Mackenzie Maltby Tamayo 1216 West Colorado Avenue Suite 10 Colorado Springs, CO 80904 mtamayo@uccs.edu Phone: 719-337-3189 OBJECTIVE: To obtain a freelance writing position EDUCATION: 2011 University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Colorado Springs, CO Bachelors English African American Literature (Upper Division): I spent the semester reading and writing about the Harlem Renaissance as well as many of the more prolific contemporary African American writers like. I worked closely with my professor to better understand the psychology of race and gender that is prevalent in our culture. I wrote a research paper on Ntosake Shange’s choreopoem For Colored Girls and Gloria Naylor’s novel The Women of Brewster Place and posed the question: How do black women survive the oppressive violence demonstrated to them by black men? What is the psychology behind it? I argue by deconstructing the stereotype of the “strong black woman” and clinging to other black women for support, the black woman is able to regain her voice and dignity. I proved this trough close reading Naylor and Shange’s pieces of literature. I received an A in the course and was encouraged by my professor to submit my paper for publication. Grant and Proposal Writing (Upper Division): I learned the art of making and perfecting a grant specifically geared for non-profit groups. For my final project, I interviewed Colorado Springs local Julie Abel of Family Life Services, which is a residential community for single moms and their children designed to help families build a foundation for a new start in life. By working with her and understanding the psychology of these women better, I was able to craft a unique grant proposal that could be potentially beneficial to their organization. I received an A in the course. 2009 Pikes Peak Community College Colorado Springs, CO Partial Associates English 2007 Colorado State University Fort Collins, CO Some Bachelors English Secondary Education WORK HISTORY: David C.

Seeking to escape Corporate America. Excellent detail oriented editing skills - spelling, grammer, flow. I write more easily than I speak, and more quickly. I can write about anything you'd like to hear about - or, I can proofread whatever you need me to. Format Word, Excel, Power Point, etc. - documents to make them all nice and pretty. Professional or frivolous- whichever you prefer. Very flexible and just want to make some extra cash to cover the dry spells that are unfortunately part of life as a contractor. Tell me what to write about and I will write it. Skills range from technical specifications to catchy one liners; professional, version-controlled documentation to sword and sorcery short stories. Also can do proofreading and editing - as light as spelling and punctuation correction or as thorough as complete rewrites in alternate styles. Have no problem with deadlines, professional communications, or frequent status updates - I am seeking simply to avoid the politics. Let me sit silent in the background and make sure every "i" has a dot and every "T" has a cross. The tedium and repetition that frustrate and bore the aspiring professional who wishes to be in the thick of the corporate venue and reap those vast rewards are just my thing - for a small percentage of said rewards. Highly intelligent, detail oriented, self-motivated, honest, dedicated, loyal - these are all words that describe who I am. The only reward I seek is to know I have done the best job possible - as well as paying the bills. Ten years experience in Corporate America as Project Manager and Business Analyst, primarily in software development departments, with lots of required documentation done on a daily basis. College education split between Computer Networking with a specialization in Systems Administration and Business Managment with a specialization in Accounting - overall GPA 3.95. (One little annoying "B" in Speech - which lucky for you, has little to do with writing! :) People say I'm picky, they say I'm a perfectionist, but if anyone who knows me wants to be sure their documents are exactly right - they always come looking for me. I hope you will too.
