As a professional writer, my experience ranges from journalism and feature writing, editing, copywriting, blogging and writing for online media, and website design.
- Journalism and Feature Writing – I’ve served as a contributing writer to publications including Forty Magazine, a digital publication targeted towards young professionals adjusting to the workplace (ongoing); SOCIALIFE News Magazine, a local social events publication based in McAllen, Texas; The Baylor Lariat Newspaper, the official newspaper of my alma mater; and my personal blog, Ariadne’s Thread, where I write about style/fashion, social issues, books, and film. With my experience writing for publications, both in print and online, I can be a great asset to your publication, website, or blog.
- Editing – I currently do freelance editing for resumes, cover letters, scholarship essays, and graduate/professional school admissions essays. I also do editing for feature articles, social media and online media writing, and technical documentation. Need a second glance at that feature article you’ll post on your company blog? Or maybe you need someone to help focus your college admissions essay. Whether it’s a feature article, a college admissions essay, a resume, or any other written piece, I have the editing chops to tighten the writing and make it flow from start to finish.
- Copywriting – I’ve had experience writing catalog copy and web copy. As an intern at Baylor University Press, I wrote catalog copy for a multitude of manuscripts and books. I also collaborated with several local organizations to write copy for their websites, including One Smart Cookie, a local Central Texas bakery, and Waco Arts Initiative, a non-profit organization that offers arts programs to local youth. if you need web copy for your startup’s website, or if you’re looking to promote your local business, a great website with catchy web copy might be just the thing for you. With my copywriting experience, I can help promote your business and help make it turn heads.
- Blogging, Online Media Writing, Website Design – I currently write for the Forty Magazine Blog and my personal blog, Ariadne’s Thread. I have extensive experience with HTML/CSS, XML, WordPress, Adobe DreamWeaver, Adobe InDesign, and Adobe Illustrator. If you’re looking for someone with the technical chops to help create your or your company’s website, I’ve got it covered.
