I am aware you have other candidates vying for your attention, so I'll get right to the point: you will find very few who possess proofreading, editing, and writing skills as finely honed as mine. I am experienced with print and ebooks, blogs, newsletters, short articles, press releases, proposals, presentations, and business correspondence. If you require and desire the best, look no further.
Should you wish to test my skills, I welcome the challenge. I am seeking part-time work, and am available 15 to 20 hours each week. I have a strong preference for working from home, and I am fully set up to do so with grace and efficiency.
My computer skills encompass both PCs and Macs, and I know Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat and Photoshop.
Below this message you will find my resume, as well as links to samples of my writing. I am happy to provide more if you wish.
Thank you for your kind attention and gracious consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
