeners/readers.

About

I have more than a decade of professional writing experience, specializing mainly in the Business-to-Business sector, with a special emphasis on the technology industry. I spent 8 years in public relations agency work in the US and UK, drafting bylined articles and case studies which have been published in B2B and trade magazines and journals in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, South Africa, and UAE. Translations of my work have been published in France, Germany, Belgium, Poland, Finland, Sweden, Spain, Portugal, China, Singapore, and Japan. I also possess several years of experience in general marketing, preparing content for newsletters, email blasts, websites, brochures, catalogs, social media posts, and other marketing avenues. My clients have mostly been in the technology sector - from startups to multi-billion dollar enterprises - but I have also worked with industries ranging from legal services to cleaning and hygiene to adventure travel. The process I employ ensures that I have adequate information to complete the job before starting it, whether the client provides that or I conduct my own background research. I am also a very detail-oriented copy editor. Transparent pricing is offered, preferably by the word but hourly rates can also be negotiated.
