Jaime Karakachos has provided exceptional transcription and copy editing for me over the last several years, as well as proofreading and much needed feedback when I ventured I began to write longer articles and fictional books.
She's a one of a kind, with a great personality, and superior skills. I don't know where I'd be without her.
I am a graduate from the University of Illinois with a degree in English and a minor in communication. Previously, I was a reporter for a small town newspaper providing the lead stories and covering the hot topics around town.
I would like the opportunity to work from home part time, completing editing tasks or writing articles for a client. I currently work full-time, Monday-Friday, 8am to 5pm, but would love to use my skills on the side.
I offer writing, editing, online content, proofreading, and transcription. I have been a professional writer for nearly 40 years. I've worked for major daily newspapers, have written or ghostwritten eight books, and edited many more.
As an English grad student, I am asked daily to critically review not only my own work, but the work of my students, and teach them effective ways to communicate their points in an academic or professional setting. As a result, I am not only able to catch basic spelling and grammar errors, but have a hyper-focus on the overall success of the writing to communicate in its intended form.
