Freelance Writing

Kristi Arnold, freelance writer

Since 2008, I’ve dedicated my professional time to freelance writing. I am a loyal, hard-working writer who has experience ranging from crime news reporting to organic and green living online articles. I have extensive journalism experience in both print and online media and seek challenging projects and opportunities.

I have experience as a copy editor, editor and manger, but also take direction well during assigned projects. I seek positions that effectively use my more than 10 years of experience in freelance writing, reporting and editing.
