I have experience in editing, public relations, writing and translation.
I graduated university a few years ago with a 2:1 where the bulk of my course related to media in a socio-cultural context and much of it was history or philosophy based so I count those as interests. I minored in creative writing, which I must admit was my favourite aspect of university because I got the opportunity to be a featured writer in several poetry evenings organised by the college. When not writing for work, my usual style would fall under that of poetic prose and have had the honour of being published in several independent literary magazines. In regards to publishing, I have done several editor/copy writer internships as well as editing publications, reports, website content and novels in paid roles. I would be most interested in editing or writing jobs but I do have other areas of expertise.
I worked as a freelance translator and French tutor throughout my degree. In my capacity as translator, I have had varied experience. I've translated minutes, correspondence, promotional material and academic texts mostly from English to French but also occasionally the other way around. I have also acted as translator for visitors in meetings and business transactions. I have tutored very young children, teenagers and even one or two adults. I am completely fluent in French; speaking, writing and reading so I am willing to translate anything but I would probably turn down offers pertaining to medical or scientific journals and texts because I am unfamiliar with the jargon pertaining to those topics. I just would not feel right taking your money for something that I couldn't possibly give you a quality guarantee for.
I have worked in public relations as a means of steady employment to fund my more creative pursuits. In this role I have helped run social media campaigns, put out releases, moderated web content, communicated with press and been involved in planning events ranging from fashion shows to charity auctions so I would be completely confident in my abilities to aid you in anything PR related.
In regards to writing or editing; I am willing to work for a reasonably low price in order to build a working portfolio on this site. My rate for translation will depend on the type of text it is and how long it is and the same for PR or social media management. This is especially true if it's an ongoing position.
I am happy to furnish a more detailed work history or any additional information upon request. Please contact me with any questions you may have regarding my experience as I am weary of giving too much identifiable information over such a public forum.
