I have a Diploma in Applied Writing from Toi Ohomai Institute New Zealand. I am halfway through a double major BA in Religion and Psychology. I have experience in and am willing to do the following: Writing of decent, creative and informative articles for a fair price. Writing of very basic web page and business content (i.e. 'about us' pages, or modifying business pages for different websites). Writing the story of a person (memoir writing) or an organisation. Personalized poems for any occasion. Children's stories. Proofreading articles if they will contribute something to humanity. Proofreading and editing poems Proofreading (but not editing) of academic work if you are a second language speaker. Note, I am not willing to help you actually write your essay as this is illegal. Book cover design I've self-published three books of poetry for sale, and am published in three local anthologies, in addition to my works being on the web and elsewhere in the community. Google me!
