I am a skilled writer, extremely detail oriented and thorough at content and copy editing. I have an eye for grammar, sentence structure, and finesse, and often use these skills to edit memos, announcements, and letters for the apartment complex I live at. My wife, who has a bachelor's degree in English, often asks me to edit her own writing as well. I also have experience in writing poetry, articles, creative writing, and am working on a book on ancient Mesopotamia. I am hoping to expand my abilities and increase my experience in these areas.

I specialize in various forms of creative writing. Most recently, I have been focusing most of my time and energy on writing poetry but I have plenty of experience in writing fiction (mainly short stories) and plays. I am currently an English Literature student in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. While I am proficient in academic writing, I am looking to put my creative skills to use. I have also been noted for skill in proofreading and editing and would be willing and interested in doing work in this field as well.
