I have over ten years of personal experience as a creative writer of short fiction and poetry and eight years as an academic writer. I have also dabbled in various creative writing genres from the personal essay to the screenplay. My professional experience includes three years of proofreading and editing as an English tutor for a college institution and four year of creating, writing and editing as a frustrated freelancer. In terms of creative writing, I am most concerned with the human condition. This I place before all since it has the ability to make any richly described landscape that much more beautiful. When it comes to copywriting or editing for the purpose of business or advertising, I confess I am more comfortable with the job of editing than writing unless the material I am allowed to create is fresh and invokes the kind of passion that stirs creativity. I am of the peculiar sort ... I am a writer.

    “This the second time that our organization has retained the services of Ms. Skayum. And once again, she did not disappoint us. She was, as always, very professional, on-time, communicated very well with us around the clock, and most importantly, knew exactly what we wanted and how to articulate it. It is, always, a privilage working with Ms. Skayum. Try her! You will be happy you did. Emmanuel, President, EquipCare U.S.A”

    “Skayum, is in one word; AMAZING! She is as good as they come. She went over and above what we expected of her. She gave us important professional advice that we - with our combine experience of 66 years in Wall Street - have not even dreamt of. She did not need any babysitting and was on time. To think that we almost did not hire her because we thought her low bid will mean poor work. Please do yourself a favor, if you want a quality work done: hire her! You will not regret it. Emmanuel Abbey Founder and President, Equipcare”

    “I was not expecting such a level of professionalism. SKayum knew her stuff, communicated often and even taught me a thing or two about English and writing that I never knew about.”
