About Creative WordCraft

A Professional, United States-based Writing Group

Set aside any preconceived ideas you have about writing companies or freelancers – at Creative WordCraft we have developed a content writing system unlike any other.

First, we have an exceptional level of experience in crafting quality, relevant and engaging content for websites, blogs, articles, press releases, and many other modes of the written word. Second, our focus is on quality, optimized content that engages readers, and we have the ultimate goal of gaining new customers or clients for YOU.

The need for quality content has never been higher. It can be tough to post fresh material, week in and week out – but this is what is necessary for companies that want to advance. We do everything we can to make it easy for our clients – from our work with large companies, to the website developers we work with, to our individual corporate clients. We are extremely flexible and able to craft content in any style, for any industry. Need an eBook? We can write it. Need to make sure your blogs are interesting, engaging and address current thought trends, Google searches, or industry advancements? We are ready to get to work for you.  Need fresh website content, or are about to launch a new site? Let us help. If it is the written word, we can do it. We are American content writers, and we never outsource our assignments. We are obsessive about quality.

Our methodology is different – we know our writers, and we have in-house editors so that our submissions are error-free and meet the specs our clients ask for – and they vary widely in scope and complexity.

TINA PHILLIPS

TINA PHILLIPS

Content Writer

As a freelance writer, I have steadily expanded my experience with different forms of writing. I started out editing, then composing newsletters for optometry clients via a consulting firm client. That led to writing training manuals for dental staff and technical tutorials for an innovative online referral system for dentists. Since then, I have written hundreds of web pages for many legal websites, including utilizing SEO strategies. I also have written many pages for several different dental clients for a nationwide dental marketing company. One of my more challenging projects was writing about black vinegar for a non-English speaking client in Japan. Ever read product descriptions on Amazon? I’ve done several of those too. I love writing to help individuals and businesses get their names and brands out there, to increase traffic and sales as well as provide quality, useful information for target audiences. Continuing education in writing web content, direct response and other forms of copywriting is a regular activity for me so that I can keep abreast of current trends and practices. Creative writing also finds a spot in my schedule just to keep me from getting too serious!
