Welcome to my publishing credits! (And you thought I used the occupation “writer” to sound fancy) These are contractual publications, listed with the permission of the clients. I have completed additional work, but I don’t have permission to share those pieces. (Oh, well)
If you’re interested in seeing my range of work, this is a perfect demonstration. My tone and style remain fairly consistent (once a geek, always a geek), but my audience shows some variation.
Testimonials are provided at the bottom of the page, in case you want to know how my clients feel when working with me (I’m not bragging when I say I’m all-around amazing).
Synchronicity produces some amazing twists of fate. I submitted this article to Offbeat Bride back in May, and it ended up getting published the week of my wedding!
What can I say? Most of my background happens to be with animals. (Writing what you know is never a bad thing) This little milestone represents my first non-Upwork position, however.
- Most of the articles SHOULD go under my author page. However, not all of them did (don’t ask why). The outliers I’ll list here:
Yes, a break from the animal-related world. I’m now a regular contributor to the “This Week in Literary History” section of the Biwell Hollow Literary Newsletter. It’s not a complete diversion for me, considering I live in the writing world. Besides, stretching my brain in a different direction is good for the neurons. Plus, it’s another byline credit, and those always make a freelancer feel good.
This represents an editing job (so, no, the writing isn’t mine). Yes, the shop owner is my sister. However, she tasked me with editing her crochet patterns. Interesting work as I need to reference proper crochet lingo to make sure I do the work properly. I also edited the text of the shop for her. As she continues to develop her patterns, I pitch in on the edits. Not a bad gig, if I say so myself.
Welcome to my first contract featuring a byline! I can’t tell you how excited I was to see my name associated with my work, not to mention a bio beneath each article. To achieve this within just two months? Yeah, felt pretty darn good.
- My articles for Bone and Yarn include both informational and product reviews (my first foray into product reviews).
- As a regular contributor at Bone and Yarn, it’s easier to refer you to my Author page than link every title (particularly as this is an on-going contract)
April 2020-June 2020
I haven’t always been able to put my Marine Biology degree to work, so this contract was a treat. I REALLY put my search skills to work finding the stock images. It turns out, finding fish isn’t as easy as I thought!
