I am an Artist, so by nature I am curious about how things work, and are arranged. I am creative and one to always push the envelope. I like to find something new and fresh and develop it. I look for justice and if it cannot be found, find a way to equalize things.

Hello, I am James Loper. I am just beginning to attempt to scratch the surface of freelance writing. I have a BA in Communications with an emphasis in journalism from the University of South Carolina. I worked a short stint at a local bi-weekly newspaper, The Greer Citizen, in town a few years ago. For the last three 3 years I have been working in quality at a manufacturing job toiling away with work that doesn't challenge or inspire me. Which leads me to now; I want to get back into the field and write as much as I can in hopes of writing professionally in the near future. I have continued to write throughout this time; mostly short stories, lyrics, and blogging from time to time. I am educated and well versed in AP style along with article formatting, so I would love to be able to write articles again.

I recently graduated from Concordia University Chicago with a degree in Non-profit Business and Church Management. This degree exposed me to the intricacies of managing nonprofit, raising funds, leading volunteers, and maintaining a network of friends interested in my same mission. I was given the opportunity to be an intern at Circle Urban Ministries where I learned the art of grant writing and event planning. My talent as an illustrator was always a hobby until I recently decided to create my own book. I created every idea and allowed it to come alive through ink. My drawings were single pane comics depicting puns, common life scenarios, or total sarcasm. My background drawing portraits, landscapes, and still life inspired my talents today. As a Christian I find great joy working with individuals or churches who desire drawings to illustrate their books, posters, or murals. Working alongside churches brings the best experiences because the overall goal is to share the gospel with the desired audience. Though these specific skills are important, I later came to understand the importance of: collaborating with a team, being able to receive criticism, becoming a leader and when necessary, a follower, and finally the need for setting goals. I find these qualities to be universally true for any job of any skill. I am dedicated to practicing these skills in my future career.

I graduated from Brigham Young University this spring with a bachelor's in English and a minor in editing. I have interned as an editor and writer with several magazines and websites and have articles published in BYU Magazine and LDS Living magazine. I've also worked as a TA for both high school and college classes, so I have a lot of experience in taking good writing and making it great. Currently, I'm looking to put my skills to work from home—I'm having a baby in about 2 months and am trying to get as many from-home editing projects as possible to help put my husband through school. I love editing fiction and nonfiction of all types, but special interests of mine include Mormon doctrine, culture, and history, since I'm an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
