Professional Freelance Writer Directory

Information for Clients

Are you tired of being bombarded with pitches from unqualified writers when you advertise on classified or bidding marketplaces? If you're looking to pull your next writer from a more professional pool, look no further.

The All Freelance Writing Freelance Writer Directory features only experienced professionals. You can browse their profiles below by category or search for any keyword related to your project and use the contact information each writer provides to discuss project details with them. (Note: All Freelance Writing allows writers to advertise their services, but is in no way involved with the hiring process or client-freelancer relationship beyond that.)

Not finding the perfect match in the directory? Consider posting an ad on the freelance writing job board instead.

Information for Writers

Most high paying freelance writing jobs are never publicly advertised. Clients frequently search for qualified writers independently. They find writers through referrals. Or they receive direct queries. Help those clients find you with a listing in our professional freelance writer directory.*

If you're looking for advertised gigs in the meantime, consider browsing my freelance writing job board, where I post ads direct-from-clients as well as curate ads from other sources (the vast majority featuring pay information so there's no guessing before you take the time to apply).

Profile Summary

I am a trained policy analyst with an ecology background and more than 20 years experience in natural resource conservation. My experience has given me a deep background in issues related to natural resource management, wildlife and habitat monitoring and conservation, and ecosystem services. I possess a well-rounded set of skills in research, program development, interviewing and outreach to landowners and conservation audiences, and writing. My results-oriented perspective has been shaped by five years of field experience as a land manager for The Nature Conservancy.

I have diverse experience as a successful writer. I write for nonprofits, trade associations, corporations, and agencies on the web and in print media, focusing on research and communications that require a synthesis of science and policy or economics. My specialty is putting wonky science policy information into plain language. Finished products - as author and co-author - include white papers, strategic conservation plans, land management plans, government case studies and reports, grant proposals, and educational materials. I also freelance for magazines.

Experience / Education / Qualifications

How to Contact Me


* My emphasis is on featuring more experienced writers. I set limits on rates accepted here (no less than $50 per article / per page / per hour), so you don't have to worry about getting lost in a sea of beginners or extremely low-priced writers in the all-too-common "race to the bottom" marketplace bidding structure. Here you can have a presence in a <em>professional</em> marketplace for a <strong>one-time fee of $24.95</strong> which helps weed out inexperienced writers while also helping to support this site.
