Writing

Projects in writing can be broad and various, so here are the areas I can provide help:

ARTICLES
• print publication     • web content
• news                              • blogs
• reviews                         • press materials (press releases, bios, etc.)

Print Publications & Websites
I enjoy keeping up to date with entertainment and pop culture. I’m mostly familiar with writing for music industry and currently forging my way to write more about mental health, however, my writing is not exclusive for music and mental health. I am open and quick to adapt to work efficiently on writing projects in other subject areas.

Reviews
I love discovering new things and can offer my opinion on these subjects and more: music releases, concerts/festivals, TV show, movie, anime, food/restaurant, travel and video games.

Press Materials + Bios
From living in Los Angeles and working in music, I have corresponded and collaborated with industry folks, more specifically publicity firms, so I am familiar with different styles of writing for press releases. In addition, because of established connections with music artists, they have reached out to me to write press materials, artist bios and website content.

TRANSCRIPTIONS
transcripts
• editing/proofreading

I have been a freelance transcriptionist, and I worked remotely with a company in Los Angeles, CA, transcribing reality TV closed captioning, live comedy sets and more. In the past, for various publications, I have written interview questions, coordinated and conducted interviews, and transcribed and edited the interviews into text form with 100% accuracy.

GENERAL BACKGROUND—
Writing has been flowing through my veins since youth. Whether it was a diary, poetry, short stories, scripts or more, I am always writing creatively.

In middle school, I started accumulating spiral journals filled with countless poems and lyrics, and in high school, I joined the Literary Club and published some of those pieces in the club’s zine. For my college courses, I preferred essay-based classes, which allowed me to continue honing my writing skills academically, as well as creatively. I also started a Tumblr page in college, which is where I first started publishing my poems online.

Living in Los Angeles and working in the music industry, I continued writing lyrics and poems in addition to editorial articles with publications. Since moving back to Texas, my love for writing rekindled, and I’ve been on an inspirational surge to self-publish creative works in the forms of poetry collections, coming-of-age and romance novels, and feel-good self-help books.
