You go your way.

I'll go your way too.

A woman with bruneete hair sits at a desk holding a cup of coffee. She is wearing a red patterned shirt.

I currently work with clients on a few different writing challenges including:

 

content & blog writingediting & proofreading | educational resource creation | press releases | newsletters | corporate & business writing | ghostwriting

 

The overwhelming feedback I get from those I write for and with is the strength of my 'voice' and ability to communicate an idea with the right mix of personality and professionalism.

 

I'm inherently passionate about connecting with others and sharing different perspectives in positive, creative, and curiosity-driven ways. Anne Lamott is quoted as saying "writing is about telling the truth" and I believe that all writing should speak to a truth, in one way or another.

 

Think we could be a good match to work together?

I'd love to help you find the right mix of words, but I do have a large, existing client list. If the box below says 'available' then click away, my friend, and get in touch.

Otherwise, I already have a full roster of work requests and am unavailable at this time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

a word or two from my clients:

"Elaine is a versatile writer who can cover a wide gamut of topics covering career advice and mental health. Her writing is insightful and savvy. Every time I read a story draft from Elaine it is evident that she has put time and intention into crafting her words. She is prompt on edits and always able to turn around stories on or before a deadline. Working with Elaine is truly a gift!"

Stephanie Taylor | Darling Magazine

"For the past year, Elaine has been writing the newsletter and blog articles for my company.  In that time, I have seen a huge increase in email open rates and engagement.  Her blog articles and always carefully crafted, insightful, and engaging. I appreciate how easy it is to work together - she took the time to learn about my courses and my clients and intended audience as well as my voice.  Everything she writes is very authentic and sincere.  In addition, she is very creative and will often come up with a great topic for a blog article that is very relevant to what my audience is craving."

Elaine contributes content for our learning modules, programs and blog and we’re absolutely thrilled to share her voice with our community. We couldn’t recommend her more highly.'

Jody Warren | Balance2Life, Psychological Services

 

'Elaine is a truly amazing writer. She can work to specific briefs, incorporating SEO and a tailored style of writing. She was curious to discover my voice and write on my behalf for my target audience. The quality and research she puts into each article are outstanding. Highly recommended.'

Catherine T. | Private Content Writing Client, Positive Parenting Services

'Elaine's commitment to delivering outstanding, high-quality content is one of the core reasons we've continued to work with her over the past four years. A powerhouse of knowledge with incredible experience to boot, Elaine is reliable and understands the pulse of the topic she's writing on. She's also a thorough professional, who often goes the extra mile to turn around tight deadlines without compromising on quality. It's my pleasure to recommend her.'

'Elaine puts so much care, attention, and creativity into every article she writes. Her enthusiasm to pitch new ideas continuously leaves me inspired and keeps our content fresh and relevant. She has single-handedly revamped the freelance writing tips section on our website with her realistic and inventive strategies that are practical and so helpful to our community.  Her writing style is articulate, empowering, and always of the highest quality. She is a joy to work with! '

Kailey Brennan | Write or Die Tribe

"Working with Elaine has been a breath of fresh air for our blog content. Elaine has executed the brief we have given her perfectly and the quality of her work exceeds all expectations."

Conor Cotton | Not Going to Uni, Education Services

'We have been working with Elaine to develop engaging, fun, and informative content for our blog for a few months now. In short, she's a bit of a superstar! She is a dream to work with, needing only an initial conversation to understand our audience, goals, and conversational tone before taking the reigns with confidence and skill. She obviously loves what she does and takes her work seriously. I'd recommend her to anyone so long as she doesn't become too busy and we can't continue to access her fresh and fun word skills!'
