I am a freelance writer, editor, and proofreader searching for work; I offer any and all of these skills at the disposal of employers, depending on what you may need or are comfortable with. I can also provide translation from Spanish/Japanese into English and vice versa, though this is a new service I am offering.
I have done professional editing and proofreading work with Penguin Random House Publishing Co. and can provide references if you'd like. I also have a resume/writing samples available upon request.
The best way to contact me is probably through email, but I will respond fairly quickly to PMs.
As I am still starting out in this field, I as of yet have no specific dos/don'ts in regards to the types of projects I will work on; if you have something you'd like me to do, we can discuss your general idea and I will complete it to the best of my ability.
UPDATE!! Due to some interest both on and off this site and a hefty increase in my workload, I will no longer be able to offer free services. I am, however, very willing to negotiate stipends/per word prices, and I will do my utmost to work for only what compensation an employer is comfortable with/capable of giving.
That said, my baseline will typically be $0.04 per word writing, $0.01 per word for editing/proofing. Translation prices vary contract to contract.
