I am a writer and composer and have a great deal of writing and editing experience, both with text, lyrics and music. I am looking for work which I can do at home, as I am disabled and it is inconvenient for me to travel. II can write quickly if needed and can be formal or funny...you choose! With regard to compensation, I would expect an advance against royalties. I would keep ownership of the copyright but could negotiate a deal for publishing. I put an arbitrary figure down for compensation as I would be willing to negotiate and of course would expect a variety of offers, depending on the project. My resume follows below. Please contact me at your convenience, and thank you.
