Joan O.

I am a journalist, copywriter and a bachelors degree holder with 6 years writing experience on Freelancer.com. I pride myself in having repeat clientele who return because they are guaranteed quality writing that is original, engaging, informative, mindful of SEO rules and delivered within deadlines. I always aim at exceeding the expectations of my clients. And when I'm not writing for clients, I still enjoy writing book reviews, travel stories and blogging about music. If exceptional writing is what you're after - look no further!
