Freelance Writing, business copywriting, manuscript critiquing & general editing
If you are in need of a creative dynamo who can work to professional standards, in collaboration or independently, all while meeting a deadline, then look no further!
My diverse skills and multiple degrees have equipped me to take on any number of projects. I have designed and edited newsletters for university departments, program booklets for national conferences, websites, and T-shirts for nonprofit organizations — to name only a few of my feats.
My full credentials are compiled on the About page, while my laurels are regularly updated on the Publications & Awards page. Please send project questions, requests, and specifications to jen.michelle.mason (at) gmail (dot) com.
Editors and book packagers who need magazine articles or work-for-hire manuscripts should know that I have published nearly a dozen books for large and small presses. My work also appears in a variety of online and in-print news outlets.
I enjoy finding new angles on familiar topics and I excel at translating complex topics into terms young readers can easily digest. I am comfortable interviewing experts and prefer hands-on research; for instance, I once crawled into a burial crypt to sniff a 200-year old skull!
Having a professional wordsmith in your corner is akin to how pro athletes use trainers to up their game. For several years, I have helped local businesses and nonprofits:
- tone bulgy brochures and wordy websites
- punch up presentations
- conversationalize commercial blog posts, status updates, and newsletters
- compose engaging advertorials and press releases
- arouse emotions to make products and mission statements more meaningful
Whether I work solo or teamed up with your on-staff marketer, I provide engaging content full of vivid storytelling. I can even provide targeted tutoring to help you hone your strongest communication skills. My rates generally align with the Editorial Freelancers Association and I work flexibly so that organizations and companies get the quantity and frequency of content they need.
Writers looking to hire me to critique their work ought to know that I have helped clients score multi-book deals and reach the top ten on Amazon’s best-of categories. I have assessed literary novels, children’s books, memoirs, and scholarship essays, among various other things. To learn more about these services, visit the Critique Consultations page.
