Need words? I've got them.

Why struggle with writing when your skills lie elsewhere? Why waste time? I'm a writer and editor who offers crisp, compelling, accessible copy that will connect with your readers and customers.

I've spent more than 20 years as a journalist, features writer and editor, honing exactly the abilities you need. If you want clear language for your website or your book, or for articles, brochures and collateral support material, letters or any other communication, I can turn drab text into clear and effective copy that will give your readers a great first impression.

I have edited and/or written thousands of stories about travel, food, health and science, government issues, politics and the arts. Tell me what you need and I'll write it for you.

Next Gen Florida Oyster Farmers - Edible Orlando
While most of Florida’s oyster farms are on the Gulf Coast, one sits closer to Orlando, in the Indian River North, between Edgewater and Bethune Beach. Owned by Dennis David and his family, the Indian River Oyster Co. began in 2017 with a couple of hundred thousand oysters. David predicts he will have more than a million seed oysters by next year.

The Mozzarella You’re Eating Is Probably Fake. The Real Stuff Is Only From Here - Fodor's Travel

Jennifer Greenhill-Taylor has been a journalist for more than three decades, working in a variety of positions in several newsrooms since getting her degree in Communications at University of North Florida. Currently a freelance writer/editor, she has supervised staff writers and edited freelance stories to produce weekly travel sections and biweekly county sections. Successfully dealing with both daily and weekly production deadlines honed her ability to balance long-term planning with attention to detail.
Positions including county editor, wire editor, copy editor, film and theater critic and feature writer helped fine-tune her writing and editing skills. An earlier career in medical research imparted a deep expertise in health and medical writing. Her work earned awards from Florida Society of Newspaper Editors and Florida Press Club.
She is also a skilled event planner, having helmed book signing parties, cultural events including literary readings in New York and Orlando and music festivals, theater performances, wedding receptions, and cultural exchange performances.
Jennifer was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and writes about Scotland for travel publications. She became an American citizen in 1976 in Washington. She has lived in four countries and a dozen states, and travels widely for pleasure and profit. She lives in Orlando with her partner, playwright and freelance writer Joseph Reed Hayes.

  • Feature and article writing: In-depth articles or snappy one-liners, my years of experience in news, entertainment and research writing lets me deliver clean, accurate and eminently readable copy.
  • Proofreading: If your writing is polished but needs a final check for simple errors of spelling, capitalization, punctuation and grammar, I offer low rates and fast service.
  • Basic Copy Editing: Revise to remove unclear wording, awkward sentence construction or repetitions. Changes will be highlighted so there is no misunderstanding what has been changed. In areas needing clarification, I'll insert a question or suggestion for us to discuss.
  • Moderate to Extensive Rewriting: If your text needs rewriting and reworking, I offer an advanced editing option, to address problems of structure and organization, context and unclear constructions. Changes will be highlighted and we will discuss my suggestions before they are implemented.
  • Single page resume: Word version of your resume for interviewing; HTML version for posting to your website, online job boards or Facebook; Formatted text version for email inclusion
  • Press releases, business cards, brochures, marketing, advertising: Your public face outside the Internet is just as important as your online presence, whether it's a tastefully simple business card or a full ad campaign.


  • An experienced journalist with a successful 30+ year career in major daily newspapers and a track record at providing first-rate web content. I take the rough edges off other people’s writing and turn it into clear, crisp and compelling language. Successful at long term planning while recognizing the absolute importance of small details.
